As expected, McDonald’s has brought back their ever-popular Shamrock Shake for St. Patrick’s Day! 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 exclusive 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 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. This month’s best offer is a large or regular sandwich for just 25 CENTS when you purchase one at the regular menu price! This includes Big Mac, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, and Filet-O-Fish. Egg and Sausage McMuffins are included. Chicken sandwiches are included. Needless to say, this is an amazing deal!
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 week per customer. Be sure to check and make sure the offer 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.
Offer valid once per day through Sunday, March 31, 2019 at participating McDonald’s restaurants. Not valid in conjunction with any other coupon or special promotional discount. Excludes Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Signature Crafted menu items, Triple Breakfast Stack, Bacon Big Mac, Bacon Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Quarter Pounder Deluxe, Double Filet-O-Fish, Double Homestyle Burger, $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu items, and Everyday Value Menus. Most McDonald’s locations will be open regular hours on St. Patrick’s Day (Sunday, March 17.)
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.
Filet-O-Fish deals have been happening for at least 50 years. I’m 54 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 is still valid, enabling you to enjoy fish sandwiches for just $2.50 each.
Be sure to install the McDonald’s mobile app on your phone since this is a great source of specials which aren’t available elsewhere. Currently, there is a “Buy One Sandwich, Get One for 25 Cents” offer. In my area, regular price of a Filet-O-Fish is $3.79, giving you two for $2.02 each! This special is exclusive to Micky D’s mobile app and can be used once per week until March 31st. If you don’t have it yet, you can download free on Google Play (Android) or from the Apple App Store (iPhone.) App promotions vary by region.
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!

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. Menu items may vary by location. $2 Small McCafe excludes hot and iced coffee. Most McDonald’s restaurants will be open regular hours on MLK Day (Monday, January 21.)
We are waiting anxiously to see if McDonald’s brings back their “Cold Days, Hot Deals” lunch and dinner promotion for 2019. 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 2019. If they do, you’ll hear about it first on this page. Stay tuned!
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.

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?”
