McDonald's offering half price Big Mac in return for reviews

Fancy a Big Mac and fries for £1.99? McDonald's will allow it – and unlike the last 'deal', where people were doing sneaky things with bar codes, this time the whole thing is entirely legitimate.

The fast food giant has launched a new scheme. McDonald's wants you to 'review' its food, basically, and provide some thoughts on your experiences with the chain.

To do this, you don't need to chat to Karen at Keele Welcome Break. You need to visit a new website called 'Food for Thought' and provide some insight. After, you'll be given a numbered code, which unlocks a world of excitement.

A Big Mac and fries usually cost £4.08, so the deal means you get the two for less than half-price.

The survey isn't too taxing, either – but, of course, it does mean you have to go through the motions, and pay for food in full to begin with.

Whether you can 'game' the whole thing and embark on a perpetual £1.99 Big Mac and fries cycle remains to be seen. It seems to be that you can. McDonald's said it will be 'reviewing and revising' the initiative, so that could change.

For now, there's no minimum spend, so you can buy the cheapest thing on the menu and still make use of the offer. And you can take advantage of it as many times as you want.

Remember – you'll need to have your original receipt, onto which you'll have to write down the five-digit code McDonald's gives you in return for your feedback. The receipt then becomes your voucher.

Happy eating.
