    I've won a sugar donut and porridge, haven't actually redeemed them yet though. Also got 20% off buy a gift and 2 cinema tickets/love film trial offer. For streets I have Oxford Street, Whitehall and Pentonville Road, so nothing exciting. None of my online codes won anything

    Trivial Pursuit was much better. Monopoly is just silly - there's no actual point to collecting the "sets" - after God knows how many years of doing this, I don't think anyone believes that they are "just" one property away from winning three helicopters and a Ferrari.

    I've won 2 apple pies and got 2 park lanes, and have only been there once so far.

    There are alwaysd so many Park Lanes, I imagined there would be like no Mayfairs!

    Thing is there will be thousands and thousands, and more, of that sticker and all other non-rare ones. Only 1 of each set will be rare, as the original post states. Essentially brings people into 'Omg ive got 2 of the 3 i need to win a car" in which they may end up buying Mcdonalds more in order to try and get the third despite that one being the really rare one where they probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than finding it.

    Makes it even better for Mcdonalds as im sure only a small amount of people actually care about it and chuck it away, thus meaning they probably dont end up even giving away even 10% of the costs of the total prizes they have set out.

    All i won last time this was all happening was instant food prizes

    Instant food prizes are the reason I go to McDonalds whilst this promo is running.

    Medium 3 peice chicken select meal is good as you get 4 stickers with it! and its not much more expensive than a big mac meal.

    I had one Thursday but still didnt win anything

    That's the reason the big prize is 50k rather than the 500k that could be won last year. No one won the 500k last year so it's been split into 10 50ks instead so that it's easier to win. Saying that, last year only 3 of the 10 cars were won, damn the people who through away the winning stickers

    But as someone works there, I hate hate hate having to sweep the floor with all these stickers floating around!!

    why were you so stupid as to 'give it to him to look after'

    why couldn't you look after your own ticket.

    I go McDonalds regularly anyway, so for me it's a bonus, and I hope to get the free meals prizes

    if however you are just "paying to play" then it is a bit silly

    Don't always believe what you read in the paper I think people high up in the company know what prizes were won and which weren't..
