The 1 Cent Whopper is My Kinda Petty

For those of you that are out the loop:

Burger King is offering customers its iconic Whopper hamburger for just one cent, but there’s a catch; you have to go to McDonald’s to order it.

INTRODUCING THE #WHOPPERDETOUR. ORDER A WHOPPER FOR A PENNY ONLY “AT” MCDONALD’S WITH THE BK APP. YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT, DRIVE NEAR A MCDONALD’S AND USE THE BK APP. NO NEED TO GO TO THEIR DRIVE-THRU. GET YOURS BEFORE DECEMBER 12TH. BURGERKING.APP.LINK/I78LFKWDMS

POSTED BY BURGER KING ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2018

In the burger chain’s latest promotion, customers who download the Burger King app, then go within 600 feet of a McDonald’s are able to order a Whopper through the app for a single penny.

The Whooper Detour is available through Dec 12.


Guys I did this Friday night. Immediately after I did I told my friend about it and he did it (which is where we got this hilarious video btw on our Instagram), if you’re a fan of the flame broiled burger I highly recommend you do the same.

So I was skeptical when I first saw this headline..like no way it’s going to be 1 cent, or it’s gotta be a whopper jr, or I’m going to have to buy something else…nope! I pulled into a McDonald’s parking lot, whipped out my Iphone and logged into the new BK app and right there waiting for me was my 1 cent Whopper coupon. I clicked that bad boy, customized my burger…I added cheese to my whopper so my order came to 40 cents instead of 1, I suppose I’ll live… paid through the app and boom I was picking up my burger through the drive thru less than 1 minute later.

That was one of the funnier fast food experiences of my life that didn’t involve violence or drunken behavior because I promise you I watched at least 5 cars do the same thing that I did…like Leer and Big Al said on episode 39 of the JG podcast…just imagine the McDonald’s manager and employees looking out the window and seeing mad people with Bk apps out on their phones in the parking lot ordering 1 cent whoppers and immediately dipping to go to the King. That’s some petty sitcom shit right there and I’m here for it. I can’t wait to see what McDonald’s does to counter.

You got 2 days left to get in on the petty wars people!
