Giveaway {$20 McDonald’s Gift Card & Coupon, 5 Winners}

Spread Cheer with Arch Cards

With the holiday season upon us, McDonald’s is celebrating with McCafé beverages – including the new French Vanilla Latte and seasonal favorites Peppermint Mocha and Peppermint Hot Chocolate.

Their new French Vanilla Latte features a smooth espresso blend combined with a newly-developed sweet, creamy vanilla flavor and freshly steamed milk.  And, their McCafé Peppermint Mocha is the perfect blend of smooth espresso, chocolate syrup with a hint of peppermint and freshly steamed milk.  The Peppermint Hot Chocolate includes freshly steamed milk, rich chocolate syrup and a hint of peppermint. Both beverages are handcrafted and completely customizable to accommodate individual tastes and preferences.  And, we all know that moms need the fuel of Peppermint Mochas to get their Christmas shopping finished!

On the hunt for stocking stuffers?  You can grab a McDonald’s Arch Card, a pre-paid card that gives you a quick and convenient way to pay at McDonald’s.  I was thrilled that they come in denominations as low as $5, so it’s an affordable gift for any budget!   For a larger gift, you can pair an Arch Card with a plate of cookies or a coffee mug.  After all, who doesn’t enjoy a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate on a cold winter day?!  My husband loves the convenience of stopping at McDonald’s on his way to work to get a small coffee or latte, so he just might find an Arch Card in his stocking!

Arch Cards can be purchased for the first time or reloaded later at participating McDonald’s restaurants nationwide. They are also available at retailers including Safeway, Kroger, SuperValu and Ahold.  Better yet, McDonald’s Arch Cards never expire, and there are no penalty or dormancy fees.

    My favorite Christmas movie is “Love Actually.” A modern classic, in my opinion. I cannot go through this season without watching it at least twice, and I just rediscovered my soundtrack, too, when pulling out Christmas decorations!
