Attention French fry fanatics: McDonald’s is giving away free fries every Friday from now until June 28. Dare we call it Fryday?

McDonald’s has run the free fry promotion in the past, and now it’s back for another round, with the deal available for the next six weeks.

In order to snag the “free fries on Friday” deal, you’ll need to spend at least $1 (excluding tax) at McDonald’s. The offer is for a medium French fry order, which usually costs somewhere around $1.69, though prices vary depending on your location. You can take advantage of this discount one time each day.

The offer is only available through Mobile Order & Pay at participating McDonald’s, so you’ll have to download the McDonald’s app and pick up your order either curbside or at the drive-thru using a four-digit code. But, while you’re exploring the app, you’ll see more deals on coffee drinks, breakfast sandwiches, McNuggets and more. You can also get a free medium French fry just by signing up, and you can enjoy that deal any day of the week.

Golden and crispy on the outside, and fluffy on the inside, McDonald’s famous fries have garnered some fans. The fast-food chain is picky about its potatoes, using a variety of different kinds such as the Russet Burback, the Russet Ranger, and the Canadian Shepody.

Pair it with a Coke from the Dollar Menu. McDonald’s Coke does taste better, after all, partly because the fast-food chain pre-chills the syrup before it enters the fountain dispensers. Also, the soda is delivered to Mickey D’s in stainless steel tanks instead of plastic bags.

McDonald’s has been on a roll lately with its freebies. You can also get a free Minute Maid pink lemonade slushie by downloading the app.  The pink lemonade flavor is a newcomer to this year’s spring menu, joining fruit punch and blue raspberry flavors.

So, will you be getting in on the free fry deal? And do you like your fries with ketchup or paired with a dipping sauce?
