Get a 1 cent Burger King Whopper … by going to McDonald’s

If you weren’t craving a Burger King Whopper before, you will be in about 60 seconds. But first you have read this and then go to McDonald’s to get it.

WAIT, WHAT?!? Go to McDonald’s to get a Whopper?!? 

Through Dec. 12, Burger King is selling its iconic burger for just 1 cent in its “Whopper Detour” promotion.

Burger King Whopper at McDonald's

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Download the Burger King app (iTunes | Google Play)
  2. Drive to a McDonald’s.
  3. Get within 600 feet of that McDonald’s and then order the 1 cent Whopper in the app
  4. Get detoured to Burger King
  5. Pick up your Whopper
  6. Eat that Whopper
  7. Repeat for a friend

“If a guest is inside one of these geofenced areas and has the new BK App on their device, the app will unlock the Whopper sandwich for a penny promotion,” Burger King said in a press release. “Once the 1¢ Whopper sandwich order is placed, the user will be ‘detoured’ away from McDonald’s, as the app navigates them to the nearest Burger King restaurant for pick up.”

It’s a bit of a weird way to “have it your way,” but we bet you’re craving a Burger King Whopper now …
