Did a survey for Popeyes by phone. Answered every question they ask about my visit.

Now I am at the part wwhere I give them my phone number to see if I won. I could not even enter my phone number because I guess Popyeys ran out of room in order for me to enter it.

I could not even place my number in their system. That survey is just a scam to find out how you were served in THEIR store and to get your email.

Popeyes you should be ashame of yourselves and stop misleading people to believe they could be a winner.

Location: Guntersville, Alabama

When I did not win, I smash my tv set. I would like Popeye's to pay the cost for a new set. I would also like reimbursement for a new set of teeth because I chipped my tooth when I was smashing the tv.

Just FYI, literally any form that asks you for your email address only exists to collect email addresses. They might dress it up with "participate in this contest" or "join our newsletter" but the whole point is adding more emails to a list that they can send spam to.

I would also like to say, I tried to log-onto www,popeyes.com, & I just kept a runaround, & never would take me to the site where I could enter my info to get a validation code#.

Guess they either need to give us the free 2pc chicken & biscuit w/o having to pay almost $2. for a drink.

What a ripoff/scam !!

!

What a sore loser, the person did not win so she thinks no one wins. Well even if you won they would not let you keep the prize since you have to be 13 to enter.

#1019994

I would like a popeyes in Guntersville I'm disabled an can't drive to Gadsden or Huntsville please help me I love Popeyes

#902528

Okay, I have two different receipts on the same day. I cannot get a validation code for either one.

Rip off!!

#848500

This isn't true. I do that survey all the time and always get my validation code for my two piece chicken.

You must've been doing it wrong...

Plus you can't use your same phone or email... You're only allowed to enter once per every 30 days.

@PissedConsumer848500

my receipt doesn't even have a date or time. what a joke.

#810793

I aggree. I did the same with the validation code for the chicken dinner and no validation code ever appeared.

#805654

A few other restaurants do that. It's just a waste of time.

They just want you to take a survey, that's it. There's never any prize.

#805634

I agree with you. I've taken that *** at 8 times, no validation code generated....Scam

#782681

From what I can gather, just make sure you write in approximately 15 digits, with the first 4 or so being a believable price, and make sure the last digits are a date that is within the last few days. The last time that I did this, they did't even check it.

I had to buy a drink, and they gave me the food. End of transaction!

#753561

If every one post their validation code then after some time we can figure it out, how this validation code is made.

like mine is:

Amount:5.51

store :11360

date : Dec 02, 2013

so they give me the code:

551111****120213

if break down this code, we get:

551 1 11*** * 120213

AMT Store MMDDYY

but in b/w the #1 and after that #2 is mystrious?

please send ur codes too then we can easily figure it out and get the free chicken with out any survey:)))))))

thanks, bobby

#698951

Here's my code

359881****206****

Subtotal 35.98

Store 11179

Date 062113

Cant figure out the code either

#659761

I just did mine. They did send me an email response. And in it, it's "click this link..." and the link is broken. It points to ww1.empathica.... and there is no host by that name.

I manually "fixed" that by changing it to "www1.empathica" as well as "www.empathica" and then ended up with a "Page not found 404" error with a some babble about:

"The page /sxml/popeyes/popeyes_bounceback.jsp could not be found. at allaire.jrun.jsp.JSPTranslator.loadClass(JSPTranslator.java:149) ..."

But I noticed in the URL also they have

unitcode=XXXXX&validationcode=YYYYYYYY

So I'm hoping the validationcode= part is the code.

It's a stupidly long number, they actually expect us to copy this by hand onto the back of a tiny receipt? Maybe if the *** page worked, it would just give me an actual printable PDF file, I don't know.

I like their food. But if this is what they're going to offer, it'd be better for them to NOT offer anything, than continue this convoluted mess. Definitely makes me just want to go back to KFC.

Maybe it's "empathica"'s fault, whoever they are. But it wouldn't kill 'em to at least try and go through their own @"#$ survey at least once.

#580047

THEIR SURVEY ABOUT FREE CHICKEN and BISCUIT is ALL *** FILLED OUT THE SURVEY AND NEVER RECEIVED THE CODE. IT WAS MY FIRST TIME FILLED OUT A SURVEY BECAUSE I NOTICED THE BACK OF THE RECEIPT AND THUS I TRIED IT.

HOWEVER, I REALIZE I WAS JUST A ***. SCAM

#538307

yes, it is a scam..I did the survey but never get the code from email. check spam box everything.

There is nothing. cheap ***!

#533444

Thought it was scam too, when did not email me validation code. Googled some research on Popeyes survey.

Well somebody mentioned they found Popeyes code link in their spam box. I checked my spam box & found the survey link to the validation code. So they do send it, but it's prob in ur spam email box. I already used my code for free biscuit & 2 pieces when purchasing large drink.

Here's my code if y'all wanna use it. It's pretty long for survey codes: 757611****080610

#648969
@PissedConsumer533444

That code won't work for everyone. There is a formula to how they do their codes (at least that's true for Northern VA Popeyes).

It's the total; ex. $4.18

the store number; ex. #2750

the date; ex May 6 2013

and some random numbers I am not sure how they fit into the survey. The complete code then looks like this:

041890****105****

You can see the total from the receipt, the store number and the date.

#515687

Same thing happened to me on 7-18-12. Went online for survey and awaited a Validation Code at end for 2 piece chicken offer.

No code and No chicken. Clearly a ripoff to extract email and personal info. Second attempt next day to resubmit was denied as their system acknowledged the first submission. Therefore, order the chicken deal and DO NOT PAY.

Give them your receipt and tell them to verify their own offer and reward. They can go 'sticken their chicken'...
