Craving free food? If you bought a Big Mac early enough on Thursday, chances are you’ll be able to get a free Big Mac.
McDonald’s is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its Big Mac with the creation of a new currency — the “MacCoin.” The MacCoin will come in five versions, one for each decade the burger has been around. More than six million of these coins will be distributed amongst 14,000 locations around the US and many more abroad. The MacCoin can be exchanged for a Big Mac until the end of 2018.
Why it’s hot:
There’s a huge craze around bitcoin, which many still visualize as a physical coin. McDonald’s is trying to ride this craze, and I’m sure it’ll help their business.
