McDonald's Corporation Complaint - Always Check Your Reciepts!
MT. HOLLY, NEW JERSEY -- I am a regular visitor to McDonalds (store # 6466 - Mt. Holly, N. J.) each day for a large coffee. The charge for the coffee is $1.00 plus tax. I have no problem paying that. One day in late September 2008 (exact date unknown) I went to McDonalds & straight to work early but had to wait a couple hours to start. While conversing with a friend there, she mentioned she was very hungry & I told her I could go for another cup of coffee at McDonalds & she asked that I get her a "sausage, egg & cheese meal" & make the drink my coffee. I would then pay her for my coffee when I got back. I went to McDonalds, came back with the meal, & checked the receipt. With the meal, my large coffee cost $1.49! The next day I asked the store manager about it & she told me "That's what the charge is & it's cheaper to get it "à la carte". On September 29th (I have the receipts for this day), after paying for my coffee & checked my receipt & it was correct at $1.00 plus tax. I then asked the overnight manager (he was still on duty) to ring me up for a "sausage, egg & cheese meal" to see what the charge would be for the coffee. Everything was the same including the $1.49 charge for the coffee! He was surprised & said "That's not right! The coffee should be cheaper if not the same price." I continue to go there for coffee each morning because I meet with a couple friends each day but I refuse to get a meal there until they straighten this issue out. I do ask any customer getting a meal to check their receipts. I ask you all to do the same too. Thank you.
