Show up to McDonald’s with a cleanly shaven face — and you can land yourself a free McRib sandwich!

McDonald’s iconic barbecue sandwich returns to restaurants nationwide beginning Wednesday. But before the McRib’s arrival – which McDonald’s has dubbed the “sauciest moment of the year” – the fast-food is giving away 10,000 free sandwiches to hungry fans with its “Shave 4 McRib Sweepstakes.”

“Beard or no beard, prepare for the McRib with a shave – or even a facial mask – because anyone can participate, from your brother to your mother, sister-in-law or cousin’s roommate,” McDonald’s said in a news release Monday.

To enter, “post a picture of your cleanly-shaven or baby-smooth face on your public Twitter or public Instagram profile using #Shave4McRibSweepstakes and tag @mcdonalds,” the release said.

The first 10,000 entries will receive a code for a free McRib through McDelivery with Uber Eats, while supplies last.

The McRib sandwich, a seasoned boneless pork, barbecue sauce, onions and pickles on a hoagie-style bun, has had a large ‘cult’ following since debuting in 1981. The sandwich was discontinued in 1985 due to poor sales however. The sandwich came back around in 2012 and then disappeared again. Then, in 2019 the sandwich made a return to the McDonald’s menu, but only in certain locations. So today marks the first day since 2012 that the sandwich is available in all McDonald’s locations.

More information about the sweepstakes and official rules will be posted at
