New Pricing Model

Here's an interesting new pricing model...a sushi restaurant in New York where children's prices are determined by height.

File this one next to the March 2006 pricing model adopted by Ostfriesland Hotel in Norden, Germany, who adopted a weight-based pricing model of €0.50 per kg, per night.

A bundling story...from an avid reader of this blog

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the "seniors' special" was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

"Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."

"Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.

"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" my wife asked incredulously.


"I'll take the special."

"How do you want your eggs?"

"Raw and in the shell," my wife replied.

She took the two eggs home.
