Penny Pincher: April 29 or May 15- Eat Chicken Free at McD’s!

McDonald’s now has a chicken sandwich that is very comparable to Chick-Fil-A! Since we do not have Chick-Fil-A anywhere near us, we were extremely anxious to try out this new Southern-Style Chicken Sandwich. We went through Wheaton’s drive-thru yesterday after church, ordered our sandwiches, then noticed an unbelievable sign on the window that said:

“Tuesday, April 29th: Buy a sweet tea for $1 and get a Southern Style Chicken Sandwich FREE!”

The promotion runs all day Tuesday. You can get the breakfast biscuit, too, which is awesome for me since I wanted to try that next!

Oh…and our review of the sandwich? Not quite Chick-Fil-A, but definitely close! It’s at least a substitute until we live by one someday.

So, go get your (almost) free sandwich tomorrow for breakfast, lunch or dinner! :) I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

UPDATE: Just found some websites that said McD’s will be offering this May 15. Maybe the April 29 date is for Chicago area only since we are the test-market corporate area.

  1. Do you mean Wheaton as in Wheaton, Illinois? I am in Carol Stream! Who knew I’d had you on my food blog list for this long and had no idea we lived so close! Also, I am definitely getting a free sandwich tomorrow, so thanks for the heads-up! =)

  2. I wonder if this promotion is in L.A too??? Sometimes they don’t have them nationally.

  3. Good question.. Not sure it’s a national promotion or not. I know it’s at least the Chicago area and not just Wheaton.

    Yes, Jennie, I’m in Wheaton, IL. That’s awesome to hear that someone so close is reading my blog! We should have lunch sometime. :)

  4. Arby’s just came out with a southern style chicken sandwich too. Thanks for the info.

  5. We don’t have Chik-Fil-A here either and I always wondered what all the fuss was about. Hopefully this will bring be one step closer =)

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. By the way, I just checked – it is on 5/15

    Enjoy! =)

  7. I got the breakfast sandwich this morning… yum! But, yeah, those of you who are not in the Chicago area, you will need to wait for this deal until May 15. But, something to look forward to, right? :)
