Get the Shaker Side Salad instead of fries

In the past, big fries and drinks would be accompanied by more stickers than medium fries. But, in order to not appear to be encouraging the consumption of unhealthy foods, McDonald’s changed things up in the year 2019.

All fries that are served as part of an eating plan or not, come only with 2 stickers. But those that are Shaker Side Salads, Vegetable Bags, and Fruit Bags (all available as side dishes) each come with 3 stickers which means they’re not only healthier but also boost your odds of winning as well!

In 2019, we received a number of our readers reach us to tell us they hadn’t received any stickers in their salads – one of them even said it was because the McDonald’s staff had told them that the salads aren’t served with the pieces of the game.

We thought that this was odd because it’s the officially-approved McDonald’s Monopoly rules that stipulate that they must. We contacted McDonald’s via Twitter (see below for more details) and, surprise they said that it was confirmed that Shaker Side Salads ought to include stickers. If you don’t receive some, you’re in your right to request some!


Avoid Big Macs and McNuggets

It may be a bit painful for us to tell you this if your goal is to maximize the number of stickers per dollar Avoid the Big Macs as well as McNuggets with a vengeance.

We all know that #nugzlife is the life however, as the table above shows, Big Macs and McNuggets are essentially none Monopoly stickers…

Yes, the side and beverage you select are likely to have stickers – but considering that almost every other man has the same three stickers, we believe it’s worthwhile to give up the old favorites while you’re playing Monopoly promotion is on.

Use McDonald’s tricks and vouchers

Making your meals minimum cost is always a plus however, do you have the ability to combine McD’s money-savings along with their Monopoly promotion to make the most value from your dinner? Yes, you can.

Take advantage of you McDonald’s students discount by presenting your student ID at the counter and you’ll receive a free McFlurry, the original McFlurry, Mayo Chicken or Cheeseburger at the time you buy any food item.

The problem is that there’s no way to tell if these freebies include stickers. However, in the event that you do receive something at your usual meal, you might be able to eat enough food for two people if you win the student freebie as well.

It’s also possible to use our secret trick to transform outdated McDonald’s receipts to infinite PS1.99 big Mac as well as fries. Of of course, Big Macs do not come with any labels – however, the fries do have them, and when you’re eating a full meal (minus the drink) for PS1.99 You can’t really complain.

Also, look out for coupons on bus tickets or in the newspapers (like Metro) that offer a deal (like Metro) that can net you fries and a burger for PS1.99 as well. The majority of the meals offered by this method don’t come with labels, however fries are.

Womble to get more stickers

If you’re a regular fan in the magazine Save the Student, you may have read our tutorial on wombling which is basically making use of other people’s trash to collect free items. This method is especially effective when playing McDonald’s Monopoly, as some players don’t bother to check for stickers!
