McDonald's McGold Card Entitles Winner To Free Food For Life

For a chance to win free McDonald's for life, customers within the US only need to download the McDonald's app and place an order via "Mobile Order & Pay".

This contest runs from August 10 through August 24.

While this may seem like an incredible deal, the entire "lifetime supply" of food is valued at $52,350.00, and the real kicker is that it is all going towards McDonald's fast food.

And it will only last for 50 years.

As you would expect, there's a ton of fine print that goes along with the "free food for life" card.

At a ceremony introducing The Gateway Arch in 1965, McDonald's gave out the first McGold Card to the mayor of St. Louis, MO that awarded a lifetime of free McDonald's.

The contest runs from August 10 through August 24 with one possible entry per day. But this contest brings forth the opportunity of the rest of us non-multi billionaires to own one.

McDonald's is shedding the shroud of mystery surrounding the long-rumored and mysterious McGold Card, confirming that the thing of legends and dreams does in fact exist. McDonald's says the victor will be drawn at random and be notified within two days.

Rob Frankel, a Los Angeles-based branding strategy expert, tells CNBC that he's not impressed.

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 card is actually a gold plated phone case that will be awarded to the competition's victor.

The lucky victor will also receive a personalized 24-karat-gold-plated phone case. "The odds of winning a prize will be determined by the number of eligible Entries received", the contest's official rules read.

Nevertheless, entering the contest takes a minimal amount of effort and it could earn you a whole lot of McDonald's. "I don't think it's going to do anything to encourage the app usage".
