Burger King is closing out the year with a pretty savvy Whopper promotion, all while taking a quick shot at rival burger chain McDonald’s. Hey, all in good fun, right?
Fans of BK will now be able to purchase their iconic Whopper burger for a penny. Here’s the catch: you have to be inside a McDonald’s to do so.
According to the brand, users of the app will be able to unlock a 1-cent Whopper promotion if they are within 600 feet of a McDonald’s location. Once they order their burger, they can head to the nearest Burger King spot and pick it up.
Here’s how to do it in 4 steps
- Download the Burger King app on your phone
- Head to a McDonald’s
- Order the Whopper in-app for 1-cent
- Pick up your Whopper at the nearest Burger King location
Seems pretty easy.
For those hoping to get 1,000 Whoppers for $10, it seems you can only activate this deal once through the app. Still, getting a Whopper for the price of a copper coin we could easily find on the ground sounds like a pretty solid bargain.
Wouldn’t mind ordering some breakfast sandwiches at McDonald’s while we’re there anyways.
