I heard this before but thought it was a rumour, McDonalds accepts Burger King vouchers due to competition.

I assumed it was if there was a local branch but theres none for about 10 miles near me and they still took my Burger King voucher.

They also screwed up mine! Buy one get one free ice cream they just gave me a free one so no spend lol.

will they take any bk voucher not just ice-cream?
This doesn't seem legit or nationwide. It may be that one store but for sure cannot be nationwide.
It's like going into Asda asking if i can scan my Tesco clubcard.
LOL I can see the cashiers face as someone hands in a Burger King voucher and 'demands' a freebie or money off their order. It might be ok if your local McD does this but I highly doubt all of them do so you may look like a right dipstick.

Actually I heard on here before about people doing this, and even if memory serves correct they take KFC vouchers.

Yes may vary by store as I was thinking if they did it would only be if their competition was local but the nearest BK from me is at least 10 miles away if not 15

When I asked the girl I asked "I have a mad question, I heard you take BK vouchers is this true" and she went "sure, its no problem" didn't even have to ask her supervisor the only thing she was unsure about was what ice creams you could get on the offer.

And have heard people on the site say it before.

And I never said it was nationwide, hence me saying I thought it would be linked to local competition, that being said as mentioned before theres no BK near this in over 10 miles.
Heat added, which makes your deal hotter than their burgers.
Given that most McDonalds outlets are franchised, so there are large numbers of 'owners' with varying business practices, I doubt very much whether this will be a national policy.

It may well apply to a small number of stores where they're under particular pressure from BK though.

Doesn't make sense then as one branch I tried it in was 15 or so miles from nearest BK, and other was about 20-30 miles from nearest BK (not counting service stations)

And these branches I tried were 100 miles apart in fact one was Scotland one England.
Do the macdonalds whoppers taste as nice as the burger king ones?

Believe it or not, up until a few years ago, Tesco accepted money off coupons from other supermarkets (£5 off when you spend £30 etc.). In addition, they accepted coupons for products that they stocked but you didn't necessarily have to buy them. This was a nationwide policy.

For a couple of years, we got free groceries. Them were the days...

Ta OP. Voted hot.

Don't remind me......
I used to save SO MUCH MONEY when supermarkets (Tesco and Asda) accepted ANY vouchers for ANY product - as long as they sold that product) without you having to buy the item....
Plus of course the £5 off a £25 spend - which you would use first of course!
The quit smoking vouchers and magazine vouchers were especially lucrative....
This certainly enabled me to survive through a very difficult few years.
Now I just survive on sell-by-date reduced food.

I don't know why everyone is questioning this...

Plenty of shops accept vouchers and deals from other shops these days, it common practise. Usually happens for fixed time, but certainly not unusual.

The franchise thing has nothing to do with it.

Franchises do not always have to take part in promotions and schemes.

This is different from like a Tesco accepting Asda vouchers for this reason.

I've tried Mcdonalds Quarter pounder with cheese and cheeseburger and Burger Kings cheeseburgers. I prefer McDonalds. The Burger King burger seemed like cheap quality beef, gristly and chewy. Also Burger King microwave their Burgers, whereas McDonalds cook them on the griddle.

I gave this heat because I want it to be true.
Crazy thing. I went to the local Maccys and jokingy passed the BK vouchers. There was bemusement, conferencing amongst staff, some giggling, some jaw dropping and then they were accepted. Was a prank so I wasnt expecting it, and not sure if they were just rewarding my courage. I walked out before anyone changed their mind
How do you get a whopper from McDonald's?

The closest that Mcdonald's have to a Whopper is probably the Big Tasty. But it's £4.09 for just the burger on its own!
What other shops accept money off vouchers from competitors? Got primark vouchers I'm not gonna use

Burgerking flame grill their burgers in a broiler. Always have. Years ago, they used to put the dressed burger into a microwave for 5 secs to melt the cold cheese that was put on it.
