Burger King’s $1, $2, and $3 Stacker deals offer some decent value, but a Consumerist reader known as Stephen did the math and worked out how you can get the most bacon and cheese for your money.
As the math after the break illustrates, if you buy three Single Stackers for $3 instead of the standard $3 Stacker, you get double the bacon and one extra slice of cheese.
I just ran across Burger King’s latest “deal” tonight, concerning its Stacker sandwiches. While there’s some good value to be had, BK’s math has me thinking it’s been taking lessons from Target.
You can get a single, double, or triple Stacker for $1, $2, or $3.
The single has one beef patty, one slice of cheese, and two
half-slices of bacon. The double has two patties, still one slice of
cheese, and three half-slices of bacon. The triple has three patties,
two slices of cheese, and still three half-slices of bacon.
If you buy three singles and put them together, you end up with an
extra slice of cheese, and double the bacon you’d get just compared to
ordering the triple alone. While that may get a little messy, you
could easily just take the bottom buns off two singles for a
quick-and-easy “double” with one more slice of both cheese and of
bacon than you’d get ordering the proper double Stacker.
