Is it just me, or does it seem like there's a day dedicated to literally everything these days? There's National Coffee Day, breadstick day, donut day, pancake day, ice cream day, pie day, etc., etc. Not that I'm necessarily complaining because I mean, who doesn't love amazing deals and freebies of delicious food? But still, it does get hard to keep track of. So buckle up, because National French Fry Day is just around the corner, folks, and here's where to get free fries on National French Fry Day, because your kids will be all for it.
For starters, the big day dedicated to fries is Friday, July 13, according to Delish. So even though it will technically be "Friday, the 13th," there will be at least some luck coming our way in the form of free/cheap fries. So it isn't all bad, right? (Just avoid breaking a mirror, crossing the path of a black cat, or walking under a ladder... just to be on the safe side.)
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem as if any chain restaurants are giving out free fries without any other purchase. However, if you're planning on making a trip to any of the locations below anyway, it's definitely worth taking advantage of the following National French Fry Day deals.
If you place an order for $1 or more, you can use the McDonald's mobile app to scan a code and receive a free medium order of fries, according to People.

Um, yes please!
