Cold Days mean Hot Deals in the U.P.


A national fast–food chain is having a little fun with the weather…and making it a little easier to warm back up with some hot sandwiches.  The deal at McDonald’s is for the Big Mac and the sausage McMuffin with egg.

Buy one, and get a second one for a price that correlates to the temperature the previous day.  The readings are taken at Sawyer International Airport at noon.  Yesterday, that temperature was only three degrees.  So today, the second sandwich would cost three cents.

McDonald’s calls the promotion “Cold Days, Hot Deals.”  It lasts through February 10 at participating restaurants in the U.P. and Northern Wisconsin.
