Discounts vary day by day, but some of the best offerings include 10 percent off when you spend £10 and the opportunity to buy a core menu item for only £1.49. Bargain. 

Core items are essentially any of the main menu items that aren’t seasonal – so, the Big Mac and the McCrispy both fall within the deal.
