The wording almost makes it seem like they'll be continuing after the regular games end? Not entirely sure.

Since McDonald’s now have an order number - pick up system (IE: You now order via McD app/mobile, touchscreen, at counter, UberEATS, etc,... then get a number,... then pick up at counter when number called); McDonalds ordering system's algorithm can prioritize the orders,... not based on when your order was actually placed but prioritize order based on what’s being ordered & what’s ready.

With this promo, I usually just get the free fries ordered via their touchscreen. I’m noticing, other bigger orders (combo orders) with fries would generally get higher priority & faster service than mine; in other words, they get first dibs on the fresh fries - while I wait longer! Often, I'll see my free medium fries sitting in their red container by the fryer just waiting to be bagged! While the fries I get are usually still fresh (I’d say 15-20% are on the cold non-fresh side), a higher proportion of these Free Raptor Fries only orders have fries that would have otherwise likely been destined to be thrown out if not for this promo. Since the cost of fries is potato (dirt cheap) - literally,.... this promo isn’t all that costly to McDonalds & Raptors,... and it generates a lot more foot traffic & get folks used to ordering via McD app & touchscreen which are lower cost for McDonald’s.
This is why I usually go to the drive through if I'm only getting the free fries. They have to give out the orders in order.

All the complaints over FREE fries, the saying “you get what you pay for” is true, if you’re not paying for the fries don’t expect them to be as hot and fresh as the person who paid for their fries in their combo. There’s alot of people in this world who wish they could even get their hands on some cold hard fries just to fill their stomach in the lesser developed countries in the world, but here we are complaining about our fries not being hot enough, too salty, hard etc. Sorry for the rant but also seeing people in the McDonald’s restaurants as well that I usually go to complain about their free fries gets on my nerves. Like take what you get, if you dont like it then don’t eat it because you never even paid for it in the first place and consider it as a gift from McDonald’s and the raps.
I don't think your philosophy of lowering product standards for promotional items is the way to go. It's important to maintain consistency, even during promos and freebie handouts. I bet if you're running a AYCE restaurant, you'd be reheating old food to save money. "Wot wot wot, customers pay $10 for AYCE and still expect something FRESH? Any food at all is a win for them!"

I'm not sure if anyone has posted this but, the free French fries will continue through playoffs. Let's hope for a deep run for the Toronto Raptors. Attached a picture from the McDonald's twitter

Hrm... I think it's YMMV. The McD's I go to hand out the fries to me real quick, in one instance they called out my order number before I had even pulled the receipt out of the self-order kiosk despite there being 4 or 5 orders ahead of mine. For such a tiny order they get it out first, at least at the McD's I go to.
