Shamrock Shake Price Differences!

From Source

Does anyone else love Shamrock Shakes? These minty, electric green delights are only available at McDonald's during the month of March. I might have already had three of them this month.

I'm sure we're all familiar with the fact that prices at McDonald's and other fast food restaurants are usually more expensive at airports and malls. What I didn't realize that individual product prices could differ over just a few miles. My first two shakes were from a McDonald's in one town (Chanhassen) and my third one was from a McDonald's just one town and less than five miles away (Excelsior) but was 20 cents cheaper.

Lesson learned: it might be worth it to price compare at local fast food restaurants if there is an item you buy repeatedly. I will probably save at least a dollar this month by the time I reach my Shamrock Shake limit. Between this and Easter candy, it's a good thing I added a gym membership last month!
