National Chicken Finger Day is on Tuesday July 27, and chains across the country are paying tribute to the classic bite with major discounts and freebies. There are a whole slew of offers you’ll want to check out that you can snag both in-store or through delivery. These National Chicken Finger Day deals for 2021 will have you set with discounts.

To give you some background on National Chicken Finger Day, the annual holiday was started by Louisiana-based fast food restaurant, Raising Cane’s. The chain, which has locations nationwide, is well known for its southern-style chicken fingers. Now, July 27 has become a special day for chicken finger lovers to come together and celebrate the southern tradition with some tasty eats.

Of course, Raising Cane’s is once again celebrating National Chicken Finger Day in 2021 with a freebie, but there are also other chicken finger deals you can score too. Fast food chains like Wendy’s are offering a BOGO for $1 deal while Beyond Meat is giving you $15 toward your Beyond Chicken Tender delivery on DoorDash. You can check out the offers below to see where you’ll get your hands (or fingers) on some tasty chicken this holiday.

Raising Cane’s is celebrating National Chicken Finger Day with a deal that’ll get you a free chicken finger when you order any combo meal using the Raising Cane’s mobile app, which is available on Google Play and the App Store, on Tuesday, July 27. One of combo meals you can choose from is the Caniac Combo, which includes six chicken fingers, crinkle cut fries, coleslaw, Texas toast, a drink, and of course the famous Cane’s Sauce.

If you’re vegan, vegetarian, or focused on a plant-based diet, you can still get in on the National Chicken Finger Day celebrations. According to an email from Beyond Meat to Elite Daily, Beyond Meat is giving customers free plant-based chicken tenders on DoorDash when you order a Beyond Chicken Tender meal from a participating restaurant on July 27. All you’ll need to do is add a Beyond Chicken Tender meal to your DoorDash cart from places like Epic Burger, Toppers Pizza, Sarpino's Pizza, or Next Level Burger — and you’ll automatically get $15 off.
