Here's How You Can Win Free McDonald's For Life

The victor will be awarded a rare McGold Card "in mobile form", entitling them to free McDonald's for the next five decades.

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.

The stuff of pop culture rumors and fast food lovers' dreams, the McGold Card does indeed exist, McDonald's confirms. Each order you place counts as an entry into the contest, with a limit of one entry per day.

McDonald's says the prize value totals at $52,350. The contest will run from today through August 24.

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. "You have a much better chance of winning a state lottery than picking something like this up". The giveaway is exclusive to customers who use the app's "Mobile Order & Pay" feature.

McDonald's is kicking off a new contest that will result in a lucky victor bumping the Amex from their wallet in favor of a new Gold Card.

The victor will be alerted via email or on their McDonald's app. The potential victor will be selected in a random prize drawing on or about August 29, 2018. The lucky holder is entitled to free food for life. Or, to be more specific, two meals per week for 50 years.

While campaigning for president in 2012, Mitt Romney told a story of how his father had a "little pink card" that awarded him free McDonald's for life. To enter send "an email to with only the date (mm/dd/yy) you are sending the email in the subject line and your first/last name in the body of the email".
