McDonald’s is great for Tax Day deals. In past years, they have offered Buy One Get One Free Big Macs. Sometimes, it was Buy One Get One for a Penny. Occasionally, the Quarter Pounder with Cheese was included. This year, I was getting a bit concerned. So close to Tax Day, but no word from Micky D’s. Then, it found me!
I turned on my phone this morning and found a $1 Big Mac special on the McDonald’s mobile app! Just one dollar buys you lunch today. You do not need to use mobile ordering, but you do need to have the app installed on your phone. When you access the $1 Big Mac coupon, it will give you the option to scan at restaurant or add to mobile order. Also, this deal is only available from 11:00AM-2:00PM. How’s that for a happy Tax Day “deduction?”
Offer available from 11AM-2PM only on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at participating locations. May not be available in all areas. Check your McDonald’s mobile app to verify before heading out. Limit 1 offer per person per visit. Not valid in conjunction with any other coupon or special promotional discount. Most McDonald’s restaurants will be open holiday hours on Memorial Day (Monday, May 28.)
McDonald’s Dollar Menu was one of their most popular promotions. Eventually, food price inflation forced it’s discontinuation. For months, a NEW McDonald’s Dollar Menu was rumored to be in the works. Those rumors have now come true! Micky D’s has unveiled their $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu. As the name suggests, menu items are divided into three pricing tiers:
– $1 Cheeseburger, McChicken, Sausage Burrito, any size drink.
– $2 Bacon McDouble, 2 Piece Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Tenders, Sausage McGriddles, Small McCafe.
– $3 Triple Cheeseburger, Classic Chicken Sandwich, Happy Meal, Sausage McMuffin with Egg.
As you can see, each of these price points represents a great value. Choose your price, choose your favorites, enjoy your meal! Stop in today and sample McDonald’s $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu!
Promotion valid for a limited time at participating locations. $2 Small McCafe excludes hot and iced coffee. Most McDonald’s restaurants will be open holiday hours on Memorial Day (Monday, May 28.)
It’s that time of year again! Time for McDonald’s to offer special pricing on the Filet-O-Fish sandwich. In the late winter and early spring, Micky D’s will discount their Filet-O-Fish by a significant amount. These promotions usually begin around Valentine’s Day, lasting until Good Friday or Easter Sunday. Lent Filet-O-Fish deals have been happening for at least 45 years. I’m 53, and can remember when they were just 49 cents! Over the years, the promo price has increased gradually: 59 cents, 79 cents, 99 cents, 2 for $2, 2 for $2.22, 2 for $3, 2 for $3.33, 2 for $4, and 2 for $4.44.
Last year, 2 for $5 was a common sale price. In many areas, the Filet-O-Fish was available as part of McDonald’s popular McPick 2 for $5 offering. However, this promotion has been replaced by the new $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu. We’re waiting to see if the spring Filet-O-Fish promotion is incorporated into the Dollar Menu or becomes available as a standalone deal. Be sure to install the McDonald’s mobile app on your phone since this is often a source of specials which aren’t available elsewhere.
UPDATED MARCH 26, 2018: If you want a Buy One Get One Free Filet-O-Fish deal in 2018, you need the McDonald’s mobile app. Once again this week, there is a BOGO eCoupon when you use Mobile Order and Pay. This special is valid through 4/1. In my area, regular price is $3.79, so the BOGO offer would get you 2 sandwiches for $1.90 each. Without Mobile Order and Pay, the best deal is Buy One Filet-O-Fish, Get One for 50% off. Again, these specials are exclusive to Micky D’s mobile app. If you don’t have it yet, you can download free on Google Play (Android) or from the Apple App Store (iPhone.)
I’m still waiting for Filet-O-Fish Friday, but haven’t seen it yet. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more cheap Filet-O-Fish sandwiches and let you know what we find. Be sure to check back often!
As expected, McDonald’s has brought back their ever-popular Shamrock Shake for St. Patrick’s Day 2018! As in previous years, it comes in 3 sizes: small, medium, and large. Back in the day, you could get one at any Micky D’s restaurant. This is no longer the case. Your local McDonald’s may or may not be offering this minty spring masterpiece. How do you know whether or not you can get one in your neighborhood? Simple! Just download the new Shamrock Shake Finder app. It’s free on Google Play (Android) or from the Apple App Store (iPhone.)
If you’re on a budget, you can get a Small Shamrock Shake for $2.00 in most markets. This is because it is technically a McCafe Shake. All small McCafe drinks carry a $2 price tag as part of McDonald’s new $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu. Medium and large pricing varies by market. Typically, a medium shake is around $2.50 while a large sells for about $3.00.
How long will McDonald’s Shamrock Shake be available? At least through St. Patrick’s Day and probably through the end of March. In past years, last call occurred around Easter Sunday. This is the same time the Filet-O-Fish Lent promotions end. If you really want to do it up right, get to McDonald’s for a Filet-O-Fish Good Friday, paired with a Shamrock Shake!
Do you have the McDonald’s app on your smartphone? If not, you’re missing out on a fantastic fast food deal!
Every week, there are several rotating specials exclusively for app users. You can receive discounts off specific menu items, FREE items, plus 2-for-1 offers. For the past few months, McDonald’s has been offering a free large sandwich when you buy one at the regular price. Big Mac, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, and Filet-O-Fish are all included in this promotion.
The great thing about the McDonald’s app deals is that you don’t have to clip coupons or remember to bring them to the restaurant. Just show the code on your phone and scan it at the cash register. This special is valid once per day per customer. Be sure to check and make sure the Buy One Get One Free deal is still valid before you head to Micky D’s. Also, be sure this deal is available in your area since McDonald’s app promotions and dates sometimes vary by market.
Current offers valid through Sunday, October 1, 2017 at participating McDonald’s restaurants. Not valid in conjunction with any other coupon or special promotional discount. Most McDonald’s locations will be open regular hours on Columbus Day (Monday, October 9.)
