    Never works when I’m there

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Darn! Hoping it works for you soon if you decide to try again!

    • Andrea

      Try taking a screen shot of the coupon at home so it will be in your pictures. This happened to me a couple of times too.

    • IssysMom

      Mine also recently stopped working.

    • Melissa

      I find if it’s not working it’s because I haven’t signed into the wifi, but my phone thinks it’s connected. So turn off WiFi or connect to the McDonald’s wifi.

  2. Raquel

    Yes, free fries on Friday! Great app!

    • DNM

      …with a purchase though!

      • Mickey

        Note. Apple slices are$.50

  3. Christina

    It displays a code they can manually enter if it won’t scan

  4. Belle

    Love the app!

  5. Denise Tyson

    OMG…we have saved so much with this app. (Yes..LOL…We go through often) For close to a month we used a free drink with purchase a couple of times a day! I would run get a $1 Cheeseburger and an ice tea daily and dear husband would get his breakfast sandwich and free tea in the mornings.

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s great to hear how well it works for you! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Nikki

    Used to get great offers every week. Then I stopped getting any offers at all. Wouldn’t work half the time and the employees would never know what to do if it wouldn’t scan properly. Deleted it…BUT this is good news for my diet!

  7. Jimk

    I stopped going to McDonalds completely due to the app being a non working waste of time and the nasty attitude from employees when I wanted to use it. Not down talking the posting….give it a try but don’t think its you when things work as hit or miss at best. Also read the app reviews.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Very sorry to hear the app has not worked for you 🙁 Thanks so much for sharing your experience! Hoping it works for you if you decide to try again!

  8. M

    Mine works all the time and when it does not scan, the cashier is able to manually enter the code with no problem. They have gotten annoyed when I do separate transactions to use more than one coupon though. 😐

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for taking a moment to comment how it has worked for you! Glad you store has been able to manually enter the offers that do not scan!

  9. Leavesbegintofall

    I’ve used it several times to get a free happy meal with value meal purchase. I’ve never had an issues at all with either the app or the employees being upset. Super easy to pull up while I’m in the drive thru lane!! Def a money saver!

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      That’s awesome! So glad to hear you’re enjoying it!

  10. Kay

    Use it a lot and love it! The Burger King app is great also!

    • Nicole

      Are there any other restaurant apps worth having?

      • Robyn

        I like the Chick-fil-a app. Every time you make a purchase, scan your phone and after a set amount of purchases you get a free item. No deals but I still enjoy a splurge every once in a while, especially when you get rewarded.

        • JULIE

          I love the Chick-fil-A app to! This past holiday week at Christmas time there was an offer loaded to my card every single day for something free! Everything from free drinks, shakes, or full-size sandwiches. They are very generous.

          • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

            Thanks for the tip! Chick-Fil-A is awesome!!

  11. susan

    If the app is not working just tell the workers what your offer was. They will help you and give you the offer. They have done this for me.

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      Great tip, Susan! Thanks for passing this along!

  12. AP

    Hmm, we eat there more than I will ever admit, and use it every time we go. I’ve literally never had an issue and have used it in multiple locations (even in multiple states) without a problem. I’ve had it many many months now.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Woohoo! Awesome it has worked so well for you!!! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Mrs. K

    i thought they got rid of the free fries friday- is that coming back?

  14. AJ

    I find the app works when I turn the wireless off on my phone and use data instead.

    • Debode11

      AJ, I have also found that shutting wifi off will make the app work.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for the helpful feedback! Great tip!

  15. Karen

    I had the app but deleted it after a few months. I tried it at several locations and most of the employees seemed bothered that I used it. Some locations turned me away because they don’t accept coupons from the app and more frequently, the barcode wouldn’t scan. I just stick to the survey/code for the free burger on the back of the receipt when I go to McDonald’s now.

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      Oh darn! Sorry to hear that, Karen! Thanks for sharing your honest feedback!

  16. Sue P

    Same here regarding problems with the app. Never really works, but it’s nice on those rare occasions when it does.

  17. BCQuatt

    I have tried to use this on several occasions and it never works!!! I had my app loading from my work to the McDonalds by my house (30 min) and it still didn’t work when I got there 🙁

  18. DJ

    I have been using the app for about a year now. The offers were way better in Colorado than my current location. The most frequent offer is buy a breakfast sandwich get a specialty coffee drink for free. I don’t eat McDonald’s as much, so I am not mad.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for taking a moment to leave a review on the app DJ!

  19. Judy Trac

    Free stuff for meeeeeeeee

  20. Sandy

    I’m in love with this app!

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      So glad to hear you’re enjoying the app, Sandy!

  21. Anna

    The app only works if I turn on my location. The deals were great at the beginning. Now I just get their Dollar Menu.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing Anna! Hopefully that tip will help others as well!

  22. Ashley

    When I initially got the app I don’t think it was very active in my area. I tried it again once it was more advertised and haven’t had any problems! Unfortunately, between work and sports we go there way too often but it’s nice to be able to save a few dollars. I did have a BOGO happy meal offer for weeks and my youngest 2 loved it!

  23. JA

    My app works great! Never had a problem. I’m Pittsburgh area so we get free offers when local sports teams win. I have done multiple orders, three people/three phones and also used in the drive thru.

  24. Amy

    App rarely ever works. Its so frustrating that i quit using it and go to Wendys instead, lol.

  25. Sue

    This app used to work for me, but now it never does. & it seems when it does, the only offers I get are ones that I have to use the mobile pay option on.

  26. rox

    I was using this all the time but then ut stopped working. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but same thing 🙁

  27. shirley

    No, I have not downloaded the app. Their food is disgusting.

  28. mdk6767

    The McDonald’s receipts in my area offer a free quarter pounder or egg mcmuffin at your next visit when you do the online survey. Worth it!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      YUM! Thanks for sharing! Great offer!

  29. Cindy

    I use it all the time, but large coffee before work for $1 after I buy 5 I get to treat my kids to either a large frappe or pineapple mango smoothly free.

  30. Julie

    Looooove this app. My kids love McDonalds smoothies and I almost always have a BOGO on any McCafe item, which includes smoothies & shakes in addition to coffee drinks!

  31. A

    If your cashier is having trouble scanning the code, try turning your brightness all the way up. It helps the scanner recognize the code. Also works with other apps or mobile coupons that have barcodes to scan (cartwheel, B&BW)

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Such a great tip!! Thanks for the heads up on turning the brightness up on your phone!

  32. charlyt37

    Love this app! I got a free big mac meal just for downloading the app i have two toddlers “that age”. So I enjoy the BOGO happy meals( buy one get one free).

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yes! Great offer for the kids for sure! Glad you have been able to grab the savings!

  33. *Angela-Miles*

    Love McDonald’s!!! And I use to love the app,!! Used it for a year without any problems and got so much free. But since about last summer the app has had soo many issues and wouldn’t work half the time. So I uninstalled it in October, hoping to try it again soon and see if it will work again. I’ve been having McDonald’s withdraws the past two months Lol, stopped going their when I deleted the app. Drooling over their fries now 😉

  34. Jon

    Anybody else getting the never ending bouncing fries? Or a 1037 error?
