I'll try it if they'll let me have one for $3. It better not be tiny though.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

On my phone I have a McDonald's app with coupons
"Offer expires in 6 days"
Big Mac $3
Buy a sandwich get one 50% off
and
Mobile orders only: Spend $10 or more pre tax & get $2 off

Hopefully, once available, the McPlant will be offered for $3 in the same app.

These "burgers" are so processed with crap to make them taste like beef. MUCH rather have the beef!

That's cheaper than the location across from the ROM, it's $6.19 there.

Some app offers are targeted, so you're lucky you got the $3 Big Mac offer.

Exactly!

I much prefer a good veggie burger that actually tastes like a good veggie burger vs one pretending to taste like a beef burger.

Pretty sure McDs is not using you to come up with their marketing copy. Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

This week, the app is telling me that it's $3 for a Quarter Pounder burger.
I wonder how much the "special" price will be for the McPlant when the time comes to promote that in the app...hopefully $3.

Why? Have you tried? Is it same as the ones they were piloting in select locations?

The beyond meat burger at A&W is great and my fav fastfood burger regardless of meat or not

To bring in more customers, all McDonald has to do is bring back their pizza. If production time is an issue, just make it order online/phone and schedule a pick up time.

I like that Mcds is honest and calling it a plant sandwich, instead of a burger (which it is not). I'll give it a try just because of this.

When I go to McD's (which isn't often) I'm not going to get something healthy or trendy. I just want a Big Mac combo with a sundae or a coffee and muffin or even a breakfast combo.
