The official terms and conditions for gift card use that are published on Wendy's website do not list any specific menu items that cannot be purchased with a gift card. The terms state that customers can use Wendy's gift cards to pay for food and beverages from the restaurant.
Customers can purchase Wendy's gift cards online via Amazon.com or buy cards directly from an employee at Wendy's. Card holders cannot exchange gift cards for cash payments or debit-card credits, nor can they resell the cards through an unauthorized vendor. Inactivity fees are not assessed on the cards, and the cards do not expire.
Sometimes, Wendy's executes promotions for a single menu item, such as the Frosty Key Tag Program. As of February 2015, this promotion is still active, allowing holders to redeem the tag for a complimentary Jr. Frosty. Proceeds from the promotion go to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Wendy's carries multiple beef and chicken options, including hamburgers and chicken nuggets, as well as several vegetarian-friendly options, such as salads and chocolate Frosty drinks. Numerous items are available on Wendy's Right Price Right Size menu, which offers budget-friendly burgers and beverages. Chili and chicken wraps are also found on the restaurant's menu.
