I'm asking you the same question. Based on news reports and direct information posted on Qwest Field's website, the vendor sells alcohol in two ounce amounts, 16 and 20. These are labeled medium and large. Why would they create shorter wider 20 oz cups for any reason? Both the medium and large cup contained 20 oz. If any company were to do an action for the purpose of ripping people off and raking in cake profits, wouldn't both cups equate to the lower oz amount? Both cups hold 20 ounces. People could have purchased the medium and saved the $1.25, but they weren't shorted any ounces by purchasing the large. They simply paid the full purchase price. It just looks like a simple mistake to me by the company who runs alcohol sales (Levy Restaurants) at Qwest field.
Either way, someone is still being ripped off. You're not helping your case.

The good people at Qwest Field would want you to believe you were getting a deal. You're saying both the large and small cup hold 20 ounces, and everyone buying the smaller cup is getting a deal. However, not everyone is buying the smaller cup. So even if they're getting their 20 ounces buying the larger cup, they believe they're getting more than someone buying a smaller cup, and they're not. It's not any different than both cups small and large simply holding 16 ounces. The beers are overpriced anyway so they'll gladly give you the 20 ounces in both cups, but they're tricking people in believing they're paying more for something they're not.

I think you can agree to this.
Yes, both the medium and large cups hold 20 ounces. The medium IS suppose to 16 ounces. I agree with you in direct correlation that people buying the large could of purchased the medium for the lower price, but do you see any intent by a company to give away four free ounces by paying $1.25 less? Look at it from a financial perspective. If you are giving away 20 ounces on each purchase, wouldn't you take the option of giving four ounces less when people paid $1.25 less?

Still not making sense. You just said both cups hold 20 ounces, so how could they be "giving away" 4 free ounces or four ounces less either way?

That's exactly what I was thinking, but Illicit started changing it up talking about they charge the same for 20 oz as the 16 oz only in the playoffs, but he never addressed why the cups hold the same amount of liquid. The only way he would be making any sense is if Qwest Field admitted to creating a slightly different shaped cup that holds the same amount of liquid. In no ecosystem would this be considered sound business, so I'd call bulls**t in that regard. He's just as retarded as I thought
They did it for the playoffs because the video surfaced and was "brought to their attention". Qwest field doesn't even sell the alcohol. That is contracted to an outside vendor (Levy Restaurants).

Wow man, are you dumb? Both cups hold 20 ounces. Medium is ADVERTISED as 16 ounces.

But you're saying they charged more for the large in the regular season. That's what I don't get. You're still trying to defend that, somehow. But whatever, I really don't care.

Not free ounces, the beers are overpriced, and they're hoping you'll be duped into wanting "more beer for your money". Every small sold is cool, but every large sold is a win for them, and a loss for the customer. If you were selling the beer, wouldn't you shake your head at anyone who bought the large when they could have gotten the same amount of beer just buying the small? And now that's it's out there they can come out and say "we're giving the customers more on the small by accident". These are specially designed cups, you think they're really gonna f**k something like this up on accident? It's not like they're using any ol cup that doesn't have their logo on each one

This thread simply contained a video of two drunk idiots pouring beer back and forth in cups. It contained no information. I thought the same thing at first, until I did a bit of research.

If you honestly think that a corporation purposely adjusted their medium sized cup to contain the same ounce amount as the large, than there is no purpose in this argument continuing forward. This mistake was simply in favor of the consumer. There was no intent behind the company for this.

And the vendor decided to charge the medium price during the playoffs for all 20 oz drinks due to the confusion. During the regular season, the price structure is exactly what we are debating right now....people purchasing medium paid $1.25 less but still got 20 ounces...4 ounces more than advertised.

I'd be shaking my head if the ounce size for the large was less than advertised. Mutha f**kas got what they paid for. Simple as that.

No, I'm just majoring in business, and I'm sure a lot of other people on boxden majored or have experience in the same field.

This cup size mistake in no shape or form helped the corporation, only the consumer. And I absolutely agree, beers at stadiums are overpriced.

I'm gonna sell you a beer (20 ounces), and charge you $8.25 for it. I got this small right here that's also 20 ounces, but I'll just tell you it's 16 ounces, and that one is $7.00. Which would you like, sir? The small for $7.00, or do you wanna give me the $1.25 extra for the same s**t?

What you continue to miss though is that you don't want 16 ounces, you want 20. So you pay the extra $1.25, but could have gotten it with the small. Checkmate.

You're still not saying much. Someone is still being ripped off. A consumer could then argue that they shouldn't have to pay more for their large beer than the guy paying for the medium. And if it's a genuine mistake, it should be fixed the proper way. Either change the cups or change the prices.

Oh, so you gave me what you advertised? 20 ounces at $8.25? And where did you get your term small from? They use medium and large.

Your argument is that consumers making the large purchase, could have saved the $1.25 by making the medium purchase.

What I'm saying is that this mistake was not predetermined to rip people off, a corporation would never rip off in a sense where they making a "ILLUSION MEDIUM CUP" to hold the same amount of ounces as a large. That is throwing money away. Literally.
