How To Eat For Free All Summer Long

Stay full during the summer without spending a fortune.

Summer is meant for being out with friends, and that means grabbing food at all hours of the day. But when you’re on the go 24/7, eating out can quickly add up. Thankfully, there are tons of fast food deals to take advantage of during the long summer months.

Here’s our roundup of the best fast food deals and freebies you can snag right now (and during the entire summer).

Who doesn’t love a meal for $5? The “$5 Your Way Meal” includes a small sandwich (like a Whopper Jr.), chicken nuggets, fries, and a drink.

Jack in the Box

The chain recently launched the “Jack Munchies Under $4 Menu.” It includes regular items, including the Jr. Jumbo Jack, Two Tacos, and French Toast Sticks. There are also digital offers available like Taco Tuesnight, Midweek Munchies, and free delivery on weekends.


KFC has a $5 meal available, which includes a chicken thigh and drumstick (with your choice of breading), a side of mashed potatoes, gravy, and a biscuit.

The $5 value meal is back, but it’s only here for a month, starting on June 25. The meal includes a McChicken or McDouble, four-piece chicken nuggets, fries, and a drink.

Raising Cane’s

Raising Cane’s is giving away free Box Combos, which include four chicken fingers, crinkle-cut fries, Cane’s sauce, Texas toast, coleslaw, and a fountain drink.

To snag a free box, simply head to your nearest Raising Cane’s and ask to join the Caniac Club. You’ll get a red card to register online or in the Cane’s app, and once you verify your email address, you’ll get an offer for a free Box Combo.


Don’t have $5? Then head to Sonic, since their deals are under $4. Aptly titled the “Under $4 Menu,” which gets you a corn dog, hotdog, quarter-pounder double cheeseburger, or a hot fudge sundae.

There’s also a limited-time deal in the app or online deal that gets you a half-priced shake after 7 p.m., which includes caramel, strawberry, or hot fudge.

Taco Bell

More $5 meal deals, this time courtesy of Taco Bell. Their $5 Cravings Box includes any signature item (like a Chalupa Supreme), a starter (like a soft taco), a side, and a medium fountain drink.


Looking to eat breakfast for just $3? Then Wendy’s is the place to go. Choose between a bacon or sausage, egg, and cheese on an English muffin with a side of seasoned potatoes.

Wendy’s also has Biggie Bags on their menu right now. The deal includes a small sandwich, chicken nuggets, fries, and a drink.
