DIY ‘Big Mac’ for only £1.59 @ McDonalds

A Big Mac by itself is £3.19, but you can save £1.60 by creating one yourself.

How?

First, order a £1.49 Double Cheeseburger on the new in store screens and then perform the following free customisations on screen...

Add shredded lettuce
Add onions
Add pickles
Add mustard
Add mayonnaise

The add-ons are free and while it wont taste or look exactly like the iconic Big Mac, its a pretty neat trick for 149 pennies. Less than a limp supermarket sarnie.

This should also serve as a reminder that, with the new screens, you can easily customise any order with certain items, allowing you to add or remove pickles, for example. This also ensures that your order is cooked fresh!

You can then use the receipt to get yourself a real big mac and fries for only £1.99 by completing the "mcfoodforthough" survey

I don’t like mc d’s but I love the hack and the voucher heat
heat for the lol factor
I think i'll go and try this.
Anecdotally I hear that you can ask them to put Big Mac sauce on a cheeseburger. I've never been brave enough to ask though.
Add the bacon and I'm in

thanks!

yes, i only thought I would share it on here for others. I gather a lot of copying goes the other way from HDUK to MSE so only right it is reciprocated!
What makes the Big Mac great is Ronald McDonald's secret sauce. So this is definitely a bit of a stretch claiming it to be a DIY Big Mac.

You can get a real Big Mac and Medium Fries for £1.99 so I think stick to that of you want the real deal.

This might be nice though.
Receipts are so easy to come by that it annoys me when people are paying full price for them.

if you order at the till you can just ask to put the big mac sauce on whatever you order. before some one asks yes probably even a McFlurry, but i would advise against it

I used to order the Big Tasty and ask for it without Big tasty sauce and with Big Mac sauce instead. Always worked. But i don't think you can do it through the screens. Just ask - the worse they can say is 'No'.
heat just for the cheap skate lengths gone to in order to bag a bargain... are you a student by any chance?

Why do people spout this nonsense. Plenty of nutrition in a burger …Why do people spout this nonsense. Plenty of nutrition in a burger https://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/10210327/McDouble-is-cheapest-and-most-nutritious-food-in-human-history.html


The article, quoting a podcaster and talking about calories per dollar, not the nutritional macro and micro nutrients of the burger.

It is you who is spouting nonsense
Don't like Big Mac's, don't know I'm here.
on a side note, when you get the receipt and fill out the survey for a £1.99 big mac and fries, make sure you buy a vanilla milkshake with it.

The taste of the chips, when eaten between slurps of the milkshake, is one of lifes great joys. Try it, you wont be disappointed

Love it
But the double cheeseburder already has pickles, onions and mustard?
You sir are my hero thank you.

Not sure...this is how it goes in my head...

Me: Can I have Big Mac sauce on my cheeseburger, please.

McEmployee: Sure, that's no problem.

McEmployee to McEmployee 2: This goon wants Big Mac sauce on his cheeseburger.

McEmployee 2: Oh I'll give him some Big Mac sauce all right...

*spits on burger, farts on burger, puts burgers between butt cheeks*

McEmployee: Here you are, your special order.

*grins wildly*

Me: Thank you.

*thinks burger is delicious*

Just ask for a cheese burger dressed as a big Mac please

I mean there's not much defense, the only thing you've said is that a burger is more nutritional than a receipt. Which while a joke, "more nutriotional" dosen't even make sense gramatically. So it's gonna confuse some lol.

I said "nutritional value".
It makes perfect sense. Eg "Eating mrsuperjolly provides more nutritional value than eating a reciept"

Some people overanalyse a joke far too much...
I love this OP!!!
If there is a savers fish deal then you might be able to customise it and add in loads of free bits?
Thank you I love a big Mac will defo try
"Add pickles"

But why?

I mean sounds less like a joke and more like an age old whinge about MacDonald's. I think people upvote you because they like their weird biases to be validated too.
Isn't the burgers wider on a big Mac?
DIY big mac;

Get one bun
Cut it in half, or preferably get pre-cut buns for authenticity
Put some %!£* in it
Serve and enjoy

There is nothing original on the Martin Lewis website.
This deal should simply be called "At McDonalds you can add free options onto your poverty burger".
