McDonald’s UK promotion – Restaurants selling before May 19th release

Mcdonalds Pokémon Promotion cards

The UK McDonald’s Pokemon promotion has begun to appear in stores ahead of its official release on May 19th.

The Happy Meal promotion includes 4 trading cards per meal from a 25 card starter set including Pikachu. In February, the promotion launched in North America and led to huge scalper issues where individuals were purchasing bulk amounts of packs and selling on at an inflated price.

Images shared on social media report that some McDonald’s in the UK have already started to sell their Pokemon promotion. One user on Facebook revealed that they had purchased 50 packs directly from their local McDonald’s.

Earlier this month we had reported that McDonald’s UK was implementing a “Fair Ordering Policy” where customers can only purchase one additional toy alongside the purchase of a Happy Meal. This is to try and combat bulk purchasing for resale benefits as seen when this promotion launched in the United States. If these reports are correct then it looks like we may be experiencing similar issues on the other side of the Atlantic.

The Happy Meal packs will be packaged with one of four toys, ranging from deck boxes to frames to help display your cards.

If you’ve received these cards early or have any information related to individuals purchasing high quantities in an attempt to sell at higher prices across Facebook, please get in touch.
