Did you see the McDonalds commercial during the Super Bowl? The one where the customer made an order and the McDonalds employee told them that if they said what they loved about their child (who was standing right there beside them in the store) they would get their order for free?!?! Or give someone a hug. Or call your mom. Or even giving the cashier a fist bump. That's right from now until February 14th between the hours of 6 am and 6 pm customers will be chosen at random to "pay with lovin'" for their order.
Pay with Lovin' is a unique way for McDonalds to thank their customers and make their day. A little kindness goes a long way and a free cup of coffee or hamburger is a great motivation to pay it forward to someone else.
Ironically, I was just in the McDonalds Drive Thur Line today and as any mom knows the drive thru is the way to go with two little kids. I placed my order and the total came to x number dollars and eleven cents. I didn't have time to count change so I handed the cashier a bill large enough to cover the order and still get change back. And the cashier said, "I've got 11 cents." It was a simple gesture, but it made my day. And, while it probably wasn't necessarily a part of the Pay with lovin' campaign, it made me love my neighborhood McDonalds all the more.
