Can’t figure out what to feed the kids for dinner after a long day at work? Don’t worry, McDonald’s can take it from here with a buy one, get one Happy Meal deal that‘s sure to get the kids excited.

To access the coupon, all you need to do is download the free McDonald’s smartphone app, create an account and tap the “Deals” tab. When you’re at the counter, drive-thru or ordering kiosk, simply click on the coupon and present it to the cashier or scan the QR code at the kiosk.

That’s it. Dinner’s done.

But this is only one of the deals you can get this week with the McDonald’s app. There’s more.

If you just need a quick meal for yourself, you can buy a Signature Crafted Sandwich and get a medium order of fries and a soft drink for free.

Other deals available through the app include BOGO large fries, ice-cream sundaes, Big Mac sandwiches and even McGriddles.

Our only advice: Don’t be tempted to use every coupon McDonald’s has. Nothing’s wrong with a little indulgence every now and then, but a little restraint goes a long way.

All these deals expire Sunday, Oct. 8, but that only marks the beginning of the next tasty deal cycle.
