Even if you’re not a hockey fan, a free chicken sandwich or half-price pizza is a good thing. A few Lightning food promotions are back this year.

Tampa Bay Lightning fans can score some freebies again this season when the Bolts win. And after two Stanley Cup winning seasons in a row, the Bolts have given those trying to lose some weight a tough go of it. Three of the team’s popular promotions are back for the 2021-2022 season.

  • #1: Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwiches

    This is the one I get asked about the most. And yes, it’s back. When the Lightning win a home game, open the Chick-fil-A app about 30 minutes after the final buzzer. You’ll have until midnight to claim a free chicken sandwich or biscuit. You then use your mobile app to get the freebie the next day at most Tampa area Chick-fil-A locations. If you have location services turned off, you may not get the deal because it’s exclusive to Tampa Bay area fans. Also there are times when the freebie doesn’t pop up in those first 30 minutes. If they forget to post the freebie, they usually have it in there the next morning. But they’re never quick unfortunately. You’ll usually have to close and reopen the app a few times until it finally pops up.

  • #2: Culvers Food

    Show your ticket (on your phone) at a Kane’s store within a week of a game where the Lightning scored at least 3 goals. You’ll get a coupon for either a value basket or a concrete mixer. If you didn’t go to the game, you can get the offer at Kanes3Goals.com.

  • #3: Papa John's Pizza

    Just like when the Rays strike ’em out, you get a half price pizza at Papa John’s when the Lightning win – home or away. The day after a win, use the promo code BOLTSW in their app or on their website to get the deal.


  • #4: Wendy's

    When the Bolts score 4 or more goals or get a shut out, fans can get a free Wendy’s Double Stack burger the next day. This one isn’t in the Wendy’s app, you just have to know to ask for it. You also have to hope the employees know about it. If you need to, just ask for a manager if an employee doesn’t know about the promotion. It’s also not a bad idea to show them a tweet from the Lightning. The team usually posts to Twitter about the free burger during or right after the game.
