[Unobtainable Deal] Hamburger $0.20 (via mymacca's App) @ McDonald's

Moved to Forum: Original Link

~hii first post~

Maccas is doing a 20 cent hamburger deal at maccas in AUS for its 50th celebration. The deal is only redeemable through the Mymaccas app; meaning you have to use the QR code the app generates and either do an online order or go instore.

Times of deal officially are July 16th 12:00am - 11:59pm.

Deal is capped at 250,000 hamburgers, only one redeemable per mymaccas account. (Though it isn't hard making multiple accounts)

App Download Link (QR Code scanning required)

There are more deals and things occurring for the 50th celebration. Will post soon!

edit

Hi sorry for any confusion. If you try searching for this promotion your not going to find it as it's from the crew promotional booklet. I tried adding a screenshot of it but it didn't seem to work.
Hope that helps!!


Mod: It appears that this promotion (and likely other 50th birthday celebration deals) was cancelled or postponed. Moved to forums.

    Is this an offer rewards thing or normal where you can order multiple

      I can almost guarantee that it's gonna be an offer rewards thing, we'd bankrupt Macca's if it wasn't XD

      I'm not so sure the cows were 'sacrificed'. I don't think the abattoir staff had time to lay the cows down in a bed of flowers before slaughtering them in front of the gods.

    don't forget there is a hack out there if you ask for a slice of cheese on the side it's only 30c extra, give it a try

        Great idea, I've got some in the fridge I can just take a slice with me 😂

      That's more than double the price of the burger. Hand in your ozb licence.

      •  

        No it’s not, hand in your calculator 😂 (50% more)

        •  

          30c extra for cheese + 20c for hamburger itself = 50c total which is more than double than just buying the hamburger for 20c

      I value my dignity so thanks anyway but I'll bring my own cheese.

    Is it 1 per customer or is it as many as you want?

    • +3 votes

      If its like yesterdays it will be 1 only based on rewards code. Given its capped at 250,000 id say its capped to 1 only.

        Imagine if it wasnt and someone has a spare $50k to spend. We could pick one store and send the entire staff on stress leave.

      I’ll take 250,000 please.

      From the info I know, it's one per account. But who said u can't make more than one account

    Everything from MD's has been disgusting and overpriced.

    • +1 vote

      So 20c for a burger is overpriced in 2021?

      • +1 vote

        When it tastes that bad and is equally bad for you, id rather waste my calories on something enjoyable. 0.20c is still overpriced for something that poor but everyone's different

        This burger always used to be $1 lol
        To call it a "burger" is even being generous. It's a wafer thin patty on a small roll with sauce.

        •  

          Sounds like a burger to me lmao. And if you want less cardboard tasting meat ask for fresh

          •  

            @Itsbaakcoolo: I get the dirtiest looks if I ask for a $6 burger to be made fresh. I'm not sure I'm game for a 20c one aha

    Anyone else having problems with the Mymaccas app no longer working on Android? Even after reinstalling, it just freezes and can't click on anything.

      The Maccas app is gash. I am astounded how a company of that size has made such a mess of it for so long.

        Have you seen the HJs one? I don't know if it's just my phone but that app lags it like no other I've ever used.

      The person in the deal below mentioned it was on the Today show and it was discussed that there are more deals coming for the 50th Anniversary celebrations. So this deal is quite possibly correct.

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/630883

      And a quick Google search mentions 3 months worth of deals coming

        I guess someone could guess.

        But they already mention 'mymaccas app' which is completely unambiguous. Then to add another abbreviation, that adds nothing and just confuses, completely unnecessary.

      I think they meant GMO but just made a typo..

    What does GMA refer to here? Sorry if this is something obvious.

        Global Mobile App

        Ok, but what's a Global Mobile App?

        • +3 votes

          Presumably, the Global Mobile App refers to the single mobile app used by McDonalds worldwide. For example, the US McDonald's app is suspiciously similar to the mymacca's app if you take a look at the screenshots. They probably are the exact same app except that the branding on the Australian app is different.

            @mcpower:

            Presumably, the Global Mobile App refers to the single mobile app used by McDonalds worldwide

            You'd think so, but I'm pretty sure the "mymaccas" is the only option for online orders.

            •  

              @ash2000: Same app - just different name in different countries.
              Nobody else in the world calls McDonald's "Macca's"

      It's not obvious, and nor is it helpful using such abbreviations.

    All good but how hard is it to simply say “the app” instead of trying to be fancy with “GMA”?

      Think more people were interested in the 50 cent big mac tbh. That was okay, this isn't worth my time.

      •  

        Yep agreed. The hamburger is usually a punishment for naughty kids so can't imagine a huge line for these. I would consider this deal for a cheeseburger but i wouldnt bother with a hamburger even if it was free.

      you can just order twice in the same maccas

  • +1 vote

    That's the thing with these McD offers, you only get one burger per account.
    So pretty much useless for a family.

    The only one that's useful is the 20% off on the whole order, which they offer occasionally.

    •  

      It's easy to go to McDonald's with the family and everyone orders on their phone.

  •  

    This is about the right price for these.
