    they are always doing something as a gimmick
    always trying new menu items , then they disappear ....
    free coffee , not impressed .. but it will cost them some $$
    personally their food is terrible and not worth it ....but as I get older I tend to hate all fast food

    I often get the senior coffee.
    Or the dollar any size in some places.
    Especially while on a drive.
    And the bathrooms are great.

    I never eat the food.

    Often the gimmicks don't apply to places serving travelers.

    Most frustrating is that unlike convenience stops, workers often are not allowed to fill a refill cup. I hate throwing away a cup for no good reason.

    Thanks for posting.

    There are 2 times I eat McDonalds. If I work a Sunday then I'll pick up a sausage mcmuffin meal with black coffee. Also, if I'm just relaxing on a Sunday and take an afternoon walk I'll go to McDonalds and get a chicken wrap with a black coffee. I sit there and read or watch video podcasts. Yes, I'm turning into an old man.

    Yes, McD's growth has stagnated and is seeing competition from Taco Bell and Subway.

    $1 large iced tea at their self serve fountain, I make mine Arnold Palmer style with unsweetened tea and a splash of lemonade.

    I agree there are competitive reasons for doing it, but why all the hate? I eat there maybe once a year, but their coffee is very good and free makes it better!:poke:

    Yep ... we just got the free small coffee yesterday, here at our local McD's.
    Promotion is good until April 13, and must be ala carte from any food items.
    We ordered a couple items from the $1 menu for breakfast, along with two free coffees.

    Is it being offered at the McD's in Vegas ... downtown ???
