mcdonald's corporate smartened up. last year, MCD lost $5.8 million worth of fries

https://business.financialpost.com/news ... ench-fries

How the Raptors' historic run left McDonald's on the hook for millions in free french fries
$5.8 million is based on the menu price... actual cost to them is probably less than $500,000 (25 cents each). McDonalds spent $70 million in advertising in 2017, so the $500,000 is nothing. Also, as @TheCheapCDN mentioned, many people will buy additional items on their visit so it's likely that McDonalds turned a profit on the promotion.

Some of the promos require using the app to purchase, the OP wasn't clear.

I'm ok with the $1 spend to get the free fries. I'd pretty much always get something to go with them anyways. Too bad they don't do dollar drinks year round.

The app is required. I'm indicating that you need to download the app to get the deal

Edited it to make it more clear.

Yes of course. What I meant was if you have to order from within the app, or if you can order from the counter/kiosks/drive-thru.

Hopefully there will be lots of times where these are concurrent with the Popeyes/leafs promo. Cheeseburger and fries, with large drink and tinders

Unless the stores are close together you'll waste gas or time going to both =/

Well this sucks balls. I got their free fries after almost every Raptors win last year save for like 3 games or something. Gonna miss that ritual. :(

This year I'll be getting it much less often I guess. Confused Face

I knew they would change it this year considering how easy it is to achieve that 3 point stat in todays NBA. Oh well, skip for me
