Move aside, Willy Wonka. There’s a new golden ticket in town, and this one promises free McDonald’s for life.
The fast-food franchise is promoting the national rollout of its mobile order & pay feature in the McDonald’s app with a single McGold Card, giving one lucky customer the chance to win free meals for life.
In addition to the McGold Card, the winning customer will also be given a customized 24-carat golden phone case as a way to show-off their exclusive membership to the Golden Arches.
The McGold Card originated back in 1965 when the mayor of St. Louis was awarded a lifetime of free McDonald's at the introduction ceremony of the Gateway Arch. Since then, it has been gifted to a small selection of other notable figures, and its existence has been debated as the stuff of urban legend.
U.S. customers can enter the sweepstakes by downloading the McDonald’s app and placing an order via mobile order & pay any day from Aug. 10 through Aug. 24. One possible entry is allowed per day.
More information on the sweepstakes and rules for entry can be found online or on the McDonald’s App.
