As of Friday, March 27, McDonald’s remains OPEN for drive-thru and takeout orders in most areas.
It’s that time of year again! Time for McDonald’s to offer special pricing on the Filet-O-Fish sandwich. When February rolls around, Micky D’s discounts their Filet-O-Fish by a significant amount. These promotions usually begin around Valentine’s Day, lasting until Good Friday or Easter Sunday.
Filet-O-Fish deals have been happening for at least 50 years. I’m 55 and can remember when they were just 49 cents! Over the years, the promotional lent 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. This offer has returned for 2020, enabling you to enjoy fish sandwiches for just $2.50 each.
*UPDATE 3/18/2020* Check your McDonald’s mobile app for “Buy a Filet-O-Fish, get any size Fries and an Apple Pie FREE!” This one just popped up on my phone this morning. Because app deals vary by region, it may or may not be available in your area. This offer is valid once per day through April 5.
As expected, the Buy One Get One for 25 Cents McDonald’s mobile app deal has ended. At least for now. We’ll be watching to see if they bring it back or replace it with a similar offer. (Buy One Get One FREE would be great!) In the meantime, it looks like the best national Filet-O-Fish deal is the 2 for $5 Mix & Match, where available.
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. If YOU spot a deal at your local McDonald’s that’s better than 2 for $5, please let us know!
