Back in 2016, actor Rob Lowe went on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show, where he revealed that he had a secret McDonald’s McGold Card, which granted him unlimited free McDonald’s. How did he get his hands on this legendary card? Turns out he knows the inventor of the Egg McMuffin.
So what do you do if you don’t hob-nob with the rich & famous but still want free McDonald’s for life? Never fear, because this SZN of Sharing, McDonald’s is giving one lucky customer their very own McGold Card. And it’s super easy to take part in this giveaway.
From December 5th through 25th, every purchase made using the McDonald’s App will count as one entry toward winning the McGold Card. And because McDonald’s just tastes better when shared, they’re not only giving the winner a card for themselves, but also cards for three of their friends or family members.
What would you do if you scored free McDonald’s for life? Treat your work bestie to a morning McCafé coffee pick-me-up? Surprise your neighbors with mid-week McNuggets? Delight some unsuspecting folks behind you in the Drive Thru with free dinner?
“Our fans have been fascinated by the lore of the McGold Card and if it really exists. And now, we’ll make this McDonald’s legend a reality for our fans by giving them the ultimate holiday gift – a chance to win a card and then share access to it with three of their family or friends,” said Tariq Hassan, McDonald’s USA Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer. “Just by using the McDonald’s App, everyone can experience the joy that comes with sharing McDonald’s this holiday season.”
McDonald’s didn’t say how much the card is worth, but back in 2018, the prize was valued at $52,350. The card entitles the owner up to two meals per week for 50 years. You can learn more about this giveaway and read the official rules here.
I don’t know about you, but I’ll definitely be eating a lot of McDonald’s in the coming weeks!
