Comments Off on Papa Johns Super Bowl Free Pizza & Pizza Discount

Papa John’s is the Official Pizza Sponsor of Super Bowl XLVII, and they’ve come up with a super Super Bowl promotion for Papa John’s pizza lovers.  Get your crystal ball out and vote for which way you think the coin toss will land for the game on Sunday February 3, and everyone who calls it right gets a free large one-topping pizza.  Even if you don’t call it right, you receive a special offer.

To have a chance at the Papa John’s free pizza you have to vote at the link for heads or tails, and provide some contact information, through Saturday February 2, 2013.  Just for participating in the “Coin Toss Experience”  they’ll send a pizza offer with the email confirming your vote. According to the promo email I received, that thank you offer is 35% off any large pizza.

Then sit back and watch the Super Bowl. Voters who guess the coin toss right will be sent a promo code the day after Super Bowl Sunday (February 4 by midnight) for a free large one-topping pizza, to be redeemed at by March 10 2013.

Even the voters who don’t guess the coin toss correctly will receive a special pizza offer, according to the Papa John’s Coin Toss Experience promo FAQs, also on February 4 and valid for the same period.

Kinda can’t lose whichever way you think the coin will land!

Comments Off on Papa Johns Free Pizza & Pepsi Super Bowl Coin Toss

Papa John’s is the Official Pizza Sponsor of Super Bowl XLVI, and they’ve come up with a super Super Bowl promotion for Papa John’s pizza lovers. IF the coin toss for the game on Sunday February 5 lands on heads, everyone registered for Papa John’s online customer loyalty program, Papa Rewards, will get a free large one-topping pizza and a 2-liter Pepsi Max.

To have a chance at the Papa John’s free pizza and Pepsi Max, you have to enroll in the Papa Rewards program by 6 pm ET (that’s 4 pm Mountain Time) on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5.

Fingers crossed that the coin toss comes up heads! Even if it doesn’t, the Papa Rewards program gives you 1 point for every $5 you spend in an online order at, and once you reach 25 points, you get a free large pizza with up to three toppings.



Papa John’s $10 Pizza & Maybe A Free Super Bowl Pizza

Comments Off on Papa John’s $10 Pizza & Maybe A Free Super Bowl Pizza

Papa John’s is the Official Pizza Sponsor of the NFL and Super Bowl XLV, and they’ve come up with two Super Bowl promotions for Papa John’s fans.

First, they’re offering large pizzas for $10 for up to seven toppings or specialty pizzas. It’s a time-limited offer and although they don’t give an expiry date at their website, we believe this runs through Sunday February 6.

Second, everyone registered for Papa John’s online customer loyalty program, Papa Points, will get a FREE large pizza if Super Bowl XLV on Sunday February 6 goes into overtime. They’re saying it’ll be a free Papa John’s pizza for everyone in America, which sounds a bit ambitious to me, because not everyone will sign up – only those in the know!

To be eligible for a free pizza if Super Bowl XLV goes into overtime, register for at Papa John’s website for their online customer loyalty program, Papa Points, before 11:59 pm ET (that’s 9:59 pm Mountain Time) on Saturday, February 5, 2011.

Don’t get confused like I did and just sign up for the email newsletter. You need to register for the actual Papa Points rewards program at this link.

If the game goes into overtime, everyone signed up for the program will be awarded 25 Papa Points on Monday, February 7 – that’s enough points to score a large three-topping pizza. Customers will be able to redeem the 25 Papa Points for the free pizza through June 30, 2011.

If you’re already registered in the Rewards Program, you’ll be automatically entered for the free pizza points and don’t need to re-register.  The offer is for over-18s only.

Papa John’s Super Bowl website has more info and all the rules on both promotions, plus a rather amusing little referree running about.

Thanks to Teresa at Florida on the Cheap for the tip!

Buy any size Classic Italian, Turkey Ranch & Swiss, Mesquite Chicken, or Traditional sub — in any size — and get an identical (size and recipe) sub for $1. It’s called the Toasty Toasty promotion, and it’s good “for a limited time.” Quiznos has 22 stores throughout New Mexico, including 13 in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Los Lunas, and Bernalillo.
  • $2 milkshake: This deal’s simple enough: buy a burger (or a veggie burger), get a shake for $2. If that’s not great enough, it’s at Flying Star. ‘Nuff said. Here’s a coupon for the Bernalillo location, or print this coupon good at any location. Nine locations, including one in Santa Fe, to serve you.

  • Free appetizer or $5 off: Invite friends to party at T.G.I. Friday’s and score a free Jack Daniels® Sampler Platter appetizer! You do have to fork over your e-mail address and that of your friend(s), and there’s no privacy policy explanation on the party site, so proceed at your own risk. On the plus side, you can schedule parties as often as you like and get a free appetizer each time! Or, if you’re more of a privacy freak, you can simply print this coupon for $5 off each additional entrée for every friend you bring to dine with you. The coupon’s good for up to 10 people (!), so party on, dudes. Valid at participating locations through 8/31/09. These offers are not combinable, wise guy. There’s just one T.G.I. Friday’s location in Albuquerque, and it’s over by Cottonwood Mall.

Well, that’s it for this week. Have a great weekend!
