    We've used the app successfully in the past. Today, it rejected the order with a screen that said "Problem with Payment. There's an issue with your payment method. Please choose another method to proceed." We went inside and paid cash.

    We returned home to find the purchase amount had been charged to our account 14 times for a total of nearly $320. No charges have gone through, but the bank can't remove the holds for one week unless McDonald's tells them to. McDonald's claims it doesn't have the authority to contact my bank to remove them.

    The CS reps from the bank have been courteous and helpful, those at McDonald's less so. We'll never use that app again.

    Searching through Google it shows that the McDonald's app is known for doing this, often it charges twice for the same order. And it's a hassle to get the money back. Didn't find any exact solution for it other than a good advice that you should challenge the bank because if they look closely they will see that the authorization number for the charges are all the same.

    Hope that is of any help buddy! Good luck!

    Leave the man alone. The occasional fast food meal is not going to kill him. The pain in the ass transaction is the problem here...
