Special coupons for McDonald's are available from websites such as RetailMeNot, Offers.com and Techbargains.com. The sites all have similar formats and provide information about which McDonald's specials the coupons cover, the details about the offer, and how to obtain the coupons.
As of 2015, McDonald's is test marketing a new app called "McD" that plans to offer consumers with smartphones the opportunity for special deals. These deals are available as mobile-only offers and are similar to receiving fliers in the mail or circulars from a supermarket or grocery store. McDonald's does accept competitor's coupons such as Burger King and Wendy's. Not all McDonald's stores participate in this program, so customers should check the store they plan to visit to confirm which coupons are accepted.
