McDonald’s Is Giving Away FREE Egg McMuffins

Fans of the prolific McDonald’s Breakfast Menu, made famous by Adam Sandler’s Big Daddy (And 50 years of history) will want to book it to the nearest pair of Golden Arches next week, as the fast food chain announced that they’ll be giving away free Egg McMuffins.

In honor of what McDonald’s is declaring “National Egg McMuffin Day,” the brand is giving out Egg McMuffins to customers Monday, March 2.

All you have to do to get one is download the McDonald’s mobile app and redeem the offer between 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. local time.

Yes, we know McDonald’s breakfast is all day now, but it looks like this deal is only being honored during the old school breakfast hours.

Burger King’s Whoppers Cost 1 Cent If You Order Them At McDonald’s

Burger King is closing out the year with a pretty savvy Whopper promotion, all while taking a quick shot at rival burger chain McDonald’s. Hey, all in good fun, right?

Fans of BK will now be able to purchase their iconic Whopper burger for a penny. Here’s the catch: you have to be inside a McDonald’s to do so.

According to the brand, users of the app will be able to unlock a 1-cent Whopper promotion if they are within 600 feet of a McDonald’s location. Once they order their burger, they can head to the nearest Burger King spot and pick it up.

Here’s how to do it in 4 steps

  1. Download the Burger King app on your phone
  2. Head to a McDonald’s
  3. Order the Whopper in-app for 1-cent
  4. Pick up your Whopper at the nearest Burger King location

Seems pretty easy.

For those hoping to get 1,000 Whoppers for $10, it seems you can only activate this deal once through the app. Still, getting a Whopper for the price of a copper coin we could easily find on the ground sounds like a pretty solid bargain.

Wouldn’t mind ordering some breakfast sandwiches at McDonald’s while we’re there anyways.

New App Tags Your Photos with ‘Zesty’ and ‘Caramel’ Aromas You Can Smell

ophone2

It’s mouth-watering enough to see a picture of someone’s delicious meal, but now you can take that experience even further, with a new device called an oPhone. Really.

Created by a Harvard alum, it uses a mobile application called oSnap, which allows you to take photos, then tag each image with terms like “zesty,” “jasmine,” or “caramel” to convey the particular scent of your experience.

Then, the message is sent to the oPhone “dock” which reads the aroma signals you’ve sent it via the app, and reproduces them in smellable form.

The tech is still in crowdfunding stages so it won’t be available for personal purchase until next year.  However, there are still public oPhone hot spots where you can test the device out for yourself.

So what do you think? Cool new technology worth paying attention to, or just the latest fad?
