Here's how to get them: Download the McDonald's app, and go to the Deals section. If you're ordering on a Friday, you'll see a deal for free fries with any purchase of $1 or more. So just add whatever else you want that costs at least $1, add the deal, and you'll get a free medium fries.

If it's not a Friday, the free fries deal won't be there, but depending on the deals your local McD's restaurant offers, you might also see an available deal for $1.29 for any size fries. That deal is available every day at my restaurant, with a limitation of one time per customer per day, and you don't have to buy anything else. It's a pretty great deal, considering that a large fries now costs more than $4 where I live!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: if you're ordering at McDonald's and you're not using the app, you're doing it wrong. There's almost always a way to save money in the app, and with inflation being what it is, every dollar counts!

So, to sum up: McDonald's has free fries on Fridays for the rest of the year with a $1 purchase, and you might find other REALLY good deals on fries in the app as well. This has been a public service announcement from a McDonald's fry aficionado. Thank you and goodnight.
