It’s another week, another new invention for McDonald’s. This time, those golden arches are gifting us spicy nuggets for anyone who wants to give a kick to their mealtimes. If that doesn’t already have you interested, what if you could pick some up for free?
It was no secret that a big box of those breaded wonders were coming to McDonald’s branches, and now that they’re here, we can’t get enough. Ronald McDonald isn’t clowning around — there really is a way you can get spicy nuggets for free.
You can pick up nuggets in-store or using the app, but for this bit of tech trickery, you’ll need the app. The McDonald’s app currently has an offer for £5 off a £20 spend. That may seem like a lot, but if you’re doing the lunch run for your mates or are feeling particularly hungover, it’s easy to spend £20 at the fast food giant.
On average, McDonald’s spicy nuggets cost £3.19 for 6, £3.49 for 9, or £4.99 for 20 — meaning they’re the same as normal nugs. Your £5 off can get you a whole box for absolutely free. If you only manage to spend £10, there’s also a voucher for £3 off — giving you six spicy nuggets for just 19p.
You’d better be quick though, the vouchers are only valid until Sunday, August 11. By that time, I imagine you’ve (hopefully) already have had your first bite of spicy nuggets.
