McDonald’s locations in the Triad are now randomly accepting a new form of payment for that burger, fries and shake.

Local McDonald’s restaurants are participating in the “Pay with Lovin” program from Feb. 2 through Feb. 14.

The campaign follows the launch of the company’s 2015 Super Bowl ad. Check out the video above for more information.

McDonald’s sent FOX8 the following statement about the campaign:

Customers who enter participating McDonald’s restaurants* within the Triad area at randomized, predetermined times between Monday, Feb. 2 and Saturday, Feb. 14 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time each day will be selected at random to participate. Once a selected customer has completed his or her order and presented a method of payment, the restaurant Guest Service Manager or Lovin’ Lead will explain that McDonald’s is doing something special that day, and the customer will be given the option to pay for his or her order with an act of Lovin’ instead. For instance, breakfast might cost a friendly fist bump to the crewmember on duty, lunch could be paid for with a call to a loved one and dinner could go for a compliment**.

McDonald’s is encouraging people to share their Lovin’ experiences and join the conversation by interacting with @McD_Triad on Twitter,, and by visiting

Triad McDonald’s restaurant owner and operator Johnny Tart says, “Our local communities from Burlington to Clemmons and Mount Airy to High Point have supported us for a long time. This is our direct way as local owners and operators to say thank you for choosing McDonald’s. A little more Lovin’ can change a lot.”
