WHAT ADL SAYS:
The only way of identifying if the deal is worthwhile is by comparing it against the usual price. Hence, let’s do some calculations…
As this deal only entails one to certain burgers, sides and drinks, we have summarized the original price of the items valid for this deal in the table below. Once again, do note that these prices are again taken from the menu at Freshness Burger Singapore Facebook page.
In total, everything will add up to $34.10 as stated in the deal. This means that you can actually save $34.10 – $19.90 = $14.20. That’s an awfully reasonable amount of money.
Of course our above calculations are based on each item ala carte price, and it may not be a good representation of the amount of savings involved for this deal. Technically speaking, this deal entails one to a total of 3 set meals with 1 set meal having 1 burger, 1 drink, and 1 side dish. Since the price of this deal is $19.90, should we divide it by 3, the total price of 1 set meal will be $6.60. This price of $6.60 for 1 set meal should be the price that we should look at.
ADL did our research and we found out that currently, Freshness burger are having several promotions. However, the most relevant one to this deal will be the $2 off total meal promotion. This promotion entails one to $2 off total price should one order a burger with a side order and a drink. Hence, the question is whether by making use of this promotion instead of this deal, will one gets to enjoy more savings?
As seen clearly from the above table, the most expensive set meal will be a Classic Cheese Burger ($6.90) with a Chicken Nuggets/Avocado Salad ($3.50) and a Pineapple Soda ($3.80). This set meal will cost $14.20 in total. Using the $2 off promotion, one will have to pay a total of $12.20. However, for this deal, it is only $6.60.
The cheapest set meal will be a Bacon Omelet Burger ($3.50) with French Fries ($2.80) and a Cold Brew Organic Coffee ($2.70). This set meal will cost $9 in total. Using the $2 off promotion, one will have to pay a total of $9. However, for this deal, it is only $6.60.
Hence, we do believe that this deal is truly worth the money. Even with the current $2 off total price promotion, one is still not able to have a lower price for 1 set meal as compared the price of $6.60 (for 1 set meal) for this deal ($19.90 for 3 set meals). Another thing we like about this deal is that there is no validity restrictions for redemption. One can redeem it anytime anyday!
The only thing we can really pinpoint on this deal is that it is only valid in Woodlands and the other in Clark Quay. We would of course prefer outlets that are more centralised or in town for instance. Nonethless, Woodlands and Clarke Quay are both accessible via MRT and hence, transportation to these outlets should be of no issue.
As for the quality of Freshness Burger, some of us at ADL has tried Freshness Burger before and according to them, there is only one word to describe – AWESOME. The burger is soft, and is totally different from the usual Mcdonald or KFC kind of burger. Instead, it is more towards the MOS burger kind of burgers, but with twice the tastiness. However, one bad thing about Freshness Burger is that the portion is a bit small, and most likely, if you are a male you will not find 1 set meal filling at all.
So what do you guys think? Have you tried Freshness Burger before? Any particular recommendations? Let us know in the comment section below!
