Login issues and NO HELP TECH SUPPORT
I upgraded to a brand new iPhone and downloaded this app. I attempted to log into my acct and got an error basically saying pswd is wrong or too many chik fila accts have been logged into from this device (401). I called in and was told to change my pswd and I declined I used the same pswd for all food apps so that is NOT the issue. I went to a browser and logged in just to humor the agent. I was told they were gonna refer it up the line and check my email for follow up and there was not eta...REALLY REDICULOUS.
NOW 3 days later I get a response to update the app, then remove the app which is dumb. If I just remove/add won't I get the latest version...but don't forget it is a new phone which I called my carrier to reconfirm. Did it anyway..gave in to the pswd change and STILL GETTING THE SAME ERROR!! No more chik fila for me because I use the app and pick up my order with no wait...I'M NOT GOING INTO THE STORE TO SCAN AND WAIT!! REDICULOUS CUST SERVICE! By the way since I have up on the app...I logged into my husband acct with no problem! So pswd not the issue and "too many accts" is not the issue. Not sure how many allowed per device but now I have one and it's not even mine..can't access and use my points conveniently! ABSOLUTELY REDICULOUS!!
Terrible customer service response time
I purchased food at roughly noon through the app and received a “503 error”. I then went in to the store and paid for my food the old fashion way. About 7 hours later I got a notification saying my food was ready, and my card was charged and my free sandwich reward was used.
Tech issues happen, I get that, but the customer service is TERRIBLE. I’m currently on hold as I write this. I emailed in a few weeks ago with no response. After a few days I called in after I didn’t get a response. I was told my issue was being handled by a “regional manager” on the first call. No time frame was given on a resolution which is fine I guess. Here I am, 3 weeks later without a resolution and I can’t even talk to someone on the phone due to hold times. I was kicked off the line while waiting to talk to a rep and I’m on hold again.
When the app works as intended (it usually works fine), it’s an excellent app. However, when things go wrong you have to rely on the customer support team to give a resolution within their policy. I can no longer order food from the app with confidence due to the poor customer service experience. If something goes wrong on the app, expect to have your money tied up for weeks and even months. I don’t even know if my issue will be resolved at this point. It’s a shame because the app works so well most of the time and the user experience when it works is excellent.
Can’t add multiple gift cards or multiple orders. Account switch limit
One star! The old app allowed you to stack multiple Chick Fil A gift cards but the new one does not. My local grocery only sells Chick Fil A cards in multiples of $10. I buy them there for fuel rewards. $10 doesn’t feed my family. Additionally the new app won’t let you place an additional order for food if you forgot something. You must pick up your first order before the app allows you to place another. This means going in and standing in line to place an order for the additional item. This wastes a lot of time! Some rewards won’t let you redeem two in the same order so this reduced functionality forces you to complete the first order to be able to redeem your treat reward in a second order.
One more thing... old app remembered the previous Chick-Fil-A login email and the new one does not. I buy multiple cow calendars and now it’s more work to log out of one account to redeem the monthly treat and then log into another at the same Chick Fil A visit usually. For example we will use my account for my calendar treat and then my son’s account for his calendar treat of the month. Old app remembered the previous email address to save time typing it in but new one makes you delete it and type it all out. Inefficient!
Your developers should be ashamed of themselves for butchering the app! Please bring back the original superior app!
Confused CFA Guests
As a Team Member, I feel obligated to express some of the thoughts guests express to me about the app, because we run into a lot of problems with it at my CFA. Rewards are too hard to get to and slow down the flow of ordering. Why is the most important option of Rewards (Redeeming in store) the last page? I often have a hard time telling guests how to get to that page and have to just point at their phone. That's weird. We should be able to explain to guest how to get to this page in simple phrases, like click the button in the top right hand corner. Not click the present (you have to say present because the font that says "Rewards" is to small to read) Then swipe over in the top 1/3 of the screen twice. Thats weird, and we often say like "sorry our app is a little weird" to guests to make them to feel like its their fault. Overall, there's a lot of messy parts. Guests also try to scan to pay and don't know they didn't hook up money, and this is just because the font on button is just way to small. In Florida, about 50% is 50+, and you we cant depend on them being able to read the very small text so we just say tap the 1st or 2nd button, but it would be much easier if everything was just readable. I hope these thoughts help in improving the app. :)
CFA CARES customer support
This is more of a review of the app’s customer support service than the actual app itself. Received an email that $100 was transferred from my bank account onto my CFA app. I immediately changed my password and deleted my stored card from the app. I called the listed customer support number to try and file a claim in order to get my money back. I was basically told an investigation would be started in 5-7 days, and to contact my bank. I had no problem with this and was already planning on contacting my bank to cancel my card. When I requested a confirmation number or email, so that I have some kind of proof that I actually contacted CFA, I was told by a very rude supervisor “we don’t do that.” When I questioned this and asked how would I know my claim is being handled, the supervisor informed me “that’s our job and if we didn’t do it, we would be fired.” After I explained to the supervisor that was unacceptable, he abruptly hung up on me. Are you serious? I requested some type of proof that I contacted CFA and that is the response I get? I’m not sure if the customer support team is outsourced for CFA, but I expected more. Especially from a company that prides themselves on excellent customer service. Hopefully my bank will handle this and return my money, because I certainly can’t rely on the CFA app customer support team.
