Who wants free burgers?
A hack that lets McDonald’s customers eat for free in Australia seems to have been revealed in a viral video. If it’s true, it’s not likely to work in the U.S. since the burger chain’s discounts vary by location.
Two friends demonstrated the trick in a two-minute video posted to YouTube on Sunday that has garnered 1.1 million views. They appear to have duped the self-service kiosk into giving them 11 free burgers — or 10 meatless sandwiches and one traditional burger.
USA TODAY reached out to McDonald’s to inquire about the authenticity of the free burger loophole. When the burger chain responds or issues a statement, we will update the story.
In the video, the friends walk viewers through how they scored the extremely discounted menu items.
