For the first time, McDonald’s patrons have the chance to win a McGold Card, entitling them to a lifetime of free orders from the fast food chain.

The winner of one — and only one — McGold Card will get lifetime rights to free food at McDonald’s.

The McGold Card, awarded in the past to only a lucky few, will be up for grabs through the McDonald’s App by ordering via Mobile Order & Pay through Aug. 24, with one possible entry per day.

The card giveaway is exclusive to the app, which allows customers to customize orders, get exclusive app deals and place their order ahead of time from their phones. Mobile Order & Pay also allows customers to pick up their order curbside, inside or at the drive-through window.

“Mobile Order & Pay is just one of the latest ways we are transforming convenience and value for our customers. To celebrate Mobile Order & Pay, we’re giving one of our mobile customers the chance to win the McGold Card and join a select group of McDonald’s fans, just for using the app,” Hashim Amin, head of U.S. Digital at McDonalds’s, says.

The winner also will receive a customized 24-carat golden phone case to mark their membership into McGold Card lore.

At a 1965 ceremony introducing the Gateway Arch, McDonald’s gave out the first McGold Card to the mayor of St. Louis, MO., awarding a lifetime of free McDonald’s. From then on, a select number of McGold Cards have been given out to persons ranging from the governor of Michigan to the king of Sweden.

Mobile Order & Pay on the McDonald’s App is available in nearly 14,000 restaurants in the U.S.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
