Get A Junior Frosty From Wendy’s For A Year For $2, But…

WendysFrom time to time I like to write about fast food, primarily focusing on international McDonald’s locations. (I most recently wrote about how McD’s now has a permanent online shop.)

I’ve also written about Jollibee, a Filipino chain a few times. Let’s not forget about Shake Shack, my favorite fast-casual burger chain.

For those of you who are fans of Wendys, I have a deal for you!

For a limited time, Wendys is offering a Frosty Key Tag for $2.

This isn’t just any key tag, it has some special bonus offer powers. Purchasing a Frosty Key Tag qualifies you for a free Junior Frosty for a full year!

Of course there’s got to be a catch.

To get your daily (free) fix of Frosty Juniors, you’ll need to make a purchase at Wendys.

I’d still consider this $2 purchase an excellent deal if you like Frostys for a couple of reasons.

  1. A Junior Frosty costs 99¢, so after 2 redemptions you’re already breaking even minus a couple of cents.
  2. 85% of the money raised from the key tags go to a good cause. The money gets donated to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to help children waiting in foster care find forever homes.

Some Rules:

  • Frosty Key Tags are available for purchase until 1/31/20
  • Redeem for free* Junior Frostys through 12/31/20

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I find this to be a very solid deal, especially since it’s for a good cause.

I more than likely won’t be purchasing a Junior Frosty Tag since we rarely dine at Wendys. However, if we happen to stop into one during our road trip during winter break, then I might consider purchasing one to support the cause.

  1. “ To get your daily (free) fix of Frosty Juniors, you’ll need to make a purchase at Wendys.”

    Does this mean that you have to make a purchase each time you want to get the free Frosty?

  2. An FYI. While the vast majority of Wendy’s U.S. locations sell and offer redemptions of the key tag, not all locations participate. This is more often the case at stadium, airport and truck stop locations. The key tag promotion has been offered by corporate for several years and while a good cause, as there is no minimum purchase required, owner/operators lose when guests just purchase the bare minimum to obtain the Jr. Frosty.

    It hurts margin and increases labor costs without a return on these low dollar tranasctions.


  3. Please note that .99 cents is really less than one penny. Either use $.99 or 99 cents. Using the decimal point means 99/100 cent; or less than 1 cent.
