The burger chain recently has its 2023 promotion of 12 Days of Holiday Offers line-up, starting on December 9 and continuing through December 20. Featuring a rotating collection of free and half-price deals, diners can expect beloved items like the Frosty and cult-favorite Wendy's chili to be offered for free with any other regular purchase.
