Sometimes the best part of a fast food menu is the dollar menu. It's quick. It's cheap. It hits the spot. But sometimes you're like, "I've got a deluxe burger appetite, but a dollar menu budget." Hey, we've all been there. It's the last day before payday, and the fridge is looking as bare as your wallet. Can't have a dinner out of half a jar of minced garlic, sandwich stacker dill pickle slices, and some possibly expired milk. Luckily McDonald's has your back, and  your stomach, for the next two and a half months.

All you have to do is download the McDonald's app. It's that easy. Download the app, sign in, click "View Deals," and it'll show you the $1 sandwich deal. Take that in, the clerk and/or kiosk will scan the bar code. It does exclude their Signature Crafted Recipe Sandwiches and the Double Quarter Pounder With Cheese. But it's game on for all other sandwiches.

You can use the app deal once per day now through September 30th. So you're golden, Pony Boy. I even used it for lunch to see how it worked. Got a Big Mac for just a $1, so I splurged on an apple pie for dessert. It was super easy to use. I highly recommend this deal if you find yourself eating at the Golden Arches often.

And beyond just this deal, it's just a handy app to have. I'm seeing deals on coffee, deals on fries, $3 off any purchase of $10 or more. So many great deals. And since you're already downloading apps, might as well download the KICK-FM app while you're at it. Hashtag shameless plug.
