The fast food giant confirms the details of the promotion but notes that prices may be higher in California.

McDonald’s has confirmed that it will launch a $5 Meal Deal on Tuesday, June 25.

The move has been expected since mid-May, but the fast food giant is just now releasing the details as part of a “Summer of Value” promotion.

The $5 deal will be available for a limited time and include a McDouble or McChicken sandwich, small fries, four-piece Chicken McNuggets, and a small soft drink.

But in small print on the news release, it says McDouble meal options may be priced at $6 at select restaurants in California and other locations including Nevada, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii and Guam.

The promotion also includes “Free Fries Fridays” for McDonald’s App users. They can get a free medium order of fries every Friday for the rest of the year with a minimum $1 purchase.

Some Southern California franchisees will have their own offers, such as $1.49 soft drink specials, according to an email accompanying the news release.
