One (chicken parmesan sandwich) already expired, but thank you for the rest.

All of the coupons are still in date

@sarisin:

It says, "Offer valid beginning 09/01/12".

That's beginning.... not expiring!

Just went and had the drive-thru girl tell me that they don't have a website, let alone online coupons, but she would be nice enough to honor the coupon this one time, but I'd better not come back with anymore printed coupons.

So yeah. Had to waste ten minutes writing an angry customer satisfaction survey.

@tehbronson: You should BK corporation know that this location does not think BK has a web site!

@tehbronson:

Every store designates 1 employee as the idiot...

Sure BK would be happy that there promoting of there online presence has fallen on deaf ears, even an employee who probably see's "BK.com" printed on every bag and cup they handle every day doesn't know they have a website??

+1 for pissing off the food nazis

Did none of you read the coupon, which very clearly states "This offer may not be available in all BURGER KING® restaurants, and participation may vary by restaurant."

Many/most/ a bunch of BK's are franchisee-owned stores which may choose not to participate. I too am seriously annoyed when I get told at the drive-through that the coupon isn't good, but it's hardly fair to blame the employee stuck with the task of telling you the bad news.

And finally, I'm not especially surprised to hear that an employee says s/he doesn't know 'they" have a website -- s/he may have been thinking about her own store, not the corporate website.

Today is Labor Day. Could we please have a little more tolerance for the foibles of the folks who are out there actually working?

@magic cave: It's LABOR DAY. So what better time to LABOR by getting your own company's facts straight. Enjoy your LABOR. It's what you're getting paid for.

@swader: While you're talking about "idiots," you might want to brush up on your spelling ("their" and not "there") and punctuation ( it's "sees" not "see's," which is a possessive and only appropriate if you're referring to the Holy See, which is in Roman and to my knowlege doesn't sell BK foot at all).

I don't usually care much about typographical errors, spelling mistakes, and use of homonyms in posts, but your casual insult of calling someone an "idiot" while proceeding to demonstrate your own apparent lack of basic skills crossed a common-courtesy boundary that I just cannot leave unnoted.

@justabandnerd: And your point is, what, exactly? That someone made a mistake? That you felt personally affronted by it? That you yourself never make mistakes?

Bah.

vote-for3vote-against

haha love the tags - thanks!

vote-for-3vote-against

@magic cave: my point is that I would go about getting my facts straight before I told a customer "You are wrong, sir. We do not have a website".

And then I'd be glad to have something to labor for on labor day. I'd further show some gratitude for the people who created the job that gets me paid.

Is the obesity and cardiac arrest included or do I have to pay extra?

vote-for6vote-against

@justabandnerd: Just as the previous poster said, it's not the franchisee's "company" that published the ad. Therefore, the employee can't be blamed for not knowing about it, if that franchisee chose not to participate.

@magic cave: Labor day is about unions and communism, not "actually working," so no.

Please be aware that they need a print out of the coupon page. I even though I pulled out my phone and showed them the website right on my phone. They didn't honor that at all. I have shown my phone at other fast food joints and they have taken it just fine. Pretty frustrating. I did purchase a meal though at full price. I guess that was a good trick to get me in the "restaurant" no matter what.

vote-for3vote-against

@magic cave: Jesus, man! If you're going to get on someone about their spelling and grammar errors at least double check your post!!! BK foot??? The Holy See in Roman? Where the heck is Roman? Oh wait, did you mean Rome, not Roman, which is the word one would use to describe someone or something that comes from Rome? Or were you talking about Dan Akroyd's character in the classic film, "The Great Outdoors?"

Though you're right, one should not be upset at the employee for not knowing about a website or web-coupons. One should be complaining to management for not communicating to the employees that the company does indeed have a website and that the company has posted printable coupons on the website.

vote-for-3vote-against

the problem is not the girl at the window. BK has never accepted coupons printed by customers, that why they print and send those coupons. It says one per customer, with printable coupons of the internet everyone will have more than one to use. I'm not aware of any company who would love to loose money by letting its customers use the same coupons multiple times in the same day. Its business 101.

@searchneverend: It certainly is a problem with the girl...these coupons are ON THE BURGER KING WEBSITE; why would they be posted there if people were not supposed to print them out to use at the store?

vote-for0vote-against

@kryptonianjorel: did you check with your bk if they accept it. Coz I sure ask first before lashing out like a maniac and they told me they're not one of the participating bk's. So no it's not her fault. And if you're so tight on budget that u can't buy the food without using a coupon then maybe you shouldn't be wasting your money anyways. Perhaps learning how to cook food at home is a better alternative.

vote-for1vote-against

@searchneverend: Did you even read what I wrote? This has 0 to do with a particular BK accepting the coupons or not, but with the fact that the cashier stated that BK doesn't have a website, and that they don't have online coupons. If her BK doesn't take coupons, cool, but thats not what she said.

Work on your reading comprehension, it'll do you wonders

@eggman1007: Congratulations! You've not only discovered an example of irony, but you've also revealed an example of why it's generally unwise to worry about typos in online posts!

vote-for1vote-against

@magic cave: I have a problem with that for one simple reason. They are receiving the benefit of the advertising campaign when people come in with the coupons. Sure, as a franchise they aren't obligated to honor them. But I know that any business that says to me "I'm not going to honor that company coupon" for that reason pretty much tells me they are riding on the coat tails of the corporate entity, but don't necessarily live up to the same corporate expectations.

Most corporations just wash their hands of the whole thing, because it's not worth it to them to do anything about it. The part where some locations don't have to honor them is just their way of giving up making franchise locations play ball.

Meanwhile, I'm going to go to the BK in my building and get me some breakfast...

vote-for3vote-against

And they just refused the coupon as well. So, I walked out without buying anything, went next door, and got something there. Hey, look, choices.

@magic cave: Don't I get points for a "The Great Outdoors" reference?? That took some time on my part, darnit!

I gave the coupons to my mom; she was very excited until she tried to use one and the girl told her, " we don't take coupons, especially not those!". So she left and went to Wendy's. Way to go BK!

vote-for1vote-against

I just read this entire sequence of comments from the initial ones actually about the coupons, to the later ones apparently begging for karma, trolling, or bickering.

I need an effing whopper.
