Man's Simple Fast-Food Hacks for Saving Money Are Total Game-Changers

Who loves to save money? We do! Eating out and buying groceries could leave a dent in your bank account. But we all have to eat. That’s why it’s essential to be a bargain hunter. Using coupons or rewards programs could save you money each month. Grocery stores and restaurants have apps that offer coupons, discounts, and rewards. However, there are ways to save money at fast food restaurants too.

In a recent TikTok video by content creator @thedealguy, he shares ten hacks for keeping more of your money the next time you visit a fast food place. Some of these ideas were new to us. We'll keep these tips in our back pocket for sure!

These hacks are gold! We’re all about adding our toppings to a plain McDonald’s sundae, grabbing a bag of ice from a restaurant, or getting a free donut for a child from Krispy Kreme. Let’s see if the TikTok community wants to take advantage of these hacks. User @Aubrey Perry wrote, “So happy to see you over here!” @Brandon H. Rizer joked, “Sorry, I can't do that. The ice cream machine is still broken.” @YNAB Team replied, “I’m totally doing the Chipotle thing!” @You stalking me?! 🤨 remarked, “I NEEDED this.” @5-hour ENERGY revealed, “Fast Food Hack: It's all free if mom buys it for you.”

There seem to be some loopholes with a few of the hacks mentioned. We always recommend contacting your local fast food franchise to see if their rules are different. But overall, these hacks are helpful, and we look forward to using them. If you liked this video, check out @thedealguy’s TikTok channel for more valuable tips.
