McDonald’s may not be able to cook you a turkey and mashed potatoes this week, but the franchise is offering customers the next best thing – free food delivery with UberEats. The McDelivery holiday promotion starts this Wednesday November 27 and ends on Monday December 2, with hopes of targeting hungry customers during three major events: Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday.
In addition to free delivery, McDonald’s is hosting a contest with a Late-Night Grand Prize, which includes an entire year of Late-Night McDelivery – no charge!- and a Late-Night Weekender Bag. There will be 50 additional winners to take home the weekender bag, as well. Can you tell McDonald’s wants you to embrace the wee hours of the night?
So, what’s included in the weekender bag? If you’re a winner, expect to receive a blanket and pillow, a McDelivery meal tray, a “do not disturb” sign for your door, a drink tumbler, eyemask, earplugs, cold pack, and the “Thankful for the Massage” chair. Entering the contest is simple: Send out a Tweet summarizing a list of McDonald’s food you want to be delivered to you. Be sure to tag @McDonalds and @UberEats and use the hashtags #McDelivery and #Sweepstakes to make your entry valid. The contest closes on December 2.
This is not the first time McDonald’s has offered customers free delivery. To celebrate Halloween this year, the fast food franchise set aside a few days for customers to order through UberEats with no extra delivery charge. Be on the lookout for future holiday promotions – maybe a Christmas week giveaway, perhaps?
