Burger King is currently offering a free Whopper Sandwich or Original Chicken Sandwich to anyone who fills out a quick phone survey, and you can do it every single time you eat at Burger King.
Updated February 9, 2017: Please note that although Burger King does still offer receipt surveys for special promotions at participating locations, the coupon that is provided has changed since this article was originally written, so you may receive an alternative offer.
It’s simple. All you have to do is eat at Burger King once and save your receipt, or you can get a receipt from a friend that just went.
Call the toll free number on back of the receipt within 48 hours of eating there (1-866-425-4745).
Complete the 5-minute survey. They’ll ask for the store number on the receipt and the state you are in, and then about 15-20 general questions. You can pretty much type the same number multiple times in a row to answer, since they require that you listen to the entire question, but not necessarily all of the available answers. It only takes you about 2-3 minutes after the first time.
Then you will receive a code, which you must write on the receipt.
That’s it. Take the receipt with your code to ANY Burger King within one month of your original purchase, and you’ll get a free Whopper or Original Chicken sandwich when you purchase ANY SIZE drink and fries.
That means you can get a drink and fries off of their dollar menu, and you’ll still get a free Whopper or Chicken sandwich. If you eat there, you’re going to get refills anyway, and if you take it to go, you get a Whopper, fries and a drink for $2 and some change, when a Whopper value meal would usually cost $5 or more.
Although the receipt officially says one survey per customer per month, there is no way for them to enforce this unless you go to the same Burger King and see the same cashier every day. Otherwise, they have no method of keeping track of how many surveys you take, as they don’t ask any personal information.
Check out how much money you can save based on an average of $2.50 in savings per visit, considering that a value meal costs $5 or more, but it also comes with a larger fries and beverage than the dollar menu, which could cost you less than $2.25.
Visits Per Month = Savings Per Year (Based on $2.50 in Savings Per Visit)
5/month = $150/year
10/month = $300/year
15/month = $450/year
Although the savings can get even greater, we don’t recommend eating much more than 15 times a month at Burger King (sorry BK).
It really is a great way to get a cheap lunch while you’re working, or to get a quick meal for your kid on the go, and the savings can be enormous if you’re one of the BK faithful.
You can also sign up for the Burger King Rewards Program to earn BK Crowns toward free menu items and get access to exclusive coupons.
Thanks and enjoy maximizing money.
