playatmcd.com was down all day, but just went live with this promotion. Looks like you need to download the McDonalds app on ios/android to enter the contest.

During the promotion they will give away 100 Switch's bundled with Mario Kart Deluxe

How to enter: Buy something at McDonalds using the app during the promotional period to enter. Get double entries if you buy a happy meal ( They want kids to have a higher chance of winning these )

more detailed info can be found at playatmcd.com


Side note: If all McDonalds is giving away during this promotion is 100 consoles, that seems like a pretty weak promotion considering Mtn. Dew would give away thousands of consoles during their promotion.

Only 100 switches?! What are these, "golden tickets"? Hell, there must be 40-50 McDonalds in my city alone! Can't imagine how many in the US!

I can't tell which of the posts in here are serious and which are sarcasm or joking and frankly it's pretty hilarious either way.

Here's the toys:

Well theres your casual Mario Kart/Switch marketing, this game will be huge might even sell the same amount or more than the Wii U version.

Too many free consoles would dilute the value of the brand.

You're lucky they are giving 100, it should be 5 like Willy Wonka did.

Do you seriously think you would have significantly better chances of winning if they shipped 1000 or 10000 consoles ?

All of these will go to McDonald Employees anyway.

So it's 100. No big deal. McD's is nothing more than an advertising apparatus for Nintendo. This promotion will insure that waaaaay more than 100 folks purchase the bundle at retail.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Need to be able to win at least a million Switches via McD lottery to satisfy.

Well scratch that... We would have people complaining about not being able to buy them in stores because they are giving it away for this promo.

Yep. Who cares man. It's just a sweepstakes thing. That's what they want to do then cool. I've played Pepsi, Monopoly and Coke sweepstakes in real life where you could 1 person could win $1 million.

Its not entitlement or crying. Its more of a shock. Not sure of the last multibillion dollar company giving away 100 things in sweepstakes. Thats all

My thoughts exactly.

I am about to start eating a boat load of happy meals.

On a related note, I am about to start eating kids meals from Subway and other places. Trying to lose weight and still eat junk food.
