McDonald's expanding McPick 2 menu items

The McPick 2 promotion is coming back, and just like ordering a McDonald's burger, it's about to become even more customizable.

Starting May 24, McDonald's will expand its McPick 2 menu items to allow regional favorites as a part of the promotion.

McPick 2 is a mix and match menu that allows customers to choose two food items for $5.

The McPick 2 promotion was launched early in 2016, beginning as a 2 items for $2 deal in an effort to satisfy customer demands since the Dollar Menu was discontinued.

Check out these other menu hacks to save big at McDonald's and other fast food joints:

McDonald's is unveiling a major menu change that will affect people based on location

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order two four-piece nuggets instead of one six-piece. It’s cheaper, you get more nuggets and you get more sauces. Score.

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order a McDouble without the ketchup and mustard but with lettuce and Big Mac sauce. You'll pay for the Big Mac taste for the price of a McDouble.

Restaurant: Chipotle

Hack: Order half of one protein and half of another kind (like chicken and steak). You’ll almost always get more than half of each and end up with up to 1.5x the protein in your burrito or bowl for the price of a normal portion.

Restaurant: Krispy Kreme

Hack: Fill out the survey on the bottom of your receipt for a free doughnut with the purchase of one. Hypothetically if you kept doing this, you could win unlimited free doughnuts. Not advised.

Restaurant: Arby’s

Hack: Order two junior roast beef sandwiches instead of one regular classic. You'll end up with more meat for a lower price.

Restaurant: Jamba Juice

Hack: Substitute any ingredient in any smoothie for the same price. If you’re craving a smoothie with non-fat yogurt instead of mango, or extra strawberries instead of blueberries, customize it to your liking without any extra charge. It will save you more than being charged for creating your own smoothie from scratch.

Restaurant: Jack in the Box

Hack: Order two Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers and combine them into one for a much cheaper version of a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger.

Restaurant: McDonald’s

Hack: Order a sausage McMuffin off of the dollar menu but ask for the sausage to be substituted with egg—an egg McMuffin for a dollar.

Restaurant: Any pizza place

Hack: When you call to order delivery, ask if there were any orders that weren’t delivered—the pizza place will often give you those orders for a discounted price (perfect if cold pizza is your thing.)

Restaurant: Subway

Hack: Order a Double Steak and Cheese Sub instead of the Philly Cheese Steak Sub—you’ll get the same sandwich at a normal foot-long price.

The new promotion is set to include three classic menu items and then three items that will vary from region tor region, as local operators will have the chance to choose which items they'll sell based on what performs well in their areas.

The three classic items that will be rolled out with the updated version of the menu are the Big Mac, 10-piece Chicken McNuggets and the Filet-O-Fish, all characteristic McDonald's items that have been customer favorites for years.

The new regionally customized version of the promotion is a nod from the company towards focusing on local-first, something the fast food giant has been experimenting with through special menu items in select locations.​
