Burger King might be trying to screw you on coupon deals


A Maryland women is accusing Burger King of being behind a whopper of a coupon scam involving a Croissan’which.

Somebody phone Lifetime, we have their next true life story to tell. A Maryland women is taking Burger King to court alleging they gouged prices on items they supposedly had ‘buy-one-get-one’ coupons for.

The story writes itself, and has all of the candy-coated nuance we’ve come to expect from a Lifetime production. Will we ever forget Lindsay Lohan playing Elizabeth Taylor?

One person who won’t forget is Koleta Anderson of Upper Marlboro, Md, because apparently nothing gets past her. Koleta filed a class-action lawsuit against Burger King alleging that Croissan’which prices were inflated from their normal price after she presented coupons for them.

Per the court documents:

"Anderson’s lawsuit accuses Burger of “consumer deception,” breach of contract, and breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, because “the terms of [a] buy-one-get-one deal are well known to American consumers.”"

Anderson’s claim is that the $1 sandwiches were rung up at a total of $4.19 despite the singular original price being less than twice what would have been charged if two sandwiches had been purchased.

This is a wide spread issue that the Miami Herald is seeing pop up in South Beach. All of this means that the next time you look at a coupon you’d better check to make sure everything is on the level. The whole point of coupons is to get you to come in and spend money, not give things away.

Coupons are also supposed to be of some sort of value, something that doesn’t seem to be the case with this odd and suspicious Burger King case.
