As part of McDonald’s’ holiday promotional event — SZN of Sharing — the top prize will get you one of those much coveted and fabled cards, which entitles the holder to free McDonald’s meals for life: two meals per week for 50 years.

The winner will also be able to choose three friends who will receive a card as well, “because as true fans know, McDonald’s just tastes better when shared,” the company said in a press release.

Starting Dec. 5, every purchase using the McDonald’s App gets you one step closer to the card, the company said.

“Our fans have been fascinated by the lore of the McGold Card and if it really exists. And now, we’ll make this McDonald’s legend a reality for our fans by giving them the ultimate holiday gift — a chance to win a card and then share access to it with three of their family or friends,” Tariq Hassan, McDonald’s USA exec, said in the release. “Just by using the McDonald’s App, everyone can experience the joy that comes with sharing McDonald’s this holiday season.”
