I can say with full anecdotal evidence that the big mac tastes exactly the same as before, however, I did notice a slight sheen to the top bun which reminds me of the Wendy's buns for premium burgers.

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

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!

tasted the same to me, and was pretty messy/falling apart. Could just be the person that prepared mine

a combo for $3.15, i guess i can't complain too much. you get what you pay for
I heard they do put more Mac sauce. So mine was pretty messy too.

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.
