One lucky person could win McDonald's for life in a new contest

13 August 2018

Starting Friday, any person who orders from McDonald's using the mobile order-and-pay app is entered to win the McGold Card sweepstakes, which guarantees the victor free fast food for the rest of their lives. The victor, subject to verification, will receive McDonald's food for Life (for the victor only), up to two meals per week for 50 years, awarded as a $1,000 credit on winner's McDonald's App and $35,400 cash, plus $15,600 to offset taxes on the prize, awarded as a check for $51,000.

In order to win the prize, all you have to do is place a mobile order using the McDonald's smartphone app.

And while there was previously no way for us ordinary folks to get our hands on the card, McDonald's has announced that it will randomly give one away at the end of August. There is only one person in the entire world that owns a legit Gold Card, and that person is none other than Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who clearly is in no place to need one to afford his Mickey D's meals. The prize is valued at $52,350, according to the contest website.

The promotion starts today and runs through August 24.

The victor not only wins the McGold card but will also receive a custom gold-plated phone case. "You have a much better chance of winning a state lottery than picking something like this up". "The odds of winning a prize will be determined by the number of eligible Entries received", the contest's official rules read. Total ARV: $52,350. victor may choose a cash alternative of $1,000 in lieu of $1,000 App credit, added to check.

The plan was to finish the second round, make the cut and then immediately start the third round in threesomes off both tees. Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., was a part of the late wave that had its round suspended by the weather.

"One potential victor will be selected from among all eligible Entries received for the entire Entry period, in a random prize drawing on or about August 29, 2018, conducted by an independent organization selected by Sponsor".

For five decades, McDonald's has handed out only a few of the so-called mythical "McGold" cards.

And it will only last for 50 years.

They'll also receive $15,600 for taxes, because they're about to owe Uncle Sam some serious currency (didn't anybody ever tell you that nothing in life is free?).

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