LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) — Burger King is turning more than 14,000 McDonald’s into its own restaurants.
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.
They’re calling it a Whopper Detour.
It works by geofencing McDonald’s locations across the country and if you walk into one of those geofenced areas, using the BK App, it will unlock the Whopper sandwich for a penny promotion.
Once you place the order for a 1¢ Whopper, you will be ‘detoured’ away from McDonald’s and navigated to the nearest Burger King.
You have to be within 600 feet of one of the more than 14,000 McDonald’s restaurant locations.
The promotion lasts until December 12 and can only be used one time.
