In December 2023, Wendy's unveiled its newest creation, "Saucy Nuggs," to a few select locations in Ohio and it quickly became a fan favorite. 

Customers had options of seven flavor combinations: three mild (Honey BBQ, Garlic Parm, Buffalo) and four with varying degrees of heat (Spicy Honey BBQ, Spicy Garlic Parm, Spicy Buffalo, and Spicy Ghost Pepper). 

The best news? The fast-food chain officially brought these beloved menu additions nationwide. Well, if you have the app, that is.

Each of these "tossed and sauced" options is available on the app in 4 ($2.49), 6 ($3.49), 10($5.49), and even 20-piece ($10.49) sizes. 

While it might be disheartening to have to download an app, the truth is that the extra step that separates you from those tasty Nuggs is actually a great way to save some money on fast food in general. 

Steal this billionaire wealth-building technique

The ultra-rich have also been investing in art from big names like Picasso and Bansky for centuries. And it's for a good reason: Contemporary art prices have outpaced the S&P 500 by 136% over the last 27 years.

A new company called Masterworks is now allowing everyday investors to get in on this type of previously-exclusive investment. You can buy a small slice of $1-$30 million paintings from iconic artists, all without needing any art expertise.

If you have at least $10k to invest and are ready to explore diversifying beyond stocks and bonds,see what Masterworks has on offer. (Hurry, they often sell out!)


Serious savings

As a reward for downloading the app, Wendy's is lowering their in-app delivery to $0 until Friday, June 7, and next week, Wendy's is offering a special DoorDash promotion.

If you spend $15 or more from June 12-18, you can get their standard 6-piece nuggets for free. DashPass members will even get the extra bonus of a free pack of Saucy Nuggs after spending $20 (excluding fees and taxes). 


Fast-food apps are worth the download

It may feel like an extra hassle to download an app just to get some fast food, but truthfully, they are worth it in the long run.

Just last week, Taco Bell offered app users early access to their new Cheez-It options before they were available to the larger public. Additionally, apps can often offer bonus deals, free foods and free delivery that isn't available through delivery service apps. 

Other Wendy's app perks

And that's just to name a few of the deals available!
