Hip Sidekick, Liza is a fan of the MyMcDonald’s Rewards program!

“We’ve had the Rewards program at our McDonald’s since February, and I’ve found it so easy to use! Just scan your barcode or order via the app and your points are automatically added! There are sometimes Bonus Points offers available, too, to help you earn even faster.

Even without Bonus Points, I’ve found that earning rewards happens SO quickly. We’ve earned lots of freebies even though we don’t visit that often. The redemption rewards are broken down into tiers. For example, I can choose from a vanilla cone, McChicken, and more for 1,500 points all the way up to a free Happy Meal or Big Mac for 6,000 points.

And you can redeem your rewards either through a mobile order or scanning your code at the drive-thru – easy peasy!”

    This would be so fun and such a good deal. My app has not even shown this yet. We live in Idaho. It must be only in certain areas.

    • Anniebananie

      It’s in the My Rewards section if you didn’t check there.

      • Anniebananie

        Sorry I think that’s to redeem points. I don’t see it either. I’m in North Carolina. I’m gonna keep checking.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes. So sorry for any confusion. It seems the offers do vary by account and location. Hoping it might pop up for you soon! 🤞❤️

    • Grink

      Also in Idaho (Boise area) and I didn’t have it either.

    I am in CT we dont have that but Anniebananie you are correct its in your My Rewards section but you must use 6000 points to redeem it. (not sure that is a deal?) Also I am not showing half of the coupons mentioned above (ie 50% of your next order etc). I think it maybe regional.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! Thanks for commenting. These offers can vary. 💞 I believe the rewards you can redeem with points are those that you’ve earned or unlocked by accumulating points. Hoping that helps! 🥰

  3. SLA

    I see it in my rewards but says it will use 6000 points?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, it seems that may be a different offer that you’ve earned by accumulating points. Thanks for sharing the offer you have available! 🥰

  4. Les

    Under deals I see it for $1 if u buy a combo

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for sharing where you spotted that offer, Les! 🙌🎉

  5. Renee

    Don’t see it my app under Rewards & Deals, but I do see other deals. The best ones are 20% off a purchase of a dollar or more, and 30% off a purchase of $5 or more. I live in Florida.
    Burger King has $3 Whoppers and Impossible Burgers on the app today (Wednesday).

  6. Lo

    These deals vary by account and store 😔. I don’t have it and my mcds are all owned by the same family.
    I was at a bball game and the nearby mcds had $2.49 happy meals. So open your app when you’re somewhere new

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! It does seem that offers may vary by location and account. Thanks for sharing your helpful tip about opening the app when near other restaurant locations, Lo! 💕
