National Cheeseburger Day deals: 1 cent at Wendy's, McDonald's 50-cent offer

12:11 18.09.2023 - New York Post, Jane Herz

This deal is truly bun in a million.

In honor of National Cheeseburger Day on Monday, September 18, Wendy's will be selling its Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers for just one cent.

The deal, which is only available with purchase, will be on the fast food chain's app Rewards Store or on the website, Wendy's confirmed to The Post.

The famously delicious dish is made up of a fresh beef patty, Applewood smoked bacon, melted American Cheese, and topped with lettuce, tomato and a spread of mayonnaise.

It clocks in at 370 calories.

And, the good news is that not only will the offer be available in celebration of National Cheeseburger Day, but it will also be extended for a few days afterward until Friday, September 22.

This is not the first time that the classic restaurant has offered a sweet deal like this.

They did the same thing from May 26 to June 1 this year in honor of National Hamburger Month, per People, which takes place in May.

The news comes just a few months after the fast-food chain announced in May that they were testing an underground robot delivery system to use in their drive-thrus.

The company will be partnering with Pipedream, a hyper logistics company, to execute this idea.

"We know that serving orders quickly and accurately leads to increased customer satisfaction," said Deepak Ajmani, U.S. Chief Operations Officer of the Wendy's Company.

"Pipedream's Instant Pickup system has the potential to unlock greater mobile order speed of service and accuracy, enabling us to consistently deliver hot and fresh Wendy's products to our fans."

Wendy's isn't the only fast food purveyor offering special deals for National Cheeseburger Day, either.

McDonald's will give double cheeseburgers for 50 cents when customers order exclusively through the McDonald's App.

Burger King customers who use the Royal Perks membership can get a free cheeseburger if they have spent $1 or more this year.

Carl's Jr. will offer half-off double cheeseburgers all day on Monday and Applebee's will also have a cheeseburger and fries meal for $9.

In other fast food news, McDonald's announced earlier this month that they would be putting an end to their self-serve soft drink machines.

According to The State Journal-Register of Illinois, they will be getting rid of them entirely throughout the next decade, due to concerns over hygiene, theft and consumer eating habits.

However, they did note that free refills on drinks would still be available - so don't fret, fast-food lovers.
