9 McDonald's Monopoly codes and not one win! Is it a con?!

How do you win? You type code in to the website, something spins, you move across the board then it says sorry.

Has anyone ever won anything but food/drink from this?

AIBU to think the codes are bullshit?

SugarMiceInTheRain Wed 19-Apr-17 17:43:42

The codes you put in online are for cash prizes. I've entered dozens this time round and won nothing, but last year I won a fiver. We are eating more McDonald's meals than I care to admit blush grin A few years back, we got both the browns and won a wireless speaker too. But tbh it's mostly a marketing thing isn't it? The free food/ drinks are a nice bonus.

I won £20 CEX vouchers doing that

ThePinkOcelot Wed 19-Apr-17 17:58:36

Ha ha, DD has sat this afternoon and put loads of codes in and won diddly squat. I've wondered if anyone has ever won the big prizes.
Ive won a free hot drink though.

It's a con I've won nothing also

ProudBadMum Wed 19-Apr-17 18:37:42

I won nuggets or a chicken sandwich and that's it.

The codes have won me nothing.

Look at eBay for tickets grin I spent some time looking at that. Most say 'parklane or Mayfair???' And you big not knowing grin

I collected loads from the ds's and won nothing. Massive con.

SnowBallsAreHere Wed 19-Apr-17 18:40:44

We've never got anything with the online code. But got the speaker a few years ago, and it's been useful for the kids ;).
And got a now tv 3 month subscription. Several friends have had he years now tv & box

My kids have won 2 burgers and two mc flurrys in a week over Easter.
We were away and was easy tea on way home.

mumofone1234 Wed 19-Apr-17 18:43:09

I have never been able to get to the point of being able to find out if my codes have won. The link always seems to fail. I too was wondering if this is a con confused.
Won food, though.

skyzumarubble Wed 19-Apr-17 18:47:33

I can't be bothered to check the codes - always give the tickets to some kids who are always happy to have them.

Madwoman5 Wed 19-Apr-17 18:52:47

45 entered no wins grrrrr

BarbaraofSeville Wed 19-Apr-17 18:56:34

I've won a hot drink but nothing with the online game, but I've only been to McDonald's twice during the game. I was trying to get the 10 spare properties to get a free Now TV card but I've lost some so I have to get another McDonald's lunch before the end of the promotion.

Enter them very late at night to get a better chance of winning, lunch times or early evening no chance

OhSoggyBiscuit Wed 19-Apr-17 19:30:07

I've won £5 on prezzybox, whatever that is, a free small fries/milkshake and 20% off a hotel. Last year I think I won a drink and a apple pie.

ProudBadMum Wed 19-Apr-17 19:51:35

Shall do codes on a night instead grin

foxessocks Wed 19-Apr-17 19:54:46

I've got my codes ready to input during the night feeds tonight I shall report back! Having a non sleeping baby might be useful!

amysmummy12345 Wed 19-Apr-17 19:56:38

We've won a 6x4" photo book

Mrsemcgregor Wed 19-Apr-17 20:32:20

Won 2 sundaes, a medium drink and 20% off boohoo.com. Nothing on the codes and nothing in property's yet.

ChipsCheeseAndBeans Wed 19-Apr-17 20:46:04

Won a £5 with online codes

scaryclown Wed 19-Apr-17 20:50:14

they are silly. in the early 1990s there was a macdonalds promo where you won nearly all the time, shakes, burgers, fries etc, but you couldn't use them in the same store on the same day - there were people all over manchester touring macdonalds for weeks. By the end of it everyone in manchester, especially students knew exactly where all the macdonalds were and how to get to them on which bus routes and had developed a nice uber-familiarity with meeting friends in macdonalds- an amazingly successful promotion
this code stuff is rubbish

EastMidsMummy Wed 19-Apr-17 20:52:40

It's not a con if you don't win a prize draw.

bigredtractor Wed 19-Apr-17 20:54:24

I won £20 yesterday! star

juls1888 Wed 19-Apr-17 21:04:58

I won £20 last year, not won anything this year.

edwinbear Wed 19-Apr-17 21:05:19

I won £10 from the codes a week or so ago.
