McDonalds: Fradulent Coupon Alert

There are some lovely coupons floating around right now for “1 FREE McDonald’s Value Meal”.  It says on the coupon “offer ends 1/21/2015″.

These are fraudulent coupons.

There are a few quick ways to tell this is a fake:

1.  The expiration date is WAY too far in the future.

2.  It is a .pdf.  Not all .pdf coupons are fake but most of them are.  If it is a .pdf it means you can print as many as you want and the company isn’t keeping track of them.  The only company I know who consistently does their coupons this way is 3M.

3.  It came from a random website.  If McDonalds is going to offer coupons they will most likely do it through, Red Plum, the McDonalds Facebook page or the McDonalds website.  Those would be the places to find coupons.

I hope this helps you keep an eye out for fradulent coupons!
