Mcdonalds - Spencerport Rd, Rochester, Ny Complaint - False Advertisment - $40 Worth Of Coupons From Sunday Newspaper

Review by CHOLMES00145979 on 2011-06-09
Several times I have went to this Mc Donalds and I have coupon buy 1 get 1 free, when I ordered I was told I could not get the 2nd one unless there is two people in the car. Know where on the coupon does it say 2 ppl must be in vehicle, so I had to buy the second one. My question how and why is this allowed, if the coupon reads buy 1 get 1 free. This may be this store taking things in their own hands. I frequent this restaurant couple times and only order from drive in and its not posted anywhere in store that 2 ppl have to be in car.

I have stopped going to Mcdonalds like I use to and I tell a lot of ppl about this and all say same thing it's not on the coupon or posted in the store. To me that's false advertisement.

Thank you very much.

If people go there with coupons they won't honor, then their business should be taken elsewhere. It seems like they are counting on people buying the second one anyway. I wonder what they say when there are two people in the car?

I would send a letter to McD headquarters as well as the owner. Even if the store is independently owned, surely they still must abide to certain licensing and advertising rules. It would be one thing if they flat out refused to accept coupons but second person needed....BS.
