McDonald's is giving away free items to students for freshers - here's how to claim

There’s nothing worse than your tummy rumbling in a lecture, so 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 holidays, 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.

Hoping for some grub to cure the dreaded freshers flu? Students can bag themselves a free Cheeseburger, Mayo Chicken or McFlurry® Original by ordering in one of these three ways.

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

You can also claim your freebie by heading to 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 into your Student Beans account (via the app) and click McDonald’s in store offer.

You’ll then receive an ID & QR code to scan at the self-order kiosk in the restaurant. Lastly, select your free item and the discount will be applied automatically.

Best of all? The student deal is also available for the first time via McDelivery through the My McDonald’s app – meaning you can get free food directly 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 all 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. All you need to do is use the My McDonald’s app to collect five McCafé loyalty stamps and your next hot drink is free – how good is that?

To find your nearest McDonald’s, we’ve added a handy locator tool here for ease.
