Are you lovin' the cold temps?

Will McDonald's pay you to eat there tomorrow?

We're sitting at a -17 wind chill here in beautiful, sunny Milwaukee. And, McDonald's restaurants in Southeastern Wisconsin are in the middle of its annual weather related promotion called "Cold Days, Hot Deals."

Here's the deal. Buy a Big Mac or Sausage Egg McMuffin at the regular price and get a "second one of the same item for the temp. yesterday at noon."

The projected temperature at noon today is between -1 and 3 degrees.

So, what if the mercury stays below zero? Does that mean McDonald's pays us to eat that second Big Mac?

Unfortunately not. The official answer is that when the temperature drops to zero or below the second sandwich is simply free.

Free, though, is still pretty good.

Hat tip to Caitlin Moyer on this one as I used her Facebook post and photo as inspiration.
