  • Can you schedule a pick up time when you redeem the prize?

    • +1

      Scheduling is possible on the same day. After you place your order, the restaurant doesnt action your order unless you tap "I'm inside the restaurant". So you may order anytime, and then when you go in there, tap "I'm inside the restaurant" or go in your order history and advise your order number to the staff, and they will action it.

  • Redemption of stashed prizes has opened up in 20 hours (although FAQ has mentioned 24 hours).

    • Can confirm; I redeemed a prize yesterday around 1630 and can redeem again today 1420.

  • Flipped an Original Recipe into a Zinger Stacker + got a 15pc bucket, today's been a good day
    Would love to get a box meal though…

    Today app actually worked with ordering too, yesterday my order was stuck in limbo somewhere (in my order history, but not in their system)

    Pending redemption, what’s next?

    • +1

      Yeah same problem. Cant try adding again because I've apparently started the 24 hour timer without even ordering

  • +3

    Everytime I flip the coin even if I upgrade the item to a better one it vanishes from my stash =\

    • Happened with me. Flipped a Mountain Dew Freeze and got Ultimate Box. And it vanished, not appearing in my stash at all. Submitting a support request from the app - no updates yet since 3 days.

      • +1

        Yeah I have lost 5 items now I have been flipping the drinks and even if they win they vanish afterwards. So I wont flip anymore better to just find the next bucket

  • Anyone redeemed 15 pcs box successfully?

    • +2

      Yes I have 2 hours ago.

      • Did you request it manually? I can’t place online pickup order though

        • I want to know too!… Can't find 15 pieces on the menu for a few pick up locations in Melbourne CBD.

          • @Solx: Didn't request it manually, just through the app just like how you would normally place an order.

            I'm in Sydney though.

  • Anyone get anything other than food?

  • +1

    Have 4 items (had 3 then got 2 before checking stash) and get prompted to remove one, but can't remove one and can't toss what I got, so I'm unable to redeem anything.

    App is extremely buggy.

  • Anyone solve red screen of death? On Android.

    • No but I had trouble with the app version just before this one. This fixed it: Uninstall, reinstall, log in with username/password. Then go to Settings, Apps, KFC app, clear the cache/memory, then try it. Note: It's possible just clearing the cache would have worked. But I didn't think of doing that until after I'd already removed/reinstalled. So I listed everything I did in case the reinstall helped fix it.

    • You just need to try again when the servers aren’t having a moment

    • +1

      Also solved (Only had ONE prob with KFC app before - was a bit iffy once with accepting PayPal out of dozens of go's).

      OK, (make sure already have an account or try to sign up 1st) so major Bucket Hunt Fail on 5G/wi-fi

      … - Uninstalled, Reinstalled, DON'T open app YET, went to App Settings, Allowed :-

      Location (while using app)
      Storage [I think app wasn't asking for any permissions like it should]

      Opened and logged back in Success - annoying music aside [and map seems to need clicking often on Arrow icon to update position].

      Got my free chips - Tailed & got free Pepsi Freeze - oh well, will be fun using whilst out shopping - I did miss the option to click the [Always] use the KFC app when I tried checking Stash, so it might use the website more often than required.

    Looks like the buckets aren’t obtainable this morning

    • Same here.

    • Yep, same here in Coburg.

      • Same.

    • probably doesn't help when people are botting spins :)

  • +1

    I've had success flipping a 15 piece bucket for a hoodie and for a $50 eftpos card. Limited sample but about 1:5 chance.
    Am yet to win a non-food prize from a direct spin.

    • is there a trick with the flipping a coin?

      • Nope. Just flip and hope.

        • -2

          is your mock location still working?

          • +2

            @angelkulit025: Yes but the app isn't working. Can't claim a bucket.

    • Is there a way to skip the spin animation or you've actually waited 4000 times? Because that's impressive as heck

    • -1

      How do you claim the hoodie and eftpos card?

  • Is there any way to remove an item from the stash? How are people getting so many spins?

    • +1

      You can do this when you spin another prize.

      • How did you get 4000 spins? I could barely get 5 buckets legitimately.

        • -1


        • Probably have 20 android emulators running at the same time. Rather than mining for cypto mine for kfc, So the limit is the amount of food one can eat as well as non-food prizes

    • +2

      How are people getting so many spins?

      The douchebags are cheating

  • +1

    Trying to use GPS spoof to find buckets however popup doesn't appear to spin bucket anyone else having this issue, can it be fixed?

    • I think this exploit might have been fixed now. Also cannot gps spoof.

    • I can't get baskets to show the popup at all now

      • Me, too. It worked for the first one only.

    • It was doing this to me on the first day as well, might just be server problems again

    • No free KFC for you, you (attempted) cheater! 😂

      • -2

        Show me the spot in the terms of service it says you can't use a gps changer :D

    How do you turn off the stupid sound in Bucket Map???

