Friday is National Chicken Wing Day and restaurants are celebrating with free wings, discounts, new menus and contests. They are also using the day to get more customers to use their respective mobile apps in the process.

Here is a roundup of the best deals to check out this year for National Chicken Wing Day.

Buffalo Wild Wings is giving customers a chance to win free chicken wings for an entire year. To enter, reward members must simply check in on the Buffalo Wild Wings App when visiting any Buffalo Wild Wings location. The chain is also offering six free boneless or traditional wings with any $10 dine-in purchase throughout the day. Buffalo Wild Wings is using this offering to settle the debate between traditional or boneless by inviting customers to share their pick to social media with the hashtag #wingdebeate. The chicken chain said it will share the results the following day.
