Food price inflation is everywhere! McDonald’s 2 for $5 is likely gone forever. It has been replaced by the 2 for $6 Mix & Match Deal. New for 2022, this promotion features 4 of Micky D’s most popular menu items:
– Big Mac
– Quarter Pounder with Cheese
– 10 Piece Chicken McNuggets
Choose any 2 and pay just $6.00. The 2 for $6 Mix & Match Deal is available for lunch or dinner, 7 days a week. No coupon required. Regular menu price for the Big Mac now exceeds $4.50 in most areas, so this represents a great value. Try the new 2 for $6 Mix & Match Deal today!
Offer valid for a limited time at participating locations. Not available in all areas. Most McDonald’s restaurants will be open regular hours on MLK Day (Monday, January 17.)
The following promotion was active in previous years but has NOT yet been verified for 2022. As soon as we receive further information, we will update this page. Be sure to check back often!
We are waiting anxiously to see if McDonald’s brings back their “Cold Days, Hot Deals” lunch and dinner promotion for 2022. As you may recall, this deal gave you a Quarter Pounder with Cheese for yesterday’s temperature at noon when you purchased one at the regular menu price. For instance, if it was 7 degrees at 12PM yesterday, you would buy one Quarter Pounder at regular price and receive the second for just 7 cents.
As you would expect, this offer was limited to select northern markets. A variation at some locations provided the same deal on an Egg McMuffin. If temperature at noon was 0 or below zero, your second QPC or Egg McMuffin was free. Needless to say, this is a great winter promotion. We’re hoping that Mickey D’s brings it back for 2022. If they do, you’ll hear about it first on this page. Stay tuned!
McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish deals have been happening for at least 50 years. I’m 57 and can remember when they were just 49 cents! Over the years, the promotional 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 2 for $5 Mix & Match Deal. Originally, the special pricing was only available during the weeks leading up to Good Friday and Easter. More recently, we’ve been seeing Filet-O-Fish specials year-round!
*UPDATE 1/6/2022* Here we go with a January BOGO! Check your phone for “Buy one Big Mac, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, 10pc Chicken McNuggets or Filet-O-Fish, get one FREE” deal! There is a limit of 1 offer per person per visit, valid once per day through January 30 in select markets. This offer is only valid when you order through the mobile app.
Bad news: McDonald’s 2 for $5 “Mix and Match” promotion has been retired due to soaring inflation. It has been rebranded as the 2 for $6 Mix and Match. As with the mobile app deal above, the Mix and Match special includes Filet-O-Fish. Be sure to ask before ordering since this offer is not available in all areas.
I’m still waiting for the return of 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 this page often. If YOU spot a deal at your local McDonald’s that’s better than 2 for $6, please let us know!

The elusive McRib sandwich has returned to McDonald’s menu! It pops up occasionally in certain parts of the country, usually during the winter months or around Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Years when diners are looking for an inexpensive warm meal. This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the McRib. It was first introduced at a Kansas City, Kansas Micky D’s back in November, 1981.
Walking by my local McDonald’s yesterday, I noticed the posters on the windows proclaiming this most blessed event! This pork patty sandwich with pickles and onions is actually very good and well worth the price which remains under $5 at most locations. In my town, a McRib sandwich only is priced at $4.39. The McRib Meal (sandwich, fries, and a drink) costs $7.49 with medium fries or $7.99 with large fries. Given today’s rapidly rising food prices, we rate this to be a good value.
If you want “something different” next time you’re at McDonald’s, get your hands on a McRib! This promotion is available for a limited time at participating restaurants. Prices may vary by location. Not available after midnight.
