Our favorite Wendy’s Winter tradition is coming back. This November and December, Wendy’s Frosty Key Tags will sell for $2 each. And the tag will get you a free Jr. Frosty with any purchase for an entire year. The $2 Frosty tag is one of the best Wendy’s deals all year and, like the Wendy’s Boo Books, purchases benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
There isn’t a limit to how many Key Tags you can purchase, so it makes for an awesome (and cheap) stocking stuffer.
What are Wendy’s Frosty Key Tags?
Both digital and physical Wendy’s Frosty key tags will be available every November and December. Each $2 tag will get you a free Jr. Frosty with purchase for an entire calendar year.
Given that each 6-oz Jr. Frosty sells for $1.89 every day, the Frosty tag is a no-brainer.
Frosty tags sold in 2022 will become active beginning Jan. 1, 2023, and remain valid until Dec. 31, 2023.
How can I purchase a Frosty Key Tag?
Wendy’s Key Tags go on sale starting Nov. 1, 2022, through Jan. 31, 2023. You can purchase a physical Key Tag in person or a digital Key Tag through your Wendy’s Rewards account for $2 each.
Just ask your server or navigate to the “Give Something Back” section of Wendy’s online menu to get your Key Tag. You can purchase as many physical Key Tags as you’d like, but digital Key Tags are limited to one per Rewards account.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use your physical Key Tag for your Wendys.com orders or your digital Key Tag for your in-person purchases. But you can buy one of each to cover your bases — it’s only $4.
TIP: If you bought a physical Key Tag, you get an additional freebie while you wait for the New Year — free any size fry with purchase through Dec. 31. You won’t get the same deal with a digital Key Tag. To add the offer, tap “Scan” in the Wendy’s app, select “Upload Offer”, and scan the QR code that’s on your keytag.
How often can you use your Frosty Key Tag?
Digital keytags can be redeemed once per hour and physical key tags once per transaction.
There’s no official time frame for how often you can get a free Frosty with the physical key tag. In theory, you could get one free Frosty in the drive-thru and then pull back around and order another one with your physical key tag in a separate transaction. It’ll depend on your cashier.
The digital key tag gives you a coupon in the Wendy’s app, and once you use it, you’ll get another coupon an hour later.
How can I earn more free Wendy’s Frosties?
The best way to earn free Wendy’s Frosties is by joining the Wendy’s Rewards program. You’ll earn 10 points for every $1 spent at Wendy’s, and when you earn 150 points (or $15 spent), you can redeem your points for a free Jr. Frosty. Plus, you’ll get a free Jr. Frosty as a birthday reward.
These are just a few of the Wendy’s menu deals that can get you discounts on your next Frosty.
