    The McDonald’s app is the best! They always have lots of coupons to choose from with plenty of free food. My favorites are a free med McCafe (I always get a Frappe) with any purchase and also free Happy Meal with combo purchase. Both of these are available on the app right now.

      YUM! Thanks for sharing Allyson!

      My MLB (pro baseball) team in conjunction w/McD’s gives free 6pc McNuggets (w/any purchase) when team doesn’t allow any runs in the 6th inning of any game during the regular season. You might wanna check out if this is a countrywide deal.

        We get a free six piece McNuggets whenever the Detroit Tigers score 6 runs in a game, win or lose. It’s happened about 15-20 times this season already.

        • Kelly

          We get a free 6 piece every time a Cleveland Indians player steals a base. I think we have got 7 free 6 pieces.

          Here in the Denver area, it’s a free McDouble the day after any game the Rockies hit a double — almost every game!

        • Laura

          I don’t even care if they win – just score 6!! LOL –

    I have been loving the McDonalds app in general, not a big McD fan, but love their ice cream and smoothies, and I get Buy anything get free medium McCafe beverage every week, sometimes twice ever since I installed it, so, we have been going to McDs every couple of days all summer, paying for a cone and getting a smoothie free every time. Plus Free Fries Fridays with buy anything get free fries. Highly recommend.

    • Brandy

      What she said! Like all of it! A cone in AZ is $.59, so I get a medium smoothie AND cone for $.59!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      How cool! Happy you have scored some sweet offers!

  3. Candace

    Agreed. Try not to do McDonalds much but when we do its great to have a coupon and they can just scan it at the window. Either do BOGO sandwich coupon or the $2/10 usually.

  4. Shari

    Here in L.A. area they have had fantastic giveaways.. free signature sandwich with ANY purchase when the Angels baseball team got a home run. They changed it up to free with a fry purchase which is still a bargain. The sandwiches sell for 4.95.
    When Dodgers do something they were giving 6 pc McNuggets with any purchase. One of the BEST apps!!

    • spongemonkey

      lol Shari. Shoulda read all comments 1st before commenting but I posted specifics of the McNugget deal for the Dodgers above. I believe LAD also have 40-50% off certain Papa Johns Pizza orders when the team does something specific.

    Can I get 2 ice creams for me and my daughter, when she go with me. Or it’s limit 1 on my app

  7. Myrah

    My McDonalds (long island, NY) always has FREE ice cream for kids… Everyday, all day. It is half the size of a sundae container, no cone though. I don’t even have to purchase anything.

    • Me

      Thats exactly what my motherinlaw told us When she came to visit us.. she is from long Island too and she can not believe why McDonald doesnt do it here in sc . So is true then wow…

  8. Mamarenie

    My app never works 🙄

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Bummer! Maybe delete and reinstall. Hope this helps!

  9. Lel

    I have issues with my app working too. As soon as I pull up to the window, I lose connection. Also, one of the Burger King by me has .50 soft serve cone. YMMV.

    • Laura

      make sure your app is updated. If you can pull up your coupon before the window- take a screen shot of it so you’re good to go once at the window.

    • Lee

      My app worked after midnight and had the free ice cream cone offer on it. Now that I’m ready to head out, the app isn’t working anymore. I even uninstalled it and reinstalled it. This app is so full of bugs…especially on a promo day. I guess there’s no free ice cream for me today…

  10. Holly

    We like the free fries Friday coupon for free medium fry with any purchase 😋

  11. Ms Bailey

    For the past two weeks, McDs has been giving away free ice cream, sundaes, & smoothies! Plus there’s a lot of BOGO or $ coupons available! Some items are completely free or require any purchase to get treats.

  12. Judy Trac

    gonna get my free cone

  13. Pat

    anyone having trouble logging into the McDonalds app today? Guessing the site is getting hammered.

    • Laura

      Yup! I was lucky enough to get in earlier snagged a few coupons – but now it’s crashing

  14. AnnieL.

    The apps not working for me today either 🙁 . sucks , was really looking forward to the cone. I use my McDonald’s app religiously, at least once a week. I loveeee their fries and plain hamburger, also the nuggets lol. Oh and their coke…okay I’m done haha. Guess I won’t be getting icecream today unless it magically starts working again :-/
