The victor, subject to verification, will receive McDonald's food for Life (for the victor only), up to two meals per week for 50 years, awarded as a $1,000 credit on winner's McDonald's App and $35,400 cash, plus $15,600 to offset taxes on the prize, awarded as a check for $51,000. "The Lost City of Gold, the Treasure of Montezuma, and the McGold Card offering free McDonald's for life", a narrator announces in a movie trailer/true crime docuseries/mockumentary. In addition, the victor "will receive a custom gold-0plated "McGold Card" phone case". The victor will receive a gift card via the McDonald's app with $1,000 that can be used to get the food.

The lucky person to get their claws on the McGold card will only be able to have two meals a week at the restaurant, worth up to £5.40 each.

- There's an exclusive McDonald's club that even includes members like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, allegedly. That enters you in the contest to win the prize, valued at $52,350, although the begrudging admiration of your friends and enemies is priceless.

According to CNBC, the free food "for life" contest is aimed at boosting the popularity of McDonald's online ordering system. In order to place yourself in the running for the highly coveted and sought after McGold Card, all that you have to do is place an order through the McDonald's app from August 10 through August 24. Victor will also receive a custom gold-plated phone case.
