Burger King - Over Charged on Sale Product
Ice Cream Promotion - Complaint
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- Aug 25,2012...After shopping with my family and my kids were exceptional during this outing I promised them all(3)ice cream after viewing their advertisement on television. I have always been a fast food junkie and after the addition of ice cream at Burger King I figured I would indulge and for 50 cents you can't beat that for the price.
Upon placing my order for 3 cones as advertised I was informed that the price was 89 cents per cone not 50 cents as the television ad had stated. Only upon prying the info out of the clerk that they indeed have 50 cent cones but what also informed that price was only valid if I purchased a meal. What the H*LL are you talking about as I guess no one had challenged him on this issue before.
My wife calmed me down and we proceeded to pay full price for the ice cream. The following night the commercial appeared on TV again and as luck would have it my TIVO was on so I saved it for my wife to view. Nowhere does it require you to purchase a meal in order to receive a ice cream cone for 50 cents. I am not about disappointing my kids and I was thinking, what if I had been a single parent with 2 kids and only 2 dollars available. Please don't fall prey to this scam.
The Burger King in question is located at 16711 Nacogdoches Rd. San Antonio, Texas 78266 Now the ad in the store reads: Add a cone for 50 cents ...meaning you may purchase a cone for dessert for 50 cent not you have to buy a meal to add the cone for 50 cents. Who the h*ll hires these people to run these stores. As far as I am concerned someone owes me some ice cream. This may appear petty but this over the top as far as stupidity of the fast food clerk. Thanks for listening
