A McDonald’s customer went viral on TikTok after sharing a McDonald’s app hack for a free crispy chicken sandwich.
In the video, user @grayb3ttscartok shows his mobile order behind him on the screen. The order shows a Crispy Chicken Sandwich reduced from $5.69 to free. “For those who don’t know, you can get a free crispy chicken sandwich with a minimum order of $1 almost any day of the week,” he says. The TikToker usually buys chocolate milk to meet the $1 minimum, which can be seen in their order. The total for the two items is less than $2.

The video has been viewed over 23,000 times since its release on November 12. Many viewers in the comments pointed out that the hack might not work for everyone due to the different offers.
“By the way, every place is different, mate. I travel a lot and app offerings vary wildly, even within the same state,” commented one viewer.
“You realize everyone gets different offers based on what you order and how often you use certain offers, like they might end up limiting you,” wrote a second.
“This is only the first time you’ve ordered through the app, an offer like this is rare,” commented another.
@grayb3ttscartok replied in the comments, writing: “I’ve used this maybe 1000 times. I guess I’m lucky. I’ve had this almost every day for the last 4 years lol.”
Other commenters shared various offers they received from McDonald’s.
“Damn I’m jealous I only had the complimentary any size roast with a chicken sandwich,” one person shared.
“This is crazy lol you can get a big roast for a buck too,” commented a second.
“It’s always a Big Mac, not a crispy chicken,” wrote a third.
The McDonald’s website offers this explanation for why some offers are disappearing: “New offers are regularly added to the McDonald’s app to give you a variety of choices and discounts! Deals are removed from the deal screen once they expire or have been used.” The only deals that are relatively consistent are the $1 big roast, 99-cent coffee of any size, and Free Fry Friday.
@grayb3ttscartok isn’t the only person going viral for sharing McDonald’s deals. Another TikToker shared a hack on how to get a full breakfast, including a McCafé drink, for $2. Another TikToker revealed how to get a 29 cent double cheeseburger.
