Should you win, not only will you receive free McNuggets, McGriddles, McFlurries, and the rest of the McDonald's menu for life, but the victor will also be gifted a 24-karat-gold-plated phone case (for Android or iPhone) with their name etched on it marking their exclusive membership to the McGold Card owners club.
To enter, customers can either order a meal using the McDonald's app between August 10 and August 24, or enter via email, as the official rules stipulate that no purchase is actually neccessary.
Though the fast-food chain played up the gold card myth in its marketing video-the victor will receive a custom gold-plated phone case along with his or her food-McDonald's isn't giving out all the Big Macs and Happy Meals a person could eat. Each order you place counts as an entry into the contest, with a limit of one entry per day.More news: Rowan Atkinson among those leaping to Boris Johnson's defence over burka comments
While the total value of the prize is nothing to scoff at, McDonald's is certainly banking on this deal. Victor will also receive a custom gold-plated phone case. By placing the order through the app, customers receive one entry into the contest.
The victor will be alerted via email or on their McDonald's app.
McDonald's is hosting a new contest that will reward lucky winners with the McGold Card.
The contest is similar to one run by coffee chain Starbucks, which was called Starbucks for Life, only not as generous.More news: Former Brazilian superstar footballer Ronaldo in intensive care
The victor will be drawn at random and then be notified within two days.
In late July, McDonald's unveiled MacCoin, a limited edition global currency, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Big Mac burger. The card is actually a gold plated phone case that will be awarded to the competition's victor. The rules state to, "put only the date you are sending the email in numeric format (mm/dd/yy) in the subject line and your first/last name in the body of the email".
This truly is a smart contest on the part of McDonald's.
