    McDonald's just launched a new game and sweepstakes called Minion Mania, and there is a drawing for $250,000 each week for the four weeks of the contest period, plus a drawing at the end of the contest for a 4 day/3 night trip for 4 to Universal Orlando Resort and $500. Normally you have to purchase McDonald's food to enter the contest, but through 7/13/15, you can receive one entry into the week one $250,000 drawing, and one entry into the final Universal prize drawing when you enter the free code MINIONMANIA

    The $250,000-drawing is OVER already? No, I think it's extended, because I just got a 'no purchase necessary'-entry-code (to enter "before 8/17/15 at

    "); and it says, "July 7 - August 3, 2015; Must be 13+ to enter."

    I'm not a fan of the MINIONS (sequel-title characters from DESPICABLE ME), favoring Steven Spielberg's Mogwai from the `80's-favorite GREMLINS.

    What's the point of a 'no purchase necessary'-sweepstakes anyway? Is

    My original post related only to the free code MINIONMANIA needing to be entered by 7/13/15 for the first week's drawing for $250,000. As I stated, there are 4 weekly drawings of $250,000 each, but that code related only to the first week's prize and the drawing for the trip, as there are separate entry periods for each weekly cash prize drawing.

    I don't plan on watching the movie either, but I won't pass up a free chance to win $250,000=)

    Actually McDonalds is only worth for the toys and the promotions they offer.

    I wouldn't go to eat longer there, and much less to watch movies on their sponsored deals.

    However agree with you, who say not to the opportunity to win some good cash? :D
