Are There Any Purchases That Don’t Qualify for Points?

October 12, 2022

Qualifying purchases where an active reward, mobile offer or promotional offer is redeemed will earn points, but you will only earn points for U.S. dollars actually spent in the transaction. When a McDonald's Arch card is used to make a qualifying purchase, you will earn points. The following are not considered qualifying purchases and will not earn any points:

  1. taxes, bags and bottle fees, and other surcharges or fees
  2. loading any money on a McDonald's Arch Card® (gift card)
  3. delivery fees for orders placed using the McDonald’s app
