Default Get a Whopper for $.01

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/order...140200182.html


Today, 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 we 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.

This is tempting. No BK close to work, though. One on the way home but it'd be a nightmare to get out of its lot.

Do BK exes eat BK?

Is McD and Bk still rivals? I think they got others to worry about more than each other.

I went to BK with my parents for the first time in about 10 years last night. When I got home, I found out about this promotion. ARGH.

BK has nothing on MCD's. They are Pepsi and McD's are Coke.

I think it's a big social experiment.

Coke exists to see how many people go for quality and consistency over price.

Pepsi exists to see how many people will go for the super product after being incentivized somehow.

Notice how Pepsi always has the big celebrity contracts but Coke never does? They have their polar bears and stuff, no need for big star endorsements.

Pepsi is also the far cheaper one to subscribe to, if you own a restaurant and are looking for a fountain-machine provider.

you know what, it might have been Pepsi classic or whatever, now that I think about it. White and blue can. It was definitely Pepsi though I remember that much.
