In a time when most people are facing financial adversities fueled by inflation, people are constantly looking for ways to be able to save in their daily lives. Collecting coupons, and reward points is a way that many people resort to.  Such is the story of this TikTok user who tried to use her Chick-fil-A reward, only to be humiliated by the employee at the food joint. Certified Beaner took to the popular video-sharing platform and uploaded a short 6-second clip, with the overlay text, "Racked up 9k cfa points so I asked if I can use my points to redeem tenders, fries, and a drink, and the employee said 'so you want it for free.'"

The comment did not sit well with the user who captioned the video, "Acting like I didn't earn these points." The user's points had become 9,000 only because she had been buying so much from the food joint. From the time the video was uploaded, it had garnered more than 700k views and 93k likes.

Many took to the comments to talk about their experiences," they offer a meal on there so like yes girl???? I want my meal for free?!!!", writes @aubstewart, while @amaritheeunicorn commented, "I added the maximum amount of sauces to my in-app order. When I went to pick it up, a worker was like, 'We have bottles of sauce if you want to just buy one.' Why would I do that? Give me the free sauce." Many TikTok users talked about how they use coupons and rewards to save on the things they buy.

Another user talked about the time she was scorned for buying coffee using reward points, "I had a McDonald’s worker say “wow you really like free stuff don’t you?” Cause I would use my points to get a coffee every day before work," @milesanthony93 wrote, while another user @macyspore wrote, "I used my rewards for tenders and I swear they gave me the nastiest tenders just because I got them for free."
