But why? WHY is it so cheap to get unlimited refills? It literally costs the restaurant pennies to buy the syrup and they make a huge profit on the drinks so they can effectively afford to let the customers pay a one time fee and let them refill as many times as they like.

Are free refills a good or a bad thing??
