I feel like McDonald's is getting too expensive.

Is the $2.50 off coupon always available in their App? or it's targeted
I'm not sure what the deal is there. I used it, so it deleted, but then a day or two later it suddenly popped up again.

It comes back if you swipe down in your app 20+ times

Rip-off!! Not only did MickyD's raise their prices again but reduced the mobile coupons. Most recent one I'm showing shows only $1 off instead of the usual $1.50 for breakfast meals and $2.50 for combo's. WTF...

YOU'RE RIGHT!! This is very strange. So now, it's only a dollar off $8.19, while the paper coupon is still good for a $5.79 combo.
That's just wrong. They'e supposed to be encouraging us to use the app, not discouraging it!
I wonder what other burger places have for using THEIR app...
(so much for not making me want to check other apps. lol)

Gas price is actually down, for now. (yes, I know it would be 4.5 cents lower than it is, but at least it's still low for now...)

If McDonalds is getting to expensive, why not try applying there to work some shifts? Don't workers get a free meal there?

That might depend on the franchise itself. I doubt the meal is free, but there might be a company discount.
One thing I'm pretty sure about, if the meal isn't free, you can use the same coupon discount over and over again while also getting a company discount.

A person would just get sick of hamburgers if they're eating it every day. When I was in university and working at Starbucks, I got sick of all frappuccinos after a month. I couldn't drink anything from Starbucks even for years after I had left. On the other hand, I had co-workers who were having lattes and americanos every day to the point where they needed 6-7 shots of espresso in a venti drink for the caffeine to do anything.

Naww...there's lots of choice on the menu. There's nothing saying it has to be burgers only to get the deal. There's chicken burgers, there's nuggets, wraps...etc. (also salads...)

50% off, and only on a specific formula. (Has to be a "meal" for you, can't get 12 burgers to go for 50% off as they're obviously not for you)
At least as of 10 years ago. I doubt they got more generous.
Managers get free meals and with discretion can gift a few to employees a day to reward performance or positive actions. But standard is 50%.

Coupons expire February fifth. I'm not sure if I'll bother after that. Their prices are too high and the app only takes a dollar off now.

I very rarely eat there anymore.

My go to has become A&W buddy burgers. 2 w/o cheese come to $4.10 and they are so much better than a Mcdouble.

As soon as you open the app, it gives you a link to the digital version of the mailed coupons.

Also, the app restored the 50% off Poutine coupon next to the dollar off stuff, but only until January 15, 2017.
The digital version of the mailed coupons are still good until Feb. 5. 2017.
