Imagine walking into a McDonald’s, plunking down a special card and never having to pay for anything.
It turns out that can actually happen. Just ask Rob Lowe, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, who all reportedly have card a “McGold Card” that gets them unlimited free food at their local Micky D’s.
Lowe showed off his on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last year, noting how he got it from a friend. As it notes on the card, his buddy is McDonald’s franchisee David Peterson, whose father, Herb, invented the Egg McMuffin in 1972 at one of his California McDonald’s locations, according to The New York Times.
The card Lowe flashed says that it’s good for unlimited food for a year, and only at locations in Santa Barbara and Goleta, California. That’s because it was issued by Peterson and not the McDonald’s corporation. It’s up to the franchise owner to decide if the card is good for a limited amount of time or for life More.