A premier app for an unparalleled restaurant.
It is no surprise that the Chick-Fil-A app/reward program is superior to other fast food apps/reward programs since their food and service are superior to begin with. Really and truly the original Chick-Fil-A app/rewards was pretty good, but this new updated version sets itself even further ahead of any other fast food app I have used (and I have tried/use several others). Ordering and paying could not be easier from choosing a location, items from the menu (meals or individual items), choosing sauces, adding special instructions, changing payments, and submitting the order. The app even tracks your location (when enabled) to send the order when you’ve arrived (or close to arriving if you choose) for the freshest meal possible. Every time I use the app to order (now about 95% of the time I go) my meal is ready upon my arrival (and everything is completely correct!). I can’t say enough how superior this app is to other fast food restaurant apps out there; yet again Chick-Fil-A proves they are unparalleled when it comes to fast food chains.
App Hacked, Nothing Was Done
When I discovered that someone hacked into my Chick Fil A app and was using my credit card to add money to a digital gift card, I immediately called customer service. The representative admitted it’s very likely someone did hack my account and discouraged me from deactivating it. I took his advice and instead changed my password, enabled Touch ID and removed my credit card information from the app and called the card company. My card company handled everything perfectly, but the next day I discovered my account was still being used by someone on the other side of the country. I called Chick Fil A customer service again and he submitted a form to have my account deactivated. It’s been a week, my account is still being used by the hackers and nothing has been done on Chick Fil A’s part. I’m shocked by how hard it has been to keep my account secure. Even though I’ve enabled Touch ID and changed my password, it seems as though there’s no way to force a log out so whoever used my account the first time is still able to do so. And I don’t have the capability to deactivate my account myself because of the outstanding balance the hackers put on the digital gift card linked to my account. As soon as I get customer service to do their job, I am deleting the app and will never re-download.
Yay for Chick-Fil-A!
My family and I LOVE Chick-fil-A! I use the app more often than any other app on my phone. I’ve been a “red member” since day 3 of downloading it. I only request one change, when ordering curbside, could you add an “other” option for vehicles... I’m a paramedic and have to grab and go sometimes. When our food is brought out they are looking for a “red truck” because we can’t fit in the drive through but, a “red truck” is not usually associated with an ambulance so we have to catch the person with our food before they quickly see that there is no “red truck” in the curb side pick up area and go back inside (we don’t fit in those parking spots either). If we could have a option to fill in “ambulance, fire truck, police car, 18 wheeler... etc.” that would just take this app to the next level! My co-workers and I would be even more ecstatic that we could be more specific and get our delish food without any confusion to the amazing teams that save us in our time of hunger. Either way, the app is great and makes getting food easier for us.
why YOU should get Chick Fil A
By isndkgsbskag snak
Please read the whole thing. Chick Fil A is my pride and joy. when i’m feeling down, and fry, upset, hangry, hungry, or my heart is broken, Chick Fil A is my cure. my usual order is a 12 count meal with either a coke or lemonade. first of all, this lemonade is exquisite. so juicy, sweet, but the perfect amount of tartness. next of all, it is grilled and friend also perfectly. when i eat it, i am filled with happiness. it makes my day usually once or maybe twice a month. i am usually a pretty healthy person but i would do and break any rules to eat my chick fil a. during the global pandemic, unlike any other fast food restaurant, chick fil is not touching anything of yours, so things don’t spread. not only that, but i notices that there were around 15 workers helping at cars so the line would go faster. i was practically outside of the chick fil a drive through and i only spent 5 minutes durning my visit. my food was EXCELLENT. not only warm, but hot. Chick fil A will always be my go to snack, or meal. i love chick fil a with a passion and will never give up on it.
My 2 cents because I use the app daily
By Stephanie Lovett
So there are three complaints I have, but at the moment I can only think of 2:
1. When loading money into the app I love that there are different payment/card options. However, I cannot pick anything less than $25 to reload. I would like for the amount to be adjustable to MY personal situation. I understand people miskey and may make the mistake of adding more funds than intended, but if the top threshold is $100 then I don’t see where the big problem is.
2. I have a lot of rewards, and last time I made the mistake of picking a frosted lemonade instead of the milkshake. The picture look almost alike so it was silly mistake while dealing with 4 kids in tow. The manager couldn’t back out of the reward to pick the right now, but thankfully the points were the same for milkshake & frozen drink so it wasn’t a big deal. The problem comes when one may double tap the wrong reward (happened to me!) and then you have 2 fries when you only wanted one.
3. Will come back to give feedback
