The McGold Card is Real! And Now You Can Win One… Free McDonald’s For Life!

The McGold Card is real. It’s a rare and somewhat secret card and you have a small chance of getting one. If you haven’t heard of the McGold Card, it’s pretty damn special. It grants the holder free McDonald’s for life. All the Big Macs and fries that you want.

Such a card was rumored to exist after celebrities such as Warren Buffet and Rob Lowe have spoken about owning one. Even Bill Gates is rumored to have one, according to USA Today. In total, only a handful of the most dedicated McDonald’s fans have been granted McGold Card access.
