Free Quarter Pounder with Cheese

On our way to dinner tonight my daughter hands us a coupon for a buy one get one free quarter pounder with cheese from McDonalds. My wife looks at it and I glance over. She reads that it expired March 30th.........1979, WHAT? Yes, it expired 30 years ago.

My son is now using a wallet of mine from when I was 13 years old, do the math. Guess I had left a few coupons in it, one being from a specific McDonalds in St. Louis on Hampton Avenue. It is in good condition and in bright color. The burger really does look like one would right now.

We wondered what someone from McDonalds would do if we took it in and they looked that it expired 30 years ago. It wouldn't be worth getting rid of at this point.

Mark, I don't think it is worth the free burger at this time to give up the coupon. I'm not a QP guy anyway.

That is the coolest thing I've read all week. The best thing is that you were using coupons when you were 13 years old! Greatness.
