Burger King Is Giving Away Whoppers for 1 Cent

Imagine eating a flame-grilled Whopper from Burger King for just 1 penny?!?! You can do it. And all you have to do is… go to McDonald’s. Wait… what?

It may sound a bit complicated but stay with me here…

For nine days, you’ll have a shot at the penny-Whopper by using BK’s reworked app. In a statement, BK says the promotion “works by geofencing McDonald’s locations across the country. 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.”

Are you still with me? Once the order is placed, the user will be “detoured” away from a McDonald’s and instead, they will be guided to the nearest Burger King to get their Whopper… for a penny.

Is it worth getting a Whopper for a penny to position yourself near a McDonald’s? Something tells me a lot of people will try this out.
