The Big Mac is fine, sure. It’s too bready, I’m not really into that sauce, and I’m not sure it’s actually that big, but don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t turn one down.
With that said, I am trying to limit myself to beef one or twice every two weeks – but that usually ends up being McDonald’s anyway – so if I’m going to have a burger it better be worth the hassle.
Well it looks like next week it will be worth it, as McDonald’s are handing out Big Macs for 99 English pence and you know what? I might allow myself to mosey on down to my closest Golden Arches.
There’s a few catches but in general, they’re worth the saving of £2.20. First you’ll have to download the free McDonald’s app onto your phone and sign up with the standard details you’re usually asked for – name and email, etc – and that’s almost it.
You pick your closest available store from a dropdown menu on the app and then go there to pick up your 99p burger.
The terms and conditions state that not ever chain in the country will be participating in the deal, but you’ll be able to check which ones aren’t in this here link.
The deal can only be used once per person between 0:01 and 23:59 on 5 November, although you still have to adhere to the post-breakfast menu laws.
The McDonald’s website explains:
“Offer comprises of one £0.99p Big Mac® per Eligible Customer only when ordered via the ‘Deals’ section of the My McDonald’s app by clicking on the button describing this offer in that section and by placing your order for the selected item at a participating McDonald’s Restaurant on 5th November 2019 inclusive, following which the order should be collected the same day at that participating restaurant.
“Served after 10.30am except in selected restaurants in South England which will serve this from 11am.
“This offer is one-time use per Eligible Customer only and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or promotion.
“This offer does not apply to any other McDonald’s items which may be ordered for which full payment will be required.“
