The Double Cheeseburger Loophole

Once upon a time McDonald’s used to offer the Double Cheeseburger as part of its Loose Change menu.  However,  Mcdonald’s has since reinstated the Double Cheeseburger as part of its full priced menu for an extortionate $4.35. Now the closest substitute is the Double Beef n Bacon burger for $3.00. But what if you are poor, Jewish or Islamic? This new product is really discriminating and McDonald’s bacon is generally below average, making the new substitute largely inferior.

Well to honour diversity, here is the Double Cheeseburger Loophole, which is essentially an extension of The Cheesy Cheeseburger Loophole. This will get you a Double Cheeseburger for $2.90. $1.45 cheaper than the full priced menu, and 10 cents cheaper than the Double Beef n Bacon burger, eliminating the free pork dilemma.

How it works
The only difference between a cheeseburger and a double cheeseburger is an extra slice of cheese and an extra patty. As you can transform the Cheesy BBQ burger into a Cheeseburger with an extra slice of cheese for $2, for an additional 90 cents, the cost of an extra patty, you can make a Double Cheeseburger.

    What to do
    Order the item, if you have a server with at least a IQ of 80, you will receive a Double Cheeseburger missing only the ketchup.
    Open the burger and spread the ketchup with anything you can use to substitute a knife (straws work quite well).
    Reassemble the burger and you now have a Double Cheeseburger and an extra 200 calories compared to a Cheeseburger.

    Shame/Stupidity analysis

    As with all loopholes McDonald’s likely has these pricing discrepancies to take advantage of the average person’s shame or stupidity. Because the only difference between a Cheeseburger and a Double Cheeseburger is the extra patty which costs 90 cents and an extra slice of cheese at 50 cents, you can transform the Cheeseburger into a Double Cheeseburger for $4.00. This infers that McDonald’s values the stupidity of customers who purchase the Double Cheeseburger, and don’t know the difference between a Double Cheeseburger and a Cheeseburger at 35 cents.

    The base item of the Double Cheeseburger Loophole involves transforming a $2 Cheeseburger with an extra slice of cheese, into a Double Cheeseburger with just one 90 cent patty. The only reason one will avoid doing this with perfect information is a shame value greater than the $1.45 price differential between retail cost and base cost.

    As $1.45>$0.35, we can conclude from this that for McDonald’s the value of shame > value of stupidity.

The Cheesy Cheeseburger Loophole

The Australian cheeseburger reality

The Australian cheeseburger reality

Gone are the days where a McDonald’s cheeseburger cost less than a 2 dollar coin. Currently, a McDonald’s cheeseburger is $2.60, a minimal combination of three coins, which is also similar to the total number of bites you can get from one cheeseburger. Well my friends, I have found a way to obtain a cheeseburger for $2 instead of $2.60. This completely changes the old fundamental inequality as now the minimal combination of coins required is less than the number of cheeseburger bites obtainable (1 < 3 , therefore = winning in life!). Oh, and before I get to mention, this loophole gets you an extra slice of cheese, making it super cheesy!

The Cheesy Cheeseburger Loophole

Order the following:

  • One cheesy BBQ burger with:
    • No BBQ sauce
    • Add mustard
    • Add pickles
    • Some free ketchup packets

    Total cost = $2, as the Cheesy BBQ burger is on the Loose Change menu

    What to do

    If you need to be less shifty here’s the ordering sentence:

    “Hi can I please have a cheesy BBQ burger with mustard instead of BBQ sauce and can you add pickles?”

    95 per cent of the time your request will be granted. However, there are times at McDonald’s restaurants where you get a really stupid server you can’t understand your request, or a really smart server who wants to extort your full willingness to pay.

    Conditional to your request being granted, you will receive a cheeseburger with an additional slice of cheese, only missing ketchup.To fix this, simply open up the burger, and squirt all the free Heinz ketchup onto the top of the bun, distribute the ketchup evenly around the bun using either a straw or $1 fries.

    Savings Analysis

    Assuming McDonald’s Australia has fairly priced all the items on its menu, then we can value the product from the Cheesy Cheeseburger Loophole to be $3.10 after we account for the extra slice of cheese McDonald’s prices at $0.50. Pretty picture below.

    Given the loophole only sets you back $2, this means you are really winning by $1.10, even though your cash savings are only a meagre 60 cents. Time to buy two 30 cent cones with the loose change you will gain from shamefully exploiting the Loose Change menu!
