I'm in agreement with the last few comments.
XL is almost too big....unless you're splitting it with somebody else right away, you're better off just getting a Large.

Am I the only noticing that coffee is $1 but other food prices went up?

I ordered a tea and a coffee and my tea price was 40 cent more than normal after this promo started.

Many people have noticed the price hikes over the past year or so. There's even an ongoing thread about it

It's not just Mcdonalds that has jacked up their prices. All fast food is super over priced now if paying regular price. $15 minimum wage increase probably doesn't help much either. The only time it seems really worth the trouble is when there's promotions and coupons

Their free promotions were for small (iirc) coffees only and if you wanted a larger size, you would pay the price difference. I think the $1 any size promotion is great.

It would be a different story if it was $1 for small coffees only, but that's not the case.

I brought an thermos to save the coffee for later :)

Minimum wage is far from $15/hr! It is planned to be $15/hr in Alberta, but that will be in late 2018 dollars, or about 2% less than 2017 dollars thanks to inflation.

He was referring to Ontario where minimum wage will be $14/hour in a month and a half then up to $15 at the start of 2019

$15 in 2019 isn’t $15 in 2017 dollars , it is less. More to the point, raising prices in advance of an increase in the minimum wage only makes sense if you lack competition or because your customers are willing to pay more, and therefore has nothing to do with the minimum wage.

What I suspect is more of an issue is the lack of tipping at McDonald’s. It is customary at Tim Hortons in most of Canada, particularly in rural areas but even in places like here in Moncton. And then you compound that competitive recruitment and retention issue with the fact that young people often don’t have cars or even driver’s licences anymore, and McDonald’s more awkward locations for pedestrian and transit using workers.

Tim Hortons recently raise Boston Cream prices in Ontario and Alberta, where people generally don’t tip. Probably not a coincidence.

Tipping at counter service places? Don't get me started. The electronic payments are killing the micro-tips. McD is increasing prices because they can. They have to pay for all of the new electronic kiosks somehow. If the minimum wage keeps going up as they are, inflation will steal a lot of the gains back. As a minimum wage worker, if you need to work an hour to pay lunch today, you will have to work an hour to pay for lunch in 2019.

I don't think so. Tim's coffee is just getting worst. I started to drink McD's coffee yrs ago and the quality has been very good most of the time.
It’s not Tim’s current supplier. It’s Tim’s former supplier before Burger King purchased them. Tim Horton’s does it in-house now to save on costs.

Now I can say with 100% confidence that McDonald's coffee is definitely better than Tim Hortons.
I've pretty much been ordering one all over the city, while out and about and there's no variations in taste at all :)
