London, Jan. 2: A UK man splashed about 1,000 pounds trying to win the coveted Nando's black card, which guaranteed free meals for life, only to realise that the competition had closed.
The chicken chain had run a promotion campaign over two years ago, which offered a black card to anyone who could provide evidence that they had feasted at every one of their 1,031 outlets around the world, Metro.co.uk reported.
However, Christopher Poole realized his mistake only after visiting 85 branches in the UK and spending 1,000 pounds along the way.
It isn't all bad news for Poole, as the chain restaurant has agreed to honor its old promotion if he could complete the global challenge. (ANI)
