If you’re a living and breathing human being, then there’s an excellent chance you’ve heard of McDonald’s. Actually, there’s a great chance you’ve eaten there more than once. If you happen to be someone who eats there on a somewhat regular basis, then the following information might be of interest to you. But before we get to what McDonald’s has to offer as far as promotions, rewards programs, and coupons go, let’s first briefly go over who they are. You might be thinking it’s a good idea to skip the following ‘who they are’ section for McDonald’s, but a little extra information can only make you more informed.
McDonald’s began as the first hamburger stand ever to hit the streets of Chicago. Several decades later, it’s not just a publicly traded company, but the most eaten at restaurant in the world. There are currently more than 32,000 locations in 117 countries. McDonald’s also serves over 60 million people per day. So, when you hear someone say the rest of the world dislikes America, at least you can remind yourself that without us they wouldn’t have McDonald’s. Look at Russia, for example. Our former arch rival from the Cold War has now had McDonald’s restaurants for over 20 years. This actually goes a lot further than former nuclear tension.
Let’s think about the current health reputations for each country. While Americans are known for being fat and in poor health, Russians are known for being fit and in good health, for the most part. The catch is that they both have a large portion of their populations eating at McDonald’s. This leads us to an important point, which is that McDonald’s gets a bad rap as far as unhealthy food is concerned. Are there greasy food options? Of course. If someone abuses them, they’re going to have to pay the consequences. But McDonald’s also has a ton of healthy food options, and even if you’re to eat their greasy food in moderation, there shouldn’t be any ill health effects.

McDonald’s is best known for their Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, Chicken McNuggets, French Fries, and for breakfast – the Egg McMuffin. There are a few ways to get discounts on these and other McDonald’s items. That said, while McDonald’s might be an international company, it’s far from the easiest place to get extra savings. Part of this might be because their menu is already cheap enough. But if you’re looking for extra savings, there are a few options available.
