Currently you get one stamp when you spend £3, or spend £15 and you get two stamps.

Once you collect enough stamps, you can claim a free reward.

When you have seven to ten stamps, you can buy a normal snack, e.g. B. a mini fillet burger.

“Stopping stamps… But what about stamp rewards that we have already collected, will they be valid until the original expiry date? Eg September 2022 for me,” added a third.

KFC has confirmed that customers can continue to use all the stamps they have collected and take their reward to the next level.

According to KFC, if you have less than three stamps in your account on July 25, 2022, you can qualify for a free page, and if you have between three and six stamps, you can still get a free snack.
