I had to double check to see if it was a late April Fool’s joke but nope, it’s not.
Apparently Arby’s (yes, THAT Arby’s – the 3,300-restaurant strong sandwich chain that’s been around since 1964) is bringing back sandwiches served on King’s Hawaiian buns. And to promote that, it’s offering trips to Hawaii for just $6 (because that’s the cost of the sandwich). But there’s a catch or two:
The entire trip only lasts 24 hours. You get flown to Hawaii, get to sit on a beach for 6 hours, eat Arby’s and then get flown home. Doesn’t suck, but it’s not exactly a typical Hawaiian vacation. And let’s not even talk about the jet lag… 😉
“Arby’s $6 Hawaiian Getaway flies you to Honolulu to see the sights—all three Arby’s King’s Hawaiian sandwiches. No volcanoes. No pineapple farms. Just you, sweet buns, tender meats, and a Hawaiian paradise to eat them in.”
They’re only offering 10 of these tickets on a first come, first served basis – half on Friday, April 12, and half on Monday, April 15 (5 each day).
Here’s what they said on their Twitter:
Fly to Hawaii. Eat @KingsHawaiian sandwiches. Fly back. Only $6.
