expired McDonald's Double Cheeseburger $2.90

1523

Hi all,

I was just browsing a link shared by a friend of a friend of a friend on Facebook and thought it would be a good share. Double Cheeseburger link here

It's details how to use the Cheesy BBQ burger to get a Double Cheeseburger for $2.90 instead of $4.35.

According to the blog post to get a Double Cheeseburger order:

  • A $2 Cheesy BBQ burger with:
  • No bbq sauce
  • Add mustard
  • Add pickles
  • Add an extra cheeseurger patty
  • Free packs of ketchup

Open the burger, add the free ketchup and it will be a Double Cheeseburger.

    This is probably going to be negged, but I cant believe people actually do this. But I like seeing these posts.. They're really creative!

    Do the cheeseburgers still have mustard on them? I can't remember my cheeseburger coming with mustard for a long time, if ever.

    • +1 vote

      They've always had mustard on them.
      Its a much smaller amount than the ketchup, but it has always been there.

    •  

      0.7mL of it. They "technically" have mustard on them, but it's not at all uncommon for the staff to forget, not be bothered to put it on, or for the dispensers to just not be working (parts tend to go missing all the time during cleaning). If you like the mustard, ask for extra and you'll definitely get some, but most people just don't notice/care.

    It's missing a slice of cheese. Of course it's cheaper if it has less inside. Who on earth keeps upvoting blindly?

  •  

    When they had the McDouble, I'd always get a Cheeseburger meal, and a McDouble, then combined the burgers to make a (kinda of) triple cheeseburger (well, 3 paddies, 2 pieces of cheese). Was about $6.50ish, instead of $8.50-$9.

    They have the double beef and bacon now, so can still kinda do it (cost $1 for the bacon).

    Isn't a double beef and bacon burger $3?

      If your not happy to pay an extra 10 cents to not mess around with all this changing crap AND getting bacon then you have some serious issues.

    •  

      I was about to post the same thing. It's better value imo to get a slice of bacon for 10 cents more and w/out a slice of cheese. I suppose people are just voting for the 'exploiting coolness' factor of this deal.

    I thought you weren't allowed to modify any items on the loose change menu? I've been told by at least 2 Maccas that changes weren't allowed, they are fixed.

  • +1 vote

    Pretty sure there are T&C's that you can't make substitutions/changes on the $2 bbq cheeseburger. Which means this is all down to the person you get served by.

    And nails, yep there's still mustard on the cheeseburger, but it's only a small amount and usually covered by the ketchup

    Is the the McDonalds version of Gaol Breaking?

    Last I checked, tomato sauce, mustard, pickles were all free too add onto your burger. Hence no need to add tomato sauce yourself

  •  

    Or get the double beef and bacon burger without bacon.

    I tend to mess with the loose change burgers all the time and they've never told me that I can't make changes. But I guess it would be naive to except McDonald's staff to know what they are doing.

    Here I was thinking you were complaining about the burger, it looks awful!

  •  

    The dohble beef in bacon burger is $3 just ask for it without bacon exact same.things half the words I would perfer to keep it simple and not risk maccas screwing up my order for 10c more..

      Seriously, doing all and inconveniencing the staff at McDonalds over $1.45?

      Comeon guys, this is just asking McDonalds to be strict and close off all these loopholes so you don't waste their time

      •  

        Suggesting that people don't utilise a loophole for the purpose of keeping said loophole open so that they can continue to not utilise it is a bit pointless…

    IMO they should just list all their ingredients and allow you to select your own burgers.

  •  

    I've made up my mind what I'm having for McLunch today. Nice one OP.

  •  

    I've been doing this since they had the bbq cheese burger come out..

    This is some next level Walter White right here.

  •  

    Just get a double beef and bacon, you get an extra slice of bacon for 10cents. I remember when McDouble was $2 and way before that when the original double cheeseburger was $2.

  •  

    I love this!

    Some stores wont let you modify things on the loose change menu. They deem the contents "Already too cheap".

    I just buy Double Beef n Bacon's for $3 and then manually remove the bacon. Screw the 10c.

    The kitchen crew are likely to screw up your order if the grill slip is long and you'll just have to return. Save yourself some time and pay the extra 10c.

    I work at McDonalds btw.

    Yummy, but don't forget to factor in a share of your future coronary artery surgery costs.

    Order everything from supermarket and cook yourself, it probably only costs you $1.

  •  

    What have I done.

    But nice find!

  •  

    You'll also need to buy a small chips for $1, so you have a knife to spread the tomato sauce :)

  • -1 vote

    You can't actually do this. mcdonalds will only let you take things off the cheesy bbq burger but they won't let you add. I get it all the time without the bbq sauce and just put chips on it to make it nicer and no mcdonalds has ever let us add extras like tomato sauce..

    This is so stupid, but funny

    not in the sense that i care less about you saving money, sure go for it, i couldn't care less about McDonald's, but that people still think McDonald's is actual food, and has any amount of actual nutrients.

    You can get double beef and bacon's for $3 at my store, but i suspect that's not everywhere.

    Hey look, guys! I was originally getting ripped by paying $5 for a double cheeseburger, now it's only $3! Still a complete rip, but it was cheaper than before! Must be a deal, to the front page!

    Why would you do this instead of ordering a double beef and bacon for 10 cents more?

    • +3 votes

      was thinking the exact same thing. Not worth the effort + you get bacon for $0.10

  • +13 votes

    No deal.

    Double Beef and Bacon for $3 much better offer, and for far less effort.

    Mcdoubles were $2 until recently. Now $4.40.

    120% increase. Unbeleiveable!

      So it… doubled puts on kilos

    •  

      exactly right mate! but they took it off the menu because it was too big a seller.
      still in the registers though, so u can always ask for it and see if the teenager serving you gives it to you for $2.

    • +1 vote

      $2 wasn't the permanent price of the McDouble. You don't expect sales at a supermarket to last forever, so why is this any different? You were getting a good deal when they were available for $2 (for quite some time, too), but that doesn't mean you're entitled to it forever.

        Well considering the US has had permanent $1 McDoubles for 5 years now it was assumed it would continue here. We're not feeling entitled just annoyed that for some reason McDonald's decides to cater to those with lower budget selectively. In other countries chain stores have the same product for a similar price for years on end, it's only here they enjoy playing switch special every few months for affordable options. I for one remember the good times stuffing my face for $5 with 2 Mcdoubles, small fries and student edge small drink. Best bulking food on the go.

          FYI we live in Australia, not America. Are Australian McDonald stores even owned by America?

        •  

          Most stores are owned by franchisees. Otherwise there's the McDonalds Australia corporation, which is for all intents and purposes, the same as the US counterpart.

        •  

          A lot of things are cheaper in the US, I don't see how that has much of bearing on the prices here. The McDoubles weren't introduced at $2, so there was no reason to believe that was their permanent price.

          just annoyed that for some reason McDonald's decides to cater to those with lower budget selectively.

          They're well within their rights to rotate the products on the loose change menu - there's nothing inherently wrong or bad about that. Next there'll be complaints regarding any of their limited time promotions. It's not as if they're offering no options at all in that price range, nor did they leave the McDoubles without replacement ($3 double beef and bacon), so I don't know how you can complain about selective catering.

        •  

          I don't really how adding a piece of bacon while removing a slice of cheese while upping the price by $1 is acceptable. For me it's just blantant profiteering. Unacceptable on McDonald's part.
