You’re Not Crazy, Buffalo Wild Wings’ Half-Off Tuesday Deal Has Disappeared

If you’ve been to a Buffalo Wild Wings lately, you’ve probably noticed that the posters, flyers, and commercials for their famed Tuesday half off wing deals are no more. It’s not just your local restaurant, as this is a nationwide thing with all company-owned stores removing the popular wing deal that often offered traditional wings for about $0.60 per wing.

The reason for Buffalo Wild Wings removing its traditional wing special can be traced back to recent sales reports that didn’t look so hot. Not to mention wholesale wing prices have slowly gone up.

Jumbo chicken wing wholesale prices have risen by 20%, costing an average of $2.09 per pound in August, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The restaurant acknowledged the rise in wholesale wing prices were a problem, while its earnings dropped by 60% in its second quarter this year.

The demand for wings is just too high, with U.S. consumers putting in more than 1 billion wing orders from June 2016 to June 2017.

This whole clusterf**k of a situation means that Buffalo Wild Wings had to make a change, luring people more toward its other menu items, without making it look like they’re alienating their wing-loving fans.

You’ll still be able to get nice specials from the restaurant, but in the form of buy one, get one free boneless wings. The reason they’re pushing boneless is because, well, they’re not really wings, and they’re made with cheaper chicken breast meat.

You’ll also notice they’ve started pushing their “Shareables” menu a lot lately, hoping you’ll forget about their traditional wings.

They’d even rather offer you unlimited fries before hooking you up with traditional wings:

With NFL season just around the corner, the last thing we want to hear is that there are chicken wing problems occurring in the U.S. I guess we’ll have to get used to grubbing on their appetizers and boneless wings more, or just pay full price for traditional.

Buffalo Wild Wings Wants To Take Over Taco Tuesdays With 1/2 Price Wings

bdubs

Gone are the days of 50-cent wings at Buffalo Wild Wings. All that’s left is the nostalgia of stuffing your face for $5, and the limited time deals they throw out every once in a while.

Their latest deal is trying to compete with our beloved Taco Tuesdays, as B-Dubs announced that they will start offering their wings at half-off on Tuesdays. That means their on-menu Snack, Small, Medium, and Large sized traditional wings will have the discount applied. It does not work for boneless, unfortunately, but does include a side of celery and carrots with ranch or blue cheese.

If you’re an a la carte kind of person and aren’t familiar with their traditional wing sizes, the Snack size comes with 5 wings, Small has 10, Medium has 15, and large has 20. The largest size usually goes for about $26, so on Tuesdays, you could max out those 20 wings for about $13.

It sounds like they needed a reason to bring people in on Tuesdays this fall. Their Wednesdays and Thursdays are covered by their 75-cent specials. Fridays, they get the weekend warriors ready to leave behind their work worries. Then Saturday through Monday, football has the wing restaurant popping off.

It’s going to be tough to convince the taco-loving community to switch things up, but discounted wings would at least make them think about it.
