View Full Version : Confusing Pizza Hut promotion - buy a Big New Yorker Pizza, get $30 e-cash

I'm tired and lazy, otherwise I'd take the time to properly figure this one out. What it looks like, though don't quote me on this (no pun intended ;p) is that you buy this one-topping Big New Yorker Pizza from Pizza Hut and get $30 in coupons to use online. However, you can only use them at what looks like 7 retailers, and you can only use $10 or less of the $30 per purchase (or per store, I dunno). So, essentially it seems that you pay $9.99 for this pizza, then get three $10 coupons for use at a small selection of stores. If anyone else wants to take a look at this and correct me if I'm wrong, I'd be grateful http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif I'm going to bed.

Good pizza - just had some tonight - but there is the fine print. You choose three of the stores and use $10 at each. You can still use Flooz if you have any to pay the rest of the order, like I did at ToysRUS.com to pay for shipping. However, don't count on using other coupons to get a bigger discount - at least at Fogdog - where it serves as your coupon so you can't use more coupons for a bigger discount. You can't stack the $10 discounts, but you're allowed to do this 10 separate times.

You're a riot, qeg84doa. I'm literally rolling on the floor with laughter, though I'm mysteriously still able to type.

I picked up a New Yorker Pizza today and just checked out the promo. You can use $10 at each of three places of your chosing. I picked 800.com, toys R us and JCPenny. Then I searched 800.com for videos and found a Bear in the Big Blue House video for my daughter for $10.45 - $10 = $0.45 + 3.95 S/H = $4.40. Not a bad deal.
Then I went to Toys R Us and searched the video games and found a few Playstation games that were interesting... I got Test Drive 6 for 14.98 - $10 = 4.98 + S/H of around $4 = 8.98. This is going for $15-20 on Ebay and its headed for the auction block... what the heck its a few bucks... oh and I used a $10 flooz for the balance.
Then I went to JCPenny and got my wife something she wanted for $14 - $10 = $4 + $4.25 S/H = 8.25. Not a bad little deal either.
Each vendor has their own rules and some of them don't explicitly state that the $10 cannot cover shipping (800.com is the only one that DOES prohibit shipping explicitly), so you may be able to get a cheap Gameboy game for free w/ free shipping or something like that. In the end the Pizza was good and that was justification enough for me.

Yeah Ben, you got it right. I werk at pizza hut and was kinda pissed off when I figured it out.

Did anyone else notice that:
1) Toys 'r Us GCs are only redeemable for Software and video games
2) The Petopia GC is only valid at an extremely scaled down version of the Petopia.com site
This wasn't made very clear in the promotional materials. So, I emailed giftcertificates.com telling them that I was upset about it, and I want them to replace them with other GCs.
I'll let you know what I find out.
