    Awesome. We do have a Wendy’s. Can’t wait to get my free burger. I never look at the app even though we eat there sometimes. Never earn points either cause I always forget about it. LOL

    In-app burger offer at Applebees for our area only gives tea as the beverage.☹ I don’t drink tea. Heading to Texas Roadhouse instead where I can get an amazing cheeseburger and steak fries for $9.99 every day. I sub chili for the fries at no additional cost. The meal also comes with for delicious rolls. I order togo and save the chili and rolls for another meal.
