    Is that cappuccino quality coffee for $1 or percolated/instant?
    6 nuggets for $2 makes a nice snack and the sauces there are free.

      It's made of ground beans and it contains hot milk? Whaddayawantforadollah?

      But the REAL ozbargain question is… how many of those sauces can you get for free?? :-P

      • +18 votes

        Whenever I ask for tomato ketchup and they ask me how much I want, I reply, true Ozbargain-style, "As much as you're legally allowed to give me."

        Usually walk off with a good handful of ketchup there. :D

          No hating on Aussie made cars mate!

      •  

        I believe only 1 sauce per 6 nuggets is free.
        From memory..
        Honey Mustard, Sweet n Sour, Spicy, BBQ Plum, Sweet chilli

        •  

          IME Hungry Jacks just hand them over.

          McDonalds give an allocation with nuggets otherwise charge, they seem to have really tightened up. Though if you ask right at the end of the transaction and they're busy they might just throw you one :)

      Ask for a spicy sauce… it's the best to add to your burger to give it a bit more of a kick.

    is mcdonalds spare change menu still around (no posters instore but can you still ask for items from it?)

    • +1 vote

      Yes, you can get $2 double chb's, $2 chicken n' cheeses, $1 10pack bites, 30c soft serves and $1 small soft drink.

      • +8 votes

        I think the 10 pack of bites is $2 and also small fries is $1. Maybe I use that menu a little too much…

      • +12 votes

        Don't forget the ever so popular $2 garden salad as well ;)

        • +59 votes

          What's a salad?

        • +1 vote

          Salad along with the burgers actually makes me feel less "yuk" in the stomach after McDonalds. (usual order 3 chicken n' cheese, 2 double cheeseburgers, 1 small fries and a garden salad). Great… now I'm hungry.

          You don't win friends with salad.

        double cheeseburger and chicken cheese are off the menu now (chicken cheese is back to $2.95) and the loose change menu only applies between 10:30am - midnight now . shame because the majority of visits i make are after midnight .. and also for a chicken cheese. the only burger is a double beef & bacon and they've bought back the soft serve w/ flake for 80c. i spend way too much time there ..

        • +9 votes

          WHAAA!?

          Without the double cheese or chicken cheese, the loose change menu ceases to be a menu.

          Rofl at limiting it to midnight to avoid the swarm of drunks after their night out taking advantage of the cheap grease.

        • +3 votes

          since when? I got a $2 double cheese and a $2 chicken cheese on the way home from work this afternoon.

          Last time I got a chicken cheese burger, I only got 1/2 a cheese!!!! Wheres my other half!?!/1/1?1?

          NOOOO NOT THE CHICKEN CHEESE :(

          It's always been half a slice of cheese!

        • +1 vote

          Ive only had it once (the chicken and cheese) and imo, giving half a cheese is not a very good first impression. They might as well give half a chicken too.

    Looking at the ad, the bacon cheeseburger is $2.95 which isn't really great value at all. Other menu items look good though.

    •  

      They changed it, just saw the new ad.

      Reminded the store manager at Bankstown that it starts today…lol

      -Me at counter at 3;30pm today.

      Me: "Apparently you guys have a $1 shake?"
      *Girl at counter goes and asks to manager who comes over.
      Manager: "$1 shake, no I don't think so…"
      Guy on drivethrough: "Yeh some lady just asked me about it as well… weird"

      Me: "I just heard it on the radio, Apparently it called a 'penny pincher' menu…?"
      Manager: "Ohhh yeh that thing… that's starting on the…oh Today!".
      "Let me fix that one for you now."

      Sigh…. So organised there. ;)

        I can totally imagine the drive through situation
        Guy on drive-through: What can i get you?
        Lady: Can i get a thick-shake?
        GoD: Yep, that's $2.95.
        Lady: So sorry, i want to order a "THICK-SHAKE"!
        GoD: Yep, that's $2.95!
        Lady: CAN I GET A THICK-SHAKE!?
        GoD: $2.95!!!!

      Our store had the Penny Pinchers poster up on the drive-thru menu board tonight. As someone said, they've changed the price of the nuggets and cheeseburger from $1 to $2 after releasing the ad since the version above from the ad agency where everything is only $1.

      I was able to get a Bbq Bacon Cheeseburger for $2 and in a meal with large fries and large frozen beverage for $5.95 total. Better value than McDonalds, where they don't allow you to combine the Value Picks burgers as a meal.

    5 nuggets?

    they must only be trialling it at certain stores, last i heard im sure it was only 5 nuggets unless some stores are doing a 6 nugget deal for $2

    Went to Carindale HJs this morning and both the drive through chick and manager treated me like I was an idiot when I asked for the $2 nuggets. Continued to treat me like an idiot when I told them that they have a penny pincher menu. And still said they had no idea what was going on when I showed them the ad. So well organised!

      We should really call up HJ HQ and ask them to sort this mess out!

    no go from Nepean Hwy Moorabbin store
    not doing the promotion

    •  

      man! moorabbin hj doesnt take any promos. they didnt take the iprimus one either. or southland!

      •  

        I've used the iPrimus coupon at this store before. Quite a few times actually! Did your coupon have the iPrimus part on it? The ones I'm using didn't, so maybe try without.

        And yeah, went in tonight and the guy said this new menu hadn't started yet. Couldn't see any marketing for it either. Happily gave us the $1 tender grill burgers though, and he was actually the one to mention it :P

    I asked for the nuggets today and was very rudely told that you need vouchers yet I told her there's no mention of that on the ad.

    Then she walk off on me leaving another guy to deal with me as he said that it shows up on the register but wasn't aware on how to put it through, I ended up walking out and grabbed $2 cheeseburgers from Red Rooster.

    I went to the HJ's this afternoon in Brisbane CBD (Queen St) and they did not have the penny pincher menu on display, so I'm guessing that they too have no idea about this. I can however confirm that I got a tendergrill burger for $1 by showing it on my phone :)
