Despite being an obvious attempt to get more fans to use the app, doing so can land you more than just a 50-cent double cheeseburger. Upon making your first purchase on the McDonald’s app, you will also receive 1,500 MyMcDonald’s Rewards points, which is enough to score you a free McChicken, hash brown, vanilla ice cream cone, or — lo and behold — yet another cheeseburger. If that’s not enough burger action for you, McDonald’s is also offering customers who use the app a free Big Mac with a $1 purchase through the month of September.
McDonald’s isn’t the only one joining in on the holiday fun. Burger King is celebrating with five back-to-back days of deals, which include a free cheeseburger with any in-app purchase on September 18, and $3 Whoppers on September 20. Meanwhile, Wendy’s fans can score a 1-cent Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger on National Cheeseburger Day by making an in-app purchase.