    • +5

      Found it… under How to Play screen

      • Thank you, it's been driving me insane lol

        • -4

          Too bad. with iphone we have a silent button :D

          • -3

            @overule: Got downvoted for being a iphone user.

          • +3

            @overule: OP9 has a mute switch too. Otherwise on every other phone there is obviously the ability to mute all sounds.
            You think that it could've been possible there are other sounds exist in the world such as music one wants to play at the same time?

            No, you weren't downvoted for being an iPhone user you were downvoted for being ignorant.

  • +2

    Damn looks like the chance of getting a hoodie or cash prize are getting lower with people using gps spoofers.

  • +2

    And we're back

  • Spin right seems to get better prizes IMO

    • unsure if app developer would code that but I will follow your lead

  • +1

    Anyone able to redeem stuff through android? I keep getting webpage unavailable.

    • I get the same

      • I figured out why, it was adguard, I had private DNS on. Turned it off and it works fine now :)

        • Ahh thanks, it was adblocker for me too.

  • Flipped the nugget buck for a double zinger burger. Not bad! Claimed it last night with no issues.

  • Andddd redemptions not working again hahaha

  • +2

    Tried to claim and it charged me full price for my prize haha


    • doesn't work at some stores, try another

      • +1

        The prize is gone from my stash too

        I emailed their support let's see where it goes haha

        • Just clear app cache and sign back in app

        • +1

          I had emailed their Support on Tue, 15-Jun when on Flip, I upgraded from Mountain Dew Freeze to Ultimate Box. It vanished from my stash and showed "Prize 3 Empty". Yet to hear from them, I think they must have been bombarded with many such complaints.

          • @djoz: Same thing happened to me when I did it 30 mins ago. Also frozen drink to ultimate box lol. Not sure if it's worth to complain

        • Yep I had popcorn chicken disappear from my stash as prize 3 :(

        • Just to update

          KFC found the transaction and is refunding me.

          Just a bit slow the process but it works.

          I would revoke neg if I can but I can't

    • +2

      Same with me. It appears to cost full price (not free) at checkout. This game is a joke.

      • +2

        If I choose my local KFC there is no discount, but picking a different store it's allowed. Not worth the time and petrol to go to different store. Not the first time KFC has wasted my time with dicky promotions.

  • red screen

  • Guys turn off your anti popup ad software if you're having trouble redeeming…

  • +1

    Has anyone been able to redeem 15 pieces of chicken successfully? If so, how? As all I get is that it’ll charge my card. And it charges my card (it got declined as I only keep $15 in my Debit Card)

    • Change to another store, some aren't working. It shouldn't even ask for payment info if working.

      • Changed to 6 other stores near me and still doesn’t seem to work :/ rip. Expires in less than 24 hours.

    • Haven't redeemed Yet (only Pepsi Freeze coin toss), But ALWAYS when Building Your Own Bucket app adds ≈ $18-$20 extra at the start, then REMOVES the extra charge as a negative on your order list before you pay for it - no idea why (Minimum purchase set up, but then wiped in App?? Or something to do with how app works with PayPal/Credit Cards?).

    • I tried all the stores in and around Sydney CBD. None works. All only show a discount of $4.

      • redeemed 15 pieces of chicken at St Leonards Station store.

    • Yep just redeemed at bethania qld. Was some damn nice chicken. No issues with the whole process. Got another bucket while in drive thru

      • damn, lucky. tried everything from logging in logging out. restarting phone. but after clicking checkout, it still wants me to pay something. care to share any tricks you did?¿

        • Strange. Mine went straight through.
          Originally I had to delete the app and redownload to get anything to work.

  • +11

    The daily reset (to allow another purchase) appears to happen at 2:30pm, not at 24 hours after previous purchase.

    • Wondered what was going on. Thanks for the info

    • So if you redeem at 2:29pm you can technically redeem again one minute later at 2:30pm? For example like Zinger burger + large chips?

    • Something weird is going on for sure. My orders are in WA time? Even tho I've never been and all my orders have been in AEST location.

      Mine reset at 2pm (VIC/NSW) time so I think it actually reset at 12pm in WA.

  • +2

    App is bugged. It charged me money despite redeeming the prize.

    • Same with me, but I didn't let it charge anything.

  • I found the time running too fast, when I see there still has 2 mins, when I near get there it took 30 seconds off and I just missing it.

    • Time does seem to jump at the end BUT seeing only Bucket (didn't check earlier) was 6 kms away beside a fricking river with 2 minutes to go :-

    Just a heads up
    Got charged for redeeming a free pepsi.

    Complained to customer service and haven't received a response.
    Yes it's only $1 but it's the principle.
