Yes, that's the point, I think.  It was her mistake. No matter what she was told, the receipt indicated what it could be used for.  She also hadn't realized she had to make additional purchases (a drink and a side).  It's always best to read thoroughly before assuming.

 

I've never been to a White Castle!  They're pretty legendary.

Re: My Burger King Impossible whopper experience

I would not have accepted the offer either....classic bait and switch. I can’t stand Burger King anyway....this just gives me one more reason not to go there.

Re: My Burger King Impossible whopper experience

I think since she had tried the impossible burger the implication was that would be the free one...there was no exclusion on the coupon according to OP. Best resolution...never go there again.

Re: My Burger King Impossible whopper experience

if you go to burger king to get a WHOPPER.....you get the basic whopper burger with pickles, onions, lettuce, tomato, mayo, ketchup.

 

to order a DIFFERENT whopper you need to call it what it is. WHOPPER with cheese, WHOPPER with bacon, impossible WHOPPER, double WHOPPER, double WHOPPER with cheese, angry WHOPPER.....you get the idea.

 

the coupon states that you get a WHOPPER for free if you purchase a drink and fries. it doesnt say any whopper......it says whopper.  no bait and switch at all. it really isnt ambiguous to me at all, but then i do go to burger king sometimes and know the "rules" and what to ask for.

 

i may have to go tomorrow to get a burger......all this talk is making me crave one!

I have NEVER eaten or ordered from Burger King and don't intend to. You can smell the grease from OUTSIDE the place - NAUSEATING.

Exactly.

No bait and switch. Simply an expectation that was founded in misunderstanding on the OP's part.

It's not bait & switch at all.  The Impossible Whopper is not the same thing as a Whopper.  All she had to do was read the coupon.  It clearly said what it could be used for.  Her assumption was incorrect.
