CHICKEN lovers can get hold of six new offers this month at KFC that will save them money.
The fast food chain has revealed cheap dinners that include popcorn chicken and hot wings throughout May.
You can get hold of each of the KFC offers in different ways – but we’ll explain where you can find each one and how long they are available for.
Wing fans can indulge in a bucket of 20 hot wings for only £5.99, a saving of up to £4 on the normal price of wings.
Usually you’ll pay 99p for two hot wings, or you can get a meal that includes 10 wings along with a drink and fries or side for £8.59.
The hot wings deal is available until July 4 and only in KFC restaurants – you won’t get it for delivery.
That means you’ll have to get get it for takeaway currently, as dining in is not allowed under lockdown rules, or via drive-thru.
May meal deal discounts as KFC
KFC has six deals running through May. Here’s where you can get them and until what date.
20 piece hot wing bucket for £5.99
- In restaurants only, for takeaway and via drive-thru – not online
- Until July 4
6 Piece Popcorn Variety Bucket for £15
- For delivery from Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Just Eat

- Through Deliveroo only
- Ever Wednesday in May, so until May 2
Trilogy Box Meal for £5.50
2x Mighty Bucket for One Meals for £10
10 Piece Family Feast for £13.49
The last time KFC did this deal was back in January. Normally the fast food favourite doesn’t do wing buckets in this size.
If wings are not your thing, you have plenty of other options too, including family meals.
The second deal KFC is doing in May is a six piece popcorn variety Bucket for £15.
You can get this when ordering via Deliveroo, Uber Eats or Just Eat until May 31.
This is one for families or meeting up with friends: it comes with six pieces of chicken, two large popcorn chickens, and two sides.
We’ve asked KFC how much this usually costs and will update when we hear back.
Other similar bucket meals with six pieces of chicken, but different sides and extras, range from £14.99 for a bargain bucket to £19.99 for the wicked variety bucket.
Don’t forget that you may also have to pay for delivery and service fees on top when ordering through delivery apps.
How much this is can depend on the app you use, your location and how much your order is in total, so it’s worth checking before you hit that order button.
The third deal this month from KFC is Wing Wednesdays.
This offer gives you 20% off hot wings every hump day through May, starting tomorrow, May 5 and then May 12, May 19 and May 26.
This deal is only through Deliveroo, not other delivery apps or in stores and don’t forget to check those extra fees too.
You can get the 20% off on a 20 hot wings bucket or a wings meal (either six pieces of chicken or 10).
How to save money on your takeaway
TAKEAWAYS taste great but they can hit you hard on your wallet. Here are some tips on how to save on your delivery:
Cashback websites– TopCashback and Quidco will pay you to order your takeaway through them. They’re paid by retailers for every click that comes to their website from the cashback site, which eventually trickles down to you. So you’ll get cashback on orders placed through them.
Discount codes – Check sites like VoucherCodes for any discount codes you can use to get money off your order.
Buy it from the shops – Okay, it might not taste exactly the same but you’ll save the most money by picking up your favourite dish from your local supermarket.
Student discounts – If you’re in full-time education or a member of the National Students Union then you may be able to get a discount of up to 15 per cent off the bill. It’s always worth asking before you place your order.
There are three further deals that offer money off and these are only on the KFC app to be used in stores or drive-thru (not delivery) until June 6.
The KFC app is free to download from the App Store or Google Play and you’ll need to share some personal information when signing up
You can get a Trilogy box meal for £5.50 instead of £6.99 (though prices can vary depending on location).
That’s a saving of around £1.50 and you get a Zinger burger, mini fillet, small popcorn chicken, regular fries and another side one dip and a drink.
You can also get two mighty bucket for one meals for £10 – usually these cost £6.49 each so that’s a saving of £3.80.
And the last deal of May at KFC is a 10 piece family feast for £13.49.
Usually this is priced at £16.99, though prices can vary, so this could save you £3.50.
On top of the chicken, this deal comes with four large fries or sides and a bottle of drink.
With all these deals, it’s worth remembering it depends on availability too, so check with your local restaurant first, and you won’t be able to combine these deals with other KFC offers either.
