McDonald's Discounts, Deals and Coupon Codes

You Can Get a Premium Burger or Chicken Sandwich at McDonald's For Just $1

Grab a $1 premium burger or chicken sandwich at McDonald's today!

Now until September 30th, you can buy any premium burger or chicken sandwich at McDonald's for just $1. Depending on your location, some of these items (like the Artisan Grilled Chicken sandwich) can cost upwards of $5. The only options not available through the coupon are Signature Crafted Sandwiches and the Double Quarter Pounder Cheeseburger.

This is by far the best deal we've seen in a long time from McDonald's. You should definitely keep this offer in mind if you're planning on traveling in the next few months, as airports and train stations often have higher prices and don't typically offer the $1 fixed price menu. Slickdeals user jomeyq pointed out that, "Most of those locations think they don't take coupons, and won't scan your phone, but you can place a mobile order and pick it up."

To get your coupon, all you have to do is download the McDonald's app, go to the deals section and select "$1 Sandwich." This will give you a QR code that you can scan at the restaurant to redeem your offer.

The coupons you get through the McDonald's app are only good once per day until 9/30. Now, while we haven't tried it ourselves, according to Slickdealer CollegeRamenEat, you can, "place a mobile order with deal of your choice, using the app. Once you arrive at McDonald's, check in and choose 'pick up inside.' This charges your method of payment and clears your order out of the mobile app. Then, proceed to counter and make an additional order with a different coupon. It makes it a bit less awkward than making multiple separate orders at the counter." If you plan on eating at McDonald's at all before the end of September, you should definitely take advantage of this slick deal!

You can save a lot of time using the McDonald's app. Once you're registered, you can use the app to order meals (or select individual items), pay with your credit card, and then get curbside pick-up at the closest McDonald's. Basically, you park your car in a designated waiting area and an employee comes out and delivers your food. This allows you to skip the lines inside and at the drive thru and get right to that fast food goodness.

The McDonald's app also offers a TON of other great deals available regularly, and the best ones are usually related to regional sports franchises. Slickdealer jomeyq points out that, "many locations offer really good deals on 10 piece nuggets or big macs (between free and $2) when local sports teams do something like get a sack, or 5 runs etc. The deal automatically appears the next day. I always check for these if I'm in need of a quick meal." Other offers we've seen recently have included free hash browns with the purchase of any breakfast sandwich, $3 off any order of $10 or more, and free medium fries with the purchase of any burger or sandwich. If you eat at McDonald's with any kind of frequency, downloading this app is a no-brainer.

Since this doesnt include their signature crafted recipes which is the sandwich on the right, dont expect to be able to get that one.

I'm so confused what McDonald's end game is with this? They have to be losing a ton of money doing this and on top of that it must be killing the franchisees with all the added traffic. Unless they are just trying to put everyone else out of business I don't see pluses for doing this?
Why do you think they will lose money? Do you know what it costs them per sandwich? Are you considering the average spend will be 3-4 dollars, because most will add items? So if it costs them 85 cents for the sandwich and 50 for the fries and drink how are they losing money if they collect three dollars? They have operations people that run these numbers down to a fraction of a cent. They will be OK.

After changing their promos on what seemed a weekly basis and the app often telling me that the big mac I ordered "isn't available now from the restaurant you selected", I decided to just make a burger at home for $2 and it takes just a few minutes.

Yeah if restaurants complain margins are thin when the sandwiches are full price then I'm sure they are just peachy when you are selling the product for 25% of the cost. FYI food cost generally tends to be ding ding ding about 25% to 30% of the final price of the product. I can go in there and do go in there and get a $5 sandwich for $1 and then get a $2 coffee for $1 also, so that's $7 of stuff for $2, they're making great money with that I tell you. They are also selling any size drink for $1, so a large drink for $1 is making them great money I tell you. I guess labor, utilities, real estate costs etc etc just don't exist in your world do they?

They want you to install the app so they can give you notification ads every day. They also want people who haven't been there in a while to try them again. Short period of loss leader to hopefully hook a lot of non-slickdeals normal people who always buy high margin fries and drink and will continue eating there once deal ends.
