Perhaps you already heard about the new promotion by McDonald’s in the US offering all you can eat french fries. So wrong on many levels. I wonder how McDonald’s will control this if a couple of young kids come in and one orders fries and the rest a soft drink. Good luck!
In Austria they are offering a promotion for drive through (McDrive). If your order is not ready in 90 seconds you get a free Big Mac.
To cook a fresh burger and fries should take longer than 3-5 minutes to prepare. So they might as will hand out free Big Macs all day. If people are smart they will realize the following:
- McDonald’s is desperate to attract people by giving away free things
- By telling people that they get something free if McDonald’s is slow is a wrong way of promoting. If someone receives their order before 90 seconds, there is no way the food is fresh.
They might as well offer a free big Mac with every order to save their dignity. Anyways, it will make them appear better but at the same time we will all be aware of the actual value of a Big Mac, peanuts.
Just a note, there was no fine print on this ad so I am curious in regards to the restrictions on minimum order.
There is always a catch with McDonald’s, this time it is to catch your money 😉
