People across the country are heading back to restaurants in the wake of the Government’s Eat Out To Help Out scheme, giving discounts on meals eaten out in August.
Customers can take advantage of 50 per cent off – up to £10 a head – at participating venues on Mondays-Wednesdays this month, in a bid to kickstart the economy following coronavirus lockdown.]
And McDonald’s is among those offering discounts to their diners – but is breakfast also included in the deal?
Here’s what you need to know…
Is McDonald’s breakfast included in Eat Out To Help Out?
McDonald’s Eat Out To Help Out discounts cover every item on the menu – so that means that breakfast is included in the deal too.
Currently McDonald’s is serving a reduced breakfast menu – with wraps, bagels and porridge currently unavailable – as the chain continues to get back to normal, following the closure of its restaurants in March as the country went into lockdown.
However, customers taking advantage of Eat Out To Help Out can enjoy 50 per cent off breakfast meals from Mondays-Wednesdays – and there is no limit on how many times the discount can be used.
You can find a list of branches taking part in the scheme at McDonald’s official website, as well as search for your nearest participating restaurants using the postcode checker on the Government’s website.
The offer only applies to meals eaten in, however, as opposed to takeaway and delivery.
What are the reduced prices on McDonald’s breakfast menu?
The scheme means that a breakfast meal which would normally cost £3.99 will now set you back just £1.75.
A sausage and egg McMuffin meal is also now £1.75, down from £3.49, while a sausage and egg McMuffin on its own is £1.10, instead of the usual £2.19.
Breakfasters can also take advantage of knockdown prices on drinks, with a regular black coffee now just 50p instead of £1.39, tea just 49p instead of £1.09, a cappuccino or flat white 74p instead of £1.79, a single espresso just 39p, or a double espresso 49p (down from 99p).
