And the 99p McMuffin will earn you 99 points through the MyMcDonald’s loyalty scheme.

You’ll need at least 1,500 points to earn anything for free. Menu items you can exchange with them include small fries, a regular McCafe and a mini McFlurry.

What else is on the menu and for how much?

Maccies is the perfect place to grab a bite on the cheap, with snacks and deals starting from less than 99p.

McDonald’s menu is the same across the UK – stock and ice cream machines permitting – but prices can differ slightly, depending on where you live.

Central London prices are normally pricier. For example, without the promotion, a Big Mac usually costs at least £3.99 as a singular item, but in Slough the same item costs roughly £3.49.

But for general pricing, six chicken nuggets cost from £3.49 while nine are £3.79 and a share box of 20 is £4.59, according to the McDonald’s app.

You will only need 99p for a small portion of fries, £1.39 for a medium, and £1.69 for a large box.

Children’s favourite, the Happy Meal, costs £2.79.

The McDonald’s wrap of the day goes for £1.99 alone or and £3.59 as a large meal.
