MIAMI (AP/BUSINESS WIRE) - The BURGER KING brand is turning more than 14,000 McDonald’s into BURGER KING restaurants. Sort of.
For a limited time, when you go within 600 feet of a McDonald’s restaurant you can order a flame-grilled WHOPPER sandwich for only 1¢ on the newly revamped BK App. It’s what they call a "WHOPPER Detour".
The WHOPPER Detour 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. 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.
The WHOPPER Detour promotion is part of the newly relaunched BK App which now offers order-ahead functionality. The WHOPPER Detour promotion can be redeemed one time only, from December 4th until December 12th, at participating BURGER KING restaurants nationwide. The offer is unlocked when a guest is within a 600 feet radius of most 14,000+ McDonald’s restaurant locations.
Don’t miss out on your chance to order the first WHOPPER sandwich ever available only “at” McDonald’s. Watch a video about the promotion HERE.
