2674

We like to have fun at Mr Burger. And giving someone burgers for life if they change their last name to ‘Burger’ seems about the most fun thing we can do.

So we’re doing it, and here are the details.

How to enter:

– Change your last name to ‘Burger’ via this handy form

Men, women & gender non-specific over the age of 18 can enter. We’ll even cover the application fee, once you’ve done the deed.

– Send us an email with a copy of the name change confirmation from the Australian Government.

– There can be more than one winner, it’s not just the first person to change their name!

– "Free Burgers for Life" constitutes 7 free "Mr Burger" burgers a week (per person)

Surely somebody from the OzBargain community will Broden this!

THis has now been cancelled by the Vic Government

          @The Land of Smeg:

          Even better ;p

        •  

          @The Land of Smeg: then you need a fake ID… 14.ID must be presented at the point of purchase with the appropriate voucher, to ensure legitimacy of the successful winner. These vouchers are not transferable and may not be exchanged for money or awarded to other people to present at the point of purchase.

          @batsxs: you could get a real ID and keep it even after name change back.

        • -1 vote

          @The Land of Smeg: it becomes a fake/invalid ID after you did that…and even so you can only use it for 10 years then you need to redo this again…

        •  

          @batsxs: I'm not sure of exact legality, someone posted that it is legal to use previous names, just don't update that particular form of ID with your new name. Expired passports and drivers license are valid as ID up to 2 years after expiry, so you get 12 years. I think it's illegal to have 2 passports or 2 drivers licenses, you have to hand in the old one or declare it lost/destroyed

        'lose' your drivers licence (the one with burger) and get replacement. change name back and hence drivers licence etc. retain 'lost' licence for the burgers!

    For the mountain of hassles involved in changing your last name (cost, license, credit cards, banks, insurance, house titles, loans, online everything etc etc etc) you'd want to be really young, unencumbered and probably a little bit stupid to take up this offer.

    What a hilarious deal. What if your last name was "Berger"? He could be like, "this is burger in my own language".

    Btw…

    Sadly you only get seven burgers per week according the the T&C's…a fella could waste away to nothing with those kind of restrictions!

    Fun fact: in Oz, changing one's name doesn't imply that the previous name ceases to exist. In fact, one can change their name more than once and legally can use all names.

    Words of caution:

    1. any sort of security clearances will frown upon name changes and may result in extended (cavity) searches…
    2. Various states have provisions about fraudulent or improper use of names which may or may not cover getting free food…
    3. There are further exclusions and restrictions on certain people and certain names - unlikely Burger King or even Hamburglar will be accepted
    •  

      They're all legal names, same as people who marry and change their name. But get ready for a mountain of paperwork and hassle and having to carry a certified copy of your Change of Name certificate everywhere with you. Not to mention multiple times companies will screw it up and you'll get duplicate accounts and other issues.

      The fact is nearly 100% of electronic systems require you to have only one current last name and they have no ability to store more. So, yeah… Legally you can use all previous legal names. Practically it's a giant PITA.

        Can I get a link to proof that someone who is married can legally still use their maiden name?

        i.e. Suzie blue got married to John Green and changed her name to Suzie Green. She can use either Suzie Green or Suzie Blue is she desires, legally.

        • +4 votes

          Suzie blue. She needed the money… until she got married.

        •  

          You just use your marriage certificate in place of a change of name certificate without further application - so it doesn't matter what surname you use after marriage as you have your birth certificate & marriage certificate to act as evidence for either.
