FREE World Book Day token via McDonald's Happy Meal
Exchange for 1 of 12 free books (norm £5+ each), or £1 off lots of other books12 books avail
If you happen to be taking the family to McDonald's, keep an eye out for a free World Book Day token on kids’ Happy Meal boxes until Tue 17 Mar.
While it's a labelled a '£1 token' it actually gets you one book completely free from a selection of 12 children’s titles by various authors (see list below). These are all normally £5-£10 each, but from Thu 27 Feb until Sun 29 Mar can be picked up free in exchange for the token at participating bookshops and supermarkets (find your nearest):
- Bing's Splashy Story by Harper Collins
- Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet
- Amelia Fang by Laura Ellen Anderson
- Dog Man by Dav Pilkey
- Evie In The Jungle by Matt Haig
- The Day We Met The Queen by Onjali Q. Rauf
- Kid Normal and The Loudest Library by Greg James and Chris Smith
- The Case Of The Drowned Pearl by Robin Stevens
- Alex Rider Undercover: The Classified Files by Anthony Horowitz
- My Awesome Guide To Getting Good At Stuff by Matthew Syed
- Split by Muhammad Khan
- The Kissing Booth: Road Trip by Beth Reekles
Alternatively, you can use the token to get £1 off any full-price book or audiobook costing £2.99+ in store at the same participating retailers. Simply hand over the token at the till once you’ve chosen a book – you can only use it in stores, not online. It may be worth calling ahead to check the book you want is in stock before making a special journey.
There are other ways you may be able to get your hands on these tokens (eg, nurseries and schools sometimes dish them out), but this is an easy to get one (or more) if you'd be buying a McDonald's Happy Meal anyway.

It's one token per book, so you won't be able to get more than £1 off a single book.

Get a FREE reindeer story book for kids
500,000 up for grabs – first come, first served
Fast food giant McDonald’s is giving away 500,000 FREE children’s books - The Christmas Adventures of Archie (the reindeer). To get a physical copy delivered to your door, simply fill in this online form by 1 Jan 2020 . There's no purchase required– so this is a fab festive freebie whether you’re a fan of fast food or not.
If you miss out on a physical copy of the book, McDonald's says there are unlimited free downloads of the Kindle e-book and audiobook version of the same story. E-books can be downloaded via Amazon to Kindle devices, the Kindle app or the Kindle cloud reader on your web browser. The audiobook is simply an MP3 file that can be downloaded or streamed on any compatible device, and is narrated by former footballer Peter Crouch.
The Christmas Adventures of Archie is an illustrated tale following a reindeer and his friends as they deliver seasonal wishes to Santa. We reckon it would make a decent stocking filler for any young kids who love to read.
We've more festive freebies besides, such as letters from Santa and personalised videos, including letters in Braille - the deadline for a reply in Braille is Mon 2 Dec, so go quick.
One book per household and one e-book per Amazon account.
You must be over 18 to order.
McDonald's 'free' McMuffin via app
When you buy a £1ish hot drink using its app
Hunting for a cheap brekkie option? You can pick up a free breakfast McMuffin when you buy any hot drink via the My McDonald’s app (Apple/Android) until Fri 13 Sep. Both new and existing users of the app can take advantage and it's valid at most McDonald's restaurants each day until 10.30am (11am in some cases). See 'More info' below for a list of excluded branches.
While prices do vary, most tea & coffee drinks cost £1-£1.50ish, although the cheapest we found is a single espresso, which ranges from 79p-89p depending on the branch you collect from. It looks like all McDonald's hot drinks are included in the offer, including latte, capuccino, hot chocolate and tea. You can choose from three types of McMuffin - sausage & egg, bacon & egg or egg & cheese.
To get your McMuffin, download and/or open the free McDonald's app, then register (or sign in if you already have an account). Click on the offer, choose your hot drink, your McMuffin and your nearest location, then pay for the hot drink within the app. You’ll need to pick up your order at the selected restaurant. Outside breakfast hours, the offer won't be available in the app, so look sharp and log in early!
There are heaps more McSavings over on our McDonald's hacks blog post.
It's one McMuffin per person (over-16s only), subject to availability.
