(Newser) – National French Fry Day fell on a Friday the 13th this year, but McDonald's is going to make it happen on a lot of other Fridays. The chain says it will give away free french fries every Friday for the rest of 2018 to customers who download the McDonald's app and spend at least $1, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Customers will have to order through the app to qualify for the free medium fries, reports the Sacramento Bee, which notes that the chain has a similar deal involving soft drinks for those who aren't big fans of fries. (McDonald's is moving toward getting rid of plastic straws.)
