    Problem is the app never works for me. Iv never been able to load it and pull up coupons…🤷🏼‍♂️

    • Lana

      It helps to turn off the wi-fi on our phones before we get to the restaurant because it keep trying to hit their wi-fi and will not load.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! I had troubles with if for a while too. I find it to work better for me now that I have deleted and reinstalled it. Hoping that helps!

    • Tracy

      I could never load the coupons unless i was at the mcdonalds. I couldnt click on it when at home

    • Hazzle

      Close the app (swipe up for Apple) then re-open. Works every time

    • cynthia stein

      I had problems with the app then realized I had to go into my iPhone settings and data and move the dot over to allow data for the McDonalds app and suddenly everything worked. Ended up doing it for Subway, etc. Hope this helps.

  2. Shelley P

    Nice! I like that you don’t have to use mobile pay either 🙂 Thank you for the heads up! <3

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You’re welcome!

  3. Melinda

    My app works amazing at home but not so much when I get there. I’ve started taking a screen shot of the coupon code before I go! Win! Also, I’ve got my husband using the app too! Another win!!

    Just got a QPer with cheese for $1.06 .. feels like I robbed them lol

    • Paul

      That’s what I’m eating, right now. I was a little iffy, about going, even for $1, because they seemed to be using those regular hamburger patties, on the Quarter Pounders. At least, that’s how they seemed, as thin as they were. I hadn’t ordered one, since before they started with the fresh beef patties. The one today, was thick and beefy. This one, unlike the previous version, is worth more than $1.

      • Mary

        What you do is call and complain letting them know – if it DID happen and you received a smaller patty – the emoyee could’ve not cared, been lazy and not gotten more stock out, none available – then should’ve stated we’re out and substituting, etc. I’m not saying this about you-unless you’re guilty too – but, I’ve seen so many people “air” their complaints online, rather freely AND at times in a mean and nasty way – yet NEVER mention having made contact with management and/or owners to rectify the situation. There are employees who really need to know how important it is to do their job INTENTIONALLY consistently well – if they do NOT want to maintain GOOD quality, then they should be removed. Funny how they’re the ones who seemingly always obtain employment over others. Lower pay rates? Don’t know. Anyway, I ALWAYS speak up – unless there is an extenuating circumstance OR, they’ve been given too many by me. Something else to consider – when you experience good service OR a good product – let them know – especially when regarding a product you’ve purchased. There are times when manufacturers will give you a comp for being loyal.

          Are you by any chance on Cruise Critic? There is a recent tip related thread on the Carnival board, and you sound alot like a few of the people posting on that thread.

      • john

        yes i thought at first there was a glitch in the software. It seemed to good to be true even for Mcadees.

  5. Jen

    The only thing I get at McD is their breakfast sandwich…bummer!

    • Natalie

      Hi! Looks like some breakfast sandwiches are included. You might want to check it out!!

    • JP

      Yes, I used it on a bagel breakfast sandwich!

  6. J

    Now THAT’s A good deal! Take a screenshot of the QR code to use in store and save on your phone just in case it goes away at certain locations. That is what I do and it always works.

    • Jennifer Moore

      I do the same!

  7. SM

    I agree with everyone when I get to McDonald’s the app does not work. So I screen shot the coupon and use that.

  8. LChapman

    Confession: I love those burgers! However, by September I will be a size bigger!! 🤫🤔🙅🏻‍♀️

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      LOL! They sure are yummy! 😉

  9. Shanna

    Earlier the coupon said until September. Now in my app it just says expires today. I wonder if it’s still until Sept..

    • Cw

      Mine does too but I think it reloads daily. They did this last summer and it was supposed to last several weeks but they ended the promo quite early!

    • Morna

      Because you can only use it once a day.

  10. JANELL

    Just had a fish sandwich for $1 for lunch:)

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great deal!

  11. Mike Barth

    Does anyone know if this deal will work in European McDonald’s? We are traveling for the next 16 days in Germany mostly and each of us have iPhones so all 5 of us could eat for $5???!!!!

    • Katie

      Lol no. US only. Enjoy some authentic German food instead! McDonald’s will be here waiting for you when you get back.

      • Jean

        I agree with Katie…eat authentic (even if it’s going to a european grocery store and getting simple pic nic food)! We actually instituted a rule in our family that when we are traveling (even in the states) we MUST eat somewhere that we can’t get at home (the only time we break the rule is if we are too hangry to find something, but since we created the rule that has only happened once!!)

  12. misti

    I have to pull up the coupons while at home they never work when I am close to MCD’s but also if you guys have the survey on your receipts they will take both deals. Its a bogo survey takes maybe a min to fill out. I always use my phone and receipt to get super cheap lunch. 🙂 The receipt will bogo two different items can’t stack with the app deal. Hope that makes sense.

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh neat! Thanks for the helpful tip!

