McDonald’s Accepts Competitor Coupons?!

McDonald’s Accepts Competitor Coupons?!

Wowie! Check out the image below that Jessica spotted in Southern California. Stamped right on the front door of her local McDonald’s is a sign that states “We Accept Our Competitor’s Coupons on Any Comparable McDonald’s Item.” Ok, so I have a feeling this is not a nationwide promo, so be sure to check with your local McDonald’s. And we are not sure what they accept and don’t accept quite yet but it doesn’t hurt to try it. Be sure to let us know if you local McDonald’s accepts competitor coupons!

I saw the sticker on the drive-thru window at our McDonald’s in Florissant, MO.

What do they consider “competitors”? Any fast food place?

I worked at McDonalds for 9 years, and I’ve seen this happen at our store. The main one I saw was accepting a Burger King Whopper coupon and giving them a Quarter Pounder with Cheese instead. I would assume it would also work with any generic fish sandwich or chicken sandwich coupons. =) I can’t see them accepting any Arby’s coupons, though, at least not the roast beef ones because there’s nothing to compare it to at McDonalds.

My McDonald’s doesnt even accept most McDonald’s coupons (except for Entertainment Book coupons and Monopoly game pieces), they surely wont accept competitors’ coupons.

The McDonald’s located in Henderson, Ky has the sign posted on the drive-thru window.

I just went to my McDonalds and I asked the manager what their coupon policy was. He was not really sure. So I asked what kind of coupons I can bring in. He said any coupons from competitors. I asked about having a Del Taco coupon and he said that it can be used to get a cheeseburger. Something of comparable value. U cant have a coupon for a regular burger and expect McDonalds to give you a big mac or fish sandwich. But glad they have started doing this.

saw that sticker at my drive thru window in Eden Prairie, MN.
When I asked about what it entails, all of the employees seemed extremely unsure about the boundaries of the offer.
I went ahead and tried it out, I had a burger king coupon for two woppers, two fries, and two drinks for 5.99 and used it for mcdonalds big mac fries and drink. so basically two big mac value meals for 3 bucks each!

also used a wendys daves bacon burger coupon. (burger was free with the purchase of a fri and drink) so I got a large mcdonalds drink for 1 dollar, small fry for another dollar, and got a free quarter pounder with cheese!

planning on using it for any fast food coupons that include burgers, coffee drinks, or stuff like that, I wouldn’t try using it for arbys or tacobell.

I just tried this at a McDonalds in Aurora IL and was denied. They said that a comparable item to a whopper Jr. ($1.89) was a McDouble ($1). I said, I think it would be more like a daily double ($1.98). They said no. They also told me that they were loosing money on the coupon promo and could only take a coupon for a like PRICED item. REALLY….so you will charge me REGULAR price if I bring you a coupon? HUH??
