Gold Star has brought back its popular Who Dey Way promotion this football season, wherein every time the Bengals win a game, you win, too. 

The day after every Bengals victory, fans can snag a free regular or super 3-Way, 4-Way or 5-Way when they buy one — basically BOGO ways — at any Cincinnati-area Gold Star location. 

And lucky for us (and the Bengals), they took home a win last night (Sept. 12) at their season opener against the Minnesota Vikings, ending the game 27-24. 

"To receive your Who Dey Way the day after a Bengals win, simply mention the Who Dey Way special when placing an order. The promotion — available for dine-in, carry out and drive-thru orders — will be available for the entire 2021 regular season the day after Bengals’ victories," says Gold Star. 

The promo started with the team's home opener and runs through Jan. 9, after their game against the Cleveland Browns.

“The start of football season brings excitement, joy, hope. And in Cincinnati, it means it’s a perfect time to enjoy chili with friends and family as we root for our Bengals,” says Roger David, president and CEO of Gold Star, in a release. “Who Dey Ways are one of our most popular offerings throughout the year and we’re looking forward to serving up plenty to football fans following wins all season long. Who Dey!”

The Bengals announced on Aug. 17 that Paul Brown Stadium will be operating at full capacity for the 2021 season. That's a change from the 2020 season, when the team played many of its regular-season games to small or no crowds due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic (pre-season games were canceled). The stadium has a capacity of about 500,000 people.

The Bengals also said stadium operations are going cashless. Fans will use credit cards, debit cards or mobile payment methods throughout the stadium, including at all concession stands, retail stores and roving vendors.

Tickets also have gone mobile, the Bengals said, with all tickets stored within the Bengals' mobile app.

Gold Star, the official chili of the team, is giving away four tickets and a $25 gift card to Bengals' home games throughout the season. Visit to enter.
