McDonald's offers free food 'for life' through McGold Card contest

It will award that person free McDonald's for life. According to Today, examples of noteworthy honorees include actor Rob Lowe, whose card is good for locations in Santa Barbara and Goleta, California, and Bill Gates who has been rumored to have a globally-accepted McGold Card (as if he needed one).

The victor of the contest will receive a "McGold Card", which earns them two free meals per week for the next 50 years - not exactly unlimited food for life, but an offer no hardcore McDonald's fan would sneeze at.

McDonald's is giving away free food "for life" in a contest aimed at boosting the popularity of its online ordering system.

In order to be able to win, customers have to place an order using the McDonald's mobile application between August 10 and August 24. McDonald's says that this will be enough to eat two seven-dollar meals per week for the next 50 years, which is correct if you do the math. "The odds of winning a prize will be determined by the number of eligible Entries received", the contest's official rules read. "You have a much better chance of winning a state lottery than picking something like this up".

For one thing, it creates a mystique about the idea that other people have this secretive card entitling them to free food.

Despite that criticism, McDonald's appears to be following in the footsteps of similar contests run by both Starbucks and Taco Bell.

However, if it's fun you're after, the victor will also receive a custom, one-of-a-kind 24-karat gold-plated McGold Card phone case, pictured above. The potential victor will be selected in a random prize drawing on or about August 29, 2018.

This is the first time a McGold Card has been awarded in a contest. However, 11 winners won the prize that was worth roughly $11,000 each.

In late July, McDonald's unveiled MacCoin, a limited edition global currency, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Big Mac burger. It's also possible to enter via email without buying anything.

Nevertheless, entering the contest takes a minimal amount of effort and it could earn you a whole lot of McDonald's.

You can play without making a purchase.
