There’s nothing worse than feeling “hangry” in a lecture but McDonald’s is here to make sure all students get to learn on a full stomach.

Whether you’re heading into your first academic year or are returning to Uni after the summer hols, don’t miss out on the McDonald’s student deal which offers a free item with the purchase of any Extra Value or Wrap Meal.

You can bag yourself a free Cheeseburger, Mayo Chicken or McFlurry® Original – by ordering in one of three ways!

1.    In person at a McDonald’s restaurant front counter

Keep things old school and personal at the front counter. When you place your order for an Extra Value or Wrap Meal, simply show a valid student card and pick your free item there and then.

2.    Via the self-order kiosk in a McDonald’s restaurant

Here you’ll need to make sure you have a valid account with Student Beans.

Log in to your Student Beans account (via the app) and click McDonald’s instore offer. You’ll receive an ID & QR code to scan at the self-order kiosk in the restaurant. Select your free item and the discount will be applied automatically.

3.    Order McDelivery My McDonald’s app

The student deal is now available for the first time via McDelivery through the My McDonald’s app – meaning you can get free food direct to your location whether you’re at home, socialising or studying.

First up, make sure you have the My McDonald’s app on your phone.

Log into Student Beans and click McDonald’s online offer. You’ll then paste that code into your My McDonald’s app (Go to the More tab, Click on Scan Vouchers & Click on ‘tap here to manually enter code) to redeem the free item offer.

With free Wi-Fi and most restaurants offering charging stations to keep your phone topped up, the only question is whether to share the free menu item or keep it to yourself. Another great reason to meet up with old or new friends (looking at you Freshers) and dine out at your local McDonald’s restaurant.

Money saving experts can also scoop a free coffee at McDonald’s. Use the My McDonald’s app to collect five McCafé loyalty stamps and your next hot drink is FREE.
