Although it definitely doesn’t have to be summer to treat yourself to a frozen dairy dessert, the rising temperatures make them especially enjoyable this time of year. And even if you aren’t someone who typically frequents fast food establishments, you probably have a favorite cheap and cheerful frozen menu item—or at least one that comes with a side of nostalgia.
Perhaps you’re a devotee of the vanilla soft-serve ice cream at McDonald’s, Burger King, or Dairy Queen. Or maybe your loyalty lies with the Frosty from Wendy’s. Thicker than a milkshake, but not as solid as ice cream, this frozen dairy dessert comes with both a spoon and a straw to help you through each phase of its life cycle (from fresh-out-of-the-machine, to what’s basically thick chocolate milk).
Well, Frosty fans, you’re in luck, because Wendy’s is giving their signature dessert away for free each Friday in June. Here’s how to take advantage of the offer.
How to get a free Frosty at Wendy’s
The first thing you need to do is download the Wendy’s mobile app, if you haven’t done so already. Then tap “Offers” on the bottom right corner, scroll to the bottom of the list, and you’ll find the one for “Frosty Friday.”
For mobile orders, add at least one item, and then claim your free Frosty in the app. You can also redeem the offer in the restaurant, by downloading an in-app coupon and using it when you order. The offer is valid on drive-thru, dine-in, and carry-out orders, but not delivery.
You have the option of getting either a free small Frosty, or small Frosty-ccino (which is either a chocolate or vanilla Frosty blended with cold brew). The offer is available through June 25, 2021, but you’re only able to redeem it once a week, and it’s limited to one free Frosty per customer per visit.
