Free pizza from Domino's for Lovemoney readers

What better way to get through the month than with a free lunch.

Free pizza from Domino's for Lovemoney readers

January is nearly over and payday is almost here so to celebrate getting through such a dreary and depressing month, we’re rewarding readers with a free lunch.

It’s been weeks since our December pay day and after making it through Blue Monday, we think a freebie is in order.

So thanks to our friends at TopCashback, we’ve managed to exclusively secure you the first chance to grab a free £15.99 pizza from Dominos.

The deal

You can get your hands on a large-sized Domino’s pizza and there are four flavours to choose from; Veg-a-Roma, Texas BBQ, Tandoori Hot or Chicken Feast.

But before you start clearing away your packed lunch, there are a few steps to complete before you can enjoy your free pizza.

First, the deal is only available to members of the cashback site, so you need to visit TopCashback and become a member by registering your email address for free.

Next, log onto the website and visit the special "Domino’s Pizza" page where you’ll find a 50% discount code which sends the price of your £15.99 pizza down to £7.99.

Once you have the code you can click through to the Domino’s website, and pick the pizza you want along with your chosen delivery time. This can be any time that suits you during opening hours – so not just lunch time.

This is the slight catch in the deal. As it’s a cashback website, the pizza isn’t immediately free, but within 48 hours of receiving the pizza, Topcashback will credit your account – making the meal a freebie.

On the checkout page, enter the 50% code which will bring the cost of the pizza down to £7.99. This deal was originally set at £7.99 for cashback, but after the discovery that Domino's has a minimum spend of £9.99 for free delivery, TopCashback upped the cashback level to £9.99 and any members who ordered their pizza before this changed will get the full £9.99 credited to their account.

Because of this change you now need to make sure you're spending this amount to avoid paying any extra. The best way to do this is by adding on a smaller item, such as some of the pizza dips to top it up. If you're going for this option you'll still get your money back and TopCashback will credit your account with £9.99.

TopCashback tells us there are thousands of pizzas on offer, and although it wouldn’t specify an exact amount, it expects the deal to last until Tuesday which is sign that there are quite a few to go around.

Terms and conditions

The main terms and conditions of the deal are that it’s available “while stocks last”, you can’t use it with any other offer and it’s only available at participating UK branches. Where you live in the country could also affect the price you pay, with those in London looking at slightly higher prices, so check this before you confirm your payment.

One free pizza is allowed for each Topcashback member, so if you get your whole team at work to sign up, you could be in for an office full of free pizzas, and the full terms and conditions can be found on the website.

Is it worth it?

Cashback websites work by giving you a discount on any items bought through a tracked link on the site. This means the cashback isn’t instant and generally takes around one month to come back to you.

They won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but if used effectively you can save hundreds off the cost of your normal shopping.

However, this deal is different because you’ll get the money back in 48 hours so you’re not out of pocket for very long. You’re also getting a large pizza effectively for free just for registering on the website.

As you now have to make a minimum spend of £9.99 it means you're not just getting the pizza but something else as well - but because the cashback offer will be £9.99 you're still not having to pay for the stuff you order (up to this amount).

It’s a great deal as it requires minimum effort and the timing is perfect because many of us still have three days until pay day.

    £15.99 for a pizza. No thank you. I would not want it even if it was really completely free.

    I wish Lovemoney would check their facts! It is most annoying to waste my time only to find that the offer is not as it appears.

    I went to order the large chicken feast. First of all, the 50% offer is only for orders over £15 and the chicken feast is £14.99. You have to add at least £1.99 on for a Coke to push it above £15. So with 50% off the pizza only and the £7.99 cashback the FREE pizza is now £1.50. Still a very good deal but clearly NOT AS DESCRIBED.

    BUT it does not stop there. If you want delivery with any of the LM suggested pizzas then you will find that the minimum order is £10 (after the 50% discount) so you need to add over £2 on to your order to push the price up (in my case over £2.50 due to cheaper pizza). So again with 50% off the pizza only and the £7.99 cashback the FREE pizza is now over £2. Still a very good deal but clearly NOT AS DESCRIBED.

    And just to top it off... the website errors when payment is taken with Paypal. Not LM's fault but just completes the experience nicely. Now all I need is to find out that the 2 day cashback payment promise is not true!

    "It’s a great deal as it requires minimum effort ".. hmm - I don't think so!

    Please stop publishing things that you have not verified - this appears in a large proportion of the articles and your customers should not be proof reading and verifying facts for you. Not so bad when it is pizza (though still no excuse) but the consequences can be much worse when you give out financial advice.

    Hi werwerwer,

    Yes, unfortunately Top Cashback made a mistake with the original offer, which we didn't spot (in our defence, we didn't see the page on their site until this morning). However, they have moved to rectify this and, as we have noted in the article, the cashback offer is now £9.99, which should cover a pizza and a side in many cases. The higher cashback will apply to any customer ordering today, regardless of whether you ordered before it was changed.

    We apologise for this initial error, but hope this has made it right.

    As for your comment that we publish unverified facts in "a large proportion of the articles", this simply isn't the case. Our journalists spend a lot of time checking their facts and getting expert verification wherever necessary. But I should also reiterate that, in common with all sites of our ilk, we do not offer regulated financial advice (I'm referring to bigger things than a pizza offer) and our articles should not be taken as such.

    Apologies again for the Domino's error.

    Best wishes

    Simon

    I wish Lovemoney (and most other sites) would think of all their readers that live out in the sticks, or small towns that are not blessed by such myriad chain eateries as London etc. I would really have loved a Domino's pizza, I think, although I've never seen a branch so don't know. I think my nearest is in a town over 30 miles away. I'm sure they wouldn't deliver and, if they did, it would be stone cold by the time it arrived. If I drove up to get it, I could probably buy 3 full-price pizzas for the petrol money. I suppose I could use my pensioners' bus pass but that would be a 3 hour round trip. Hardly worth it for a pizza. If you really want to reward your readers, how about something that is accessible to all?

    @Simon Ward:

    I would like to know if anyone has sucessfully purchased a pizza on this offer - with either £7.99 or £9.99 cashback? My order has tracked at 42p cashback (yes 42p!!!) which looks like the other 4.04% offer that Topcashback/Dominos are also running - and it states that it can take up to 90 days to pay!

    It is starting to look to me as if you have to spend over £15 AFTER the 50% discount is taken off to get the cashback (i.e. over £30 full order value). Did you confirm this with Topcashback/Dominos as it is not clear?

    I am not at all happy and would not have considered the pizza had it not been for LMs recommendation!

    Yes, I have £9.99 sitting pending in my Top Cashback account this morning (and before any collusion theories start, there's no way Top Cashback could have traced this back to my being a lovemoney staff member).

    werwerwer, we're investigating with Top Cashback and we'll be in touch via email. And, no, you did not have to spend over £15 after the discount, it was £9.99 or more.

    I too am in the same situation as werwerwer but with £0.41 having spent a total (after 50% discount) of £10.37 but with four weeks until payout.

    If anyone else thinks their cashback is tracking incorrectly, despite using the correct link from Top Cashback, please email support@love.zendesk.com and we'll endeavour to remedy the situation.

    Best wishes

    Hi Lovemoney. Tried this yesterday with family and it worked well 2 out of 3 did!

    Unfortunately my sister tried and currently she is having the same problem. Although I think it might be because she used an ipad (mobile device). I never really use any mobile devices for any tracking as it can break the links quite easily.
