Free Fries for Life? McDonald’s Celebrates the Nationwide Arrival of MyMcDonald’s Rewards with World Famous Fan Day on July 13

McDonald’s fans in Arkansas celebrated with more than 36-million orders of McDonald’s World Famous Fries® last year. Now to celebrate them and the launch of our MyMcDonald’s Rewards* loyalty program, the Golden Arches are taking over National French Fry Day on July 13 and renaming it World Famous Fan Day!

What better way to celebrate McDonald’s world-famous fans than with a FREE order of our World Famous Fries? We’re serving up rewards big and small starting on July 13 with FREE french fries through the McDonald’s App. So we’re going to do just that by serving up rewards big and small. To join the fry party, download the McDonald’s app, opt-in to MyMcDonald’s Rewards, and add the deal for medium fries to your cart.**

But we’re not stopping there because some people are more than just fans – they’re loyal for life. We’re on a mission to find and reward our devoted, die-hard fans on World Famous Fan Day – giving them a chance to prove that they’re the most loyal with the World Famous Fan contest: 

  • Sixty-six fans, one for every year of McDonald’s history, will score one million MyMcDonald’s Rewards points, helping your “McDonald’s Money” go further. 
  • One lucky World Famous Fan will walk away with free fries for LIFE

All you have to do is share WHY you’re the most loyal McDonald’s fan on Twitter on July 13, tagging @McDonalds, and including #MyMcDonaldsFanContest and your home state (e.g. #AR)***. Check out the full rundown at And the best part? We’ll have real super fans as the judges, because who better to spot our most loyal fans than World Famous Fans themselves?  

“We have the best fans in the world who deserve to unlock perks for their loyalty,” said Alycia Mason, Vice President of Digital Customer Experience, McDonald’s USA. “That is why we are so excited to bring MyMcDonald’s Rewards nationwide and celebrate with all of our guests on World Famous Fan Day. We’re eager to repay years of fandom by giving them what they love most about McDonald’s – our delicious food – for years to come.”
