McDonald's Is Giving Out Free French Fries Every Week for the Rest of the Year

McDonald's is launching new deals through its mobile app, including a free order of medium fries with a $1 purchase every week for the rest of the year.

If you hit the drive-through window only to hem and haw over whether you're just getting a burger or if you should throw some fries in the bag, this deal is for you.

Starting in this month, McDonald's is offering free french fries every Friday through the end of the year. All you have to do is make a purchase of at least $1, and you'll be rolling in the crispy, salty starch sticks. (As long as you're capable of rolling in the number of fries that come in a medium order.)

The nation's second-best fast-food french fries can be attained by downloading the McDonald's mobile app and registering for a free account. The app has been loaded with all kinds of deals -- not dissimilar to the kind of deals you find on the Wendy's app -- that will help you make the most of your trip to the Golden Arches. Other deals include a free medium soda with a $1 purchase or free hash browns with the purchase of a breakfast sandwich. 

Fortuitously, National French Fry Day falls on a Friday this year (fry day on a Friday?). That means you'll be able to celebrate the nation's favorite side dish with a free 340-calorie serving of fried potatoes.

a group of people in a store: McDonald's has thousands of locations all around the world. We asked six of our international colleagues - in Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, and the Netherlands - to visit a McDonald's location near them.They found that the chain catered to local tastes with regional variations on popular items like mayonnaise-flavored French fries and coconut pies.While some were surprised by the quality of McDonald's regional items, others were disappointed. We also tried one of the new items featured at US locations of McDonald's.  With over 36,000 locations in more than 100 countries, McDonald's is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. While it made its name with staples like the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder, the chain tailors its menu to local tastes, which means that a McDonald's in India will look very different from one in the United States. After trying one of McDonald's newest items in the United States, we asked some of our international colleagues in six different countries - Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the UK - to go to a McDonald's near them and tell us about the experience. We found that each catered to regional tastes with variations on the chain's traditional offerings that surprised us. See what our colleagues had to say below.
