McDonald's join SuperGold Card programme

McDonald's join SuperGold Card programme

Restaurant chain McDonald's has joined the Government's SuperGold Card programme.

From today, McDonald's will offer card holders a free cup of tea or filter coffee with any purchase at its 141 branches nationwide.

The SuperGold Card programme now has more than 760 business partners offering a large range of discounts and concessions at 3960 outlets across the country.

Launched in August 2007, the SuperGold Card is a free discounts and concessions card available to all New Zealand residents who are 65 and older, or who receive New Zealand Superannuation or a Veteran's Pension.

The card was sent to half a million New Zealanders and aims to recognise the contribution New Zealand's seniors have made, and continue to make to New Zealand society by providing discounts on a wide range of everyday goods and services.

The SuperGold Card replaces the Community Services Card and former New Zealand Super Card for eligible cardholders to allow for easier access to central and local government entitlements. There are two versions of the card one is a "S-branded" SuperGold Card and a special "V-branded" Veteran SuperGold Card.

SuperGold Card business manager Neil Chave says having such an iconic and well known brand join as a business partner is very exciting. "I'm sure SuperGold Card holders will value and enjoy the commitment McDonald's has made to the programme."

New business partners are added to the SuperGold Card website www.supergold.govt.nz as they join.
