How to get Wendy's new chicken sandwich for free

The humble, yet delicious chicken sandwich has been the fast food industry's favorite blunt instrument in recent times. Since Popeyes debuted its game-changing chicken sandwich in 2019, many chains have been getting in on the action — and with delicious chicken creations adorning fast food menus left and right, the biggest winner of this particular battle has been the poultry-loving public.   

The latest play in the chicken sandwich game comes in the form of Wendy's Classic Chicken Sandwich, the chain's most recent foray into the genre. According to the Wendy's website, the menu item consists of a "juicy, lightly breaded crispy chicken breast with crunchy lettuce, tomato, mayo, and the perfect pickles, all on a toasted bun," and is "a flawless blend of nostalgia and excitement — kinda like your all-time favorite song, only better 'cause you can eat it." That's a pretty alluring description, and it's made all the more interesting by the fact that the fast food restaurant chain just announced that you can feast on this treat for free! Here's how.

Your free Wendy's Classic Chicken Sandwich is just an app download away

Per DelishWendy's is indeed running a promotion that allows you to sample its Classic Chicken Sandwich for free. To be fair, this doesn't mean that you can just walk in your nearest Wendy's restaurant, open your mouth wide, and wait for the staff to fill it with a delicious sandwich. The road to a free chicken sandwich goes as follows. First, download the Wendy's mobile app if you don't have it already. Then, use it to place a mobile order, and you'll be able to add a Classic Chicken Sandwich free of charge. Alternately, you can just show the cashier the QR code from the app while visiting a Wendy's location and the end result will be the same. 

But wait, there's more! The only thing that's better than a chicken sandwich is, of course, two chicken sandwiches. The promotion runs through November 8th, 2020, and allows you to claim one free sandwich per week, so if you're quick, you'll have time to acquire two free Classic Chicken Sandwiches from Wendy's before time runs out. It's also worth noting that Wendy's has been known to run similar promos through its app before, so who knows? There might be even more free food in your future.
