For a limited time, McDonald’s will be offering a Whopper-ing $10 mail-in rebate for the Atari VCS (aka 2600) gaming system. I got my hands on the mail-in form from a secret source. I would load it to the Gamertell BBS computer for you to look at but it doesn’t convert to ASCII very well.
In addition to the $10 rebate, the form also offers $3 rebates on 15 great Atari cartridges including:
- Air-Sea Battle
- Circus Atari
- Maze Craze
- Missile Command
- Night Driver
- Space Invaders
- Video Pinball
- Yars’ Revenge
All games and the VCS must be purchased between August 15 and October 15, 1982. You’ll be able to pick up the rebate forms at McDonald’s. It is highly unlikely that Sears will carry the forms, but you never know. You can use the form for one VCS system and any number of cartridges.
You will need to cut the numbered tab from your game box and include two “zap” pieces from the McDonald’s/Atari scratch off game along with the mail-in form. Make sure that card didn’t win one of the 12,000 great prizes before you use it for the rebate.
By the way, have you tried that new and most delicious McRib sandwich? They ran out at one restaurant down the road, so you’d better go get a few while supplies last.
