What's your go-to McDonald's order? Let's face it, the menu is filled with absolute classics - in fact, many of us would be hard-pressed to choose just one favorite item. But aside from the burgers and nuggets and other stars of the show, there's one supporting act that is always there. Reliably delicious, always a great addition - the McDonald's fries are difficult to beat.
So wouldn't it be fantastic to know you really could always rely on fries? As in, never have to worry about paying for them again? Unlocking unlimited fries would truly make for a blessed life. And now, it's possible.
McDonald's has launched a brand new rewards program that has the internet feeling very excited. It's set to land on July 13th, and offers users some free food options just for signing up.
But to celebrate the launch, McDonald's has gone the extra mile, in the best way they know how. You guessed it - more free food. Rewards customers can become a part of the golden-arched chain's "Fry Day." This gives every single person the option of a free serving of fries, which is not an offer we would refuse. Simply download the McDonald's app, opt-in on the rewards, and add medium fries to your cart for free on July 13th.
But for the ultimate fry lover, there's an even more generous offer. To celebrate "Fry Day," McDonald's is launching a "World Famous Fan" competition. They're setting out to find the biggest fry fan out there to treat to the ultimate reward. 66 winners earn 1 million McDonald's reward points. The amazing prize has been valued at $19,685. But one lucky winner will get even more - a lifetime supply of free fries.
"We have the best fans in the world who deserve to unlock perks for their loyalty," said Alycia Mason, Vice President of Digital Customer Experience & Media, McDonald's USA in a press release. "That is why we are so excited to bring MyMcDonald's Rewards nationwide and celebrate with all of our guests on World Famous Fan Day. We're eager to repay years of fandom by giving them what they love most about McDonald's – our delicious food – for years to come."
So how do you win? Well, between July 13th and July 20th, tweet out your love for McDonald's either in words or with a picture or video. Make sure to tag @McDonalds and #MyMcDonaldsFanContest and your state's postal abbreviation, like #NY. McDonald's will choose one winner to receive 2 portions of medium fries for the next 50 years, plus 66 fry fans (one for every year of the restaurant's existence) to win the coveted prize of the million reward points.
