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

Found on the money saving website and thought I would share on here

I feel like going to McDonald’s just to fool around customising a burger to be honest. I’ll take two of what I concoct

I'm sorry to hear that. Personally, I've never been asked for my voucher, I've collected my order and walked away.

Next time write 5 random numbers on the top of the receipt (or actually do the survey while you wait) that is printed out, if asked for your voucher hand them the receipt. There are crayons in most branches you can use if you don't have a pen with you.

Absolutely scary how low cost fast food is now. Not in a good way. Sorry to be a party pooper! Couldn't pay me to eat this garbage.
I wouldn't go anywhere near those screens to touch them. Full of germs from grotty kids finger prints.

Just like with any other burger even if you get it at a restaurant. It certainly is junk food, almost all burgers are no matter where they’re frombut still has nutrional value!

You're right, an internet commentator on HUKD who is scared of being questioned is a much more reliable source.
The fish fillet and fries is available on the £1.99 voucher by filling in the food survey !

I always ask for extra mustard on my quarter pounders just so it's made fresh after 10 mins on the warming tray they just are not the same
Neostar21st Feb

Is there any options for fish fillet or veggie burgers?


A fish mac you mean or veggie mac now that just sounds so wrong

It's not really a problem and shouldn't come as a surprise. Almost every surface that comes into contact with someone's hand will have traces of coliforms or faecal flora. Handrails, doors, communal kettles, water machines etc are all very likely to have traces of coliforms. If you've ever shaken hands with anyone it's almost certain that traces of their faecal flora will be transferred to your hand. In reality this is a complete non issue and is very unlikely to have any detrimental effect on anyone's health. The study was reported in the media as if there was visible poo on the screens but you could swab pretty much any commonly touched surface in any workplace and the results would be the same.

any way of getting a fish burger on the cheap?


Complete the survey on receipt and next time go back ask for it on the £1.99 offer
“This also ensures your order is cooked fresh”

Nonsense .... every single item/ order is made when ordered .... under the new restaurant system. MFY - Made For You. Doesn’t start to be made until your money goes into the till.

Shakes head in despair 😩
I prefer a Big Mac or McChicken sandwich and medium coke for £1.99, hey they don’t even charge you the sugar tax. Justvpinch the code into the machine and it’s all yours. I’ve not paid full price McDonalds for years.
Thanks for sharing. This site is becoming a joke. It's becoming more of a chat forum than a deal site. Why are people posting nonsense on here.
This is the saddest thing I have seen in the internet for a long time. :o(

Totally different to a Big Mac - wrong bun, wrong sauce.

Over 300 likes pal, can't be that bad. Also, why are you replying to a comment i made over 3 months ago?
"while it wont taste or look exactly like the iconic Big Mac..."
been doing this a while now with a modified double cheeseburger with bacon less stodge from the extra bread and the structure isn't really compromised..
I’ve been doing this since they introduced the touch screen menus. You get more for your money and you know they got to make you a nice hot fresh burger than some skanky cold burger that’s been sat there for ages
