Pay for your McDonald’s meal with a hug

What can love buy you? A McDonald’s meal. Seriously.

The fast food chain will be trading in this "currency" from Feb 2 to Valentine's Day.

That means they'll accept a hug, a dance or a 'I love you' call to your mum in lieu of payment.

Too bad this 'Pay with Lovin' promotion applies only to outlets in the US.

Of course not everyone there will get to pay with love. (McDonald’s still has to make money, you know.)

Various outlets will have a fixed number of deals which they will give away at certain times of the day.

The company's spokesman said it expects about 1 million customers to benefit from this promotion deal, reported Huffington Post.
