Burger King Running Amazon.com Gift Card Promotion

Email  Print Print  

I discovered a cool blog today, Geektronica, that had information about a Burger King promotion where they give away an Amazon Gift Card, worth between $1 and $10,000) with each “large or king sized” value meal. What most of you might find interesting is that you don’t actually need to buy anything to get a card, just send a “hand-printed, self-addressed, postage-stamped #10 envelope” to BK:


…you can send a self-addressed stamped envelope (2 stamps = 2 x $.37 = $0.74 + 2 envelopes) to the address below and they’ll send you one. There’s no limit on how many requests you can send, but they have to be handwritten and in separate outer envelopes. The address is:

Official Cash Card Request
PO Box 1286
Elmhurst, IL 60126-1286

Deadline is 7/31.

The promotion is in conjunction with the release of The Fantastic Four and here are the official contest rules. There are 5 $10k cards, 50 $1k cards, 600 $100 cards, and 9000 $1 cards. I also think it’s hilarious that Canadians have to answer a math question: “Canadian residents must correctly answer a mathematical skill testing question online to be eligible to redeem the Amazon Credit.” And if you’re curious, here are the Amazon Promotional Code Rules & Restrictions.

I might send in a few requests, because I’m not eating that crap at BK, and see what happens. :)

Update 8/4/05: Well, I did sent in six requests (I had some free time) to see what happened. I think I received the six cards within a week and you know what I got? Six $1 Amazon.com gift cards which apparently can only be used individually (!!!)… at least I have until July 31st, 2007 to make six Amazon.com orders. In order to check how much they’re worth, you just visit www.Amazon.com/burgerking.

I’m afraid I’m going to have to shut off discussion and remove a few comments from this article but it’s become just one blistering comment after another on Burger King, if you have a comment on the promotion itself, if you want you can send it to me and I’ll post it in your name/email/etc.

  2. Geektroncia says:

    I guess BK doesn’t want any Canadians with low math skills getting free stuff. Very, very logical.

    Thanks for the link!

  3. Will says:

    I don’t get it either, it’s stupid.

  4. judy says:

    where is the site to check these cards i went to amazon.comburgerking but nothing i found to enter the codes

  5. jim says:

    You probably just have to enter the codes before checkout and see how much they take off.

  6. DM says:

    You don’t enter “codes.” You can only use ONE code. You can’t accumulate these codes like the Best Buy bucks at McD’s sometime back. This promotion is the worst one yet.

  7. jim says:

    So really this probably drives sales to Amazon as much as it does to BK…

  8. melissa says:

  9. kathy says:
