EVERYONE loves a cheeky McDonald’s, and with this viral hack you can get your hands on a Big Mac and fries for less than half price every time you order.
Adrian Ghervan shared the very simple trick on his TikTok account, claiming it “works every time”.
Adrian says all you need to do is take an old receipt and write any five numbers in the space at the top of the receipt, just below where it says: “5 digit code.”
After filling in five random numbers, the McDonald’s fan orders his Big Mac and fries which comes in at £4.68.
When he hands over his old receipt, filled in with the random 5-digit code the server gives him a discount, seeing the price drop to just £1.99.
This hack seems too good to be true, but dozens of commenters say they’ve been using this technique successfully for years.
One commenter explained the magic behind this mind-blowing trick.
“It literally says on each and every receipt that you can do a survey and get the £1.99 meal”, they wrote.
If you complete the McDonald’s survey, you get a code to avail of the reduced price, but Adrian – and seemingly dozens of other people – have realised that any five digit code will work in place of an official survey code.
It’s sneaky, but super effective with many viewers admitting to regularly relying on the trick for cheap food.
“My mum does this, honestly I’m not allowed anything else”, said one commenter.
Another wrote: “I can’t believe people don’t know about this.”
“You guys didn’t know??? I’ve been doing it for 4 years and saved tons”, another confessed.
Two McDonald’s employees even confirmed that the tactic works all the time.
“I work in McDonald’s and yes you can easily fool us with this… it works”, she revealed.
Another employee admitted: “We never check the numbers don’t worry.”
