Just put any five numbers in (Picture: TikTok/Adrianghervan)
The country went crazy for McDonald’s last year during Eat Out to Help Out, with the restaurant offering 50% off meals on certain days of the week.
Now, though, a tip has arrived to help us relive that heady joy once again, giving you a Big Mac and fries half off every single time.
Adrian Ghervan shared his hack on TikTok, where people are loving the sneaky tip.
Saying it ‘works every time’, Adrian showed a receipt for a previous meal he’d had at McDonald’s.
On the back of the receipt is an area where you can input a code. You’d normally get this code for doing a survey or completing some other form of market research for the fast food chain.
However, Adrian showed that you can simply write any five numbers on the lines below where it says ‘five digit offer code here:’ and hand this to the cashier. The price should automatically drop so your Big Mac and fries costs just £1.99.
Unfortunately for fans of nuggets or quarter pounders, the offer specifically applies to a Big Mac and fries, but the price is certainly right at over half off the original price.
Obviously the right thing to do is to just complete the survey. As Adrian’s TikTok showed, though, you could technically cut this corner if you felt like it.
Others who swear by the cheat agreed that it works every time under Adrian’s video.
‘You guys didn’t know??? I’ve been doing it for 4 years and saved tons,’ one wrote.
‘I work in McDonald’s and yes you can easily fool us with this… it works’, an employee also revealed, with another admitting ‘We never check the numbers don’t worry.’
If the worry over getting caught out would be too much for you, just take part in the survey. Then you can make your food savings without the added side of guilt.
Then you just need to be sure to keep your receipts.
