Anyone who has wanted to eat for free at McDonald’s would be all over this hack that allows you to do exactly that.
In a video posted on Reddit on Sunday, two friends demonstrated this little-known trick on a self-serve screen.
It involves ordering 10 patty-less $1 burgers which will allow customers to get all of them for a grand total of $0.
This is because opting out on the meat from the 10 burgers discounts each meal by $1.10 which means customers get a surplus that is enough to cover the cost of the additional regular burger.
Upon checking out, the computer spits out the “no payment required” message with matching receipt and order number.
The trick has left Reddit users debating whether the hack was a slick way of eating for free or a complete waste of food.
One user wrote: “May I suggest if you go to Maccas and order a hamburger with nothing in it, you’re a bit of a tosser.”
“At the end of the day though, you only wanted the real cheeseburger. That’s a lot of effort to save $1,” wrote another user.
Other people also pointed out that it wasn’t the best idea to perform the self-service hack in full view of security cameras.
“Personally, I’d advise against trying to rip-off a multinational on its own premises under the full view of CCTV.”
“I’m all for exploiting loopholes and sticking it to the man or whatever, but I’m not a fan of wasting food. I hope you’re going to eat all those buns.”
Of course, now that the hack has gone viral it’s not exactly “little-known” anymore. Not only that, McDonald’s is now likely aware of it and should be coming up with steps to rectify this loophole. So if you do want to try out this trick, best to do it soon.
And as for homeless people taking advantage of this, it’s highly unlikely that many of them would be tech-savvy enough to learn about this hack in the first place.
