PROTIP: As a common courtesy to everyone: If you use someone's codes, please reply and say you have used them.

These two codes were already used by someone else and they didn't post here that they used them. (I luckily had one from 7-11 that I used.)
I agree wholeheartedly and that's a big pet peeve of mine, which is why I refuse to ever just post codes in a thread. I would much prefer that people stick to using PM or some other method that keeps out the lurkers. You just know this thread is being scanned 10,000 times per day by a bunch of bots looking for free codes. Guess it's up to each person, but I prefer to help out another SDer over some lurker who has never contributed a single idea.

Also, looks like late at night has at least a little better odds that middle of day (no big surprise). Couldn't get any wins from online earlier in the afternoon but between 1:30-2am got a 40 MCR and 2 redbox out of 10 codes entered so not too bad. The redbox are good for up to $1.50 so includes Blu Ray rentals as well as DVD, which is very nice as most free codes max out at $1.20. But no luck at all on the stamps; absolutely zero winners out of 16 stamps. With 1 in 4 odds, I would have thought at least a free fry or something out of that batch; hopefully gets better.

Finally, quick tip for those that don't know: you can potentially get 8 stamps on a combo meal. Order a Big Mac or Filet and large size it for the fries. Then request a medium sized drink, even though you're entitled to a large. You'll get 2 stamps on the sandwich, 4 on the fry, and 2 more on the drink. For some reason, medium drinks get stamps but not large so makes a little more sense to just stick with the medium, especially considering refills are free in most stores. Considering that mail-in for 8 stamps would be around $4 in postage, I don't consider that too bad of a deal. The other cheap way to get stamps is $1 hash browns, and I think some areas have them 2 for $1.49.

Actually each envelope will get you 4 game stamps so for every 2 postage stamps you get 4 stamps making it about $1 for 8 of them $4.60 will get you 10 postage stamps or 5 game pieces which is 20 game stamps

FYI
If you mail in for McDonalds codes, you receive the large fry 4 stamps, so postage is less than $1 for 4, less than $2 for 8. Many of us have free envelopes from rebate/rewards deals at the big box office supply stores, so mailing in is cheaper Using a smaller envelope inside of a business envelope is easier as well.

I have good luck going into buy a coke, and then harvesting from the top of trash bins as I walk by. But that's a personal choice!

I'm not fully sure if it's an additional million, but McDonalds posted something on their Twitter about "A Million Dollars May Be In Your Big Mac."

I read the rules and doesn't say anything about a return address label! I hand wrote it anyway.

As per the rules:

(viii) Collect Park Place (#451) and Boardwalk (#452) to win a prize of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000*). Two (2) prizes are available (*payable $50,000/year for 20 years, without interest). The approximate odds of collecting Park Place are 1 in 11; the approximate odds of collecting Boardwalk are 1 in 602,490,060; the approximate odds of collecting the Winning Combination (Park Place and Boardwalk) are 1 in 3,050,412,898; the approximate odds of collecting the Winning Combination (Park Place and Boardwalk) found on Big Mac are 1 in 37,955,000.

Im pretty sure there is actually 2, 1 million prizes, and one can ONLY be won on a big mac, and the other only on a smaller food prize and not a big mac. But since there are less big macs that every other food product that has stamps combined, your odds of winning on a bigmac are more along the lines of winning the lottery. Rather than along the lines of waking up one morning and realizing you have 4 legs, a pair of wings and a spiral horn growing from your forehead.

Actually each envelope will get you 4 game stamps so for every 2 postage stamps you get 4 stamps making it about $1 for 8 of them $4.60 will get you 10 postage stamps or 5 game pieces which is 20 game stamps

FYI
If you mail in for McDonalds codes, you receive the large fry 4 stamps, so postage is less than $1 for 4, less than $2 for 8. Many of us have free envelopes from rebate/rewards deals at the big box office supply stores, so mailing in is cheaper Using a smaller envelope inside of a business envelope is easier as well.
HTH
After looking at the rules, you guys are correct. McD's consider 1 game piece as 2 stamps and you get 2 game pieces (4 stamps) with each mail-in request, so thanks for the clarification. I also figured out that the 1 in 4 odds are based on game pieces so each stamp is really a 1 in 8 chance of winning; sneaky of them. So guess it's $0.92 postage for each 4 stamps via mail-in, plus cost of envelope and whatever you value your time at for filling it out. That is definitely the cheapest method but the 2 for $1.49 hash browns is pretty close, plus you would get the hash browns for a net cost of $0.57 that way. Guess if you don't like the food at all, mail-in is the way to go.
