A Mobile Coupon for McDonald’s Products

The past years saw the success of mobile applications developed by chain stores and major fast food companies. Perhaps the most successful is Starbuck’s mobile app which can be used to make purchases and earn rewards.

With the introduction of McD App, McDonald’s is trying to up the ante by allowing its customers to get good deals directly from their mobile devices. According to Bloomberg, the new app is like a glorified coupon designed specifically for the millennial patrons of McDonald’s.

McD App offers a comprehensive list of store menu that customers can view from their device. Each item in the menu contains add-in options and promo price. You can redeem the offer and present the code to MacDonald’s checkout counter to get the promo. So instead of distributing traditional promotional flyers with coupons, McDonald’s is now making it easier for mobile users to get great deals.

The app is easy to use and straightforward. You will be prompted to specify your location when using the app for the first time. That’s because the app’s list of promotions is currently limited to certain U.S. cities and states.

The home screen gives you access to the menu, current offers, and restaurant locator. When you see an offer you want, simply tap the redeem button and show it to the McDonald’s crew. The discounts will be applied to your purchase upon checkout.
