Customer shares how to get free food with the McDonald’s app

These days it’s convenient to order food through a fast food restaurant’s app. At the push of a button, you can order whatever you want without leaving your home or socializing. In addition, some apps offer great deals and opportunities to get free food. In a viral TikTok video, a man shares how he can get free food by knowing how to navigate the McDonald’s app.

TikTok user Ben (@theretrobid_ben) uploaded a video about McDonald’s app hacks. The clip only shows Ben sitting in his car at the McDonald’s drive-thru. A smile crosses his face, the text overlay reads, “You’ll never go hungry if you know how to use the McDonald’s app.” Ben reiterates this in the caption, writing, “@mcdonalds the app lights up and gives you free Meal.”

The video was viewed over 503,000 times as of Monday, with many viewers sharing their experiences of great deals on the app.

“Yes, lots of free stuff. When a basketball team wins, they give out free nuggets. French fries $1. Big Macs are always a buy, you can get one for a dime,” shared one viewer.

“I just got a double cheeseburger for 29 cents,” wrote a second user.

“Chicken Nuggets 1.00 I tell my kids take my phone when you go to McDs I need those dots,” said another.

“I just got a premium chicken sandwich, a Big Mac, fries and a drink for $3,” agreed one user.

On the other hand, as with any app, there are inconsistencies and people have mentioned them in the comments.

“I was literally just saying I have all these points and I don’t know how to apply them and this is popping up,” one person commented.

“You have to wait 15 minutes to order more than one item but I’ll wait if it’s free,” wrote another.

“My app doesn’t give me points. I’ve been stuck at 900 points for 3 weeks and have ordered McDonalds about 4 times in that time,” claimed a third party.

“There is no option for free stuff, one of you all show me how to get it for free,” said another.

McDonald’s launched its mobile app in 2015. The app allows you to collect rewards points called “MyMcDonald’s Rewards” which can be used to get discounts on groceries. In addition to MyMcDonald’s Rewards points, you can earn points through McDelivery where you can have food delivered. These deals include $1 Large Fry, 99-cent Any Size Coffee, Free Friday Fries, and more.

The Daily Dot has contacted Ben via email and TikTok comment and McDonald’s via email.
