Here's how you can get a Whopper from Burger King completely free of charge this Wednesday

Burger fans will be pleased to hear that they can claim a free Whopper Burger King this Wednesday (18 May) by simply visiting their nearest participating branch.

Whopper Day returns in just two days time, with Burger King giving away its signature staple to people across the United Kingdom - completely free of charge with no additional purchase necessary.

Those interested in pursuing the deal are simply asked to download Burger King's free mobile application from the App Store or Google Play Store, and will be provided with a redeemable voucher code to use in-store upon account creation.

Punters are then asked to visit their local branch to claim their free Whopper. Those who prefer delivery can also get a Whopper straight to their door when they spend £15 or over on Deliveroo.

The Whopper, usually priced at £5.49, is Burger King’s most famous flame-grilled menu item. It consists of seared beef patty, topped with fresh tomatoes, freshly cut lettuce and onions, crunchy pickle, a layer of creamy mayonnaise and a swirl of ketchup - all encapsulated inside a soft and fluffy sesame seed bun.

And the same offer also stands on Burger King's plant-based take on the burger too, so vegans and veggies should fear not.

Katie Evans at, Burger King UK, said: “The Whopper is Burger King’s hero burger - created using fresh ingredients, made to order your way and flame-grilled to create the signature, mouth-watering flavour that our customers love. For one day only we think everyone deserves to get involved with a bite of the action and savour a free Whopper on us!

“This Whopper Day, we hope the nation will join us in enjoying a legendary Whopper. If you haven’t tried a Whopper before, here’s the day to try it!”

The deal is available for one day only, meaning Whopper fans will have to be quick to avoid missing out on a bite of the action.
