You could win $100 from McDonald's on Black Friday

Did McDonald's just come up with the greatest Black Friday promotion of all time? Quite possibly.

On Friday, Nov. 24, when your stomach is finally maybe ready for a snack after the Thanksgiving feast, from 10 a.m. to noon, a random McDonald's in southeastern Wisconsin will give out a $100 Visa gift card to a random guest every 10 minutes.

This promotion has everything. For starters, intrigue. Which McDonald's location can I get the gift card at? I am genuinely curious – and willing to drive to multiple locations to find the right set of Golden Arches. And at the end of those golden rainbows, of course, there is also a great prize. A $100 Visa gift card would mean my Christmas shopping could be done without putting a dent in my bank account. And finally, this promotion is perfect because my McMuffin-addled brain is dumb enough to think I can beat the system. Think about it: I can easily go to multiple McDonald's, get something off the dollar menu at each and then, if I get the gift card, I will have spent maybe $10 for a return of $100. I'm not a math guy, but I think they call those big-money margins.

Oh, and any drive-thru guest at this secret McDonald's location will also get a free Peppermint Mocha card.

So, take a break from storming the local Best Buy for sales and stomping all over the poor schmoes in your way, stop at a McDonald's and maybe actually make some money instead of spending it this Black Friday.
