St. Patrick’s Day 2020 Freebies: Get Discounts on St. Paddy’s Day

St. Patrick's Day Deals

Getty McDonald's is one of the many restaurant chains celebrating St. Patrick's Day 2020 with themed items and deals.

St. Patrick’s Day 2020 is here, and with it comes a number of deals and promotions from restaurants and fast-food chains across the country who have gotten in the holiday spirit with St. Paddy’s-themed menu items.

It is worth noting that, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, many restaurants and chains are closed or operating on a limited schedule to encourage social distancing and prevent further spread of the disease; many are only offering takeout and delivery. Before taking advantage of the freebies and discounts nearest you, we recommend calling the location first to confirm that they are open and participating in St. Patrick’s Day this year.

That being said, here are the best deals we’ve found for St. Patrick’s Day this year:


In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Chili’s restaurants’ Margarita of the Month is called the “Lucky Jameson.” It costs $5 and contains Jameson Irish whiskey, tequila, triple sec, and fresh sour mix.

McDonald’s & DoorDash

McDonald’s is known for the “Shamrock Shake” that gets added to its menu for a limited time in celebration of the St. Patrick’s Day season. This year, DoorDash is offering $5 off when you order $15 or more of McDonald’s through their platform (using code “GETMCDS”).
