It's a modern staple, but it feels like it's been so long since we had the excitement of tearing tokens off the packaging of McDonald's products, dreaming of winning something big.
Now, it's back.
I think we can all take a guess by now as to why it has been so long, but let's not dwell on the past, because there's a different twist on this year's promotional giveaway.
This year, it's being called McDonald's Monopoly VIP.
What makes it so VIP, I hear you ask?
Well, if you're one of just 1,000 people who manages to win Maccies VIP status, you'll receive a McDonald's VIP Gold Card, which entitles you to a free - yes, free - medium meal of your choosing every single week for an entire year.
That's better than a slap in the face with a wet fish, right?
It's the first time ever that they've offered such a thing, and there will no doubt be loads of people looking to get their hands on one.
Of course, there will still be a whole host of other prizes up for grabs, including cash sums, but - in the vast majority of cases - more McDonald's food.
So, it launches today - that's Wednesday 25 August - but some of the prizes will be redeemable up until November.
In order to play, you'll need to be aged 16 or over.
When you order food, just peel off however many stickers you've got on the packaging, and see whether you've won underneath.
You could win an instant prize, or you can collect various 'properties' from the classic Monopoly board game, or an online code to potentially win a prize.

The properties can be totted up and collected to put towards larger prizes.
McDonald's Monopoly was supposed to come back earlier this year, but Covid-19 put an end to that.
That's even though they'd already had millions of pieces of packaging made up, which would otherwise have gone to waste.
To stop that happening, McDonald's are encouraging people to check the website just to double check what they've got.
That's basically everything you know, so get on down to your local McDonald's and get stuck in.
It's been a while.
