McDonald’s Is Launching a New Rewards Program

If you love McNuggets and swear by McDonald’s fries, we’ve got some good news! The chain has a new official rewards program.

MyMcDonald’s Rewards will launch July 8 nationwide, although it’s available in select cities now via the McDonald’s app. Like other rewards programs, you get points that convert to rewards for every dollar you spend. In the MyMcDonald’s system, you’ll get 100 points per dollar.

As your points add up, you can redeem them for different menu items. Obviously, the more points you have, the better the rewards you can get.

At McDonald’s, there’s a four-tier system. Tier One (1,500 points) includes items like an ice cream cone and regular cheeseburger. Tier Two (3,000 points) is home to six-piece Chicken McNuggets and a large iced coffee.

At 4,500 points, you hit Tier Three, where you can get a large fry or Filet-O-Fish. Finally, at Tier Four (6,000 points), you can get a full-on Big Mac.

Over time, you’ll build up rewards in the McDonald’s app and then when you order, you’ll be able to redeem them for free food.

Because the program is brand-new, McDonald’s is offering a little incentive to sign up. After you sign up in the app, you get 1,500 points after your first order, which levels you up to Tier One. You can then redeem your points on your next visit for any of those items or keep saving them.

Oh, and while you’re there, don’t forget to try one of McDonald’s contenders in the chicken sandwich wars.
