How to Get Double McDonald’s Cheeseburgers for 50 Cents Right Now
Today and tomorrow, McDonald’s is offering a deal that can quench your thirst if that craving comes with a double cheeseburger. From December 22 to 23, you can buy as many double cheeseburgers as you like for 50 cents each. (A double cheeseburger usually costs about $3.79, depending on your zip code.)
As with all deals (and in life), there are some caveats: they are only available through the McDonald’s app (but you can order them for delivery or pickup) and only during the lunch and dinner menu (between 11:00 and 22:30) . The Double Cheeseburger is different from the McDouble : both are double beef patties with pickles, chopped onions, ketchup and mustard, but on the Double Cheeseburger you get an extra slice of American cheese. Boom baby.
As a bonus, by ordering these discounted double cheeseburgers, you’re also eligible for the chance to win the elusive McGold Card, which gives you a free McDonald’s for life. Here is more information about it :
How to get a McGold card?
The McGold card is not new . It has been around for many years, but until now it has never been made available to the public. You can win it in the McDonald’s for Life Appstake [sic] competition running through the official McDonald’s mobile app from December 5th to 25th. To be eligible, you must first enroll in the MyMcDonald’s Rewards program with a valid free entry.
An in-app purchase will give you access to (sigh) McGold card apps. To enter without buying (why would you win McDonald’s if you don’t want to eat McDonald’s?), you can fill out the form . You can enter once a day for the duration of the promotion.
What does the McGold card give me?
According to official rules , the McGold Card is valid for two meals a day for 50 years. There is no restriction in the fine print on what exactly defines “food,” but it states that the total annual cost of the card is $1,040 per year for 50 years. If you don’t plan to live that long, you can opt for the $1,040 yearly card and the $50,960 cash prize instead. You’ll also get the chance to gift equivalent McGold cards to up to three of your friends so they can enjoy the rewards with you. On a nice touch, the winner will also receive a check for $22,285 to “help offset taxes on the Prize.” Unfortunately for your lucky friends, they won’t get that kind of tax relief.
Your chances of winning are slim, but they are not zero. If you win, you will be notified via email and push notification from the McDonald’s app.
