TWIN burger joints Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s have offered a so-called mystery offer to celebrate International Burger Day.
In honor of International Burger Day on Sunday, the two restaurants are offering My Rewards members a chance to buy a burger through either the Carl’s Jr. or Hardee’s apps in exchange for a surprise reward.
Customers who buy a burger through the app, whether it’s just a single burger or a combo meal will get a free Famous Star.
A Famous Star with cheese is the name for a burger at either food joint.
It comes with a charbroiled beef patty, American cheese, and loads of condiments including the restaurant’s Special Sauce.
The mystery comes in with how often you get the Famous Star reward.
Members can either get a free Famous Star with a purchase for a day, a week, a month, or even every week for a whole year.
But there’s a catch. My Rewards members need to place an order using one of the restaurant’s apps or websites.
“International Burger Day is the perfect moment for Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s to recognize and celebrate our members who share our passion for charbroiled burgers,” said Jason Seeley, vice president of digital marketing in a statement.
“My Rewards members always have access to exclusive offers, but the mystery Famous Star offer is especially significant as it gives us an exciting way to invite them back again and again.”
If you are wondering what the difference between Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s is, there’s not much.
They are both owned by the same parent company CKE Restaurants.
Both fast-food joints have worked in tandem since 1997 and their chains are marketed pretty much the same with identical logos of a smiling star and similar menu items.
The main difference is location.
Hardee’s can be seen when traveling through the South, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest of the United States.
However, Carl’s Jr. is popular in the Western U.S.
