There have long been rumours of a magical McDonalds gold card that gives the holder free burgers for life.
Rob Lowe, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet all have one, apparently, as well as a 100-year-old McDonalds-loving woman, and a man who abandoned a Big Mac to help rescue three kidnapped women.
But while the rumours have raged on, there hasnt been any confirmation from McDonalds that the cards exist – or any information on how youd go about getting your own.
Until now, that is.
Across the pond in the U.S., McDonalds has released a video stating that yes, the McGold Card does exist… and theyre running a competition to give one lucky person a gold card of their own.
This particular McGold Card will be different from the ones held by celebs, as rather than a card, itll be a phone case engraved with the winners name. Itll also be made out of 24-karat gold. Fancy.
The winner of the phone case gets a lifetime of free McDonalds, entitling them to two meals up to $7 a week for at least 50 years.
Now, before you rush into your nearest Maccas all excited, youll notice that we said those meals can be up to $7.
Theres a reason weve said dollars, not pounds: The competition is only happening in the U.S., and when we previously asked McDonalds UK about the existence of the magical cards they told us: The gold card does not exist in the UK and we have no plans of introducing it.
Which, yes, sounds like exactly what a restaurant with a plan to launch a gold card would say, but we reckon its wise to avoid getting your hopes up.
If you do live in the U.S., however, you are blessed with the chance to get your paws on free burgers for life.
All you have to do is place an order on the McDonalds app any time between Friday 10 August and 24 August to be in the running. Or if you dont fancy buying some fries, you can email [email protected] with the date in the subject line and your full name in the body of the email. Easy.
