This year as part of the McDonald’s Monopoly Double Peel prize draw competition, the international fast-food giant announce the exclusive giveaway of 1,000 VIP McDonald’s Gold Cards. What are they and how do I get one?

Free McDonald’s meals? Yes, please!

McDonald’s launched the elusive gold card as part of the McDonald’s Monopoly Double Peel free prize draw. During the competition, 1,000 VIP McDonald’s Gold Cards were up for grabs by customers lucky enough to win these via the McDonald’s App.

What can I get with my McDonald’s gold card?

Unlike the Nando’s black card which offers unlimited food for the holder and their guests, the McDonald’s gold card comes with limits on what can be ordered. From the terms and conditions, we can see that the gold card holders receive one free meal a week and this can include the following.

• Consumers will get a choice of a 3-part combo (Main+ Side + Drink) to include the following:
• ANY Sandwich (Include Wraps, Salads, Normal Sandwich’s and Promos
• ANY Side (Cheese, Medium Fries, Side Salad, Fruit Bag etc…
• ANY Medium Drink (Shakes, Blended Ice, Hot Drinks etc…)
• Consumers can choose to take their free meal offer at either breakfast or main day

Can I buy a McDonald’s Gold Card separately?

Unfortunately, even if you’re Ed Sheerin the only way to get a McDonald’s Gold card is to win one. Originally these were prizes for the 2022 McDonald’s Monopoly, but due to their popularity, they have become prizes for further competitions including the Halloween Trick or Eat promotion.

We hope they become a prize to be won in all major campaigns going foward.
