Here’s where to see fall foliage on a road trip in the United States. Elizabeth Keatinge has more.
There were freebies for the first day of spring and even more freebies and deals for the first day of summer.
On Saturday, there’s a small bunch of bargains to welcome fall.
And one of the best is from Wendy’s. For the last couple of weeks, the fast food chain has been giving away free cheeseburgers daily to customers who present a coupon on its mobile app.
While the burger deal continues through Sept. 30, starting on the first day of autumn and continuing through Oct. 7, Wendy’s is giving away free salads too.
The new salad is the chain’s first fall salad and features apples, brown sugar walnuts, feta cheese, smoked bacon, warm grilled all-white meat chicken breast and apple cider vinaigrette.
Unlike the free burger promotion, there’s a limit of one free half-size salad per mobile account. The fine print of Wendy’s coupon also notes “limit one offer per customer per visit.”
For a limited time, Wendy’s is also selling small Frosty treats for 50 cents.
