In a move that has fast-food enthusiasts celebrating, McDonald‘s has made Fridays extra special by offering free medium-sized fries to its rewards program members for the remainder of 2023. This exciting promotion was officially announced last week, and it’s already creating a buzz among McDonald’s loyal customers.
To enjoy this delectable deal, all you need to do is be a part of McDonald’s rewards program and make a minimum purchase of just $1 via the McDonald’s app. Once you meet this requirement, you can savor the taste of free fries every Friday from now until December 31, 2023. As the app cheekily suggests, it’s time to “Make it fry day with a friend.”
McDonald’s has made it incredibly easy for customers to take advantage of this promotion. The offer is valid through the mobile app, so you can conveniently access your free fries with just a few taps on your smartphone.
What’s particularly interesting is that McDonald’s isn’t the only fast-food giant tempting customers with free fries through their loyalty programs. Burger King, another major player in the fast-food industry, began a similar initiative in April 2022. Members of their Royal Perks program were entitled to free fries with any meal once a week. This enticing offer was later extended in January 2023 and, once again, it has been pushed through to the end of the year.
Tom Curtis, the President of Burger King North America, highlighted the success of the Royal Perks program, saying, “Since announcing the rollout of our loyalty program last September, Royal Perks is now available in nearly every Burger King restaurant nationwide. Enhancing the digital guest experience continues to be a major focus for our brand, and we’re confident this latest offer will attract even more loyal fans while rewarding our existing members.”
The freebie fever doesn’t stop with fries; other fast-food giants are joining the race to reward their loyal customers. Chipotle has brought back its popular “Boorito” Halloween deal, which allows all Chipotle Rewards members to enjoy any entree for just $6 when they use the promo code BOORITO for digital orders placed between 3 p.m. and closing time on Halloween. Taco Bell is also stepping up its game by offering free breakfast tacos to its rewards members every Tuesday for the rest of this month.
While these promotions are certainly tantalizing, customers are already wondering if these fast-food chains will extend their freebies and deals into 2024. For now, though, it’s a feast for fast-food lovers every Friday, thanks to McDonald’s, and the other chains are doing their best to keep their loyal patrons coming back for more tasty treats.
