FAST FOOD APPS

got mcdonalds breakfast for the first time in a while and the app took my order from $11.13 to $1.59
mcgriddle $5.50 --> daily deal any sandwich for 50 cents
hash browns $2.50 --> extra hash brown app trick for 50 cents x2
and my friend says i could have also used the survey code for another free sandwich on this order, but you have to go inside and talk to a human for that

seems a little insane to me to get almost 85% off
why are they forcing us to use the app?

I dont eat fast food so I have no idea the economy of burgers and fries or Whatever but I dont understand the inventive of McDonalds to give you such low prices just because you use an app. Is it because it makes the whole of theboperstinal costs less because they can prep your food ahead of time or something?

                Not really. I break laws all the time. I don't like authority much. I just don't do things that land me in jail. Maybe they'll come for me tho. Who knows. My white gf has family in a lovely part of Mexico, I'll just frick off over there if the US crumbles or somewhere else. Lol. Idc. I don't have kids, so I'm not much invested in the country. Everyone has guns. My state would turn into a war zone if they start going after people like you're saying, so even if I lived off the grid, I'd still be in a war zone.

                Way to dodge the question. Are they assembling a deep fake profile on me so they can frame me for a presidential assisination, Mr. Gribble?

                It's always hyperbole. Couldn't possibly be that we're frogs in boiling water slowly having privacy and rights eroded away.
                It's about your health insurance denying you a claim because you got sick visiting a family member during lockdown. Or your car driving itself back to the dealer because you're disputing a parking ticket. Or a littering fine being deducted automatically from your paycheck because you dropped a receipt on the way out of a restaurant.

                I'm not fine with those either, but I'm 30 now. I don't have the time nor do I give a shit to worry about all these fanciful what ifs anymore. If it happens, it happens. I have options to leave. I plan contigency crap, if anything. You really think all your planning and future predicting about the worst erosion of society and finances and personal freedom and what not are going to amount to much if the shit really hits the fan?

                I don't think the world is going to turn into LGBTQ commie Demolition Man or w.e you predict. Even in that dumb movie, there was a perfectly fine underground, lol. People will always rebel and shit comes and goes like the tides. If it gets bad, it'll get better. Nothing lasts forever. I hope, really hope, you have children that you're worried about or something.

                McDolan's app is definitely the most spyware heavy one out of all the fast food apps. I have GrapheneOS which locks down the phone from leaking/feeding the global spy program through Google and everyone else and everyone else's apps work just fine when pushed through an anonymizing proxy but McDicks freaks out and refuses to work unless I whitelist the app to give it my legit info and turn Location data on and all that bullshit.

                You sir, are sensible and I appreciate your dedication and knowledge. These are the bits I'm too dumb and lazy to figure out, but enjoy being made aware of. Why do you think the app is so? You think its nefarious or just xtra tech bs they paid some butthole to go overboard with? You think they're digging deep and selling data or w.e at a premium? Getting more than others? If so.. why the frick is their food so pricey still?!

                moron. Almost all personal auto policies require you to list all drivers that are in your household, because it's assumed that they might drive the car at some point (oh guess what they did lol). There's usually an exclusion form (depending on the state) that you can sign for cases like this, which usually requires you to show that they're insured with another carrier.

      Fast food companies want people to use their apps because...
      1. they can use app metrics (downloads, app opens, etc.) to show investors
      2. they can treat the users like test subjects and see how they react to promotions, price increases / decreases, etc.

    it's called price discrimination
    same reason there are things like student or senior discount
    they maximize profit by charging each market segment the most they are willing to pay
    just proves that the slop costs so little to actually make that it's still profitable with all the discounts

    slop apps should be illegal imo. and also volume discounts on fries and nuggies, because it encourages people to overeat

      It's profitable with the discounts for the current level of app subscription.
      If 100% of customers signed up for the app and got those discounts it might not be profitable anymore. I imagine nobody would ever forecast 100% adoption of that app so it's likely they wouldn't have planned to be in a good place with costs in the event that effectively impossible level of membership happened.

    As an alternative to the data mining theory, I personally think it'd make more sense if they were simply doing that to maximize how much they can charge customers who don't care about a few dollars vs. minimizing loss of business from the customers who care a lot about a few dollars.
    By hiding the cheaper prices behind an app you have to care more to get to them so the people who need the money or who are just penny pinchers regardless will stay happy and the ones who don't care so much will contribute the extra revenue McDonald's needs to continue churning out good quarterly earnings calls.

    It's because Wall Street israelites are obsessed with being "Tech Companies" so every company needs an APP to show how tech focused they are and totally creating value and driving innovation with their pajeet coded slop. It's just all a marketing move to get Wall Street excited. They don't care at all about the people buying burgers, they only care about stock holder's interests.

      The discussion's about the discounts more than the app itself. You can have an app without dropping prices by a lot as bait to use it.
      Though the answer's already been posted. It's just a way to let cost conscious people paying less instead of abandoning McDonald's while still getting the higher prices paid by the customers who don't care.

        I'm answering why WcDonalds prefers burger buyers to use the app. To show they're a "tech" focused company. They can do the same market segmentation with paper coupons which is how it was done for decades. The app is to appear modern and "Tech" driven and I'm sure they also sprinkle in "AI" and "Data Lake" to their investor materials.

        What would the point of a goyslop app be if it wasn't for discounts? Do you really think there are enough Super Fans of GoyDonalds that would download a app without discounts?

      they changed the app a bit but the key is getting Extra Hashbrown on the app by having the cashier add it to your order, then save it as your favorite so you can reorder

      cashiers cant edit your order if you do it on the app anymore (changed it a year or two ago) so use an in-restaurant deal or give them your app code/QR code. so the first time i did it i had to order a full combo then ask for an extra hashbrown. 50/50 chance theyll add Extra Hashbrown over just the normal hashbrown. this also works with large waters and big mac sauce

    Maybe the app can adjust discounts in real-time if your restaurant has below average traffic or a batch of hash browns has to be tossed tomorrow. The restaurant has to pay rent and labor anyways, might as well bring in some customers. One regular priced drink or desert and the order might jump to profitability.
