[Hack] $9.65 Small Big Mac Meal+ "Double Fillet-O-Fish" Hacked @ McDonald's via Mymacca's App + Counter

To my dear fellow fillet o fish lover ozBgn'ers.

This hack requires both app and at counter (I can’t seem to add steamed bun to cheeseburger order and there doesn’t seem to be an option for fillet o fish portions)

STEP 1 VIA APP
Order the $5.95 Big Mac Meal with Cheeseburger in the McClassics section of app.
Customize Cheeseburger: No Ketchep, No Regular Onions, No Regular Beef Patty, No Pickles, No Salt & Pepper. [Just Bu and a full slice of cheese]
PLACE ORDER. (Click through to payment section and make payment. You will then follow steps to check in and confirm you have arrived in store. Then you will receive an Order number ie: 148; to confirm your order has gone into the stores system)
https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/76531/68015/img-201903...

STEP 2 AT COUNTER
Point to your 148 order on screen and say; “that weird cheeseburger there, it is only bun and cheese, please ask the cooks at back to steam the bun like they do for fillet o fishes”
Then order:
1 x Tartare Sauce
2 x Fillet o Fish Portions
Pay and they will give you another order number.
Then say to the checkout staff; “please bag the 2 orders up together”
https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/76531/68013/img-201903...

Big Mac Meal with Cheeseburger $5.95 ORDER VIA APP (AT COUNTER; POINT AND ASK FOR STEAMED BUN TO THE CHEESBURGER)
1 Tartare Sauce $0.50 ORDER AT COUNTER/ OR ADD TO APP
2 Fillet Fish Portions $3.20 ORDER AT COUNTER
TOTAL $9.65

https://files.ozbargain.com.au/upload/76531/68012/img-201903...

I put the 2x fish portions inside the emtpy steamed cheeseburger; then dip the thing into the tub of tartare sauce.

[a normal fillet of fish is made of half a slice of cheese only; a double fillet of fish is 2x halfs slices of cheese, i think the ingredients are identical]

Full price Double Fillet of Fish burger only is $6.75. Big Mac $5.90. Small coke $2.60. Small Fries $2.20
This equates to $17.45 vs $9.65 [45% off]

OR
small mac meal @$9.70 + double fillet of fish burger only at $6.75
This equates to $16.45 vs $9.65 [41% off]

[please don't hate this post too much. I love a food ol fresh fillet o fish; and hate paying over $10 for McD's at the same time]

    STEP 2 AT COUNTER
    Point to your 148 order on screen and say; “that weird cheeseburger there, it is only bun and cheese, please ask the cooks at back to steam the bun like they do for fillet o fishes”

    They don't have to do this.

    Then order:
    1 x Tartare Sauce
    2 x Fillet o Fish Portions

    And you can just get these and retain a whole cheeseburger since Step 2 isn't a deal, it's claiming a different item from one that was purchased.

    Good on your for the effort. It was an entertaining read but not really a deal.

      Yup. They dont have to steam the bun. (But i have not been knocked back to date)

        I eat a whole food plant based diet. I eat boiled potatoes, rice, corn, etc, sandwiches, vegetables and fruit. Eating food like McDonald's will make you sick like most people who are overweight and obese who most likely will die due to complications related to their poor diet. I'll start you off at a good place where you can easily learn and convince yourself that even if McDonald's gave their food away for free you still should not touch it.

              $140 x 40…. im rich biatch

              •  

                @chinezejew: It's not $7. Double Fillet O Fish is $6.75. So $13.75 all up.

                Your deal is $9.65 and you lose a cheeseburger. So the savings is $4.10 minus a cheeseburger, which is around $3. So you're really saving around $1.

          I think it was $30 HKD for double fillet o fish.
          FRESH and yummy in HK

                @chinezejew: just to make your system understand better, some people have allergies and have to remove things from the standard.

                if you have an allergy, try having tons of it and see what happens. some remove meat for diets.

                if they remove those from their system they will close or your hacks cause the maccas to close. your neighbourhood will definitely love u. try telling them that.

                its not a bargain.
