McDonald's 1.99 (Big Mac and Fries only)

90
Found 2nd Mar 2017
Not sure if anyone is aware of this but if you do the McD's survey online after purchasing anything you will be given a code to write down on the receipt

1) Buy anything from McDonald's

2) Waste 3 minutes of your life doing the survey

3) Write down the code at the end of the survey on your receipt

4) Hand your receipt at the till (doesn't work in the automated machines)

5) You will be given another receipt with the unique code to do another survey

6) Collect your burger and knock off chips

7) Repeat from step 2

Skip step 2,
they have no way of checking the code so just write down 5 random digits

Not true. I asked at the STD clinic I attended this morning and they didn't have any and have never stocked them according to the receptionist.

Cold fries, anaemic and half empty. If they got the fries right I would go more often.

​Not had fries like that, always get hot fries but like with anything each location/store is different.

Funny stuff X)
I have hundreds of these on the back of bus tickets. I use the machine and they never ask for the voucher at the till
I looked at the OP image and nearly fainted

Such tales of that many fries in a medium portion are unheard of the Midlands.

You know you're in the Midlands when you can see more background cardboard than you can fries!
I've done this a few times but I'm not sure if they could even tell if you don't do the survey and just write down five random numbers.
I want some burgers and fries, Don't you tell me no lies
usually on the back of arriva bus tickets too

The freebie Metro newspaper often has such £1.99 vouchers in. They have an expiry date but the bar code doesn't seem to change: I recently used at the machine a voucher, the expiry date of which was 30 Oct 2016. The Metro vouchers are for: Big Mac/McChicken, quarter pounder or fish-o-filet, each with medium fries, for £1.99.

I tried to be generous once offering many extra vouchers that I had accumulated to a huge queue at a local McDonalds. Everyone looked indifferently. I approached a group of school kids to give the vouchers to them but they all politely refused. At the end, I threw the vouchers away.

As people said earlier, those vouchers are often on the back of bus tickets. If you keep your eyes peeled, you may spot a clean one on the ground.

Nothing triggers me more than spending extra on large fries, to find out the fuc**** box is half full. I'm also never going to KFC again after buying a tower burger and the cheese was about 10% inside the bun with the rest hanging out. Yea you get minimum wage, but put some god damn effort into your job.
im surprised this has been voted so hot, the offer got trashed when i posted it last year hotukdeals.com/dea…600

btw there is no need to do the survey, they have no way of checking the numbers,
so just write 5 random digits on the receipt

Were you drinking whilst writing this?
I like Maccys generally but the problem is with the temperatures when you get your meal.
Cold/mildly warm chips, pot luck with the Big Mac, and crazy (too) hot coffee.

To add to the frustration they often dish your fries out first, leaving them to get colder on your order tray, and then add the coffee the last! ThE CoffeE is ToO hOt anD stAys HottER LoNGer AnD The FriKKing FrIes DOn'T!!!! ARRGHGHGHHHH! YoU **** H@#*!!!!

Take them back to the counter to exchange for fresh ones, they won't even bat an eyelid for a request like that - simples.

The burgers in that menu look like local pub cheapo burgers!
They don't check code. But staff are told the codes generated are 5 digits and if u add them all up and divide by 3 it needs to be s whole number no digit point

I don't believe a McDonald's worker is capable of doing this calculation with a row 20 deep at the till.

I can confirm this is true, I did the survey and currently have a 5 digit code written on my receipt awaiting redemption.
They add up to 27.
Bus tickets have this offer on all the time, Also the Metro news paper been having vouchers in daily lately.
