Now THAT'S McValue! Friends score a free McDonald's burger by tricking the self-serve computer using a little-known hack
The friends select 10 hamburgers and then remove beef patties from them
This takes $1.10 taken off of each, leaving the whole order with a $0 balance
The screen says 'no payment required' and a receipt with their order prints out

A little-known hack that allows McDonald's customers to eat for free has been revealed.
Two friends demonstrated the trick on a self-serve screen in a video posted to Reddit on Sunday - and it was put to the test by Daily Mail Australia on Monday.
By ordering 10 patty-less $1 burgers, customers can score a regular $1 hamburger for a grand total of $0.
Removing the meat from the 10 burgers discounts each meal by $1.10 - providing the customers with a surplus that covers the cost of the additional regular burger.
After requesting to check out, the computer confirms there is 'no payment required' and prints out a receipt and order number.
Reddit users were left divided over whether the hack was an ingenious way of eating for free, or a complete waste of food.
'May I suggest if you go to Maccas and order a hamburger with nothing in it, you're a bit of a tosser,' one user wrote.
'At the end of the day though, you only wanted the real cheeseburger. That's a lot of effort to save $1,' another user pointed out.
Other social media users warned against trying out the self-service hack in full view of security cameras...
