If you’re a regular fast food customer, you’re probably looking for tipid tips and hacks to save up and elevate your food trips. Well, we got you! Here are some of the fast food hacks tried by fast food lovers that you’d love to explore on your next dine-in. 

KFC: Get a Free Mashed Potato

KFC is known for its yummy mashed potato, which serves as the perfect side dish to pair with most of its dishes. Did you know that you can get it for free? Some of you may have overlooked, but it is indicated in the receipt that you have a “free KFC gift.” So make sure to keep it! You must complete an online survey first and take note of the validation code to claim your free gravy on your next visit.

If you recently dined in at KFC and still have the receipt, you might want to check it, as the online survey is only valid for three days. This may vary depending on the branch. 

Jollibee: Tipid Combo Hack

As one of the most well-loved Filipino fast foods, Jollibee never fails to satisfy kids and kids at heart with their delicious food offerings, especially the Chickenjoy and Jolly Spaghetti!

Instead of ordering a one-piece Chickenjoy with rice or Chickenjoy with Jolly Spaghetti, save up by ordering a solo Chickenjoy with rice, Jolly Spaghetti, and burger steak meal! That’s only around P200, which is cheaper and has more serving (you’ll already get an extra rice) than Jolly Super Meals. For drinks, you can either add it for Jolly Spaghetti or burger steak meal.

Here’s another option for two people: you can separately order the two-piece Chickenjoy meal and two-piece burger steak meal, then switch them to come up with two one-piece Chickenjoy and burger steak meals for P260. This is a good hack if you want two different choices!

McDonald’s: Chicken Fillet Ala King + Chicken McDo Hack

The savory Chicken Fillet Ala King and crispy Chicken McDo meals are two of the most common picks of customers from its menu. But what if you want both or maybe you can’t decide which to choose between them?
