Still remember last month there’s a Mid Month Special BUY 1 FREE 1 a la carte Chicken McNuggets (6pcs) by McDonald’s? Did you manage to redeem the Buy 1 FREE 1 Chicken McNuggets? I didn’t manage to redeem the BUY 1 FREE 1 Chicken McNuggets and I knew a lot of you also couldn’t redeem it.

McDonald's BUY 1 FREE 1 Chicken McNuggets

Why? This is because the print out coupon / voucher is too small (must be larger than 9cm * 21cm) or not according to the stated size in the vouchers. My colleague printed out the vouchers but didn’t notice the fine print in the T&C. Don’t you think 9cm * 21cm is just too big for a voucher? (After claim then the voucher will be thrown away and addon to the waste?)

Wrong measurement for McDonald's BUY 1 FREE 1 Chicken McNuggets Promotion
Wrong voucher size printed. Only difference of 1cm and 0.3cm?

Correct measurement for McDonald's BUY 1 FREE 1 Chicken McNuggets Promotion
Correct voucher size. (9cm * 21cm)

McDonald's BUY 1 FREE 1 Chicken McNuggets Promotion Gimmick
Do you know that they actually have a ruler at the counter just to measure the coupon? OMG!

The question is WHY McDonald’s want to do such promotion and need you to print such a big size vouchers whereby 1 A4 paper can only print 1 vouchers vs 1 A4 paper could actually print 4 vouchers? This is not environmentally friendly right? Or actually the promotion is just a gimmick and McDonald’s know that a lot people out there will not read the T&C and want to limit to the Buy 1 Free 1 promotion?

Next time do read the T&C clearly and hope that all the other company which is running promotion be more considerate and don’t waste paper. I suggest that we could just show the coupon in our smartphone instead of printout that would be easier and will save a lot more of the resources don’t you think so? Do our part and be more environmentally friendly so that our next generation will still be able to enjoy what they are supposed to.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
