I don't quite understand how people are being 'conned'. When the promo isn't on, they pay 1.90 for 1 Big Mac. During the promo, they pay 1.90 for 2 Big Macs. OK, they may buy fries and a drink, but then they only pay 2.88, and still get an extra Big Mac. You seem to be saying that if they only got 1 mac, that is fair, but 2 for the same price is a con. Errrr, did anyone ever explain basic economics to you? Or maths, for that matter?
