Mariah Carey has really outdone herself this holiday season. Not only she is serving up the warm and fuzzy Christmas spirit with her bop, “All I Want For Christmas” but this year she’s giving us free McDonalds too! Is she actually Santa Claus??
Carey and McDonald’s have teamed up for their own take on the traditional “12 days of Christmas,” for a promotion that serves up 12 days of free Mickey D’s. Yes, please! Forget the “turtle doves” and “swans a swimming,” Carey and her favorite fast food chain are giving us delicious Big Macs and crispy French fries instead. Yum!
“Mariah goes with the holidays like ketchup and fries, so we couldn’t think of a better partner to help us celebrate the upcoming season,” said Jennifer Healan McDonalds U.S.A. VP/Marketing, brand content, and engagement.
Here’s how it works. Beginning December 13 and running through December 24, customers who make a minimum $1 purchase via the McDonalds app will receive a free menu item daily. Free items vary from a Big Mac (available December 13), six-piece Chicken McNuggets (December 16), cheeseburger (December 17) and more.
Each free item will come in special, Mariah-style packaging to make it even that much better.
“Some of my favorite memories with my kids are our family trips to McDonald’s, and of course, each of us has our go-to order,” Mariah shared. “Mine is the Cheeseburger, and I get it with extra pickles. Bringing together some of our favorite food from McDonald’s with my all-time favorite season is a holiday wish come true.”
