Some more than others.

But whether you're a regular or an "only when I'm drunk" kind of McDonald's patron, there's one thing for sure: You fucking love deals.

So it might drive you insane to learn you've been paying entirely too much for your Sausage Egg McMuffin.

$0.61 x 365 days = $222.65 in savings! DAMN!
