I also noticed a different look to the bun. Almost reminded me of a pretzel bun upon first glance.

Likewise - No taste difference and also went nuts during the free / $1 and $2 Big Mac promotions with the + gmail trick ended at like +40 lol

One thing I noticed today while using the app is when I order a coffee through the app, it keeps track and gives me a free one after 7 buys. However, the cups still have the sticker for buy 7 get 1 free. So really, ordering coffee through the app each time will yield 2 free coffee after 7 coffee purchases!

Both of mine definitely had lots of mac sauce and were difficult to eat without the middle sliding out.

I dont know how the others got the Burger with fries/drink for $3.... because I only got the Burger for that price. (i dont have the mcd app)

The burger seems to taste quite decent. It does seem to taste better than before... Or i am imagining..

Definitely missed this. I have about 8 full cards of stickers in my desk drawer from the past month and a half. Could have been 16 freebies!

So did McDonald's fix their billing issues when ordering through the app. Alot of people's credit cards were getting compromised a few month's ago.

I couldn't get the meal glitch to work (Ontario).

Also, looks like the meal is the same price... so the Big Mac was $3... and if you wanted to add the medium fries and a drink, it was an extra $4.19....

I just got lunch somewhere else... it was packed there and the whole board was full of orders. Wasn't going to get McDonalds without fries.

I haven't had any issues with billing but for the compromise of credit cards, I try to mitigate that with using a virtual number from my STACK card. That way if it does get taken, I can just generate a new one.
