Today, McDonald’s kicked off its Perfect Pair Contest where it will award one lucky Pair with $5k cash and a $5k vacation package. The contest coincides with the launch of McCafé Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, and is asking consumers to share why they are as perfect a pair as the strawberry and lemon in McDonald’s Frozen Strawberry Lemonade. Consumers are asked to “pair” up (with a partner, friend, relative, co-worker, etc.) and through Twitter, explain why they are a Perfect Pair in 140-characters or less.
Contest submissions are due no later than Sunday, May 15. After the first round, a judging panel will select 10 Finalist Pairs to compete for the Grand Prize. Two Runner-Up Pairs will also split $1,000 in McDonald’s Arch Cards. For more information, visit www.mcdonalds.com/mcdfslpairs.
