the boy & i felt like having burgers for lunch but not the full meal, because we had a late breakfast. so i decided i'll order a mcvalue meal and another burger alacarte.
he wanted a big mac & i, a spicy chicken mcdeluxe.
that's when i noticed the difference.
a mcvalue meal with either burger costs rm7.95 each, while for alacarte, a big mac costs rm6.70 & spicy chicken mcdeluxe, rm7.55.
if i ordered a big mac mcvalue meal & a spicy chicken mcdeluxe, it would cost rm7.95 + rm7.55 = rm15.50 plus tax. if i ordered a spicy chicken mcdeluxe mcvalue meal & a big mac, it would cost rm7.95 + rm6.70 = rm14.65 plus tax, or about 85sen cheaper for the same items.
so, if you had to order a combination meal like i did, would you be also doing mental calculations to save a bit?
or, am i just overdoing it?
btw, our local mcD allows free refill of soft drinks; however, i don't know if this unwritten & unspoken offer applies nationwide. if your skin is thick enough, try asking. nothing ventured, nothing gained. heh heh!
