McDonald’s Is Offering 1-CENT Big Macs Through DoorDash Partnership

Every time McDonald’s offers up their two Big Macs for $5 deal, I find myself suddenly sitting in the drive-thru waiting to sink my teeth into the burger behemoth’s iconic double-decker sandwich. This week, however, not only can I stay within the comforts of my own home, but can enjoy a Big Mac for nothing more than a mere penny. No, seriously.

McDonald’s has just announced that through a new promotion, customers can get their hands on a Big Mac for 1-CENT.

DoorDash has teamed up with the Golden Arches as part of a five-day promotion to give away one million Big Macs for a penny.

To access the deal, all you have to do is use the promo code 1MBIGMAC when placing an order through DoorDash. Once the promo code is in, it also enters you for a shot at winning $1 million.

The DoorDash deal will be available nationwide across 9,300 U.S. locations of McDonald’s between September 30 through October 4. The full rules and conditions can be found here.

Burger King’s Whoppers Cost 1 Cent If You Order Them At McDonald’s

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

  1. Download the Burger King app on your phone
  2. Head to a McDonald’s
  3. Order the Whopper in-app for 1-cent
  4. 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.

8 Creative Tattoos From Domino’s Failed Pizza For Life Promotion In Russia

Photo Illustration: Sam Brosnan

You may have heard last week that Domino’s Russia offered fans pizza for life if they got a tattoo of the company’s logo. Not prepared for the 350 people ready and willing to ink themselves for essentially an endless supply of pies, Domino’s called off the promotion only five days after their announcement – two months ahead of schedule.

While some played it straightforward with their tats, others got creative with the company’s logo. I mean, if you have to rock a Domino’s logo on your skin for the rest of your life, it might as well be something done creatively. Right?

Check out some of the eight best photos we’ve seen from this failed promotion. Hopefully those who missed out on the promotion, but still got themselves inked with the Domino’s branding, will be able to think of something unique to create with the logo. Or perhaps just keep them as is, as a cautionary tale on gimmicky fast food promotions.

To be honest, I’ve never really payed much mind to acai, other than the fact that I know it’s good and I enjoy it, so I guess I am partly to blame for the need for an Acai Awareness Month. Regardless, 2,520 free acai bowls are going to find their way into 84 happy people’s bellies.

Acai is packed to the brim with nutrients and antioxidants your body loves, on top of being  hence why the superfruit is so popular both amongst both refined palates and health nuts alike.

All you have to do is go to a Juice It Up! location any day in April, purchase one of their two Acai Bowls, follow @JuiceItUp and @Sambazon (the acai provider and partner to Juice It Up!) on Instagram, then post a picture of your bowl. That’s it! Once you post it, you’ll be officially entered for the chance to be one of the lucky winners.

Remember to post your picture in April, because the winners will be notified on May 1, then they will receive their free bowls for 30 days from May 2-31. Unfortunately only 83 people will get lucky, because I thoroughly intend to be one of the winners. Best of luck to you all!
