Costco’s $1.50 Hot Dog and Cola Deal Has Been Fighting Inflation for a Quarter Century

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Back in the day, back in 1985, Costco used to sell you a hot dog and a can of cola for $1.50.

These days, it’s the same deal, excepting that the dog is bigger and better and you get more soda and you get free refills.

See?

The price for this combo deal might go up at some point, but current CEO Jim Sinegal says he’ll be dead before that happens.

Excelsior, ever upward!
