    Isn’t better to get a double beef n bacon meal for $4.95?

      Is that deal actually still available? I thought it got canned (in NSW at least) as I haven't seen it on the app for awhile.

        Yes, I’m in nsw and it’s still available

        In the app, go to the burger the select small meal and the price will automatically change to $4.95

        Double beef & bacon meal in a can.

        What will they think of next?!

    • +2 votes

      2 small double beef & bacon meals for $9.90 would be worth the extra 35c over 1 medium quarter pounder meal for $9.55.

      Its cheaper than buying a standard (single patty) quarter pounder.

      • +6 votes

        My mistake. I read the title and assumed without reading the deal (title doesn't say double quarter pounder). You're right.

      • +2 votes

        Ah, so that’s what deal about

        •  

          This sentence is a deal, it has less words than normal.

  •  

    Wait, where can you get a Medium Double quarter pounder meal for $11? Where I live it's like $13.45 for a medium

    •  

      Edit: Oh I misread the initial post
      I’m not sure how the meal is so cheap initially

    •  

      $13.20 for me

        good enough reason to not spend any money at McDonalds under any circumstance, yet here we are at 300 upvotes and counting.

    Lol, I think people aren’t understanding the purpose of this deal

    Say you wanted to get a quarter pounder, OP is saying that instead of quarter pounder you order double quarter pounder instead and just remove one patty and you’ll save yourself money. It’s not clear because it’s easy to miss the DOUBLE quarter pounder part

    So they aren’t suggesting that you eat a quarter pounder with no meat, but that you buy a double quarter pounder and end up in the same place but save money.

    It’s actually quite an interesting hack and would be handy

      I think a lot of people must have had little sleep last night. I thought it was pretty easy to understand though. Pretty good hack

      • -15 votes

        a pretty good hack is turning something useless into something useful. this is just tightassery on an epic scale

        • +11 votes

          Not even close to epic tightassery. When u get to ordering 4 softserve cones with toppings and then asking for a mc flurry cup to save a few cents that's getting to epic tightassery. This is just a pretty simple menu hack. And you get an extra slice of cheese as well.

        •  

          If you're ordering online why wouldn't you use this method? Like saying using the x% off vouchers in app or using the buy 5 get one free coffee is being a tight ass. This platform is about getting things cheaper and this method achieves that with little effort.

          •  

            @eggaz: Why - I suggest you consider this OzBargain cost - benefit analysis:

            (Added Time + Effort) > (Price Reduction - (Risk hack may not work)) = Savings

      Same place, with an extra slice of cheese!

      The title wasn't clear to begin with but I think mods have reworded it to make sense.

      • +2 votes

        I reworded it after someone screwed it up causing chaos and confusion

        •  

          Your first title wasn't very clear, hence the confusion.

          "(hack) Quarter Pounder & Meals 13% discount via mymacca's App"

          New title is much clearer!

  • +2 votes

    Wasn't clear at first from the title what the actual discount was, but honestly that's kinda clever (and unbelievably cheap). Ty op, nice little menu hack.

      Actually you're getting free cheese and saving $1.50

          It was supposed to be humorous in line with the Ozbargain spirit…..this as a bargain sounds quite concerning for those who need to go to this length.

      •  

        woudn't be surprised if some are, but that's beside the point when you're on ozbargain isn't it.

      There are all sorts of hacks like changing kfc bucket deals and all the way back to dominos ordering pizza with the lot and changing the toppings to the pizza type you really wanted. I’m not sure why this post attracted so much vitriol but there have definitely been similar bargains in the past.

      Some people justify it by saying that they are putting these new systems to the test, others are just happy to get cheaper food. These corporations pay millions of dollars for these systems so there is some level of smugness involved when these bugs are discovered. When you want to change all your staff into terminals I think this comes as part of the transition cost

    ….epic deal title just got more epicer. wtf is that?

    •

      •  

        not that!

      •  

        Well the whole point is getting a quarter pounder for 14% off, all the extra stuff can just be in the deal post, so title could be as simple as [Hack] 14% off Quarter Pounder Burger/Meal @ McDonald's

        (also I'm assuming you don't need the app, can also be done on the screens instore?)
