Tried this out today…Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich and a soda for two bucks. w00t!
The only issue I ran into is that the app is very permission-greedy, and I don’t want McDonalds (or anyone else, for that matter) knowing precisely where I am every minute of every day.
I disabled Location Services for the app and picked the restaurant location manually, and it seemed to work, gave me an order #, etc. But since it never “saw” me arrive, it never released my order to the restaurant, and they couldn’t pull it up.
I finally enabled Location and the app said “Oh, you’re here!” and released my order. Long story short, you can disable other permissions…to keep Ronald’s red nose out of your address book, for example…but unless you enable Location Services, “no soup for you!”
Agree with you about the buttermilk chicken sandwich. I would compare it quite favorably to a Chick-fil-A sandwich. And for a dollar, I can actually afford it! After five days of the buttermilk chicken, I decided to go off book and try a QPC. It was fine, but I think tomorrow I’m back to the buttermilk chicken.
I’m in the “I don’t really give a rip what McDonald’s knows about me and my habits” if they’re going to keep feeding me lunch for a buck.
