Burger King wants you to order a Whopper for a penny … at McDonald’s
Burger King is selling Whoppers for a penny.
But, yes, there’s a catch.
Dubbing it the “Whopper Detour,” the company is touting the relaunch of its app with a promotion that asks customers to go to … McDonald’s.
In order to cash in on the 1 cent Whopper, customers must place a Burger King mobile order on the new app from within 600 feet of a McDonald’s.
Once the order is placed, the app will direct you to the nearest Burger King.
so, we went on a little detour yesterday ourselves. we may have parked our signs in unfortunate spots. what an unusual coincidence. #WhopperDetour
morning everyone. if you happen to be going to McDonald's today, drive safe
