7. How do I redeem a Food Prize?
McDonald’s Food Prizes may be redeemed at the counter, at the kiosk or at the Drive-Thru at any participating McDonald’s restaurant in Canada on or before December 5, 2017.
- Before placing a food order, a Participant must inform a McDonald’s restaurant counter person or, if applicable, a Drive-Thru McDonald’s person that the Participant wishes to redeem a Food Prize. Then, the Participant should present his/her potential winning original Food Prize Game Stamp to that McDonald’s person.
- If a Participant wishes to use a kiosk to order a McDonald’s food item for which the Participant possesses a potential winning “Instant Win” Game Stamp for a McDonald’s food item, that Participant should go to a kiosk and select the “Offers and Coupons” button on the top right side of any of the menus and then select MONOPOLY®. A screen will appear which informs the Participant that he/she will be redirected to the front counter for payment and Game Stamp validation, but first the Participant should continue to place his/her food order. The Participant will confirm he/she would like to continue. If the Participant elects to continue, the next screen will display all “Instant Win” Food Prizes and the Participant should select the “Instant Win” Food Prize which the Participant wishes to redeem against the Participant’s potential winning “Instant Win” Game Stamp. Once the Participant has selected that Food Prize, it will be added to the order basket. A Participant may wish to redeem only his/her Game Stamp for the applicable “Instant Win” Food Prize, or may wish to continue to order additional food items. Once the Participant completes and confirms his/her food order, a receipt will be printed which the Participant must take to any register at the front counter to pick up his/her food order. When the Participant goes to the front counter register, he/she should present the receipt and the original potential winning Food Prize Game Stamp to the McDonald’s counter person.
Note : A Food Prize may be redeemed only during the hours that food item is served and only on a visit subsequent to the visit during which the Participant obtains the applicable Game Stamp for that Food Prize. No “Instant Win” Game Stamp for a Food Prize is valid in combination with any other offer or discount. Only one (1) Food Prize redemption is permitted per Participant per visit to a participating McDonald’s restaurant. All visits to the same restaurant within a two-hour period are deemed to constitute a single visit.
See Rule 7.C. of the Official Rules for further details concerning Food Prize redemption.

To claim this Prize, a Participant with an “Instant Win” Game Stamp that indicates a $10 or $150 McDonald’s® Card Prize first must visit a participating McDonald’s restaurant in Canada and ask to see the McDonald’s restaurant manager to obtain a blank McDonald’s® Card.

The Participant will need Internet access, a valid email address, the blank McDonald’s® Card, and the Participant’s potential winning “Instant Win” Game Stamp in order to start to redeem this Prize at the Online Redemption Site (www.iwonatmcd.ca).
Once at the Online Redemption Site, a Participant who is a potential winner of this Prize will complete the stipulated Online Prize claim process including entering the number which appears on the blank McDonald’s® Card (see above how to obtain such a card) and correctly answering the Skill-Testing Question (without assistance of any kind, whether electronic, mechanical or other), in the space provided.

14. Is there a Property Tracker for the 2017 Canadian Game like last year?
Yes! There is a Property Tracker . The Canadian Game does not provide an “Online Game.” The Canadian Game, however, does provide the convenience of an online property tracker (“Property Tracker”) and Rewards. During the Game Period and until 11:59:59 p.m. ET on December 5, 2017, a Participant can use the Property Tracker at mcdpromotion.ca to track the “Collect and Win” properties that he/she collects in the Canadian Game and to log Codes from all Game Stamps which the Participant obtains up to that time. When a Participant successfully enters ten (10) Codes from any Game Stamps in the Property Tracker, a message will appear that the Participant has earned a reward – an item or discount (each a “Reward” and collectively “Rewards”). There is a maximum of four (4) Reward levels available for a Participant to achieve . The Property Tracker is available to enable any Participant, 13 years of age or older who chooses to do so, to enter the Code from a property/airport/highway Game Stamp the Participant has obtained in the Canadian Game. The Property Tracker is not required to play the Canadian Game, but provides Participants with a convenient way to log and keep track of the properties/airports/highways they collect.
Note: The Property Tracker is only a convenience offered to Participants who are thirteen (13) years of age and older. For the purposes of making a valid Prize claim, no entry of a Code in the Property Tracker is, or shall be, accepted by the Redemption Centre as, proof of the existence or possession or ownership, at any time, by a Participant of any Game Stamp or Stamps which bear a Code which is entered by that Participant in the Property Tracker. Even though a Participant uses the Property Tracker to keep a record/log of the Participant’s collected properties/airports/highways, the Participant MUST RETAIN ALL OF THE PARTICIPANT’S ORIGINAL GAME STAMPS because the Participant may be required to produce one or more original Game Stamps in order to make a valid claim for a Prize in the Game. Entry of a Code in the Property Tracker will not be accepted as a substitute, or proxy, for an original Game Stamp.
15. How do I sign in to the Property Tracker?
A Participant who is thirteen (13) years of age or older and who wishes to use the Property Tracker to track/log his/her properties/airports/highways first must go to mcdpromotion.ca and create a “My Account” that can be used to keep track of the properties/airports/highways which the Participant collects. To begin, the Participant must enter a valid Code and click on “GO!” to be taken to a registration page. A first-time Participant should click on “REGISTER” and then complete the registration for a My Account [first name, email address, confirm email address and create a password (passwords are case sensitive and should have six (6) to fifteen (15) letters and numbers but no special characters or symbols), then confirm the password and enter the first three digits of the Participant’s postal code]. A Participant then must check the box to consent to the collection of personal information for the purpose of administering the Property Tracker, and if the Participant is a Minor, confirm that his/her parent or guardian authorizes such consent. The Participant who has reached the age of majority also has the right but not the obligation to check a box if the Participant wishes to receive promotional-related emails from the Sponsor. To complete the My Account registration, the Participant then should enter the Security Code and click on “REGISTER”; the Participant then will receive an email confirming his/her My Account registration. Once the Participant has created his/her “My Account”, the Participant’s email address will be his/her username and he/she will enter that username and the password created during registration each time he/she returns to the Property Tracker to enter a new Code(s) to track/log a property/airport/highway.
16. How do I change my password when using the Property Tracker?
To change a password for the Property Tracker, Participant must first click on the “I Forgot My Password?” link on the sign-in page located under the red “SIGN IN” button, then enter the email address the Participant used to register with, and click the red “CONTINUE” button. An email with directions to reset the password will be sent to the Participant’s registered email address. Reset password emails should take approximately five (5) to fifteen (15) minutes to send. If the Participant has not received his/her email in this time frame, the Participant should check his/her spam folder. Click on the red “RESET PASSWORD” link in the email, or copy the URL link located on the email and paste it into a web browser. After clicking the red “RESET PASSWORD” button, or pasting the reset password link into a web browser, the Participant will be prompted to reset his/her password. Please note passwords must be six (6) to fifteen (15) characters in length, letters and numbers only. No special characters are allowed. Once a Participant has created and confirmed his/her new password, click the red “RESET PASSWORD” link. A reset password confirmation page will be served and from there a Participant can click on the “HOME” button to return to the Home Page where he/she will automatically be signed in and can continue entering Codes.
17. When can I track Codes using the Property Tracker?
The Property Tracker is available beginning at 12:00 a.m. ET on October 11, 2017, through 11:59:59 p.m. ET on December 5, 2017.
