Burger King Is Offering 1-Cent Whoppers ‘at’ McDonald’s
Burger King is using its competitor's own restaurants as part of a devious new promotion. Their "Whopper Detour" deal is giving customers Whoppers for a penny. But, and here comes the sneaky part, customers have to be using the Burger King app to order – and be at a McDonald's. Business Insider reports that the Burger King app will recognize the user's location as being at a McDonalds and unlock the penny deal. After you place an order for the Whopper, the app will "detour" you away from McDonald's and navigate you to the closest Burger King so you can pick it up.
