It is the season to be jolly, which means that holiday lights have been strung up, Santa Clauses have begun to appear everywhere, and of course, each of us has a significant amount of Christmas shopping to complete.
However, holiday shopping almost always results in holiday hunger. Nevertheless, during this time of year, it is always beneficial to save a dollar here and there. To the relief of a number of customers, McDonald’s has agreed to pay (at least at McDonald’s) for the rest of their lives for the food they purchase there.
How? The collectible McDonald’s McGold card is going to be made available once more by the quick-service restaurant chain. According to USA Today, the McDonald’s gold card was first distributed in 2018, and it granted the lucky recipient free meals at McDonald’s for the rest of their lives.
Or… at the very least, the equivalent of $52,350 worth, based on the amount that was distributed in 2018. How exactly does one go about acquiring the coveted McDonald’s McGold card, one might ask?
Detailed instructions on how to win a McDonald’s McGold card.
However, what we do know is that each winner will be able to share their good fortune with three other family members or friends of their choosing. McDonald’s has not yet disclosed how much the 2022 McGold card will be worth, but we do know that each winner will be able to do so.
The question now is, how exactly can you participate in the drawing for the McDonald’s McGold card? Simple. Beginning on December 5, each and every purchase made through the McDonald’s app counts as one entry into the sweepstakes.
You have until Christmas Day 2022 to enter the sweepstakes and satisfy your craving for McDonald’s before the promotion comes to an end, so you still have some time. Just make sure to pick out an item with a price tag of at least one dollar! Anything less than that is not considered an entry.
The ‘SZN of Sharing’ campaign that McDonald’s is running includes the McGold card.
According to the same report published by USA Today, Tariq Hassan, the chief marketing and customer experience officer for McDonald’s, was quoted as having the following to say about why the company decided to bring back the McGold card:
“The legend of the McGold Card, as well as the question of whether or not it actually does exist, has captivated our audience. 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.”
