Update, December 24, 2020: McDonald's has been spreading holiday cheer all month long with different deals and offers available through the McDonald's app. After weeks of free Big Macs, pancakes, and more, the deals are finishing up today (happy Christmas Eve, BTW!), and you can get free cookies with no purchase necessary.
Up until this point, the other offers required a purchase of at least $1 to be claimed, but to ring in the holiday, it seems that McDonald's is giving their warm cookies out as a free gift. The free cookies are meant to honor our guy St. Nick, so if you haven't been spending the last few days baking cookies from scratch, you can leave some Mickey D's out by the chimney tonight. Or, ya know, you can eat them yourself as you peel out of the drive-thru. Whichever!
Original Post, December 10, 2020: Travis Scott basically broke the internet when he got his own meal at McDonald's, this we know. But instead of playing Sicko Mode at the drive-thru, prepare to blast some Christmas songs (don't actually do this! Just order like a normal person) because McDonald's is serving up a week of free meals inspired by the favorite foods of some iconic Christmas characters.
Starting December 14, McDonald’s will feature a different holiday character each day and give away what they believe they would order at McDonald's. This is my kind of festive fanfic. These offers will be available exclusively through the McDonald's app. The featured menu item that day will be free, and all you have to do is make a $1 minimum purchase, which, let's be real, you were going to do anyway. Who goes to McDonald's for just one thing???
You can see the full list of deals in the calendar above, but we'll highlight some of our faves. It kicks off with a free double cheeseburger in honor of the Griswolds from my favorite Christmas movie ever, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. On the 18, you can get a free medium fry for Rudolph (obsessed with the image of a reindeer eating fries), on the 20th, you'll get free hotcakes in honor of Buddy the Elf from Elf (because of the maple syrup, duh!), and on the 22, you'll get a free McFlurry in honor of Frosty the Snowman (is this cannibalism?? Unclear!). This cal also doubles as a fun holiday guessing game...can you name where all the other characters are from?
The daily deals wrap up on December 24 when the chain will give you Chocolate Chip Cookies for totally free (no $1 purchase required) in honor of Santa himself. As for the glass of milk? You're on your own!
