McDonald’s $1.79 Filet-O-Fish Fridays

This is what I call “Cheap Filet-O-Fish Season.” It’s that magic time of year between Fat Tuesday and Easter Sunday when McDonald’s drops the price of their Filet-O-Fish sandwiches at many locations across the U.S. I have good news and bad news for the 2016 Lenten season. First, the bad news: I have seen fewer deals this year vs in the past. The special spring Filet-O-Fish offer is not a national promotion. Pricing and availability varies by restaurant and region. So far, there just aren’t as many discounted deals for 2016 as there used to be. Hopefully, this will change as we get closer to Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

The GOOD news is that Micky D’s in southern California is repeating their $1.79 Filet-O-Fish Fridays. This is the same price as last year and qualifies as one of the best fish sandwich deals available. The catch is that it’s ONLY available for 7 Fridays and ONLY at select locations. These are the dates:

– Friday, February 12, 2016
– Friday, February 19, 2016
– Friday, February 26, 2016
– Friday, March 4, 2016
– Friday, March 11, 2016
– Friday, March 18, 2016
– Friday, March 25, 2016

Most of the Los Angeles metro area restaurants are honoring this promotion. If one fish sandwich isn’t enough but two are too much, you can add an extra fish patty for just $1.00. Don’t miss $1.79 Filet-O-Fish Fridays, available through Good Friday 2016 at participating southern California McDonald’s restaurants.
