Coles has reassured customers that their policy to claim a free roast chicken is still in full effect.

The policy gives customers a voucher to claim a BBQ chicken if there are none available when they tried to purchase one in store, reports Daily mail.

The voucher, which can be collected from 11am until closing, can then be used for seven days.


The policy had recently come under debate with some shoppers claiming it is only available during certain hours at limited stores – and some claiming Queensland stores don’t offer it at all.

Coles confirmed this not the case and encouraged all customers who were unable to purchase a chicken to collect a voucher from the counter.

‘We know customers love to get their hands on our delicious hot roast chickens, so for customers who aren’t able to purchase one at the time they want within the period specified in-store, we can provide them with a voucher for a free hot roast chicken,’ a spokesperson said.

  • It depends whether you think it’s lucky to miss out when you want one, I guess.


  • You can be guaranteed that now this has been made public Coles will make sure their chickens are well stocked so they don’t have to give any away. Too money hungry.


  • Never seen this posted at any Hobart/Tasmanian stores. We always miss out with all promos.


  • Never had a freebie roast chicken before


  • Never thought to claim one before I will keep an eye out for a freebie


  • Love their chooks – would love a freebie!


  • Great reminder to check


  • I heard about it but I never buy roasted chickens.


  • I have never heard of this initiative, will keep it in mind, although my store always have plenty of chickens.


  • Never even heard of this before.


  • I didn’t know this was an option at all stores. Good to know I will definitely use this if I can’t get a chicken.


  • I wish woolies did this. Theirs are so much nicer.
