Apple today sent out emails advertising its latest Apple Pay promotion, which offers a $1 Crispy Chicken Sandwich at Burger King for customers who order ahead through the Burger King app for contactless pickup or delivery.


The offer can be found in the Offers tab of the BK app and is valid through June 10. The offer is not valid in Alaska or Hawaii, and delivery orders require a $10 minimum purchase.

In addition to Burger King, Apple in its email also highlights several other major merchants that feature Apple Pay for online orders with in-store pickup, including Best Buy, Office Depot, Target, and Walgreens. Apple also highlights Puma and REI as two new retailers that are now accepting Apple Pay.

Just this week, Apple and Walgreens teamed up on a new promotion that offers Apple Card users who sign up for an account during the month of June the ability to earn $50 in bonus Daily Cash when they spend at least $50 on their Apple Card at Walgreens within 30 days of opening an Apple Card account.

A promo getting you a price higher than the food is worth from a fast food chain that should be dead. Ok. Sure. YCPOUOYWHBMWASNDFAAK.

Too bad they are all closed for the most part, especially around here in NJ

Their app is still a mess. After several redesigns there is still the same annoying bugs and crashes, issues with payment, and random cancellations. You’d think for a chain as large as this they would at least put in the minimum effort.

I used to LOVE BK as a little kid and then again in college, but I saw the light. I haven’t willingly bought it in yearsss.

The last 2 times I went with my partner, the employees were unsure of their own menu items.

Wish it was McDonald’s Wendy’s or Popeyes.

I would pay a dollar to not install an app, so I'll just avoid this deal and we'll call this a wash.

Burger King is the worst fast food place, at least in Canada.
It used to be better, but they went downhill. The whopper is still a decent sandwich, but it took a dive with everything else. The veggie whopper is the franchise scratching and clawing to stay alive. The dining rooms are shabby and the staff are not motivated like other fast food chains. I remember when whoppers would go on sale for $0.99. Two fisting whoppers in college for $2.15. Then $0.59 items at Taco Bell for dessert.

Not surprised considering that at least one BK here still has NFC disabled for some reason when you pay inside (while some/most others have it working with the same terminals).

Kind of ashamed to see a healthy living advocate like Apple promoting a clogged artery like BK.

I think of BK as the K-Mart of the fast food industry. Walking into one is like taking a trip back in time.

Midwest America.
Burger King did an 'inversion'. They are owned by a foreign company, and pay zero US corporate taxes. I looked into doing an inversion, and an accountant laughed, and then looked at me not laughing. Yeah, apparently 'real people' can't do an inversion like that. Fake people, corporations, can. DANGIT!!! Oh, and people that move out of the country STILL PAY US TAXES for a time after they leave. Like, what's up with that? Um... *shrug*

People that worked at the BK I worked at said that getting into McDonald's was harder. But I know people that went from one to the other. It didn't make much sense. It's just a restaurant. Well, except for the people that worked at the Arby's. OMG!!!

The one in the town where I grew up apparently never cleaned their slicer. The health inspector stopped by, and people said he actually threw up at what he found there. The place was closed down, and eventually bulldozed. As far as I know, there has never been an Arby's within those city limits since. Wow... (WE HAVE THE MEATS!!! And...) Yeah, I don't do Arby's either. But, in defense of the Arby's mutants, cleaning a slicer is dangerous. I worked at a restaurant that didn't rely on their slicer much, and only certain people could clean it. Those things are SHARP! :oops:😀:cool:

Looks like the quality varies from one country to another. BK here in Mexico is fairly decent. And I can and have used apple pay at BK locations here too, though unofficially.
Burger King in Canada is quite a bit better than in the US, but it's still a few steps below "decent".

I don't know why so many people install fast food apps to let themselves be tracked in exchange for a few coupons that aren't as good as what they used to get in mailers. This doesn't even cost the company to send out the coupons.

The app was pretty bad for years. I’m sure the pandemic didn’t help, but I’ve been hitting issues with their coupon/ordering process almost every time I open the app (which admittedly, is not very often) long before coronavirus.
