Get a free breakfast sandwich from Wendy’s

If you haven’t had a chance to try Wendy’s new breakfast menu, they’re offering up a deal that will definitely make you want to check it out.

Now through Aug. 23, the fast-food chain is handing out a free maple bacon chicken croissant with any mobile purchase through Wendy’s app. All you have to do is download the app and check the “Offers” tab. It should be viewable there.

The deal is valid during breakfast hours only and cannot be used with any other offer or within a combo. There is a limit of one offer per customer, per visit.

The sandwich is a savory-and-sweet combination of chicken, applewood-smoked bacon and maple butter on a flaky croissant bun. You can pair your free sandwich with a coffee and seasoned potatoes if you’re looking for a full breakfast.


Of course, this is not the only item on Wendy’s breakfast menu, which launched in March. The menu is broken into three categories: sandwiches (made with croissants, biscuits or buns), sides and coffee drinks, along with a few extras.

If a maple bacon chicken croissant isn’t your thing, you can also get croissant sandwiches made with egg, swiss and either sausage or bacon. You can also get biscuit sandwiches, biscuits and gravy, or get your favorite sandwich as a combo with a drink and a side of seasoned potatoes.

When it comes to coffee, choose regular, decaf, cold brew or a vanilla or mocha Frosty-ccino, which is cold-brewed coffee swirled with Frosty mix and served over ice.


The menu even includes a breakfast version of their Baconator burger, appropriately called the Breakfast Baconator.

The sandwich swaps a hamburger patty for grilled sausage and ketchup and mayonnaise for a swiss cheese sauce. It also comes with a slice of American cheese, an egg and, of course, bacon.


Will you be taking advantage of this deal and heading to Wendy’s for your free maple bacon chicken croissant?
