Wendy's adds free chicken nuggets deal on Wednesdays for holiday season

Free chicken nugget deal called 'Wendy's Wednesday'

Wendy’s is giving away six free chicken nuggets to customers who partake in a mid-week deal that the fast-food chain has just introduced.

Under the new "Wendy’s Wednesday" deal, buying something through either the fast-food chain’s app or website will enable customers to get a free order of six-piece nuggets, Wendy’s said. The deal kicked off Wednesday and will stop at year’s end.
