The late talk show host, who passed away in July 2020 at the age of 88, was, according to his son-in-law, the proud owner of a “Free McDonalds for life” card. Mike Schur, who played Mose on “The Office” and was co-creator of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” and “Parks and Recreation,” has been married to Philbin’s daughter, J. J. Philbin, since 2005. Schur says sometime in the 90s, Philbin received a gold-colored card that said ‘This card entitles Regis Philbin free McDonald’s for life.” Schur says Regis wasn’t scared to show off his card and used it when he would travel with his daughter, Schur’s wife.  If you could have a “for life” card, who or what would it be for?
