McDonalds Pay With Loving

McDonald’s in the USA is running “Pay With Loving”, a promotional campaign launched during the 2015 Super Bowl. Following the launch of McDonald’s “Pay with Lovin’” Super Bowl commercial, the company is bringing the idea to life at participating restaurants across the U.S. Customers who enter participating McDonald’s restaurants at randomized, predetermined times between Monday, Feb. 2 and Saturday, Feb. 14 each day will be selected at random to participate. For instance, breakfast might cost a friendly fist bump to the crew member on duty, lunch could be paid for with a call to a loved one and dinner could go for a compliment. McDonald’s is also encouraging people to share their Lovin’ experiences and join the conversation by following @McDonalds or by visiting McDonalds has posted the conditions by which they present the option of a Pay With Loving meal online at Inevitably, responses have been mixed. Being asked to call one’s mother or dance in public has apparently been anxiety-laden for some customers.
