I received a mailed coupon from these jokers advising me they would deliver one free medium pizza, with one topping, at no cost to me. Emphasis on NO COST. One Saturday afternoon, my kid was whining for food and I told him he could have the coupon and order his pizza. They informed me there would be a delivery charge of $1.64. I told them this was not stated on the coupon, that it was absolutely free. They didn't care. So I sent my kid to the car to get the sticky and dirty change from under the ashtray to make the precious $1.64. I understand they're hoping you will take them up on the offer and order your free pizza ALONG WITH another $30 worth of food. Tough. All I was taking from them was what was free, mainly because if I want Pizza, I order real Pizza from Papa John's or a local pizza shop.
Sometimes the kid and his friends will order from Domino's and I know that when you place a normal order from them there is no delivery fee (there's no tip either from me, ever). The driver knew the pay risks of the job when (s)he took it. That driver does nothing above and beyond what any other driver does to warrant a tip.
This delivery fee came up simply because they were mad that I took them up on the offer for a free pizza without ordering more of their crap. So the pizza came and I made my kid go to the door. When the door opened, I heard my kid drop the change all over my hardwood floor. He took the pizza, placed it on the table and started picking up the change, handing it to her as he went. I was about to die laughing and was afraid she would hear me. She finally said that was okay and she left.
I went to pick up the change from the floor she didn't wait on, and it amounted to $.96. I'm glad he mostly went after the pennies and nickels first, all she got to walk out with was $.68. I couldn't have planned that one better myself.
I guess that $1.64 wasn't worth it to her if she had to jump through a hoop to get it. She would've got the rest of it if she would've waited, it's not his fault he couldn't hold a big handful of change and open a doorknob and a couple of deadbolts (teenagers are clumsy).
They ripped me off big time. They should've said carryout only or some such other nonsense on that coupon if they were worried about a delivery charge. Or minimum order required. They had their chance to get out of bringing an absolutely free pizza to me, but I guess that coupon would've wound up in the trash with the rest of them if they could've resisted promising me something for free.
