Pi Day is March 14 — and the Deals, Like the Number, are Never-Ending

Remember math class? Everyone knows what pi is, right?

It’s the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, expressed as the number 3.14. The long version is 3.14159265358979323846264 et cetera to infinity.

What could be simpler than that?

Well, a good bargain would be simpler. Luckily, a slew of national chains are offering deals and discounts for National Pi Day, held annually on March 14 (3/14).

Like we always say, there’s nothing like a mathematical constant with a trillion digits to bring out those sweet, sweet deals! You don’t even need to be a math nerd to take part in these.
