The App That Helped Me Survive 2020


The App That Helped Me Survive 2020

2020 has been a crazy year, to say the least, hasn’t it? A friend I recently met was telling me about how she was taking this year to reflect and find the joy in everyday things around her — so, taking a page out of her book, I wanted to share this with you! 

So, without further adieu, let’s talk about the app I absolutely couldn’t have survived this year without! (You really shouldn’t be that surprised, honestly…) 

Chick-fil-A One App

Mannnnn, oh man. The app is my second favorite thing that Chick-fil-A has ever created — next to Chicken Minis, of course.

The number of conversations I’ve had with Chick-fil-A apppeople that {usually} start with me saying something about wanting Chick-fil-A and end with “I didn’t know they had an app!!” hurts my heart a little. There are so many reasons you should be using this amazing app, but I’ll just give you my top few!

I mean, who doesn’t love free food?!

Every time you use the app, you get points for every dollar you spend! And if you’re like Hunter and me (or you have a few kiddos in tow) that can rack up pretty quickly! Depending on what level Chick-fil-A rewards member you are (Chick-fil-A One member, Silver, or Red) determines how many points you get per dollar you spend. Basically, shoot for the Red Member status. You’ll rack up the free food a lot faster! 

We all know how well Chick-fil-A serves their customers — and when you’re a rewards member, it’s even more evident! Individual restaurants will sometimes gift you a reward, just because! I’ve gotten free milkshakes, biscuits, nugget entrées, and more!

Order ahead on the app!

Although Chick-fil-A has the fastest drive-thru line on the face of the planet (no actual research was done here, but I’m feeling pretty confident), you can save even more time when you order ahead! 

All you have to do is pick your restaurant, put your order in, then choose how you’ll pick it up. Drive-thru, curbside, or carry-out are all available at most locations. Once you arrive, you’ll tap the “I’m Here!” button in the Chick-fil-A One app and they’ll bring it right to ya!

One important thing to know about ordering ahead is that they don’t start actually putting your meal together until you tap “I’m Here!” I personally love this because I don’t want my food sitting in a bag getting soggy for 15 minutes while I’m on the way to the restaurant. This is just something good to keep in mind so you can plan accordingly! (I’ve still found this to be faster than waiting in a long drive-thru line, honestly!) 

Speaking of saving time… 

The Chick-fil-A One app saves your recent orders!

If you’re anything like me, you’ve got your go-to that you order preeeeetty frequently. The app actually saves your recent orders (customizations and all!) so that you can add it to your order without having to go through the menu! We love this for our custom orders — more to come on this!

Pay using the app! 

In today’s relatively contactless world, this is so important for a lot of people! You can save a credit card, debit card, or gift card in your account on the Chick-fil-A app, or you can load a balance right to the Chick-fil-A One card. This works similarly to the way you can pay with the Starbucks app. It’s really helpful for the times you put your purse in the trunk and realize it when you get to the window — or when you realize you didn’t bring your wallet with you in the first place! (I mean, hardly anything is more depressing than getting to the window just to find out you can’t take that sweet, sweet chicken home with you- amirite?!) 

Customizing your order is easy!

There are sooooo many options when it comes to customizing your Chick-fil-A order. The app makes it quick and simple! Don’t like pickles? Take them off! Want extra? You can do that too! 

Add bacon, sauces, tomatoes, cheese (yes, please!), or choose a multigrain or gluten-free bun. And for those of you who need to cut back on your salt intake (or like me and just don’t like salt), you can actually order the fries without salt!! Talk about game-changer, my friend! 


If your family is like ours, Chick-fil-A is a staple in your house. So, why not rack up some free food along the way!? Now, go download the app, if you haven’t already! I’ll see you soon {prob with a CFA milkshake in hand}!
