So many banks right now are turning to what they call asterisk-free checking. The idea is to get away from so many fine print exclusions and extra rules that rip off even the most observant Cheapsters with their complexity. These technicalities are annoying when it comes to any product or service – not just with financial matters.
So, what does that have to do with Qdoba? On a lesser scale, we often have to grapple with similar technicalities when ordering at restaurants. You can have guacamole on your burrito, but look out for the small up-charge. You want both sour cream and queso on the same meal? Cha-ching again. These little extras can take your lunch from the affordable to the luxury meal before you know it, and Qdoba recognizes how much it irritates us Cheapsters.
Like the banks moving towards asterisk-free checking, Qdoba is saying, “Down with up-charging.” They are only going to charge one flat price for each delicious entree, so you can enjoy your perfect blend of ingredient flavors without having to pull out a calculator and add up the extra costs. You want queso, guacamole, lettuce, cheese, and all the other fine Qdoba products? Go for it – extras are no longer charged extra.
