McDonald’s likes to get into the seasonal spirit throughout the year. Whether they’re giving away free McDonalds with the Mariah Menu during the holiday season, doing things like throwback Thursdays, or offering free fries on Free Fry Day, they’re always looking for a reason to cut prices.

This July, they’ve introduced Camp McDonald’s, where you can get free McDonalds fries, coffee, toys, and more all month long (well, starting July 5).

But before we tell you everything you need to know about Camp McDonald’s, you should check out our McDonald’s deals page to be updated on the best McDonald’s deals.


Spend at least $1 or order specific menu items on the McDonald’s app to get the cheap or free McDonalds each day.

Just like the McDonald’s Mariah Menu, all you need to do to get your free McDonalds is spend at least $1 (the price of a large soda) in the McDonald’s app or order a specific menu item to qualify for the free McDonalds between July 5 – 31.

This deal is only available through the app, so be sure to download and sign up for the McDonald’s Rewards program as soon as possible, so you don’t miss a single deal.

You can place a to-go order via the app, or use the app in drive-up or in stores (where applicable) to get the free menu item of the day.


Add the free Mcdonald’s food item to your order before you check out.

Before you check out, make sure to add the McDonald’s freebie to your order. Here are the items you can get from July 5 to 31:

Order through the McDonald’s app on Thursdays & Sundays for exclusive merch and shows.

Instead of getting free McDonalds food, you’ll get exclusive McDonald’s merch from various artists (Free & Easy, innisfree, and M@rket) on Thursdays, and in-app performances from blackbear, Omar Apollo, Bibi, and Kid Cudi on Sundays.

All you need to do to get access to these merch drops and performances is spend at least $1 on the McDonald’s app.



Check the app after July for additional free McDonalds food.

The Deals section of the McDonald’s app is constantly filled with deals. Some are for mobile order & pay only, so just make sure you look to see each deal’s specific requirements.

Here are some past examples of deals we’ve seen come and go on the app:

  • Buy 1 get 1 free Happy Meals every Wednesday
  • Free medium fries with any purchase
  • Free medium fries and soft drink with purchase of a signature crafted sandwich
  • Buy 1 get 1 free sandwich
  • $3 off any purchase of $15 or more (which could, in theory, cover the cost of many of the items on the holiday freebie list)

If you’re a new app user, you should find an offer for a free Cheeseburger, McChicken, or Sausage McMuffin with Egg — no purchase necessary — in the Deals section.
