The McDonald’s ’60 Second Promise’: Check The Fine Print

I hated it when McDonald’s in Australia started making everything “on the spot” and forcing you to stand around awkwardly, so the fact that signs promising food in 60 seconds or less have started to appear in Sydney restaurants seems promising. Unfortunately, you can only score a free cheeseburger under this deal at certain times of day.

The poster gives huge prominence to the ’60 second promise’, but it’s only when you look closely that you find this only applies over lunch:

All things considered, I’d rather get my food fast than a free cheeseburger and a delay, but it rankles when these terms and conditions are concealed in small print. That would never be acceptable for an ISP offering an “unlimited” deal. It’s also evident this isn’t a permanent change, dammit.

Anyone spotted these elsewhere around the country? Are the hours always the same? Let us know in the comments.
