McDonald’s Monopoly 2024 – How to Win

Whenever McDonald’s Monopoly rolls around, it seems like the entire country goes into a frenzy, especially students, who get super competitive. You’ve probably heard of it before: it’s a competition where you collect stickers from special menu items to win various prizes. Just a heads up, you’ve got to be 18 or older to join in on the fun.

If you’re anything like us, you might use McDonald’s Monopoly as an excuse to indulge in way too many fries in a month. But hey, while you’re at it, why not aim to win big too?

In true Save the Student fashion, we’ve done all the legwork to help you maximise your chances of winning. 🍟💪

When is McDonald’s Monopoly 2024?

It’s not yet clear when the McDonald’s Monopoly scheme will run in 2024.

In 2023, it ran from Wednesday 6th September until Tuesday 17th October. As has been the case in recent years, you were able to store all the stickers you collected online on the McDonald’s Monopoly website or app.

Gone are the days of filling your wallet to the brim with those pesky (and greasy) stickers along with your fold-up Monopoly board!

Winning with McDonald’s Monopoly can be pretty exciting! 🎉 But with so many prizes and ways to win, it can also get a bit confusing. 😅 Before you toss those stickers from your burger, make sure you read our simplified tips below.

In simple terms, there are four ways to win at McDonald’s Monopoly:

1. Instant Win Prizes

This is your best shot at winning and who doesn’t love scoring some free food? 🍔🍟 It’s pretty straightforward: just grab the peel-off sticker that says “hash brown or cheesy bacon flatbread” or “Big Mac or McChicken Sandwich” (or whatever else) and take it to the cashier before the expiry date. Then, enjoy your freebie!

In 2023, there were over 80,000,000 of these up for grabs, so your chances of snagging one were pretty high. Actually, in 2022, 165 McDonald’s Monopoly prizes were won every minute! 😲

You could win all sorts of goodies, like chicken nuggets, hash browns, apple pies, burgers, fries, and plenty more. There were even some non-food prizes available, like cash, cinema tickets, and the coveted McDonald’s Gold Card. Plus, some of the property set prizes (we’ll talk about those below) were also available as instant wins, including wireless earbuds and a holiday. 🎁

2. Online Prizes

If you come across a property sticker during McDonald’s Monopoly, you’ve got a shot at winning online prizes too! 🎉 Just scan the sticker or enter the codes in your McDonald’s app or on the website. Plus, every time you added a property to your app, you got an extra chance to win with the Digital Peel!

The prizes varied, ranging from £5 to £100 in cash, or you could score some non-cash goodies like gift cards or food vouchers to use at McDonald’s restaurant’s. But wait, there’s more! There were also some major prizes up for grabs, like £100,000 in cash or even a MINI electric car! 🚗💨

3. McDonald’s Gold Card

Here’s a special highlight: as part of McDonald’s Monopoly 2023, there was an incredible prize up for grabs through the McDonald’s Gold Card.

McDonald’s offered 2,000 lucky winners the chance to score a Gold Card during the Monopoly promotion in 2023. And let me tell you, it’s quite the treat! If you were fortunate enough to snag one, you’d get a free Maccies meal once a week, every week for an entire year.

One of our Save the Student readers actually won a Gold Card in the first week of the Monopoly promotion and kindly shared some pictures with us. So yes, it’s absolutely possible to land this most coveted of prizes! 🍔✨

4. Property ‘Set’ Prizes

We’re all familiar with the rules of Monopoly: once you’ve bought all the properties of one colour, you double the rent you charge. But in McDonald’s Monopoly, completing a full set can be even more rewarding.

Yet, don’t assume that having two of a certain colour guarantees a win. Typically, there’s one property per set that’s rarer than the rest. So if you come across any of these rare ones in your McDonald’s meal, hold onto them tightly! 🏠💰

The best way to boost your odds of winning prizes with McDonald’s Monopoly is to collect more stickers. But don’t worry, you don’t have to buy loads of burgers to do it! 🍔✨

Here are a couple of simple ways to get more stickers:

Which McDonald’s Meals Have the Most Monopoly Sackers?

If you’re aiming to collect the maximum number of stickers, you might need to tweak your usual order a bit. Some items on the McDonald’s menu don’t come with stickers at all, so it’s best to avoid these if you’re hoping to win big!

Here’s a list of the food and drinks that came with stickers in 2023:

  • Big Flavour Wraps
  • The Spicy Veggie One
  • Big Tasty
  • Big Tasty with bacon
  • Chicken and bacon salad or chicken salad
  • Chicken Selects (3 or 5)
  • Medium or large fries
  • McPlant
  • Flake raspberry McFlurry
  • Flake chocolate McFlurry
  • Mozzarella Dippers
  • McCrispy
  • McSpicy
  • Soft drink
  • Caramel ice frappé
  • Mango and pineapple smoothie
  • Frozen strawberry lemonade.

How Many Monopoly Stickers Does Each McDonald’s Menu item Have?

In 2023, every McDonald’s Monopoly game piece label came with two game pieces. These could either be two property game pieces or one property game piece and one instant win game piece. 🎲🎟️

Avoid Big Macs and regular McNuggets

As much as it pains us to say this, if you’re aiming to get the most stickers for your money, it’s best to skip the Big Macs and McNuggets.

As the list above shows, Big Macs and McNuggets typically don’t come with any Monopoly stickers at all.

Sure, the side and drink you choose might still have stickers. But considering that nearly every other main item comes with stickers, we think it’s worth passing on the old favourites while the Monopoly promotion is happening. 🍟✨

Use McDonald’s Tricks and Vouchers

Getting your meal for as little as possible is always a win. But can you combine McDonald’s money-saving deals with the Monopoly promotion to get the most out of your meal? You bet you can! 💰

You can use our sneaky trick to turn old McDonald’s receipts into endless £1.99 Big Mac and fries deals. Even though Big Macs don’t come with stickers, the side could still have some. And getting a full meal (minus a drink) for just £1.99 is a pretty sweet deal.

Alternatively, keep an eye out for offers on bus tickets and in newspapers (like the Metro) that score you a burger and fries for £1.99 as well. Usually, the mains available with this trick don’t come with stickers, but the fries sure do! 🍔🍟

And as we mentioned earlier, we’ve also got a complete guide to scoring free and cheap McDonald’s. 🍔💸

Womble to Get More Stickers

If you’re a regular reader of Save the Student, you might have come across our guide to wombling, basically, using other people’s trash to snag yourself freebies. This trick can be especially handy during McDonald’s Monopoly, as some folks overlook checking for stickers.

Often, people only take the instant win food vouchers and leave behind the online codes or property stickers. So, it’s worth taking a peek if you spot any discarded McDonald’s packaging.

It’s best to be discreet about wombling for Monopoly stickers. If staff happen to notice you wombling, it’s probably a good idea to use any stickers you find at a different McDonald’s—or maybe wait a bit before returning.

Wombling isn’t illegal, but you might find that some staff members take issue with it. So tread carefully! 🚶‍♂️🍔

Sell or Buy Your Stickers on eBay

This might not be the most reliable method, but hey, you could get lucky!

While it’s highly unlikely that you’ll find rare McDonald’s Monopoly stickers for sale on eBay, you never know. If you happen to come across any rare stickers or need to complete your set, eBay could be worth checking out. Who knows, you might just strike gold! 🌟🤞

Final Words

In the world of McDonald’s Monopoly, it’s all about the excitement! Whether you’re collecting stickers or enjoying a tasty meal, embrace the fun. Keep an eye out for rare pieces and savour every moment. So, enjoy the adventure and who knows? You might just be the next lucky winner! 🍔🎉
