Tomorrow is National French Fry Day and McDonald’s is celebrating by giving away these golden delicious treats every Friday for the rest of July. The fast-food chain has partnered with Apple Pay on this promotion so you’ll need to make the purchase with your iPhone.

The process is just a bit more complex than just telling an employee you want free fries with your Big Mac. The order has to come through the McDonald’s app, and paid for with Apple Pay.

How to get your fries

If you haven’t already, download the McDonald’s app and create an account. Select Order and add some items that total more than $1. Sorry, the company excludes excludes Dollar Menu items.

Next, tap on Deals and then FREE Medium Fries with minimum purchase of $1 deal.

Be sure you’re set up Apple Pay on your iPhone. Check out using this contactless payment system. If it’s new to you, Cult of Mac have a guide on how to use Apple Pay.

This deal is good at McDonald’s July 12, July 19 and July 26.
