On another note I am shocked these go for anything on Ebay. I had no idea, I mean why bother just go buy a Big Mac and get some pieces for free if you want them so bad. It's not like any are that rare, I would imagine they print up a ton of most of them and then print like one of each of the last ones you need for a big prize. They want people to think they are close so they keep buying.
The pieces aren't free if you buy a Big Mac, as you had to buy the Big Mac.

And to the OP, just the normal food stuff...

I was surprised to see how much these go for on Ebay too.

There's a fine line with eBay too.

Most people get away with saying people are simply paying for the postage and that the game pieces "themselves" are free.

Shady to say the least.

Man, I can't drink those things ... they are delicious but come with a terrible headache. This coming from a guy who drinks 3 cups of coffee a day.

When I was a kid, I won a free jersey and hat from a Sprite cap. This was back when they actually put the actual prize names under the caps instead of those stupid codes.

I know a guy who brags about his GF being a manager at Taco Bell at the time when the XBOX 360 came out and they had scratch offs for a free XBOX.

She stole a bunch of them from work one night, and he scratched them all off and actually hit.



As for McDonalds, never won squat.

This isn't Monopoly related but I won a free NES game from a Mountain Dew cap as a kid (well my Dad did).

I can't remember the year exactly but Pepsi had a promotion going where you could win one of three NES games - Super Mario Bros. 2, Dragon Warrior, or Tetris. The cap only told you that you won a game and Pepsi determined which game you would get. I got Dragon Warrior : (

It was free though so I didn't complain.

I won le Royale with cheese today.

This thread did get me to remember an old score. It would have been around 1980 to 1983 and my mom bought me and my three younger brothers some Topps baseball cards. They had a card in every pack where you had to scratch off three circles. You were a winner if you got a single, double, triple or a home run. My youngest brother got a triple. It was good for a really nice wood bat - I can't remember the manufacturer but I know it is still at my parent's house. They were very long odds.

Any old timers remember what year that promotion was?

I mean free with purchase, you are buying a Big Mac no costs are added for the pieces. Also referring to how people are paying $2-5 for a couple pieces when you could spend that on lunch and get the pieces with the burger.

My fiance and I went not really thinking about the Monopoly thing, so we didn't pay attention to what you need to get to get the game pieces. We ended up with zero pieces. It seems like when I was a kid they were on everything lol

It was nice last week for me. We get a free big mac the day after a Broncos win so my sister and I went last Monday. 2 free big macs, 2 medium drinks, and a large fry to share. 12 pieces for about $4, granted we paid for the food not the pieces lol
