A McDonald & # 39; s customer recently revealed a sneaky hack for buying a half-price cheeseburger.
Josh Garlepp filmed and posted his journey through a McDonald’s transit in Perth, Western Australia TikTok on Sunday.
In the video, he asked a restaurant worker if he could add a $ 1.50 slice of cheese to his hamburger.
McDonald & # 39; s cheeseburgers cost $ 3.55 – more than twice as much as a hamburger – but the only difference between the two is a single slice of cheese.
But McDonald & # 39; s isn't the only place to get a bargain for a meal or drink.
This is where FEMAIL reveals the top menu hacks from high street chains across the UK and worldwide to save a small fortune on food and drink.
Burger King has a secret "Have It Your Way" menu that allows you to customize the burgers to your liking
BURGER KING: HALF PRICE BACON DOUBLE CHEESE BURGER
Burger King has a secret "Have It Your Way" menu that allows you to customize the burgers to your liking.
Money Saving Expert previously uncovered a hack that means you can get the chain's Bacon Double Cheeseburger for £ 4.39 for less than £ 2.
To use the trick, all you have to do is order a simple double cheeseburger from the King Saver menu at a Burger King branch.
Then ask the server to add bacon – and your burger should look the same as an official Bacon Double Cheeseburger, which is half the price.
The chain also has deals on their app, including a £ 1.99 Whopper Burger and £ 1.99 Chicken Nuggets, and a £ 2.49 Chicken Royale.
STARBUCKS: UNLIMITED COFFEE FOR £ 1.55
The chain is buried deep on the Starbucks website, showing that it offers free refills in the UK.
We're used to fast food chains like McDonald & # 39; s and Burger King offering soft drink refills, but it may surprise some that a coffee chain also offers this offer.
There is a little catch, however.
Starbucks is offering free refills to customers when they order £ 1.55 worth of filter coffee from any of its UK stores
The free refill offer only applies to the Coffee Titanium's filter coffees, which are available in the UK for £ 1.55.
But if you order one, you can ask your barista for another large filter coffee in the house.
The menu hack will be posted in the FAQ section of the Starbucks website.
The UK version says, "If you buy a filter coffee to stay in one of our participating stores in the UK or Ireland, you can enjoy a filter filter with us when you complete."
However, it is added that this offer is only available while supplies last and that the free refill offer can be withdrawn at the barista's discretion.
PRET: FREE COFFEE FOR ONE MONTH
To welcome customers back after stores have closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Pret A Manger is offering its customers unlimited coffee for just £ 20 per month.
But the first month is free – that is, shoppers can buy five coffees a day (that's 155 coffees) for a full month without paying a penny. Though that can be a little too much caffeine for most.

MCDONALDS: £ 1.99 Big Mac and Fries for Life
Usually, the popular burger, accompanied by the restaurant's crispy golden french fries, costs almost £ 4. However, MoneySavingExpert has come up with an ingenious way to reduce costs at the McDonald's checkout.
It takes a few small steps for this fast food hack to work, but once you do it you'll never pay more than £ 2 for a Big Mac meal again.
The first thing you need to do is make a purchase. MoneySavingExpert recommends opting for a 59p Mini McFlurry, the cheapest on the menu. One drink is also sufficient.
A savvy fast food fan found a way to save money on your next McDonald's Big Mac
After you've made your purchase, take your receipt and go to the Food for Thoughts website to enter the offer code that was written or printed near the survey details. The entire process should take about two minutes.
When all is said and done, you'll be given a five-digit number that can be redeemed for a discounted Big Mac and french fries. The food should come in at £ 1.99.
You can repeat the same process with each new receipt until the promotion ends, but it is limited to one per day. The offer is only valid for people over 16 years of age.
Not a fan of the Big Mac? This offer also applies to Fillet-O-Fish or Veggie Deluxe.
NANDOS: Save 40 pence on fries, £ 2 on chicken
Couples can save money at Nando by ordering a shared platter instead of two separate meals.
A large wing board – which includes 10 wings and large chips – costs £ 15.50, which means guests can save £ 2.50.
If you're in the mood for french fries to eat, a large french fry costs 40p less than two regular fries, but gives you more fries overall, according to Sun.
