Thanks, I was wondering how this went.

@w00tgurl: Yes. I'm pretty sure they closed the "deal" a couple days prior to the Super Bowl. Sorry :(

@w00tgurl: Yea, you had to be a member by 6 today :/

I was actually gonna ask a question about this but figured somebody else probably already did, then got distracted :)

Did PJ say what size the pizza would be? Because back in the day when we used to get "free pizzas" from school and stuff, they were like 6" wide heh

@drchops: Large 1 topping and a 2 liter of Pepsi Max.

vote-for13vote-against

@drchops: These are large one topping pizzas. Also includes a free 2 liter bottle of Pepsi Max.

I have been lucky and also won one of the large one topping pizzas in the 46 second Papa John's contest. Yay!!

Once again, thanks to @matthalbig for posting that deal.

The most exciting part of the game was the coin flip

I would have joined but there isn't a Papa John's around here to get the pizza from. Cool for all of you who do live near one though :)

vote-for5vote-against

I forgot about that but I did sign up for it. I love free pizza. I even love pizza when I pay for it:)

vote-for3vote-against

I would love to see how much money they loss from this promotion lol

vote-for3vote-against

I'm not a fan of PJ pizza, not even when it's free, but if you like it, this was a great deal to get in on.

@darkinc: I was thinking the same thing, I wonder if this will hurt them in any way.

vote-for3vote-against

does anyone know when they will email the coupons?

vote-for6vote-against

@segafanalways: they said the emails would come out tomorrow. Now I just gotta pay for delivery, which runs $3.29 here now.

vote-for3vote-against

Hooray for free pizza! Keep the Pepsi Max, PJ. That stuff is nasty.

vote-for3vote-against

@samstag: I'll ask if they can substitute a Diet Pepsi; yes, I'm a diet soda connoisseur. I'd prefer Diet Dr Pepper, but we all know that's not gonna happen.

vote-for5vote-against

@darkinc: You gotta figure, there're some variables in place that'll save them money right off the bat; first and foremost, probably only a handful of the people that registered will actually collect.

Plus, the advertising from it - especially word of mouth. Did they have a Papa Johns commercial actually on during the Superbowl? I'm pretty sure they didn't - so think of it this way Superbowl commercial is what $3+mil?

As long as they don't hit $3,000,000 in Pizzas, they actually saved money in ads :) (assuming I'm right about them not paying for a Superbowl spot..)

vote-for3vote-against

@drchops: yup. i saw several Pizza Hut commercials especially during the pregame shows. one commercial had some big name stars, i forget who now. but i don't remember a Papa John's commercial today. so pizza hut paid a few million, while papa john's is giving away a bunch of pizzas (to registered rewards members)

i don't have a calculator but whoever figures which pizza company came out on top, wins a cookie

vote-for2vote-against

@drchops: Consider how many people signed up multi times with multi address just to cheat them out. figure they sell a pizza for $10, every 100k ppl that collect its 1m$ in money they missed out on.

vote-for3vote-against

I don't particularly like Papa Johns but I am a rewards member because they are one of the few places that deliver late into the night (I work third shift). Me and all of my 6 coworkers are rewards members so I am going to be really sick of Papa Johns in no time.

vote-for2vote-against

@darkinc: Multiple addresses? lol wait.. wouldn't you have to GO TO each corresponding address in order to get the pizza? I'd think they would have some kind of basic protection against doubling up.

I haven't actually tried it, but I'm thinking that probably not too many people are going to go THAT far out of the way to save a couple bucks on a pizza :)

I seriously can picture somebody spending $6 bucks in gas and waiting 45 minutes in front of some abandoned house to score a "free" pizza though lol

vote-for2vote-against

@drchops: Signing up with multi addresses not necessarily going to different pizza places lol and really I can assure you that a lot most likely have... every time places have something for free from coupons to anything there are always people who spam the sign ups and enter just for free stuff...

Its 12$ worth of stuff not just a few dollars :)

vote-for2vote-against

they also bank on people not just ordering the 1 pizza and diet soda,also the cost to make a large pizza cant be that high even in this day , they used this deal to get new customers mostly and like others said saved 3.5 million in ads to help do so

vote-for3vote-against

@nageltr: yikes! Where are you located? They raised the delivery fee from $1.50 to $2.00 about 6 months ago here in NE Ohio and I thought that was bad!

vote-for2vote-against

Pepsi is on the hook for the 2-litres since they are trying to promote PepsiMax. So at least Papa J only has to pay for the pizzas. I wonder if he ran to the bathroom to throw up after seeing the coin toss. Do you think he enjoyed the game?

vote-for2vote-against

They may not have advertised during the Super Bowl but they were 1 of 5 co-sponsors of that Chevy game time app and got plenty of business and advertising through that alone.

vote-for2vote-against

I already have 50 PJ points saved up so that's three free pizzas for me! I'm getting so burned out on pizza though. Oh well, free pizza is free pizza.

vote-for3vote-against

@drchops: Further, I would tend to think that a lot of the people who take advantage won't get only the pizza and the 2l. And of course, it doesn't cost them $10 to make and deliver a pizza.

I am a paparewards member but I didnt hear about this? What was the orginal promo ?

vote-for2vote-against

It would not surprise me if Papa John's had this promotion insured. Typically, when a company or advertiser offers some big giveaway that may or may not result in a large payout, they insure the promotion to mitigate against losses.

vote-for2vote-against

@chipgreen: Suburban Portland, OR I have no idea why it is so high. Someone here posted a deal for Shoprunner for a year for a dollar. Now I get free delivery from Domino's. Not my favorite but now it is about 20% cheaper than Papa John's just from the delivery fee. I guess as long as people pay it, they will keep jacking it up.
