Whether or not you’re a football fan, you could be in for some freebies this season when your local team scores.

Lots of vendors celebrate football victories, touchdowns and sacks by giving you great deals. Money rounded up a full list, and here are some of the highlights.

Papa John’s

Papa John’s widespread campaign brings you cheap pizza the Monday after your team wins.

Look up your location to see if your team qualifies and the specific promotion being offered, generally 50% off your order. The following teams have confirmed coupon codes:

Baltimore: RAVENS50

Atlanta: FALCONS50

Carolina: PANTHERS20

Cincinnati: BENGALS50

Cleveland: BROWNS50

Chicago: BEARS

Dallas: COWBOYS20

Denver: BRONCOS

Houston: TEXANS

Indianapolis: COLTS50

Minnesota: VIKES50

St. Louis: RAMS50

Seattle: HAWKSWIN

Most of the promo codes include the team name in caps followed by “50,” but there are some variations. And Carolina and Dallas fans are in luck — their teams don’t even have to win, just score 20 points, to activate 50% off coupons!

Jack in the Box

Jack in the Box has a number of deals for West Coast football fans.

San Diego Chargers fans can cheer even harder when their team scores two touchdowns in a game — the following day, they’re eligible for a free Jumbo Jack burger with a large drink purchase.

Californians further up the coast, however, should root for the 49ers, who get the same deal when the opposing team turns the ball over to San Franciscosay the phrase “Jumbo Jack Takeaway” when you order.

In Seattle, Seahawks fans get free Jumbo Jacks with the purchase of a large drink when their team sacks the opposing quarterback three or more times. Just mention the “Seahawks Three Sacks” promotion.

Dunkin Donuts

Back east, fans might not get free beef — but they can get a free buzz from Dunkin Donuts if they download the company’s mobile app.

If you’re rooting for the Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots or Philadelphia Eagles, you can look forward to a free hot or iced medium coffee the day after the game.

There’s no free lunch in New York, though — a post-Jets victory java will still cost you a quarter.

What Else Can Your Team Win You?

Atlanta fans can enjoy $40 in instant savings from Kauffman Tire for each quarter the Falcons score. That’s $160 off any set of four tires if they score once each quarter!

If you attend the Seattle Seahawks game and the defense causes three or more turnovers, bring your ticket stub to Great Cuts for a free haircut the following week. Check out these other unique Seahawks deals — you’re sure to be in for something awesome.

Finally, Cleveland Browns fans could earn a $100 gift card for Giant Eagle supermarket if they win the tailgate photo contest. Share your photo with the hashtag #GiantEagleTailgate to enter.
