When you buy a meal at McDonald’s. The area McDonald’s currently advertise on their marquees and windows $1 drinks, any size.
But, if you buy a meal, they charge you regular price.
At two different McDonald’s, I’ve asked about this. Both times I was told, “That’s the way it rings up.” I guess any price a computerized system rings up is unquestionable.
Seems to me this is false or grossly misleading advertising. You may say, why the fuss over a few cents. But, consider the huge number of customers McDonald’s serves every day. This overcharge could come to millions of dollars every day.
This is the sort of thing that really gets my craw. Ripping off a lot of people for just a little money. Few notice, fewer complain. But, it adds up to really big bucks. I’ve submitted a complaint to the Ohio Attorney General’s office. We’ll see what happens.
