    Hate to say this but "DUH!!!!"
    Why did it take so long for someone in the fast food industry to notice the long lines at the fountains and the cashier counters of convenience stores? It ain't because we like to wait on slobs buying lottery tickets and cigarettes just so we can have our soda "fix" for the day.
    And while you're at it McD's (if anyone's listening), how about expanding your soda offerings? Ever heard of COKE ZERO, one of the fastest growing bevs in the world! Cut your prices, offer CZ, I'm there EVERY day and I'm probably buying something else as well!

    They started doing test marketing over here at mcdonalds and I heard from small format guys it is doing "ok" but the bottled drinks are like 1.89 but they offer pepsi products like mt dew and code red and gatorade 20 oz and red bull..so its giving a good variety for consumers..although its not that great of a bargain for Pepsi but slowly and surely we slide our way through the cracks and crevices ;-).

    Cool

    mcdonald's should start offering McRib all year long and they should add a coney dog to the menu as well. i doubt cheaper soda will attract that many more customers (for as the article pointed out, i wouldn't want to wait in mcdonald's long line just for a soda).

    How about a cafeteria classic.....McSloppy Joe sandwich made with ground beef and Sloppy Joe sauce.
    A good beer batter corn dog would be cool.
    I would love to see McD's follow BK's lead and sell frozen Cokes.

    Every summer here for the last couple of years 44oz sodas have been 79-89cents.

    Just noticed they're doing this promotion here in the mid-west so it must be a national thing, "Any fountain drink: $1"

    Do they offer refills for dine-in customers in the U.S.?

    Of course, self serve fountain drimnks are all you can drink. LOL
    A long time ago McD's had a refill policy. You could ask for a refill
    and the server would give you a refill. I'm not sure, what the current
    policy is but I'm betting that if you ask for a refill they will give you one????
