Fast food doesn't get any better than Whataburger, and everyone knows that a Whataburger taquito is worth its weight in gold. Whataburger is partnering with Snapchat in their new contest based around the Snapchat app. The beloved Texas chain is giving fans the chance to win 1,000 taquitos and donate $1,000 to a charity of their choice. In addition to the winning prize of taquitos seemingly for life (how long would it take you to eat 1,000 taquitos?), the winner will also have the chance to take over Whataburger's Snapchat channel.
Want to enter to win free Whataburger breakfast taquitos? Here's how you can do it!
Go to Snapchat and follow @WhataburgerLife for the latest news, menu items and additions, and entertainment.
Snap @WhataburgerLife and tell the brand what you would do with the 1,000 free taquitos and which charity would receive your $1,000 donation.
Stay tuned on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for the announcement of the winner on Sept. 20.
As Whataburger's Vice President of Corporate Communications, Pam Cox, stated in a press release:
"We have fun interacting with our customers on social media, especially on Snapchat. We wanted to provide our Snapchat followers a way to show off their creativity, make a positive impact and have a little fun with our fan-favorite Taquitos along the way."
So have a little fun and enter! You never know if you'll win or not. For more information on the rules regarding the contest, read them over here.
Whataburger, a Texas staple since 1950 when the first location opened as a roadside stand in Corpus Christi, recently pledged around $2M to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, both short-term and long-term. Since Harvey made landfall, Whataburger donated $150,000 to the Red Cross and $500,000 to local food banks in the affected areas that would be distributed to areas in the greatest need.
The company also donated $1M to the Whataburger Family Foundation that will go towards helping employees affected by the natural disaster, providing items like clothing and food, and going as far to help with medical bills and monetary assistance when needed.
