A free Big Mac, sounds like a great deal, right? During Sunday night’s Super Bowl, McDonald’s will announce a new contest called ‘Pay With Lovin’.’ The best part, the prizes are free food. Only in America.
From February 2 to February 14, customers will have a chance to win up to $5 of food. All you have to do is give someone a hug or tell a relative you love them. Not too difficult, right? Unless you really don’t like hugs or your family.
The contest, which launches the day after the commercial premier, will work like this. Customers will come into McDonald’s to order. Participants will be selected at random. The employee will tell them they are the unofficial winner, it is at this time the act of lovin’ must be performed. You know, hug the old guy drinking his morning coffee or the tired mother taking a nap while her kids terrorize the ball pit.
The only catch is that you must be a walk-in customer, drive-thru patrons aren’t included. So, get your lazy butt out of the car, you are about to consume thousands of calories.
Every restaurant will choose 100 random winners throughout the contest duration. One-third of the winners will be chosen on the first day of the contest, so it look’s like Monday lunch at McDonald’s. Sound confusing, don’t worry. The fast food chain even made a nifty chart breaking down your winning chances for you.
It seems like some people will be eating a lot of fast food in the coming month. Good thing it is sweater season! Are you lovin’ it?
