There's only one thing that tastes better than McDonald's fries: free McDonald's fries. And on Tuesday, July 13, they're all yours. What's the occasion? McDonald's is rolling out a new loyalty program in the US and celebrating by rebranding National French Fry Day as World Famous Fan Day.
Like all marketing ploys, there's a catch – but it's minimally annoying. To cash in on the offer and claim your free fries, you have to download the McDonald's app and opt into the MyMcDonald's Rewards program. Painless, right? From there, you can toss an order of medium fries in your cart and let McDonald's pick up the bill.
If one order of gratis fries isn't enough, there are two more chances to win something sweet on Tuesday, July 13 – you just have to be willing to tweet about it. Sixty-six fans will score 1 million McDonald's rewards points, while one very lucky winner will take home free fries for life. To enter, you must take to Twitter on July 13 and share why you're 'the most loyal McDonald’s fan.' Don't forget to tag @McDonalds, include the hashtag #MyMcDonaldsFanContest and mention your home state.
And hey, even if you don't win the golden-ticket prize, at least you can drown your sorrows in a free carton of fries. Not a bad consolation prize if you ask us.
