McDonald's Is Giving Away Free Food For LIFE — Here's How To Get The Special Gold Card

Imagine just flashing your McGold Card and getting free burgers and fries for the rest of your life.

Hi, my name is Andy, and I'm addicted to McDonald's fries.

So at the risk of sounding as if I'm shilling for the Golden Arches (I'm not, I legit just love their food, fight me), I wanted to let you know about an ~enticing~ ad I just saw for free McDonald's food for life.

Apparently, the McGold Card — an exclusive, fancy gold membership card that gets you free McDonald's for the rest of your life — actually exists, and the company is giving the cards away this December.

To enter the sweepstakes, all you need to do is place an order through the McDonald's app (which I recommend using anyway if you go to McDonald's frequently). Each purchase is one entry, but you're limited to one entry per day. If you win, you get a card for yourself plus three more cards to give out to your friends and family! There are also some good deals on food throughout the month, like 50-cent double cheeseburgers and BOGO Big Macs.

There's some fine print on the "free food for life" thing, though: McDonald's defines that as two meals per week for the next 50 years. So you wouldn't be able to live off McDonald's seven days a week, but honestly, that's probably not a great idea anyway.

The sweepstakes — and the "Szn of Sharing" deals — start on Dec. 5 and go through Dec. 25. So if you'll excuse me, it's lunchtime, and I think I know what I'm going to get.
