How to Enter the Sweepstakes:

(i) Enter Via Text Message: During the Sweepstakes Period, you may begin the entry process by texting the Code from a Game Piece with an NFL team helmet to 84567.

(ii) Enter at Website: http://www.playatmcd.com the Participant may proceed to enter a valid unused Code from a game piece.

Each 10-digit Code that you text to the Short Code (84567) or enter at the Website (PlayatMcD.com) is automatically associated with the NFL team helmet shown on that Game Piece. (The 11-digit codes found on Instant Win Food Prize Game Pieces and Instant Win $50 Cash Prize Game Pieces are for Sponsor’s internal use during the redemption process and are not valid for Sweepstakes Entry.) There are a total of thirty-two (32) NFL teams and each week on NBC Sunday Night Football (“Sunday Night Football”), one team, for the purposes of this promotion only, called the lucky team (“Lucky Team”) for the Weekly Entry Period that just ended, will be announced during the NBC Sunday Night Football Pre-Game Show. The announced Lucky Team will be identified by its home city (e.g., Chicago Bears would be identified as Chicago and New York Jets would be identified as New York AFC). Any Code associated with that Weekly Entry Period’s Lucky Team that was entered prior to the deadline for the Weekly Entry Period (i.e., on or prior to 11:59:59 p.m. ET on the Saturday prior to Sunday Night Football [“ Weekly Code Entry Deadline”]) is included in that weekly drawing for a chance to win Prizes, and if any such Code is not selected to win a Sweepstakes Prize for that Weekly Entry Period, it will remain eligible for any subsequent remaining Weekly Entry Period drawings (should the team associated with such Code again be chosen as the Lucky Team for a later Weekly Entry Period, if any) and the drawing for the Final Drawing Entry Period. Any Code that is not associated with the Lucky Team will not be included in that week’s Sweepstakes Prize drawing.

This was an awesome promo last year with the Madden: XboxOne promo where they gave out like 1,500 Xbox Ones that were "Day One" editions and had free online AMOE throughout the promo. Might have to stop by and just get a hashbrown a few times a week for this.

Best McDs sweepstakes was 1984's "When the USA wins, you win [digibuzzme.com]!" They rigged it so that events usually won by the Soviet Union would have the big prizes. Then the Soviets boycotted, the USA won everything and I ate free Big Macs all summer.

Phokus, I remember that olympic promotion. All you basically had to do was buy a few items, and you were set on free McDonalds. The free items you were given would win more free items. It was actaully quite hilarious. Hard to believe that was 30+ years ago.

So is McDonalds ok with me just paying for the hash browns to get the codes without me actually taking the food? I never eat there and don't want to start now. LOL I'd like to buy about $20.00 worth of hash browns.
