Talia Lakritz/INSIDER

  • McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and other chains are offering up free french fries on July 13.
  • Most of the fry deals require that you download the chains’ apps, and in some cases make another purchase.
  • Pushing customers towards app-based rewards programs has become the norm across fast food.

National French Fry Day is Wednesday, July 13, and some major chains are offering deals for the holiday.

Major chains including McDonald’s and Wendy’s are using the french fry offer as a way to push more customers towards their mobile apps. Rewards programs have become nearly essential for fast food chains to attract and keep customers. These programs have proven to be hugely advantageous for chains as they incentivize return visits and give companies valuable customer data. You’ll have to join rewards programs to receive many of the deals listed here. 

Here are the deals, and how to get them:


McDonald's french fries


McDonald’s will give all customers a free order of large fries on Wednesday as long as they order in the McDonald’s app. There is no purchase necessary for the free order, McDonald’s said in a press release. 


Wendy's french fry


Wendy’s is offering an entire week of french fry deals for National Fry Day. On Wednesday, Wendy’s fans can get any size fry with any mobile order. Thursday’s deal is focused on breakfast potatoes, which will be free with any mobile order. Finally, on Friday customers who order fries through the Wendy’s app can also get a free medium fry, Wendy’s shared in a press release.
