At the time of writing, the gourmet Filet O Fish burger is an unaffordable $4.75. And no, that’s not the small McValue meal, that’s just the tiny, unsatisfying minibun burger.
Being 25 years old, my parents no longer pay for my McDonald’s trips and all McExpenses are paid for out of my own pocket. So here today is the Filet O Fish loophole, which willl save you $1.35 cents off the retail price.
The Filet-O-Fish Loophole
- 1 Chicken N Cheese with no McChicken patty and no sauce $1.40
- 1 Filet O Fish patty $1.60
- 1 serving of tartare sauce $0.40
The Chicken N Cheese is initially $3, but for non loose change menu items, removing protein inputs lowers the cost, without out the McChicken patty it comes to a total of $1.40. You are left with a bun and a half slice of cheese.
Open this bun and slide in your Filet O Fish patty. Using a straw, or cutlery of provided, spread tartare sauce onto the bun. You now have a Filet O Fish burger.
I don’t have photos of the individual inputs because my local McDonald’s branch nicely took all the shame out if this loophole for me and assembled my burger for me. Shame free savings=winning in life!!! Hopefully your local McDonald’s will understand your life problems and free you of any shame too.
I haven’t eaten a Filet O Fish in over 10 years, as I couldn’t afford it before this. However, this loophole tastes just like what I’ve been dreaming about for the last 10 years. It’s just like a cheeseburger but with the dry, cheap crumbed fish fillet with the tangy tackiness that only McDonald’s can master.
As you can see from the My Maccas shame calculator below.
The fair value of the Fillet O Fish Loophole is $3.40, estimating the intrinsic value of the inputs to be:
- Fillet O Fish patty: $1.60
- 1/2 slice of cheese: $0.25
- Tartare sauce: $0.40
- Cheeseburger bun: $1.15
- Shame: $1.35
Here are some ways to reallocate that $1.35 saving shame:
- Perform the McFlurry Loophole for $1.10
- Perform the McNuggets Loophole for $1.60
- Add bacon to your Filet-O-Fish for $1
- Small fries for $1
- Four soft serve cones for $1.20
- Apple pie for $1.50
