To Pay At McDonalds, All You Need Is Love

Hungry?  Have a hole in your stomach that only two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun can fill? In short, do you need a Big Mac?

Well, good news: for the next twelve days – until Valentine’s Day – McDonald’s will be rolling out a new and surprising payment method that will mean that customers  can have a Big Mac (described above) even if they have no cash, card or even digital wallet on a phone.

Until the national celebration of love,  participating locations will allow certain customers chosen at random to pay with lovin’ – that includes selfies, highfives, and hugs. Mickey D’s is all about the love as long as it is appropriately expressed and sincere.

A spokeswoman explained, “We want to thank our customers for making our day and hopefully they will make someone else’s as well – that’s what Lovin’ is all about.”
