    $1 any Size fountain drinks are back!

    While I can't confirm 100%, the rumour mill seems to be pointing to a start date of April 30th 2013.

    I will update this thread as more info comes available.

    .

    04/30/13:

    Start date is confirmed. TV ads are playing, signage is up in most stores, the promotions page on the website displays it, AND... I Just got back with my $1 large Fruitopia.

    It's ON!

    I was so disappointed last year when the large ice coffees weren't $1 like the year before.

    Thanks.
    The McDonald's ladies told me there is also a button for cold water - free.

    Yippee! Sometimes a spot of Fruitopia or Coke on the way home from Walmart is just the thing to get me home in warm weather.

    I don't believe it will. I got a tip on this, and it was commented as "fountain drinks" ... since iced coffee is not technically a "fountain drink" I suspect it won't be part of the promo.

    But once I get a view of the promo materials, I'll have more details.

    Again, not expecting them to include the iced coffee as they did a couple of years ago. The US promo doesn't even include it this year - and they did last year, even when they didn't here.

    Last year the medium was included, not the large. The large was $1.50. At least here it was.

    That must have been a local choice. It was always "any size" here.

    Within McDonald's there are corporate owned stores and franchise stores. The Franchise stores can choose to participate in promos or not - AND they can set their own prices. The Corporate owned stores, on the other hand, are fully involved with the promos and pricing is consistent.

    I was talking about the iced coffees. The fountain drinks were any size. The iced coffees were included for us last year for $1 for the med and $1.50 for the large.

    Iced coffee was included in this promo last year. Two years ago, it was any sized soft drinks and iced coffee. Last year it was any size soft drinks and small/medium iced coffee.

    I believe there was backlash when they didn't include large - I doubt they'll want the questions/comments of frustrated customers asking why iced coffee isn't included at all this year. It's not so easy for a company to build expectations in their consumer base and then fail to meet them. But then again, I guess you never know. I would think they make insane profits off of this, since iced coffee and soft drinks cost them next to nothing, but again, who knows what corporate will decide.

    I guess the Iced Coffee thing was a regional thing. It wasn't available at the stores in and around New Brunswick.

    The details I am getting are from within Atlantic Canada, so obviously this promo (when I get more info) will vary between regions. -- as is typical with McDonalds anyway, as the coupon books would also indicate.
