This is sure to make you excited for Monday for once: McDonald's is giving away free Egg McMuffins come Monday, March 2nd.

This may seem a little random so let me explain. The chain has also declared Monday, March 2nd as National Egg McMuffin Day. Even better! (CNN reports this also isn't a coincidence - as Wendy's rolls out their new breakfast menu nationwide at the same time. Shady!)

To cash in, you will have to download the chain's free mobile app. Once it is downloaded, you can redeem the offer come Monday. You can only redeem it between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. It won't work during any other time frame.

This seems pretty easy! Plus, who doesn't love free food? By the way - McDonald's shared this news on their Twitter account early Friday (February 28th).

There are lots of opportunities for free food prior to this giveaway thanks to Leap Day! You can get up to thirty bucks in free beer from Stella Artois. Many other chains and restaurants are offering up free desserts or food deals in honor of the Leap Year, too.
