There’s a national food holiday for just about every day of the year from National Chocolate Day to National Pizza Day and so much more. The McDonald’s Egg McMuffin debuted in 1971 and has been providing us with a delicious on-the-go breakfast option for almost 50 years so it’s about time we recognized the innovation with its own national holiday! This week you don’t have to get the Sunday Scaries because you’re Monday is about to get so much better! McDonald’s is declaring Monday, March 2nd National Egg McMuffin Day and to celebrate, the fast-food chain is offering FREE Egg McMuffins at participating U.S. McDonald’s restaurants nationwide.
“While we’re giving the Egg McMuffin its moment, we’re really honoring our breakfast fans who have woken up with McDonald’s breakfast for nearly 50 years. And we just thought, ‘hey, why not declare March 2 as National Egg McMuffin Day?’,” said David Tovar, Vice President of U.S. Communications. “We’re always looking for new ways to show our fans love and remind them, no matter where they might be, a great tasting and convenient breakfast is just around the corner for them at McDonald’s.”
So here’s how it works. Make sure you’ve downloaded the McDonald’s App, and on Monday, March 2, 2020, between 6 and 10:30 AM (local time) you can redeem the FREE McMuffin offer. Since the special offer is only for a limited time, you may want to set yourself a reminder so you don’t forget! It’s also worth noting that the offer is not available for McDelivery and is only valid for 1-time use.
