Pizza Hut found a very unique way to get people to buy pies in Japan over the holidays.
Instead of inventing some sort of bizarre pizza or offering outrageous portions for one ridiculously low price, the restaurant decided to put together a unique promotion to celebrate its golden crust pizza. For a limited time, customers have a chance to win a gold necklace shaped like a slice of pizza. We’re not kidding.
Although Pizza Hut could have easily skimped on the goods, Softpedia reports that each prize is worth an estimated $770. In other words, the company didn’t take a trip to the local dollar store and pick up a collection of chains for under two bucks.
Early next year, Pizza Hut will select eight lucky customers at random to receive the aforementioned gold necklace. If all of these folks were to assemble for a pizza party, their prizes would form one very expensive fake pizza. However, the chances of this actually happening are admittedly slim.
Of course, there’s a slight catch to this contest. According to Rocket News 24, hungry patrons will have to pony up a significant chunk of change to qualify for the promotion. Not only will people have to sign up for Pizza Hut Online, they’re also required to spend at least $43 on an order. A small price to pay for one-of-a-kind trinket shaped like a slice of pizza.
Pizza Hut kicked off the promotion to get sell more pies over the holidays. Since most people are busy preparing homemade meals for their friends and family, the pizza business tends to sag towards the end of the year. The company is hoping this will turn things around.
Of course, this isn’t the only holiday-related promotion the boys and girls at Pizza Hut cooked up this month. The Inquisitr previously reported that the restaurant is offering up a so-called Double Decker Pizza to folks living in Singapore.
Instead of getting one pie for your hard-earned money, the company is tossing a smaller and much thinner pizza on top of the other. As strange as that may sound to some folks, the concoction isn’t altogether revolting.
We reported, “The Double Decker Pizza features a stuffed-crusted pizza covered with tasty chicken pepperoni as well as several red and green peppers. To top it off, Pizza Hut adds a second tortilla-style layer topped with zucchini, tomatoes, and turkey ham.”
Unfortunately, none of these clever Pizza Hut promotions are available to folks living in the United States. What do you think about the restaurant giving away expensive gold necklaces during its holiday promotion in Japan?
