National Cheeseburger Day Deals: Wendy's, McDonald's and Burger King

It's National Cheeseburger Day, and franchises are offering deals - as long as you use their app.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — It's National Cheeseburger Day on this Monday, September 18, 2023. While the biggest fast-food burger chains are all offering deals today, some of the deals are available for a week or more. The catch to all of the deals, you have to use the app to make your order. 

Wendy's Deal:

You can get a Junior Bacon Cheeseburger for just one cent with any purchase, as long as you make it on the Wendy's app. This deal goes from September 18, 2023, through September 22, 2023.

McDonald's Deal:

You can get a Double Cheeseburger for just 50 cents through the McDonald's app. There is a limit to one burger per customer. By the way, that 50-cent price first debuted in 1982. 

Burger King's Deal:

You can get a free Cheeseburger with any $1 purchase and you must be part of the Royal Perks Reward Program, which is, of course, their app. 

History of the burger: 

If you relish history, then here are a few details on the cheeseburger. The hamburger was in existence in the early 1900s, but the cheeseburger didn't make its debut until about 1924. It wasn't until 1935 that a restaurant actually trademarked the word, "cheeseburger". 

Depending on where you live, cheeseburgers have different toppings, right down to the kind of mayonnaise. In North Carolina, there will be fighting words if you don't use Duke's mayo. Other states put chili or slaw on their burger. Don't forget avocado if you're in the west. And what about the pickles? Do you put it on the burger or does it belong in a spear on the side of the sandwich? You decide. If you're like the late and great Jimmy Buffett, you like it with lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57, and French-fried potatoes!
