Since the advent of the smartphone revolution, the world has changed at a drastic pace, and the restaurant industry is no exception. Many restaurant chains large and small have launched their own apps to make dining more convenient and offer rewards for their loyal customers. At EatDrinkDeals, we are committed to helping our users find the best restaurant apps to save money, no matter where the deals may be found. Therefore, we are starting a new series of reviews of restaurant apps. Today we review the app for “The Hut” – Pizza Hut, that is.
Here’s our story on all the Pizza Hut coupons and specials you need to know about to save.
Convenience and Reliability
If you don’t have one already from ordering online previously, you need to create a Hut Rewards account. All you need is an email address. Payments can be set up with a credit card or gift card. To get your pizza, click “Start An Order” at the top of the home screen. You’re given the option of carryout or delivery, and enter your address to find the nearest locations.
One nice thing about the Pizza Hut app is that you can order ahead, even if the restaurant isn’t open yet. You can schedule the pickup or delivery to the time that’s most convenient for you. You can place an order up to a week ahead of time, so if you want to plan ahead for your birthday party or the having people over for the big game at your house, Pizza Hut has got you covered. Pizza Hut remembers your previous orders, so if you have a standard go-to pizza creation, you don’t have to build it from scratch time after time.
Rewards and Savings
For every $1 spent, customers earned 2 Rewards points. 150 points will get you a Medium 2-topping pizza. For 200 points, you can get a medium pizza any way you want it. For 250 points, you can get a large pizza done your way. That means you can get a free pizza for every $75 – $100 you spend at Pizza Hut. There are some rumblings on the Internet about redeeming rewards and how you still need to meet a minimum fee (determined by the individual store) to get delivery. While there could be some improvements in how the fine print is communicated, overall this is a pretty good program.
Please tip your delivery driver even if you’re getting free pizza! We here at EatDrinkDeals.com of course encourage you to be a cheapskate when finding the best restaurant deals for your money, but you should always take care of the hard working folks who prepare and deliver your food.
Pizza Hut puts a lot of deals onto the app, and they vary by your location. You can find the best value by going to the “Deals” button at the lower part of the screen, enter your location, and see what’s available. Also you can get pretty good Pizza Hut coupons that will go to your email address, and you can enter them on checkout for more savings. However, some of the bigger promo codes like 50% off are only applicable towards the regular menu price.
Is Pizza Hut one of the best restaurant apps to save your money?
The Pizza Hut app is a worthy extension of the online ordering options they have offered for years. Did you know that the first online pizza order was from Pizza Hut way back in 1994? Rewards points are earned at a decent clip, you can quickly locate the best deals for your neighborhood Huts, and the process is usually smooth from ordering to payment.
