Here’s a cute promo being offered by Canadian McDonald’s restaurants and a great way to show support for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
As advertised in the image to the right:
Bring home the spirit of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games with one of 5 uniquely designed re-usable aluminum water bottles.
Each 500mL bottle captures winter athletes in exciting sports action poses and comes with a clip to easily attach to almost anything.
only $3.49 each* plus tax
*With any food or beverage purchase. For a limited time only. Quantities limited-vary by design. While supplies last. At participating McDonald’s® restaurants in Canada. Designs offered in sequence. Ask which designs are available. Some designs may not be available.
Considering these rather trendy, eco-friendly, sport bottles are also rather pricey in most stores, at $3.49 it’s also a great buy!
I think the cheapest I’ve seen for generic, solid coloured sport bottles was at Winners / HomeSense for $6 on clearance - but are normally priced at around $10. Anywhere else you’re looking at $12 - $25.
To take advantage of the offer, a food and/or drink item must be purchased in addition to the cost of the bottle. With that said, McDonald’s Dollar Drink Days remains in effect and offers the best value from their menu at only $1 plus tax on any size fountain drink which includes free refills! You’re looking at a total cost of $5.07 (taxes in) for the cost of the bottle and drink.
This is awful. Aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease - there’s a reason more and more people are buying stainless steel cookwear. Aluminum oxidizes, it leeches into anything that comes into contact with it. Imagine what happens when one of these bottles is filled with juice? The only bottles that are safe to drink from are stainless steel. I wouldn’t touch one of these with a ten foot pole. Shame on McDonalds for cheaping out on their customers.
McDs been cheaping out their customers all these years with that crap they call food. Heck, the contaminated juice will probably kill some of the carcinogenic and buttexpandic properties of the food.
With respect to the advertisement where a little girl approaches Patrick Chen, asking for an autograph, why does she spell Mommy as MONNY?
lol Max! I’ve seen the commercial you’re referring to and it’s so cute. The little girl actually says M-O-M-M-Y but in the way it’s spoken, the M’s may not have been so clear when pronounced.
