If your New Year’s resolutions include eating more french fries, Wendy’s is offering up some great deals that will help you reach your goal.

Now through Feb. 27, you can get a free medium order of fries with any purchase on any day once a week. That’s eight free orders of french fries just for picking up some food, a soda or a Frosty (for dipping the fries in!). The offer will refresh in the Wendy’s mobile app once per week.

The chain has even more fry deals every Friday (Fry-day, get it?) in January, this time earning you other free food items with a medium fry purchase. For example, you’ll get a free spicy chicken sandwich on Jan. 7,  free 10-piece crispy or spicy nuggets on Jan. 14 and a free medium Frosty on Jan. 28. You can also score 200 bonus points with the purchase of a lunch or dinner combo on Jan. 21, which is enough points to get you a free small fry.

These deals are a good time to try Wendy’s new fries if you haven’t gotten the chance yet.

The Wendy’s culinary team tested more than 20 different cuts and shapes and settled on a shape for the new fries that has a thick and thin side: thick for heat retention and thin for crispiness, according to the company.

The new fries are natural-cut, skin-on and made with real potatoes. They also allegedly hold up to dipping in sauce or even a Frosty, and Wendy’s is so sure fans will love them, they come with a “Hot & Crispy Guarantee.” The guarantee means Wendy’s will replace them if they are in fact, not hot and crispy.


For a deal not related to the new french fries, you can get a free drink when you buy any Wendy’s breakfast sandwich beginning Jan. 10. The deal includes any drink, from Frosty-ccinos to lemonade or soft drinks. 

Just a few other deals you’ll find in the Wendy’s app include $2 off any salad, buy-one-get-one offers for $1 hamburgers, $2 off any lunch or dinner premium combo and $3 off your $15 in-app order every day in January.
