Mellow Mushroom Wants to Give You a Free Cheese Pizza Just for Doing This

Here’s a deal that combines two of our very favorite things in the world: free pizza and three-point shots on the basketball court.

Did we mention the part about free pizza?

Mellow Mushroom is giving away a free small cheese pizza to anyone who downloads a new gaming app.

The chain typically cuts its 10-inch small pizza into four slices, and it typically retails for $7.99.

The app is the ACC 3 Point Challenge, which you can download here. It’s available for free through the Apple and Google Play app stores.

In the online game, players compete in basketball shooting contests. Fans can play as their favorite Atlantic Coast Conference school and take their best shots in three-point shootout-style competitions. Users can play quick matches or try to survive and advance through online tournaments.

Fans who download or update the app will receive an electronic code for the free pizza, redeemable at any Mellow Mushroom location. The growing chain has 180 stores in 21 states.

Mellow Mushroom, which was founded in Atlanta, is a sponsor of ACC sports broadcasts.

The athletic conference has 15 universities, and the app expects you to pick one and represent: “Think you can make it rain from beyond the arc, with the clock ticking and the game on the line? Choose your favorite ACC school and compete as their top marksman, or take some practice shots on our playground court.”

When you go to claim your free cheese pizza, be aware of the terms of the deal: It’s dine-in only and limited to one redemption per party.

Fair warning: You will be definitely be tempted to grab something to go with that pizza. Aside from its pizzas and hoagies, the chain is known for its vast beer selection.

Your Turn: Which do you like more — three-point shots or pizza?
