McDonald's fans can secure a Big Mac and fries for £2.99 every time, thanks to a popular deal. To avail of the offer, customers must make a purchase from the fast food chain - their receipt will then contain a 12-digit code which can be entered online to complete a survey.

This survey is accessible via the McDonald's Food for Thought website.

Upon completion of the online survey, customers will receive a new five-digit code which can be used to claim their £2.99 Big Mac and fries.

The offer can also be redeemed for a Filet-o-Fish, McChicken Sandwich, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, six McNuggets or the McPlant.

Each meal comes with the option of medium fries or a side salad. The deal was previously priced at £1.99, but McDonald's increased the price to £2.99 in November last year.

Despite the price hike, Maccies fans are still making savings. Prices may vary depending on the restaurant location, but when we checked several branches online today, the lowest price for a standalone Big Mac was £4.59, reports the Mirror.

McDonald's has recently unveiled its new menu, featuring fan favourites such as the Chicken Big Mac, Biscoff McFlurry, Galaxy McFlurry and Galaxy Caramel Pie. Maccies has also introduced a new Biscoff Frappe, Cheese and Herb Melts and Quarter Pounder Deluxe.

McDonald's has recently announced significant changes to its burgers, marking the first major update in 50 years. The fast-food giant stated that beef patties will now undergo a "tighter sear" on the grill for "hotter and juicier" results.

Additionally, white onions will be grilled alongside the patties, enhancing the colour and charred flavour.

The company is also introducing fresh lettuce directly from the fridge to ensure "that extra snap, crunch, and clean taste".

In the UK, McDonald's will serve hotter beef patties, allowing the cheese to melt more effectively over the sides of the burger.

Moreover, customers can look forward to new "buttery" brioche-style buns for their burgers.
