Price Hike


Confession: I've been to McDonald's twice this week! On Monday night when I was dying of hunger after my blind date and Monday morning after I took Sadie to the vet. Not only twice in one week but twice in one day! Gasp! After vet appointments, Sadie Kate and I both need a little treat. So I get a large sweet tea and she gets a doggie cookie that they keep handy for puppy passengers. But I noticed something. The price of the large sweet tea at McDonald's used to be $1. And I loved that because it gave me an excuse to use up my unwanted change to make up the $0.08 tax. Much to my surprise, Micky D's has raised the price of sweet tea from $1 to $1.29. Now of course I can afford the extra $0.29 for the random cup of tea. But that's a 29% price hike. Kind of a giant leap there Golden Arches. That's the only thing I buy regularly (every few weeks after I leave the vet) so I have no idea if they raised the prices of all their menu items that much or if its just the tea. But considering tea is cheap to make....I'm just saying that seems like a rather large leap to me.

For all who have been so sweet to worry about my baby girl.... She is doing much better. No signs of having had a seizure. Which is good. It would be fabulous if she never had one again but we are taking it one day at a time right now. So far, so good. This week and last, our vet appointments were just for her yearly shots and such. Thank you a million times over for all of your kind words!!

I think that the tea is too sweet, but all of my family and friends are addicted. I prefer Chick Fil A's tea.Now, I don't feel so bad about paying the Chick Fil A price.

I am glad that sadie is doing well! I noticed the price hike at McDonald's the last time I went because I got a big mac meal and a Mcflurrie(sorry this is what happenes when you live at the library and give into what you feel like eating rather than what you know you should eat) and it was like $10!

That doesn't make any sense because the other day I saw a billboard that advertised ALL drinks at Mickey D's for one dollar!

Oh goodness! Well, it must be a trend because last night I noticed all the new songs I was buying on iTunes were $1.29 and not .99!!

I'm glad sweet Sadie girl is doing well...and you are so right about price hikes. I have noticed other price cuts to try and get customers. Chick fil a gives out a free breakfast entree every Wed. morning. And I just saw a commercial from Pizza Hut- 3 pizzas for $15. Go figure. I buy the gallon of Chick fil a tea for 3.99 and fill up at home. Have a great day!
