When you order a Big Mac at McDonald’s, the only thing on your mind is whether you want fries with that (the answer is yes, duh), and if you’re in more of a Coke or Sprite mood. But what if you could get a side of bling with your Big Mac? Well, McDonald’s is giving away a very special gift this Valentine’s Day: the Bling Mac. No, it’s not a special burger — it’s an 18K gold, stackable ring with seven individual tiers of diamonds and gems.
Woah. It’s quite a sight to behold. Check it out:
This baby is worth a whopping $12,500 and was created by New York-based jewelry designer Nadine Ghosn. The Bling Mac features rows of champagne diamonds, orange sapphires, and additional diamonds and sapphires, all crafted into the shape of a big, juicy burger.
So, wondering how you can be the one to slip it on your finger for free (or perhaps present it to a loved one)? All you have to do is tweet “vows of love” to Big Mac, tagging your ode with the hashtag #BlingMacContest. No purchase is necessary, but I recommend noshing on your muse as you compose your declaration of love.
Submissions close at 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 14. The funniest and most creative vows will win their author this bling-tastic ring. Here’s all the fine print of the official rules. In addition to the ring itself, the winner will also receive a check for $4,286 to offset the cost of taxes on the prize. How thoughtful!
No purch nec. Ends 11:59:59 p.m. ET 2/14/18. 50 US/DC 13+. Rules at https://t.co/HslxKrxLDP

McDonald’s is not the only fast food chain to offer extravagant prizes in honor of Valentine’s Day this year. Dunkin’ Donuts is holding the #DDLove Contest until Feb. 15, and the winner will receive a free trip to any U.S. city that has a Dunkin’ Donuts location (including Hawaii!).
Contestants must post to Instagram about how their friendship or relationship “runs on Dunkin’.” Posts should include a photo and the hashtag #DDLoveContest.
For those who don’t need a fancy ring or a big trip to show their love, a number of fast food joints and restaurants are offering special deals for Valentine’s Day, including a romantic tableside service dinner at White Castle. Sometimes simpler is better, after all.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
