McDonald’s Red Envelopes fete $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu and Year of the Dog
OAK BROOK, Illinois – McDonald’s has introduced its new $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu, which offers customers several delicious and craveable McDonald’s items at a compelling value.
In celebration, the company has teamed up with internationally renowned Chinese American fashion designer Anna Sui to ring in the 2018 Lunar New Year by creating a series of limited edition lucky red envelopes. The envelopes feature original designs by Sui and will be available in San Francisco on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. For fans unable to be in San Francisco on Jan. 23, partner social influencers will be running national sweepstakes on their respective channels to make sure fans have a chance to get their hands on the coveted red envelopes.
During the three-week Lunar New Year holiday season, red envelopes are traditionally filled with money and given out as gifts. The first-time collaboration between McDonald’s and Anna Sui to create the envelopes is a whimsical celebration of the global holiday, which honors family, prosperity and good fortune. Inspired by the $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu and the 2018 Year of the Dog, Sui incorporated value-themed well wishes along with original artwork of popular Asian dog breeds, including a Pug and Shiba Inu, which have been seamlessly blended into the designs with her signature style.
