Thanks for the heads up about the ink!

Thanks for the warning, Sara!! I changed the color to Greyscale and made it 50% the original size.

While I didn't print and use this coupon, we went through the drive-thru today. When they gave me my change back they handed out a business size card coupon for a free $1 menu item with purchase of one of these.

OMGosh. The frappes are my one true "splurge". I usually do my major shopping on the weekends so my husband can keep our son at home (my getaway). Each week on my way home I stop and grab a Mocha Frappe and my eyes literally roll back in my head with each sip. YUM !!!

Once though, a few weeks back, their machine was messed up. I was broken hearted. I even drove to the next town to get one...rofl. AND they didn't even offer the frappes at their location. HOW RUDE!! Needless to say, I ended up driving home with a shriveled up, good for nothin' chocolate milkshake. Oh well...I made up for it the following week teehehee!

Awesome Q!! They are heavenly!
P.S. Cheaper than D.D. and just as GOOD!

I probably spent that printing out thew darn thing. A whole page,,, REALLY?


11 Nicole July 14, 2010 at 9:49 am

I can't access the Q. I click on it and it take me to a blank page. Anybody else having this issue?


12 Tara Kuczykowski July 14, 2010 at 10:11 am

I've heard that some people are having trouble printing in Firefox. It worked fine for me, but if you're having trouble, I'd recommend trying Internet Explorer or vice versa.


13 mamacoups July 14, 2010 at 11:19 am

thanks for the heads up about the ink, i will not be printing it since its an ink guzzler.


14 judy workman July 14, 2010 at 12:47 pm

It gave me a blank page and at the top it says promotion. I clicked on that and sat back and enjoyed the ride. Took a while, then since I read the above messages (thanks re: ink) I quickly changed to black and white.


15 Em July 14, 2010 at 2:10 pm

Just set your printer to “fast draft” and “black ink only”. It’ll save much more ink this way.


16 Mama Bear July 14, 2010 at 4:13 pm

I can't get it to work with Safari. :(


17 melissa July 14, 2010 at 4:16 pm

coupon is not working for me, the page is just blank. anyone else have this problem?


18 melissa July 14, 2010 at 4:17 pm

19 melissa July 14, 2010 at 4:17 pm

just saw previous posts, will try their ideas


20 Ann E. July 14, 2010 at 4:50 pm

How much are the fruit smoothies? I may print this one (in grayscale) for a treat for the kids.


21 Josh July 14, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Why do they make coupons like this? Coupons are for people who want to save money by being frugal -- they're not for people who are wasteful and love to spend lots on ink. Stupid if you ask me.


22 Joy July 15, 2010 at 4:02 pm

Thankfully I was printing it in black & white...but I took it to McD at lunch today and they didn't know how to use it. The cashier and the shift manager were both very nice about it but I ended up taking it back and getting a large tea instead. :-( They didn't seem to have a "button" for this coupon on their less than 2 months old, state of the art, touchscreen! The berry smoothie was $2.49 I think, so I didn't spend it.


23 judy workman July 15, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Went to 2 McDonalds tonight just for a treat for myself. First, the machine was broken, second, refused to accept the coupon. I will try more McDonalds later in different directions. Hope no one else has the problem.
They are 2.79 I think


24 Maria S. July 16, 2010 at 4:46 am

BIG "BOOOOOOO" to McDonalds for having the most ink-wasting coupon I have ever seen. OMG! It took what little color ink I had left and printed an entire page so full of ink that the paper was limp from the ink weight.
I could put it in the blender and make a smoothie as red as the red berry one they have pictured.

Thank you for the coupon post :)


25 judy workman July 16, 2010 at 12:47 pm

Hey everyone what has been your experience in trying to use this coupon. I am going to try later today and see what results I get. This time I feel like going in to talk to the manager. It is there new product and their new endorsement that they should honor the coupon. I feel a fight coming on.


26 TaTaBoo July 28, 2010 at 11:45 am

I am not finding the coupon. The link is going to McDonald's website. Click on Promotions, start a slide show. There is nothing regarding the coupon. Please help. Thanks


27 john July 28, 2010 at 3:34 pm

at 650 calories each they should be dang tasty!


28 rtj August 3, 2010 at 3:32 pm

29 Tin August 10, 2010 at 1:52 pm

The page is cannot be found, and I really need a McDonald's Real Fruit Smoothie or McCafe $1.00 coupon.
