For the upcoming National Cheeseburger Day on September 18, it should come as no surprise that the world’s largest fast-food chain, McDonald’s, is getting in on the action, announcing that it will be giving away free cheeseburgers to celebrate one of the country’s favorite sandwiches, according to Thrillist.

However, in a delightful twist on the standard deal or discount, McDonald’s left it up to its customers to decide which of their signature cheeseburgers would be given away: the classic Cheeseburger, a Double Cheeseburger or the McDouble.

On September 12 and 13, customers voted online on what type of burger they want McDonalds to give away on National Cheeseburger Day.  Results of the poll were announced on September 14, with the winning spot going to the Double Cheeseburger .

While the company operates more than 40,000 franchises worldwide, according to Statista, you can’t just stroll in to your nearest Mickey D’s and take advantage of this national day deal. The free cheeseburger offer is only available through the McDonalds app on September 18. And you have to make a $1 purchase to get the free burger.
