My kids came home all excited about this yesterday and I thought they were making some ridiculous thing up. Turns out it's true! Here's how you can get a Whopper for a penny!

Obviously, Burger King has two goals here. They want people to download their app and they want to take a jab at Mcdonald's.

So the deal is you have to be within 600 feet of a McDonald's location then you can unlock the Whopper for a penny deal through the Burger King app.

The app will direct you to your nearest Burger King and you get a Whopper for 1 cent. The only catch is you can only do this once and it only runs through Wednesday, December 12th.

According to eastidahonews.com over 50,000 people have taken advantage of the offer since it debuted on Tuesday.

Go get that Whopper!
