Free fries Friday at Jack in the Box
Placeholder Image
The taxman may cometh on April 15th, but Jack in the Box restaurants will giveth on Friday, April 16, by offering guests a free small order of the chain’s new French fries on that day. No purchase is necessary, and the giveaway is limited to one order per guest for the day.

The new Jack in the Box fries feature a crispier outside texture that really enhances the potato flavor and helps them retain their temperature.

The new French fries are available at participating Jack in the Box restaurants in three sizes – small, regular and large – and normally priced at approximately $1.39, $1.79 and $1.99, respectively, plus tax.
