To mark the launch of its Worldwide Favorites Menu in the U.S., McDonald’s restaurants will accept foreign currency from customers on Thursday from 2-5 p.m. local time.
The deal is good only for the four items on that new menu at participating restaurants and is limited to one piece of foreign cash per customer.
The Worldwide Favorites Menu – the Stroopwafel McFlurry from the Netherlands, the Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger from Spain, the Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich from Canada and the Cheesy Bacon Fries Australia – launches nationwide on Wednesday.
Owner-operators of each individual McDonald’s has full discretion over what to do with the foreign currency when the McDonald’s International Currency Exchange promo is over, according to the company.
“Have an extra Euro laying around? Found a Japanese Yen in that old travel fanny pack? Wondering what to do with that Rupee from last summer’s trip to India? Start rummaging under those couch cushions, take that spare foreign currency you have, and head around the corner to your nearest participating McDonald’s,” McDonald’s said in a statement.
As you go hunting for that long-lost krona, real or pound, here’s what any of that cash will buy:
- Stroopwafel McFlurry: Vanilla soft serve with a caramel swirl and Dutch Daelmans Stroopwafel caramel waffle cookie pieces.
- Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger: A quarter pound of fresh beef with thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon, smoky McBacon Sauce, gouda and onions on a toasted sesame seed bun.
- Tomato Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich: Grilled or crispy white meat chicken, tomato and herb sauce, mozzarella, onions, lettuce and Roma tomatoes on a toasted artisan roll.
- Cheesy Bacon Fries: Fries topped with cheddar cheese sauce and chopped Applewood smoked bacon.
