World-Record Attempt in Hollywood: Largest Coupon

Jack in the Box is going for the glory (and an 80-foot burger coupon, too, that anyone can use).

    Jack in the Box
    Want to behold what may be the World's Biggest Coupon? The Jack in the Box 80-foot-long coupon will go on display at the W Hotel on Wednesday, March 25. (And it can be redeemed, too).

    Keeping a stack of coupons held to your refrigerator door, courtesy of a strong magnet, has its pros and cons.

    One potential con is you only ever seem to notice the very largest coupons in the stack, the ones that stick out, revealing their product. The ones you always grab when leaving the house to eat or shop.

    Jack in the Box has that whole "notice this coupon" thing wrapped up for burger buffs, and they don't even need to put the money-saving piece of paper on the fridge door. It'll be displayed on the side of the W Hotel in Hollywood for a full day, and it will be a rather eye-catching 80 feet in length.

    Even in this age of super-mondo-huge-o refrigerators, we're still thinking an 80-foot coupon will overlap the doors, just a bit. Probably would cover the whole kitchen, truly.

    So what's the coupon for? It's redeemable for a buy one/get one Buttery Jack burger. Nope, you can't leave the W Hotel with an 80-footer of a coupon tucked under your arm, but you can take a photo of the colossal coupon and show the snapshot at any Jack in the Box in the country.

    For sure, the Guinness World Records honchos are going to show up to eyeball the mammoth money-saver before it can be given the mantel of World's Largest Coupon. The whole shebang is kicking off at the Jack in the Box on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Cahuenga Avenue on Wednesday, March 25, just ahead of the coupon's unveiling outside the W Hotel. 

    For sure, there shall be free Buttery Jacks there, given away in the parking lot of the W, and other celebrating-style goodies (DJ-spun tunes, a selfie station, you got it). 

    For sure, there's a hashtag: #WorldsLargestCoupon.

    For sure, you'll need to snap your pic on March 25. We live in a world where the coupons under the magnets on our refrigerator expire, and where 80-foot buy-one-get-one-free deals are only displayed at swanky Tinseltown hotels for so long.

    Tick tock, coupon collectors and burger buffs. Tick tock.
