I've only won non food prices twice since they started Monopoly, a few years back getting Baltic and Mediterranean was worth $5, and way way back during the first ever McDonald's Monopoly game I won a $1000 Sears gift Certificate.
I have to admit, that one wasn't really a legitimate win, I was working at McD's back then and the game pieces weren't attached to the cups and fries like they are now, they were little breakopen game pieces that were handed out separately and one night I filled up a huge bag of game pieces, must have been 2 or 3 thousand of them, and hit the Sears gist certificate (the Electric Company piece if I recall). I ended up selling it for $150, a lot of money back then as I was making about $3 an hour.

Hash Browns are the cheapest way to get them (they're $1.00 in most US markets)

Other items off the top of my head are medium and large drinks, large fries, Big Mac, not sure what else.

Fricken won a quarter pounder today, moving up in life.

On a side note. About two years ago Mountain Dew was giving away a free Camaro, well long story short I knew the lady who actually won it. Thought it was pretty cool.

The redboxes are pretty good, I have to ask though, can I have the coke points? I don't use them but I know someone who might

So I'm in taco bell one day with Friends and I get the Super Mario piece which is part of million dollars. Of course I'm thinking Mario? Common piece since he is the center piece and thought nothing of it.
So I throw away the piece and few weeks later I'm in taco bell again
And this time I'm looking at the back of the game piece for odds of getting the stickers..
*Cue the Music*
Mario was 1:16,000,000

True fu*king Story....
Funny you should say that. I had a similar experience at Taco Bell. Back in 1999, they ran a Star Wars game where you had to collect medallions. I had a bunch of them....And one day, I had gone somewhere with my sister and her friend and then afterwards we went to Taco Bell. Now you needed to collect two medallions to win $1000. You needed to collect Mace Windou and Yoda. Now mind you...I don't know much about Star Wars. So the piece I ended up pulling there was Yoda. I didn't have my game board with me and for some reason I thought I had that medallion. I mean, who would think anything other than they have just a common piece. So I get home and I look at my board...sure enough as it is, Yoda was the rare piece. Still kicking myself to this day.

At taco bell like 15 years ago I won a $300-$400 roller blade package. I sold them to my Mom who gave them to my brother because he could use them. I never did. Reminds me of that old joke

Whats the worst part about roller blading?

Terrible as usual. The decent food which is halfways good for you costs 3-4x as much as the really greasy stuff. I can get a small grilled chicken sandwich for $4 or 4 double cheeseburgers for the same price...doesn't make a lick of sense.

The whole "1:4 wins" free food is bull too IMO. I'm like 0 for my last 16 game pieces...I'm eating cheap/unhealthy garbage just to get the pieces (McNuggets) and win nothing. I'm done with these f-ers.

Also, why does 10 McNuggets cost $4.30 and 20 McNuggets cost $5? I just bought the 20 and didn't finish them so I could get a couple more game pieces which again yielded nothing.
