Today is National French Fry Day: Score free food or discounts at McDonald's, Wendy's more

Happy National French Fry Day! Getting sweaty simply walking out the door in this steamy weather?

We're not sure if sports nutritionists recommend French fries as a way to replace electrolytes

but since National French Fry day falls in mid-July, hey, why not?

In honor of the occasion, several fast-food chains such as McDonald's and Wendy's

are offering up freebies or discounts Wednesday for tater devotees across the country. 

You should be aware that some require you to download their app,

sign up for alerts or make an in-app purchase to qualify for free food.

While the chain isn't offering any freebies, you can get a 9-piece order of Chicken Fries and large fries for $4.

Score free fries by signing this petition demanding that National French Fry Day always fall on a Friday.

Customers who order via Grubhub get a free order of Elevation's olive oil fries between July 13-19.
