$1 McDonald's Any Size Fries

Rumor: McDonald's restaurants are offering $1 Any Size Fries between May 18 and 31.

Claim:   McDonald’s restaurants are offering $1 Any Size Fries between May 18 and 31.


Example:   [Collected via e-mail, May 2015]

Is this real?


Origins:   The ubiquitous McDonald’s chain of fast food restaurants is known for their
“$1 Any Size Soft Drink or Coffee” deals, so the hearts of Mickey D’s french fry lovers were momentarily lifted in May 2015 when an image was circulated online showing a similar promotion offering $1 Any Size Fries at McDonald’s between May 18 and 31.

Alas, although some McDonald’s outlets are offering such a deal, it’s not a nationwide promotion. It’s an offering undertaken by select restaurants at a local level, with McDonald’s noting that “Price and promotions are often determined by individual restaurants and local McDonald’s markets.”

Most Snopes assignments begin when readers ask us, “Is this true?” Those tips launch our fact-checkers on sprints across a vast range of political, scientific, legal, historical, and visual information. We investigate as thoroughly and quickly as possible and relay what we learn. Then another question arrives, and the race starts again.

We do this work every day at no cost to you, but it is far from free to produce, and we cannot afford to slow down. To ensure Snopes endures — and grows to serve more readers — we need a different kind of tip: We need your financial support.

Support Snopes so we continue to pursue the facts — for you and anyone searching for answers.
