McDonald’s Offering Free Food Through Christmas Eve: Everything You Need to Know

Get out your phone because you aren’t going to want to miss this deal. Starting today McDonald’s will be giving away free food with their app. 

Yes, you heard us correctly. The golden arches, your guilty pleasure spot, will be giving away free food starting today and lasting through Christmas Eve. For the next 11 days, McDonald’s will be giving away the favorite foods of iconic holiday characters. 

The catch? Well, there is hardly one. To get the deal, you need to download the McDonald’s app, and you will get the free grub with a $1 minimum purchase on there. And before we heard any griping, that’s less than the 20 oz. Coke we saw you buy last week. 

McDonald’s Eleven Days of Christmas

The Eleven Days of Christmas breaks down like this. On the first day of Christmas, Mcdonald’s gave to me the Griswolds’ Free Double Burger with Cheese (Dec. 14). 

Before we sing out the other eleven days of the song, here is the rest of the lineup. The Abominable Snow Monster’s Free Big Mac is available on Dec. 15. The Grinch’s Egg McMuffin on Dec. 16, John McClane’s Free McDouble on Dec. 17, Rudolph’s Free Medium World Famous Fries for Dec. 18, Gizmo’s 6 Pc. Chicken McNuggets on Dec. 19, and Buddy the Elf’s Free Hotcakes on Dec. 20. For the last three days, McDonald’s has Scrooge’s Hot or Iced Coffee on Dec. 21, Frosty the Snowman’s McFlurry for Dec. 22, and Frank Constanza’s Bakery Item on Dec. 23.

Why has the fast-food chain graced us with such a deal? McDonald’s U.S. Chief Marketing Officer Morgan Flatley says they wanted to spread some “extra cheer.” Who are we to question such a present?

“After a year like 2020, I think we could all use some extra cheer this season,” said Flatley. “What better way to celebrate and get into the holiday spirit than with free McDonald’s menu favorites for everyone, including Rudolph, the Abominable Snow Monster, and yes, even Scrooge.”

Treat yourself, New Years resolutions start in January!
