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.
