McDonald's mobile customers get chance to win food for life


GETTY STOCK IMAGE LUCKY One customer will be given free meals forever

The obvious answer is with a McGold Card in one hand and a free Happy Meal in the other.

Reportedly first created by a franchise owner in 1965, a McDonald's McGold Card, and the free food it comes with, is a thing of legend. In a new announcement released on Twitter, the Golden Arches, home of the Quarter Pounder and fan-favorite golden French fries, announced that one fortunate soul will have the chance to win the McGold Card, allowing them to score free McMuffins, Big Macs, and McCafes for life.

The McGold Card doesn't necessarily mean unlimited food however.

According to the brand's website, customers will receive one entry every time they pick up an order that they've placed by using Mobile Order & Pay from August 10 to August 24.

The victor of the McGold card will also be awarded with a customized 24-carat golden phone case to mark their membership into the history and mystery of McGold Card lore, all powered by the McDonald's App in 2018. Even Rob Lowe and Bill Gates don't have one of those, so take that, dudes who can already afford all the McDonald's they want but don't have to pay for it anyway!

The lucky person to get their claws on the McGold card will only be able to have two meals a week at the restaurant, worth up to £5.40 each. The monetary prize represents the "free food", with McDonald's calculating the cost of "up to two meals per week for fifty (50) years" as the aforementioned cash pot. It appears that all memory of that documentary has been wiped, because McDonald's lovers are going insane over a new competition that will award one victor free food for life. Victor will also receive a custom gold-plated phone case.
