Burger King Partners with Robinhood for "Side of Crypto" Giveaway
Forget an order of fries, a handful of cheesy tots, or a stack of Impossible Nuggets: Burger King wants to give everyone a (digital) handful of Dogecoin with their next order. On Monday, the fast food giant announced its limited-time "Burger King with a Side of Crypto" offer, which allows Royal Perks members to claim a free cryptocoin every day.
According to the Burger King Crypto website, the chain has partnered with investment app Robinhood Crypto for the promotion. Between today and Sunday, November 21, Burger King will be giving away 2 million Dogecoin, 200 Ethereum, and 20 Bitcoin. As of this writing, one Dogecoin is worth $0.27 cents, one Ethereum is valued at $4,356, and a single Bitcoin clocks in at $61,807. (Burger King puts your odds of winning a Bitcoin at 1 in 100,011.)
In order to claim a free cryptocoin, you must be a member of Burger King's Royal Perks loyalty program, and make at least a $5 pre-tax purchase either through the Burger King app or on BK.com using "My Code," which can be requested during checkout. After ordering, you'll receive an email with a prize code that can be used to claim your free cryptocurrency through the Robinhood app. All prizes must be claimed by Friday, December 17. (Yes, you're required to have a Robinhood Crypto account in order to claim your prize, but existing Robinhood Crypto customers don't have to create a second account.)
