How To Get a Free Wendy's Croissant Breakfast Sandwich This Weekend

Wendy's is offering free breakfast sandwiches on August 13 and 14 with "no purchase necessary," the company said in a statement Tuesday.

The statement read: "Wendy's fans can start their day with good fortune in the form of a free Sausage, Egg & Swiss or Bacon, Egg & Swiss Croissant—no purchase necessary. That's how you wake up on the right side of the bed."

How to Get Your Free Wendy's Breakfast Sandwich

To claim their free breakfast sandwich, customers can "just show up" at a participating Wendy's venue during breakfast hours from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. local time. "Yep, it's that simple," the company said.

The offer is limited to one free sandwich per customer per visit at participating restaurants and is available while supplies last.

The offer excludes the Maple Bacon Chicken Croissant. The free sandwiches cannot be claimed within a combo deal or with any other offer, the company advised.

Why Is Wendy's Giving Away Free Sandwiches?

Wendy's said the latest freebie aims to bring "positive vibes to everyone's morning" through this "Friday the Thirteenth Weekend," according to the statement Tuesday.

"Walk under as many ladders as you like this Friday the 13th because Wendy's is making sure luck (and free breakfast) is on your side," the company explained.

The announcement of Wendy's latest offering follows Monday's launch of McDonald's new "Saweetie meal," the restaurant chain's collaboration with American rapper Saweetie.

The Saweetie meal includes a Big Mac, 4-piece Chicken McNuggets with two sauces ("Saweetie 'N Sour" and "Tangy BBQ") as well as medium fries and a medium Sprite soft drink, according to the McDonald's website.

McDonald's said the meal is served in "icy new packaging" inspired by the rapper's "own style."

The Saweetie meal is available now for a limited time only at participating U.S. McDonald's locations.

It can be ordered using the McDonald's mobile app, purchased in-store at participating restaurants—including via drive-thru—and through McDelivery, the company's delivery service.

The fast-food chain's latest menu collaboration follows the company's other recent meal collaborations, including with global K-pop band BTS as well as U.S. rapper Travis Scott and Colombian singer J Balvin.

Back in May, a teenager worked at a Wendy's in Utah for 10 minutes to bag some free food.

Footage of the teenager, named Cody Rieffer, was uploaded to TikTok by his friend, Nick Eldredge, on his account @nickeldr.

Rieffer, seen wearing a khaki-colored T-shirt and blue jeans, could be seen mopping floors behind the counter and portioning out French fries in the clip.

He is then shown walking away with his hard-earned food, with the overlaid text on the video noting: "He asked to work for 10 minutes for free food," along with a laughing-face emoji.
