I wonder if McDonald's wasn't expecting the Raps to get 12 or more three pointers so often this season(?) Not that I'm complaining. The times when I have a free coffee, plus the fries and a coupon for a $3 burger are the best. I have a McDonald's about a twenty minute walk away so this motivates me to get out for a bit.
Not complaining either, but all these free fries every other day makes me exercise more. I can always skip the free fries once in awhile (Nah!)

There's no way they are doing this without getting something in return from raptors.
Definitely Raptors are paying for the free fries. No way Mcdonalds would pick up the Tab. (my guess)

I suspect this is probably funded mostly by mcdonalds franchises as a promo.

fries aren't that expensive. even after considering labor/packaging etc. While the franchises are getting a bit of a hit they are also driving a number of customer purchases they would not have otherwise had.

they also get to write most of this off as a marketing expense.

although I agree - I don't think they foresaw this happening as often as they have been.

Not really. Most of the people are just going for free fries. Like myself everytime this promo happens i have like 3 accounts and just get the fries, i wouldn't dare buy anything else. Cause i don't like mcdonalds food in general. Fries are okay and their fish fillet is good. Thats it
😎Thanks RFD😎

There is an official partnership between mcdonalds and raptors: http://www.adnews.com/38241
At the very least mcdonalds are getting advertising from them:

Ever have a manager push back on the free fries if you’re adding to the order using another offer?

I’ve run into this a couple of times where they say I am double dipping. And that it says one offer per customer. I know they’re trying to get you to buy regular priced items along with the free fries.

I ask them what the difference is if I just walk away and come back in one minute and reorder. They usually don’t have an answer and allow me to use the coupon.

This is why I usually use kiosks as much as possible these days. Even though it might take abit longer, its just easier to make a couple of separate orders and then pick them up and the employees don't really care. Also its nice to take my time with my order especially when I'm switching to different accounts than feel like I have to get it done quick in front of a cashier.

After all the free fries this year, I think they might up it to 14 3-pointers next year.

Since their 3 point average is still 12 I doubt they will raise it to 14, what they may do is make it a special price like $0.99 if they keep it.
