How to Get a Free McChicken at McDonald's for One Day Only

How does free lunch or dinner sound? McDonald's wants to help you out with that, but the offer is only good today, May 10, so plan your calendar accordingly!

The fast food restaurant is offering up a McChicken sandwich on the house in the one-day-only deal, and the only thing you have to do to secure yours is order through the McDonald's app, with no purchase necessary to redeem—although the offer is limited to one per person at participating locations.

Just log in to the app—or install it on your iPhone or Android—and navigate to the offers section.

According to WHIO, a spokesperson for the company noted that customers can also redeem in-store with a coupon code.

The rep continued, “Customers can use the app to order ahead and save time with Mobile Order & Pay, plus they can join MyMcDonald’s Rewards to earn points on every order to redeem for free McDonald’s.”
