McDonald’s is set to slash the prices of two of its fan favourites tomorrow to just 99p.
The chain’s regular McMuffin will be reduced from £2.29 during the breakfast window, with hungry Brits having until 11am to get their orders in.
Once lunchtime comes around its quarter pounders with cheese – normally setting burger fans back around £3.39 – will also cost less than £1.
The budget friendly deals are part of McDonald’s weekly Monday offer and only available until the end of breakfast and midnight respectively.
It comes as f ast food fans were excited to learn they could get paid £1,000 to eat McDonald’s, Greggs and Subway.
UK-based marketplace website MaterialsMarket.com is looking to hire a team of six ‘Takeaway Testers’ to work out the best fast food options for tradespeople – and pay them for their efforts.
As well as receiving £1,000 for their participation in the month-long role, each meal that the successful applicants consume as part of the experiment will be paid for.
They will sample one of the 20 most popular meals as previously voted by tradespeople from a range of fast-food restaurants across the UK for either lunch or dinner.
Throughout the employment period, the successful candidate will be required to log a diary of how they feel after eating each meal, monitoring their levels of fullness, energy, productivity, sluggishness and overall satisfaction, immediately after consuming the meal and two and four hours afterwards.
The full analysis will be used to create a guide on the best meals for on the go for its community of professional and hobbyist builders.
Samuel Hunt co-founder of MaterialsMarket.com, said: “If you head into your local Greggs or McDonald’s early morning or at lunchtime it’s very likely you’ll see tradesmen getting their fuel for the day.
“Although fast food has negative connotations, for tradespeople those meals are convenient fuel for them! In trade jobs you’re physically put to work and as a result, burn lots of calories, so a substantial meal is a necessity to keep you full, satisfied and energised throughout the working day.
“We’re really excited to launch this experiment. As we will work with a nutritionist on the findings, we’re looking forward to sharing the best ‘fast food’ meals to eat when on the job with our community. If you wouldn’t mind getting paid to test some of the UK’s favourite fast food, please apply now!”
