Fast-Food Breakfast Specials

The convenience and speed of fast food is tempting in the morning, but it can get pricey if you go often. You can find great breakfast deals if you shop around, but that takes some time. To save you the legwork, we've compiled the cheapest fast-food breakfast specials at national chains to make your mornings more wallet-friendly.

Prices and availability are subject to change.

McDonald’s Egg McMuffin

1. McDonald's: BOGO for 50 Cents Breakfast Sandwiches

Two breakfast sandwiches won't cost you much at McDonald's right now. Check out the "Deals" section of the chain's app, and you'll see a coupon for buy one breakfast sandwich, get one for 50 cents. Deals vary by location, so shop around if you have a number of McD's near you.

Chick-Fil-A: $3 Chicken Biscuit

2. Chick-fil-A: $4 Chicken Biscuit

Why would someone go to Chick-fil-A and order anything but the signature fried chicken breast? It's even available in the morning, and the plain chicken biscuit will only set you back $4. Upgrade it to a spicy chicken biscuit for only a quarter more (and don't forget the sauce!).

Breakfast Crunchwrap
Taco Bell

4. Taco Bell: $4 Breakfast Crunchwrap

Taco Bell finally got rid of its $6 Bell Breakfast Box, which was by far the best deal on the morning menu.

If a burrito is all you need, you can't beat the Cheesy Toasted Breakfast Burritos for only $2.
