    shake for under three dollars,

    Hi
    Here, does 'shake for' mean 'cost'? It only costs 3 dollars?
    Thanks.

    At my preferred American drive-thru, In-and-Out, you can get your burger, fries and shake for under three dollars, in three minutes, at three o'clock in the morning. Delicious.

    Together they cost less than $3.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Oh my goodness. I got it now. It is 'shake', like 'milkshake'. I thought what could it mean 'to shake for something'

    Thanks a lot.
