McDonald's is making a massive effort to help brighten your spirits during the quarantine. Their secret? Free French fries…along with a list of other discounts and food on-the-house.

That's right, the home of the World Famous Fries is giving out free medium size French fries for anyone who downloads the McDonald's app and registers from now and until June 28. You don't even have to order a McDouble, chicken McNuggets, or even a chocolate shake.

There's another way you can get those unrivaled French fries for absolutely free, and that's if you make a purchase of at least $1 through the mobile app on Fridays. Speaking of a dollar, in some regions of the U.S., if you spend that much on a Monday on the app, you can get a complimentary McCafe Latte, Macchiato, or Mocha. Now, that's the kind of me pick-me-up we need on a Monday—even during the pandemic.
