If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then it's also the most important meal for sniffing out a great deal. And right now, Wendy's is offering a morning-only meal deal that's better than any we've seen in a long time.

For only $3, you get a choice of a breakfast croissant sandwich plus a small side of seasoned potatoes — that's the burger chain's popular answer to hash browns that many consumers like better than Wendy's fries. The only thing that's missing is a drink, but if you're a frugal drive-thru regular you probably supplied that from Costco yourself. 

The sandwich options aren't exciting, but for three bucks, who needs anything but the standard bacon or sausage, egg and cheese anyway? Plus, the croissant bun is arguably the best fast-food breakfast invention since deep-fried potatoes.

You can get the deal at participating Wendy's locations nationwide now through Nov. 20, giving you almost a full month to get all the cheap sausage and potatoes you can. And unlike other show-stopping deals, you can order this one online, through the chain's app, or in person. The only catch — if you can even call it that — is that you can only get the deal during breakfast since Wendy's doesn't cook eggs all day. Looks like the early bird catches the best deals.
