The ultimate guide to scoring FREE burgers

There's nothing better than a burger, and if that burger hasn't cost you anything, it tastes even more delicious! Everyone loves a burger, whether it's 99p McDonalds cheeseburger, or a fancy AF one with a giant deep friend mac and cheese ball on top. However, burgers can be pretty pricey and its not something we can afford to treat ourselves to as often as we want to.

So we thought we'd create a guide with some tips and tricks letting you know how to grab yourself a free burger - so take notes.

When they run a free burger promotion, they will email you a date when they will be releasing tickets and all you need to do is claim one, and go down to your local Byron restaurant and enjoy your free burger!

Mystery Dining

So you may have heard of mystery shopping, well there's also mystery dining! This is where you sign up through one of the websites listed in our mystery shopping guide, then you get paid (and reimbursed) to go to a restaurant and have a meal. The whole point is that it's a "mystery" so you have to pretend to just be a normal customer, while you keep a close eye on the service, the cleanliness of the restaurant and the quality of the food. Sites often have restaurants as big as Five Guys available as well as lots of local pubs. You usually get to choose whatever meal you want, so burger fans - you're in luck.

The one downside of mystery dining is that you have to pay up front and you will be reimbursed most of the money back after. Always have a look at the menu in advance, and compare that to what you're able to get reimbursed/paid for your visit to make sure it's worthwhile.