    • Rhonda

      I have tried using both a receipt coupon and an app offer and was told you can only use one per order. I wouldn’t count on it working with both. But I have to say I have had many many free teas in the last several months. I especially like when they hand me the receipt after I only ordered a free tea. They’re not supposed to but often they do. So I get a free tea from a free tea. Win win!!!

  13. Sara

    Do you have to turn on location services to check in?

    I keep location services turned off because I find it to be an invasion of privacy and just creepy to leave it on. Most apps don’t actually need it to do what I want it to do, despite the permissions they ask for. I could just as easily choose a location from a list after entering a zip code. I hate doing it, but Smoothie King is the only app that I turn it on for. I then turn it off immediately after my QR code is scanned.

    • Blessed

      In my experience yes , my husband keeps his location off until he is there and turns it back off after ordering

  14. Jill

    It worked for me. Love there app

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! Glad to hear that!

  15. Jane

    I just got a Big Mac and my husband got a Quarter pounder with cheese, each $1.06! We just loaded the apps on our phones today and the codes scanned in just fine using their wi-fi I, assume. I did not have to turn on my data either. I am excited about this new deal, Thx Hip To Save!!!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Woohoo! You are SO welcome! Enjoy!

  16. Nancy

    Just had the grilled chicken sandwich- great deal!
    My husband got the quarter pounder.
    We each ordered on the app, and they brought it out to our car!

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)


  17. Adam

    I first went to Deals in the app, and added the $1 sandwich to my mobile order. Then I tried selecting the location/ time, and it said non of my nearby locations were participating, I had to start over each time. I’d rather have Mcdonalds use my location, and NOT display a really good offer that I can’t take advantage of. When the app first came out, that is how it worked.

  18. Quentin

    The best bargain for the $1 sandwiches are the Big Mac and the quarter pounder with cheese.
    When they ran the $1 sandwich deal earlier this deal, I took full advantage of it and got the limited Grand Mac. That was a good deal.

  19. todd

    Not a Mcds fan but love their app. I love the McCafe coupons. Even thought I’m not a fan, I may have to take advantage of these coupons in their app cause they are awesome.

  20. Rhonda

    I eat low carb and this will make my go to patty and cheese even cheaper.

  21. tina

    there is a coupon on the app for a FREE drink with the purchase of any sandwich over $1…can we get the $1 sandwich AND use the drink coupon too??

    • Lisa G

      No, they will only take one app coupon at a time. 🙁

    • vlt125

      A person at another site said he used the kiosk to order and pay using different coupons 4 times for $5 worth of food.

  22. Amanda Gorske

    Can somebody anybody help me!?? I just downloaded the app because I seen this $1 sandwich deal HOW AWESOME but guess what it’s not one of my “deals_ I’m confused I’m thinking everybody wld have gotten it?? I have 5 deals all expire in 4 days but this isn’t one of thm anything I could/should do? I’d be very very grateful if someone has an answer #n

    • Sam

      I’ve used the coupon for the last 2 days, but I just looked at my app and it doesn’t seem to be on there today. Not sure why, since it’s supposed to be available every day through September..

      • Sam

        Oops, just checked again and it’s there now. Maybe try closing the app or logging out and back in again?

  23. Lezlee

    How about chicken nuggets? My son’s favorite. Included in deal?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      HI there! I do occasionally find Chicken Nugget offers in my app. Be sure to keep checking! Hoping one pops up for you soon!

    • Libby

      Yes, I just used one for a 10 piece for $1.49.

  24. Jane

    I think I saw a 20 piece chicken nuggets for $4.99 in my app, is that a good price? Also, there is always a $3/$10 popping up daily, I am loving this new toy! My friend and I just got BOGO Frappes for $3.69 for both AND I just tried their new COLD BREW variety and it is awesome! TRY IT!

  25. Leah

    I wonder if this works for breakfast sandwich as well ?

  26. Richard

    Looks like the deal is dead. No $1 coupon this morning.

  27. Nancy

    This deal can only be used once a week now. If you redeem it, the offer won’t show up on your app again until the next week. I guess maybe they got a bigger response than they counted on for the daily deal. Bummer….

    • Rn

      Thanks for that update…I was wondering why I was not seeing it anymore

    • Peter

      I also want to thank you. McDonalds corporate did not give me a helpful response to this issue.

  28. Rn

    I still have the mcdougle daily in my app for $1

  29. Just passing through

    No $1 sandwich in my app except $1 McDouble 😔. Was loving the qpd

  30. Robert

    Have only had the $1 sandwich deal appear on my phone 3-4 times in the whole time that this deal has been available!
    Called McD’s & they had me clear app’s cache & then clear data, Still did not work!
    Anyone call BS? It’s like they want the PR Boost but not the actual deal to work.

  31. Craig

    I live in Northern Virginia. The offer appeared on my McDonalds app for a while — and it did say that it would be good through Sept. 30. But it now has been removed and has not been there for several days. In my opinion, this seems to be misleading advertising.
