McDonalds Monopoly 2010 is underway, so hop in your car, do not pass go, do not collect $200 and drive on thru to snag your limited time only game pieces. The fast food giant’s long-standing and extremely popular promotion is primed to award thousands of prizes to consumers throughout the month, from RedBox rentals to Mickey D’s food to a cool million bucks.
Game participation is a tradition for me, and this year will be no different: My son is undergoing treatment at a not-so-local hospital and I trek there to stay with him every day, often after slipping through the drive thru at our local McD’s for a quick drink or McGriddles sandwich. I’m pumped to think of the free food I might win, especially with the publicized 1 in 4 odds plastered across the official McDonalds website.
If you’re wondering which food items offer 2010 McDonalds Monopoly game pieces and what you might win if lady luck is on your side, read on for all of the tender, juicy details.
What to Order
If you want to maximize your chances of walking away a winner by game’s end on November 1st (November 15th for the online version found at PlayatMCD.com), order one of these popular menu items stat:
Medium Soft Drink
Hash Brown (Breakfast only; Dollar Menu item)
Large French Fries
10-Piece Chicken McNuggets
20-Piece Chicken McNuggets
McGriddles Sandwiches (Breakfast only)
Medium and Large Hot and Iced McCafe Beverages
All items offer two games pieces each, save large fries, which will net the hungriest of consumers an extra two for a total of four. Oddly absent from the list is the Large Soft Drink, probably to prevent consumers from earning ‘too many’ stamps with large value meal purchases, so take note. It looks like a medium value meal will yield a stamp on your drink but not the fries, while a large value meal will yield the opposite: A stamp on your fries but not the drink.
McDonalds Monopoly 2010 Prizes
Each game piece offers the holder two chances to win: Once through the physical game stamp itself, and once via the second chance online game located at PlayatMCD.com. The online and physical game piece prizes are separate; here’s a peek at a few of the prizes you might win from each, as noted on the McDonalds website.
