Thrillist Today is National French Fry Day. It’s swell to honor one of the top fast food side orders, but the day isn’t doing its work unless some of the best fast food French fries are part of the celebration. Checkers and Rally’s is going to part of the fun, and so is McDonald’s.
McDonald’s has announced that you’re getting a totally free medium order of French fries to celebrate the day. You don’t have to buy anything at all to get the free fries. Though, you’re only getting one free order per person. Sorry to crush your plans of eating nothing but free fries all day. (Though, you could probably get pretty close if you restaurant-hopped and gave over your entire day to the enterprise.)
To get those salty, delicious fries, you’ll have to download the McDonald’s mobile app. Inside the app, you’ll be able to redeem the offer of free sliced potatoes through the Mobile Order and Pay function or by scanning a QR code at the drive-thru, counter, or kiosk at select locations.
