McDonald’s is heating up the competition and wants to give Starbucks, King of the java market, a run for its money. Even though McDonald’s forayed into the coffee business pretty late, it is leaving no stone unturned in its efforts to grab a pie of the coffee market. Starting July 13, McDonald’s is giving away free 7-ounce Iced Mochas and 8-ounce Hot Mocha. This free deal is available at participating McDonald’s restaurants and will run each Monday from 7 A.M. to 7 P.M. at up to August 3 2009. It is really free – you do not have to purchase anything to grab this free cup of Mocha. McDonald’s is expecting to giveaway about 10 million mochas during this promotion.
