Today, KFC and Flux are launching paperless receipts linked to selected bank cards across KFC restaurants in the UK.
This feature, currently available for Monzo and Starling Bank, will enable customers to see the digital version of their paper receipt for KFC transactions in their banking app. Barclays customers will be added soon via Barclays’ Launchpad mobile app.
Soon, Flux users will be able to automatically collect KFC points and rewards when they pay. This will not only save customers time at till but also guarantees they won’t miss out on any points or rewards when eating at KFC.
Flux is an opt-in platform that works across multiple banks and retailers. Their bank partners currently include Barclays Launchpad, Monzo and Starling Bank.
To celebrate the new partnership, Flux will be giving away a month’s worth of KFC to 100 lucky winners! If you spot a Golden Bucket today in London, Birmingham or Manchester, snap a selfie and tweet it @tryflux and @KFC_UKI with #GoldenBucket. You must bank with either Monzo or Starling to enter. 100 lucky contestants will win one month’s worth of free KFC, worth up to £360. Terms and conditions apply.

The feature is launching first for Monzo Bank and Starling Bank customers with Barclays Launchpad customers coming soon. Customers can now get paperless receipts instantly when they shop at any participating KFC restaurant in the UK, excluding touch screen kiosks in store.
Hazell White, CRM & Loyalty Manager at KFC UK & Ireland at KFC, said: “This is a really exciting new collaboration for us. We’re always looking to make things easier in our restaurants — both for our teams and our customers — so we’re continually exploring new technologies that we can invest in to help. We know that having to scan a loyalty card isn’t always the most convenient, so we hope this new partnership will not only make lives easier, but mean our customers never miss out on free chicken!”
Matty Cusden-Ross, CEO and Founder at Flux, said: “We’re incredibly proud to announce our partnership with KFC. Their mission to create fast and friendly restaurants neatly overlaps Flux’s obsession with seamless experiences which add no extra time at checkout. Good luck to all on the Golden Bucket Hunt!”
