[McDonalds] $1 Big Mac or Egg McMuffin with new app account (Quebec only)

Create a new account in the app, get an offer for a $1 Big Mac or Egg McMuffin.

Quebec only - thanks to @ElroyJetson for catching the latest McDonalds screw-up.

Thread Summary
Thanks OP

But this is a McDonalds SNAFU. It won't work unless you are in Quebec.
This is a Quebec only offer (read the fine print in the coupon terms & conditions).

McDonalds screwed up & is pushing the Quebec only coupon out to new accounts nationwide.
You'd expect that a coupon pushed to your app would work where you live. But McD has a lot of SNAFUs and even worse customer service.

A manager can override a non-working coupon like this. But it's a huge YMMV. Most manager's won't do the right thing.

included offer is 2 regular size mcflurries for 5.50$ , wished it was like 1 for 2.50$
i guess they didn't get enough newcomers from last weeks 2$ price ! 1$ is good! no more FREE , i'd be shocked if they pulled that off again

true, but mcDs is way busier at peaktimes and they don't serve the orders FIFO method its all YMMV when u will get it if its busy

does anyone know if this method works? u get the code on ur app, 4 digit generated...u then quickly SMS text someone else so they can use it at the store...will that work? or the app/phone needs to be near the store to make the gen code work? it has a fast time expiry right if not used right away

I always get my order less than 5 mins at Timmy when I do a mobile order vs a long line up I see every time I am there. But I guess eventually it will get slower and equalized as more people will be using the app too. To be honest, I don't use MCD app to order, it's such a hassle.

What? The Tim Hortons app is complete garbage
You can’t even order a bagel or choose the donuts you want. It just has an assorted option.

I'm in Ontario, so it's working there. AB/BC/SK seem to be on a different timeline for the app rollout and offers, so reports of whether this is available in other provinces would be appreciated. I'll update the OP.

As of this morning (Monday), the Egg McMuffin coupon was not working. Manager can override.

The reason that it's not working is that the fine print says that it's a Quebec only offer

It's another McDonalds SNAFU. They are pushing a Quebec only offer out to new accounts nationwide.

I am in B.C. & created a new account in B.C... as usual the good ($1) offer wasn't there immediately but showed up about 5 min later. That is normal for the McD app. As you posted, it's a $1 Egg McMuffin or Big Mac offer. Like you posted, the coupon did not work when I tried to buy a McMuffin.

* The Manager can override. Huge YMMV there. Most managers won't override a non-working offer.
Especially if they realize why it isn't working. Reading the fine print shows that it's a Quebec only offer that McD is apparently pushing to all new accounts nationwide. OP @Erumuh you may be in Ontario, but check the fine print of the offer in your app & it will say valid in Quebec only. Not expected or normal, other than it's another McD SNAFU. But that is McDonalds for you.

And good luck if your Manager won't override the error. They'll just give you the 1-800 customer service number - which does not go to McD at all. McD contracts out their 1-800 number to a private firm whose explicit job is to placate customers and try to discard complaints. They have no power to resolve or adjust anything and try to *screen* customers. At best, and after wasting a lot of your time, they will forward a *request* to the same restaurant to contact the customer. And a lot of restaurant managers don't even bother trying to call the customer.

I can confirm that it's QC only. I put in an Ontario postcode when I registered
