To accomplish this the young man from Colchester took advantage of an offer put in place by the fast-food chain on ‘Blue Monday,’ which is supposed to be the most depressing day of the year: January 21st. The offer in question promised a free cheeseburger to anyone who created an account (or those who already had one) on the ‘My McDonald’s' app.
‘Put all McDonald’s' to a standstill’
‘I created a second account, and I got a second free cheeseburger,' said Jordan. ‘The goal was to get up to 40, and it worked again,’ he continued. And so on until 100. The young man was even persuaded that he could have ‘put all McDonald's to a standstill’ if he had decided to go even further by ordering thousands.
But rest assured: Jordan did not do this simply for the pleasure of accumulating burgers. The young man took advantage of the discovery of this trick to offer the food to homeless people, passers-by, and his family and friends. A nice gesture!
