How to Get Free Whoppers and Original Chicken Sandwiches From Burger King

Take the survey - Get a free sandwichIf you’ve ever eaten at Burger King I’m sure that you’ve noticed the offer on the back of your receipt where in exchange for going online and taking a survey about your experience the restaurant gives you a free Whopper or Original Chicken Sandwich on your next visit. What I’m going to show you is how you can get the free sandwich without even taking the survey at all.

Alright, so the Whoppers and chicken sandwiches aren’t technically “free” since you still need to buy a small, medium or largre order of fries and a drink to get them, but “How to Get Free Whoppers and Original Chicken Sandwiches From Burger King Without Taking the Survey on the Back of Your Receipt” was just WAY too long of a title for a blog post. Plus, if you’re planning on buying a Whopper or an Original Chicken Sandwich anyway this deal makes them much cheaper than just purchasing either of them as part of a combo meal. Alright, on to the free sandwiches!

The way that Burger King’s survey works is that after completing it you’re given a code to write on the back of your receipt, which you then turn in for your free sandwich on your next visit. The code is always a combination of two letters followed by a random string of five numbers. The two letters are exactly the same for every single customer who takes the survey in a given month and the five numbers are always completely random. When you turn in your receipt for a free sandwich all the Burger King employees do is check to make sure that the first two letters match what Burger King tells them are the two correct letters for everyone who took the survey that month.

What’s even better is that although the letter codes vary from month to month they never change from year to year. What’s better than that is that I just happen to know the letter codes that Burger King uses for every single month. The codes are as follows:

January – BB
February – LS
March – JH
April – PL
May – BK
June – WH
July – FF
August – BF
September – CF
October – CK
November – CB
December – VM

Alright, so let’s say that during the month of August you eat at Burger King and save your receipt so you can complete the survey and get a free sandwich on your next visit. Your code would be BF followed by five random numbers, so BF92458 would work as would BF23514 or any other combination of BF followed by any five random numbers. Stopped in during the month of November? No problem, just use CB and any five numbers you want instead of BF. Pretty easy huh?

      Yeah I guess they could, but I’m pretty sure that the redemption codes haven’t changed in years so I guess if they haven’t changed them by now they probably aren’t planning on it.

    The FLAME BROILED Whopper has always been my favorite. However I have not had ocassion to purchase many in the last year or so. When I do, it is apparant to me that the “flame broiler” is no longer used. The meat tastes like everyone elses. And that is not a compliment. I noticed on your recent ads that you still claim it. The taste is not there!

    The receipt coupons are great. They always stick one on the bag and give you one, so if you figure that you get 2 every time you buy something, you can load up on free whopper coupons. The codes are right. Burger king employees have no way of verifying them, so as long as the first 2 letters are correct you are set. You can even use more than one coupon per visit if you get 2 whoppers. My girlfriend and I use these things all the time. Even when you use a receipt you get another one so theyre neverending. I am very cheap so I love free things! Great job with the months for the codes!

What? … So in essence this is a crap shoot to get your survey in on time? … Say that before people take the time and effort to take the survey.

    How has nobody asked about validation procedures? It’s been mentioned (and it’s been my experience) that they just look at it and throw it away. But what I’d like to know (and what everyone else should like to know as well) is if there is a way they can validate the code to see if it was actually generated by their survey experience. This is not only possible, but relatively easy to do, and so why wouldn’t they have this set up? I can’t imagine any good reason they wouldn’t, and so under the assumption that there is a way to validate it, my question is simply: Has anyone ever seen them punch in a number to check for validation? Or does anyone that works at BK know more about this?

    Additionally, I’d be quite happy taking the very short survey if I could do it multiple times a month, so I’d rather find a work around for doing multiple surveys in a month than to do it this way. So if anyone can tell me how they determine that I’ve already taken the survey for this month (IP address, cookies, MAC address, etc.?) then I can work around that without too much trouble.

    Thanks!

    • Nick
      March 31, 2014 at 11:12 am (3 weeks ago)

      John, the validation is that the code for each month is two letters followed by five random numbers. If they check at all all they check is that the two letters match the month that you took the survey in and that hasn’t changed for years. Aside from that there’s really nothing for them to check even if they wanted to.
