60-second service or a free McD sandwich

Today through July 31, you'll get your drive-through order in 60 seconds or less at Charlotte-area McDonald's -- if you roll up between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. weekdays -- or you'll get a coupon for a free sandwich.

Owner-operator John Link, one of several in the area, said in a press release: It's "our way to have a little fun with our crews and customers this summer," he said. (I'm trying to imagine the crew thinking this is fun...)

Customers will be handed a sand timer when they pay. If the sand runs out before the order "is presented at the pick-up window," they'll get an apology and the coupon.

Just to clarify:

1. The timer only starts from once you pay, not when you give your order.

2. A sand timer is then given to you once you complete payment and is handed to you with a receipt (this, for some reason took longer than usual today...)

3. The 60 second challenge is only from the time you receive receipt to the time you receive your drink. The timer is taken away from you as soon as you pull up to the pick-up window and you receive part of your order (usually a drink). If your entree takes longer to prepare (like a chicken sandwich), you will have to wait.

Just drive really slow up to the second window or just keep your window rolled up.
