To celebrate the launch of its I’m Lovin’ It Live music event, McDonald's has launched a new half-price offer.

The deal lets news users of the My McDonald’s App get a 50% discount across its menu, while anyone else with the app can claim £5 off on orders of £15 or more.

To get the 50% off deal, you need to register for the McDonald's app between 00:01am today ( 26 October 2020) and 23:59pm on 1 November 2020.

That gives you 50% off one order at participating restaurants when you buy something from the "Deals" section of the app within 36 days of registering.  You also need to by at least 16 years old.

While you can only use this once, the second offer is available to use as many times as you like in a week for both new and existing customers.

The new deal is live on the MyMcDonald's app

To get £5 knocked off orders of £15 and more, you need to use the MyMcDonald's app again (make sure it's updated it too).

Once there, head to the "Deals" tab at the bottom and you should see the spend and save offer (pictured above).

The offer only works on things you find in there - so meal deals are out, but Happy Meals and restricted calorie meals are in, along with basically all the burgers, chicken, drinks, sides and McFlurry's on the menu.

Once you've added your selection to your basket, if it comes to £15 or more, then £5 is automatically removed at the checkout.

The deal works on everything ordered this way from now until 23:59pm on 1 November 2020 at participating restaurants.

The discounts are part of McDonald's new festival - I'm Lovin' It Live - offering three nights of music featuring Becky Hill, Lewis Capaldi and Stormzy available free through the app.

There's also a free McD's merch festival giveaway - including thousands of Lovin’ it Live hoodies, bucket hats, onesies and golden wellies - that you can enter here.

Michelle Graham-Clare, McDonald's VP for Food and Beverage, Product Development and Marketing, said:   “We know the new normal is tough on everyone.

"I’m Lovin’ it Live is our way of saying thank you to our people and to our customers for all their support this year.

"Hopefully our week of good things and good times offers something for everyone from families looking for fun to music fans missing the gig scene.”
