Does anybody else just think it encourages people to buy more food?! And does anybody actually win?

That's obviously the point. It's a marketing campaign.

itiswhatitiswhatitis Mon 14-Apr-14 22:00:54

I think that's the whole point tbh

It's very effective too, they have been doing it for about 5 years and people really take it seriously.

I know two customers who won the house and a car.

I used to work for them.

Yes, that would totally be the point grin

I won a mobile phone 4 years ago. I went once a week and snaffling unused ones from tables paid off. grin

By jove you're right. A company is trying to increase profits by encouraging sales. Thanks for the warning.

I can't play! Bloody family working there.

Shatners grin are you saying that they aren't doing this for the good of my health? Cops if so I'm suing them. I won extra portions of fries and drinks most weeks.

Of course it is.

Very good marketing idea.

What ever next, supermarkets offering saving savings on fuel

I won 6 chicken nuggets, a donut, fries and a milkshake all from seperate purchases (I like their mango smoothies).

So far have not won anything of impressive value though.

I remember mcdonalds monopoly when I was at uni over 16 years ago so it's obviously a money spinner

We love it in this house!

DS won an exta portion of fries last week. They lasted about 27 seconds.
We need one more to win an xbox one grin

it's the whole point, one of the best marketing strategies around I think.

I am one card away from winning a mini cooper - do you mean to tell me it's rigged, and I won't get it at my next purchase??

MoreLifeInATrampsVest Mon 14-Apr-14 23:55:09

I won ....... a fruit bag!

Never keep the cards though to play the game, only the instant wins.

passmethewineplease Mon 14-Apr-14 23:57:23

Really?! I can't believe it! shock

I've won a mc flurry and some porridge. hmm

Jellaby Tue 15-Apr-14 00:03:50

I won a hash brown smile

yegodsandlittlefishes Tue 15-Apr-14 00:06:20

Can anyone send me a Mayfair sticker? grin

Funnyfoot Tue 15-Apr-14 00:09:50

I won 6 nuggets. grin

BethCalavicci Tue 15-Apr-14 00:22:55

I won a free drink and an apple pie.

We won 100 free photos & a sundae at the weekend which was nice. It is a very clever strategy if it works but won't make me go there more often.
