Lovin' It Ookii Jikan

If there's two things that I like best about Japan, it's McDonald's and their coupons. You've heard me rave the burgers, fries, and Cokes before, but it gets even better with a bit of technology added to the mix. They've started rolling out a new electronic coupon system that works with your cell phone. You pick the coupon you want on your screen, hold the phone over the scanner, and the cashier bows and politely says "Yokudekimashita!" You feel like a winner every time you order something - how's that for service?
