Not too much that bothers me here, but the bu fu buddies should lose the paper hats, show your dedication to the Whopper!
 
 
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

It takes two hands to handle a Whopper!
 
At 2 for $10 bucks, that's...  ten bucks.
Think I'll pass.

I totally agree that the "2 for $10 isn't really all that great of a deal. It seems reasonable, but not a great deal. Now, make it 2 for $5, and now we're talking!

some of these bundles are deceptive -- the illusion of a restaurant helping you out with a bargain.  If someone actually did the math, it can be a lot cheaper in some cases not to bundle... but people are either stupid, or lazy and that's where these companies make their money.

Millenial, good point that bundling isn't always the best deal. A $1 burger, a $1 value dessert, $1 value fries and $1 value soda is $4.28 at say Checkers including tax, two people is only $8.56, over a dollar less for two people than the Burger King 2 for $10 "deal."

But what if you have to drive further to get to Checkers?  Let's say you get 20 miles to the gallon, and the Checkers is 6 miles away (and the Burger King is only 1 mile away).  And let's say gas is $2.50/gallon.  You will have driven an extra 12 miles, costing you $1.50.  That kills the 72-cent savings.
 
Think about it!

Think about it!


Actually, you'll have only driven an extra 10 miles.

Checkers @ 6 miles each way = 12 miles.

BK @ 1 mile each way = 2 miles.

12 miles - 2 miles = 10 extra miles.

10 extra miles @ 20mpg = ½ gallon of gas @ 2.50/gal = 1.25 extra cost.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Yeah, I was tired when I wrote that.  I knew there was probably something wrong there.  I took the first mile (to BK) into consideration, and then forgot about it in my calculations.
