Hate your ex? Want a cathartic way to get over them — while also getting free chicken wings?

I thought so.

Hooters is running a fun “Shred Your Ex” promotion, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

When you destroy a photo of your ex, Hooters will give you 10 FREE boneless wings with the purchase of 10 wings (approximate cost: $8.99). The offer is redeemable on Feb. 14 only.

Here’s how to get your revenge and your wings…

How to Get Free Wings for Shredding Your Ex

When it comes to destroying a photo of your ex, you’ve got two options: in-person or online.

If you go the in-person route, bring a photo of your ex into the nearest Hooters on V-Day, where the restaurant will shred it for you and give you free wings.

Don’t have any printed photos of your ex?

Because we’re true penny hoarders, we found a way you can get a free 8-by-10 print at Walgreens; just order online using coupon code FREE8X10FEB and select in-store pickup.

Though I have a feeling the in-person shred is the more gratifying choice, it also might be more work than your ex is worth. If that’s the case, you can virtually shred your ex’s photo.

Visit Hooters’ website, take a short quiz and upload your ex’s picture. Based on your responses to the quiz, Hooters will virtually shred, burn or bury your photo. (FWIW, I got “BURN” when it came to my most recent ex.)

After watching the photo get destroyed, enter your email address to receive a coupon for your 10 free wings.

They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but after seeing this promo, I think I’ve changed my mind… Revenge is a dish best served with free chicken wings!   

Your Turn: Do you have an ex you’d like to shred?
