Awful sweaters, garden gnomes, aftershave that smells like toilet cleaner — every holiday season we get lots of stuff we don’t want or need by people who either don’t care or know enough about us. This year, however, is going to be different. That’s because instead of chucking them all in the bin we’re going to head down to Burger King and exchange them for a free whopper.
Yes, the fast food chain has announced that people can take their unwanted gifts to a select number of participating restaurants and in return receive one of those delicious sesame seed buns packed with flame-grilled beef, juicy tomatoes, fresh lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions.
Burger King says that all items received will later be donated to charity — so it’s all for a great cause.
The gift must be unused to be accepted and, according to a Burger King spokesperson, “the acceptability of item will be determined by Burger King Restaurant personnel in their sole discretion.”
Restaurants in London, Miami and Rio will be taking part, but if you don’t live in one of these three cities, there’s still a chance to score some free food. Starting on December 26, the first 100 people to post a picture of themselves with their unwanted gift using the hashtag #WhopperExchange will also receive “a surprise from the Burger King brand’s social media accounts,” according to a company press release.
The only U.S. location is at South Beach’s Burger King at 910 Arthur Godfrey Road in Miami. The “Whopper Exchange” takes place on December 26 from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
