In celebration of this summer’s limited time offering of select McDonald’s menu favorites from around the world, the chain is featuring an exchange of global proportions. It’s taking any amount of foreign currency customers may have in exchange for one of the items from the new Worldwide Favorites menu.
Have an extra Euro laying around? Found a Japanese Yen in that old travel fanny pack? Wondering what to do with that Rupee from last summer’s trip to India? The promotion will take place Thursday, June 6 between 2—5 p.m. local time. Guests can exchange one piece of foreign currency for any one Worldwide Favorites menu item at McDonald’s International Currency Exchange:
“As a global restaurant leader, we’re excited to bring fan-favorites from abroad to the U.S. this summer with our new Worldwide Favorites menu,” says McDonald’s Director of Communications, Molly McKenna. “To welcome these new flavors, we created the McDonald’s International Currency Exchange event. This unique event provides our customers with an international experience that only a brand with our global scale could create, all without having to hop on a plane.”
The Worldwide Favorites menu items are just one of the latest menu offerings McDonald’s has recently brought to U.S. customers. From adding bacon to the Big Mac, Quarter Pounder and World Famous Fries to introducing a sweet surprise with Donut Sticks earlier this year.
While rotating favorites from around the world are on the menu at McDonald’s global headquarters restaurant in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, this marks the first time Worldwide Favorites are featured on U.S. menus nationwide at participating restaurants.
