[ Currently Eating: Leftover Mongolian Noodles ]
I must get Pizza Hut Coupons in the mail nearly every single day. In college, I used to think what a great service this was, bringing me deals on pizza right to my door. If you wanted to order pizza for takeout, you just checked your mail.
In truth, the price of pizza has risen like crazy. And at the same time the SIZE of pizza has shrunk like crazy. And never mind those boring commercials that tout a $5 price for each pizza after the first one from Domino’s Pizza. It’s all about buying in bulk nowadays and screwing customers over with redundant sides (breadsticks? Why would I want extra bread when I can just tear off the crust and eat it!)
Cheap Eats is possible with pizza, but I would say the bottom line is to not order it if you’re eating it by yourself. If you’ve got a room full of 20 people for the Super Bowl then by all means get with the multiple pizzas and use those mailer coupons. The Pizza Hut coupon I’m currently looking at states “$8.99 for a 3 topping Medium Pizza or Specialty Pizza and then a second of equal or less value for $6.” That’s ok… just barely. I would go for large one topping pizzas wherever possible and use coupons that don’t involve any junk like “Quepapas” ($3.99 for 15 Bite sized potato “munchers” filled with cheese. Ripoff.), Breadsticks, Cheesesticks, Hot Wings, or god forbid – drinks. Add-on drinks are the ultimate bane of Cheap Eats.
Whatever you do, don’t NOT use those damn coupons. The prices of those pizzas already have the coupon discounts built into them, so if you don’t use a coupon you’re overpaying. Interestingly, I just found out you can apparently print out quite a few of those same Pizza Hut Coupons online.
