Picture a never-ending river of McNuggets, all for you. A vast lake of Shamrock shakes. A bottomless supply of Big Macs, Quarter Pounders and Egg McMuffins.
What’s that? Free McDonald’s for life, you say? Sign us up. Our arteries won’t mind, honest!
The fast-food giant just announced it’s making its fabled McGold Card the grand prize in its latest contest, meaning that you’ll have a shot at winning free Mickey D’s for the rest of your days. December will also bring plenty of meal deals like BOGO Big Macs.
Beginning Monday, Dec. 5, every time you order food in the McDonald’s app, you’ll be entered into a drawing. After Christmas, three randomly selected winners will each get a McGold Card. Each winner also gets three extra cards to hand out to friends and family.
Technically, “free McDonald’s for life” means you get two free meals a week for 50 years. Still, that’s a whole bunch of Happy Meals. We’re talking 5,200 trips to the Golden Arches.
The McGold Card is apparently something of an urban legend among followers of Ronald McDonald. A card that gets you free McDonald’s forever, woooaaahhh. Supposedly, big shots like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett each possess one of these cards.
“Our fans have been fascinated by the lore of the McGold Card and if it really exists,” said Tariq Hassan, McDonald’s chief marketing and customer experience officer.
(OK, fine, let’s assume that’s true.)
“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,” Hassan added.
