Okay. Just read this article:
And my initial reaction was that it seems frivolous. And while I still think that’s true, the more I thought about it, the more I have to think there isn’t a point here.
Okay. To be clear, we’ve taken advantage of the Unlimited Refills deal in the past, and we were well aware of the 10 minute time between refills. But then you have to think about the fact that they are advertising this as UNLIMITED. Which means NO LIMITS. And yet, a 10 minute delay between fills is, by definition, a limit.
Of course, other places have similar plans, but don’t always call it “unlimited” because, well, it isn’t. They might call it the “All Day” drink plan or something like that where you get free refills all day long…but there is a time delay between those free refills.
So, is Universal wrong for advertising this as their UNLIMITED drink plan? I think they are. Because it’s not unlimited, by definition.
Do I think there should be a law suit? No. But then, what motivation would any company, including Universal, have for changing their false advertising if there wasn’t.
