Memorial Day isn't going to involve a giant crowd of friends fishing beers out of a sweaty cooler or jostling with parkgoers over who had the public grill first. But you're making a mistake if you don't think it can still involve grilling, beer, and burgers. 

Though, if you're feeling lazy or just want to get your pre-Memorial Day burger fix ASAP, Whataburger is going to get the wheels greased. From May 18-25, you can get a free Whataburger when you purchase one online. You'll only be able to do it online, though, either through the Whataburger site or the Whataburger app. 

That's double the Fasties-nominated entrée for the same price as a single burger. Clearly, the southern burger slingers don't have pressing concerns about the beef shortages that have impacted Wendy's.

Additionally, if you're unfamiliar with the chain's app, you'll find other freebies there. Its reward program gives you a reward for five Whataburger visits, letting you choose between a Whataburger Jr., a Taquito with Cheese, Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit, and other items. Get your BOGO burgers and you're one-fifth of the way to another free burger.
