McDonald’s reworks its McPick 2 promo


McDonald’s is raising the price on its new McPick 2 promotion to accommodate the inclusion of pricier menu items, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Customers, who had been able to purchase two items from the McPick 2 menu for $2, will pay $5 starting Monday.

This will be the first time the chain has included items such as the Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish and Quarter Pounder with Cheese on a national value menu, the Tribune says. Current McPick 2 items include a double cheeseburger, McChicken sandwich, small fry and mozzarella sticks.

The McPick 2 menu, which debuted last month, is seen as McDonald’s entry into the ongoing value wars between major burger chains.
