Yes it’s that time of year where McDonalds runs it’s annual monopoly promotion and I post the rare stickers in a not at all cunning bid to increase my ad revenue. And I also open this blog up to some of the most stupid people on god’s green earth to comment and be ridiculed for the stupidity of their comments.
So here are the rare stickers
Brown – iPod Docking Station – Old Kent Road (50,000 Rare Stickers)
Light Blue – £250 Gift Voucher – Euston Road (300 Rare Stickers)
Purple – Samsung Galaxy Y Pro – Northumberland Avenue (500 Rare Stickers)
Orange – HD Camcorder – Marlborough Street (500 Rare Stickers)
Red – Weekend Break – Strand (700 Rare Stickers)
Yellow – iPad – Coventry Street (550 Rare Stickers)
Green – Mini Cooper – Bond Street (8 Rare Stickers)
Dark Blue – £50k – Mayfair (8 Rare Stickers)
Stations – PS3 – Liverpool St Station (450 Rare Stickers)
Now at present these are currently listed as being the same stickers as last year until I can confirm either way if there has been any variation in the stickers (there hasn’t the last two years though because, as an employee confirmed to us last year, some idiots tried to use previous non rare stickers to claim when McDonalds did vary the stickers so they decided to stick with the same ones to help save these idiots from themselves)
Based on the comments I’ve received the last two years the following serves as an FAQ
Q. I have park lane. Who has mayfair and wants to split the prize with me?
A. You have park lane, I have park lane. EVERYBODY has park lane. There are millions of park lane stickers all of which are worth less than 1p. There are 8 mayfair stickers which are worth the value of the jackpot prize minus less than 1p
Q. I have mayfair, bond street or one of the other valuable rare stickers?
A. Bully for you! Why aren’t you busy enjoying your prize rather than posting on here
Q. I have a winning sticker, how do I claim?
A. Actually feel free to post this question as I will try and help you as long as you don’t seem as stupid as some of the people who normally comment on this post however I should add that this site is in no way linked to McDonalds or the competition and merely serves as a guide (and a bid to increase my ad revenue). Your first port of contact in the event of any claim should be McDonalds themselves or their website. Winning stickers should have some instructions on how to claim and will direct you to either the store, McDonalds’ website or a phone number
Q. How many rare stickers are in circulation?
A. There are 53,016 in total rare collect to win sitckers which cover all the prize tiers. Number of stickers on each tier is listed above and ranges from a very unlikely 8 to a still fairly unlikely 50,000
Q. I need some of the non rare stickers, where can I get them?
A. If you visit any of the McDonalds in Preston and are lucky enough to sit next to me, chances are I will have already given you any common stickers that I already have. You lucky lucky thing
Q. Why do you have fewer rare stickers listed than there are prizes for that tier?
A. Some tiers have instant win stickers which instantly win the prize for that tier without needing to collect the property set. I have listed the number of collect to win stickers there are in circulation for each tier
Q. Which iPad do I win if I collect the yellow property set or obtain an instant win sticker?
A. It is a 16GB Wifi iPad 2. Which seems incredibly stingy given it is the lowest model possible and a new iPad has been released though perhaps McDonalds obtained the prizes for this tier before the new iPad was released
Q. I live in the Preston area and am looking for some inexpensive portrait photography
A. Well it just so happens that I’m a student photographer who also offers professional photography services for a much lower price than a professional photographer. Why not check out Dave Thorp Photography (END SHAMELESS PLUG)
More questions may be added if I get any particularly daft comments this year (which lets face it, I will)
