McDonald’s has revealed it’s set to make a major change affecting all UK restaurants this week.

From Wednesday, July 20, the fast food chain will be launching a new loyalty scheme for customers.

The launch will give customers the opportunity to earn points when buying items from the McDonald’s menu.

MyMcDonald’s Rewards will allow customers to earn 100 points for every £1 spent and points can be redeemed on menu items or they can be donated to charities including Children in Need, FareShare and Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Customers who opt-in to MyMcDonald’s Rewards and order and pay through the McDonald’s App will automatically earn points on their order – this includes McDelivery when ordered via the app.

When ordering at Drive-Thru, Kiosk or Counter, customers can get a one-time code at the start of their order to earn points which is available in the ‘code’ section of the app.

McCafe stamps will also be added to the app. Any free drinks customers have earned but haven’t redeemed will be in the Offers & Rewards section of the app and any existing stamps will be converted to 300 points when customers opt into the rewards scheme.

As it launches, customers will be able to redeem double points on any McCafe purchase.
