McDonald’s gives school staff a free breakfast

Sharing is caring!

A shiny, red apple isn’t the only way to thank teachers. (And there certainly are many reasons to thank educators, including their hard work and dedication in making a difference in the lives of young people every day – especially during these trying times).

Teachers won’t need to do any math on this special deal from McDonald’s. It’s totally FREE … and full of savings and gratitude.

From Oct. 11 to 15, all educators – including teachers, administrators and school staff – can get a FREE “Thank You” breakfast at the popular fast-food restaurant. All they need to do: Show a valid work identification.

Served in a classic Happy Meal box, the Thank You Meal includes an entree breakfast sandwich, hash browns and beverage.

Limit one per person, per day. That means qualifying customers can enjoy the complimentary breakfast all week long. 

Choose from the following breakfast sandwiches:

Egg McMuffin

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit

Sausage Biscuit

As for the beverage, choose from either a medium McCafé coffee (hot or iced) or medium soft drink. (Menu options may vary be location.) 

The offer is only valid during breakfast hours at participating locations — usually from 5 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Breakfast hours vary by location, so check first.
