Who doesn’t love getting a Frosty from Wendy’s? Whether you prefer chocolate or vanilla — or whether you like them simply as a dessert or as a sweet option for dipping salty fries into — they are a delicious way to complement a meal.

Well, what if I told you that you can get a whole year’s worth of Frostys for just $2 and support a great cause at the same time?

Wendy’s has brought back its Frosty Key Tag promotion for 2022, which gives customers one of the best deals available from any restaurant chain.

Anyone who buys a Frosty Key Tag — which is offered as a cute little Frosty-shaped card that goes on your keychain or as a digital-only version in the Wendy’s mobile app — will get a free Jr. Frosty every time they make a purchase at Wendy’s during 2022. The cost of the Frosty Key Tag is a one-time fee of $2, and 85% of the proceeds from each tag sold (or $1.70) is donated to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.


That foundation was created by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas in 1992 and has raised millions to support adoption 0f children in the foster care system since then. In 2021 alone, the foundation reported that Wendy’s restaurants raised $12.5 million for its operations through the sales of Frosty Key Tags and Boo! Books (a similar promotion that runs in the fall).

People in Washington, D.C. are apparently the craziest about these free treats because a Wendy’s there sold more than 10,000 of them last year, making them tops in the nation.


You can get one of the coveted Frosty Key Tags at any participating Wendy’s location, but you have to act fast, because they are only available while supplies last, and they stop selling them on Jan. 31.

Get Free Fries, Too

One of the best pairings with a Frosty is an order of fries and it just so happens that Wendy’s is running a promotion that will net you some of those for free right now, too.

You can get a free medium order of fries at Wendy’s with any purchase every week, once per week through Feb. 27. This offer requires you to use the Wendy’s mobile app. We’ve got full instructions at our sister site, Don’t Waste Your Money.
