The Wendy’s and Burgertime Food Giveaway (1983)

While I was at the Retroist Meet Up at the 1984 Arcade I played a bit of BurgerTime…and I really started to get hungry…wish I would have known about this back in 1982!

From the excellent Geek Vintage site:
“In 1983, Mattel Electronics teamed up with Wendy’s for a Burger Time promotional giveaway. If you purchased a Mattel Burgertime handheld game or BurgerTime game cartridge for the Mattel Burgertime, Intellivision or Atari 2600 game systems, you could send in for a free $5 booklet of Wendy’s gift certificates.”

  1. Not yet, Vic. I have to run out and buy some Xbox Live points first. I don’t have enough to get it. The trailer looks like it’s a lot of fun though. I buy the cards rather than use my credit card.

  2. Same here, friend. I think the first part of Telltale’s Jurassic Park game comes out on Tuesday for XBLA, so you might want to pick up even more cards. :)
