Pi Day Deals You Don’t Have to be a Math Nerd to Enjoy
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 tasty bargain would be simpler. Luckily, a slew of national pizza and pie chains are offering deals and discounts for National Pi Day, which is held annually on March 14 — 3/14. Hey, that’s Tuesday!
You don’t need to be a math nerd to grab these deals, but don’t dawdle. Unless otherwise specified, these discounts are good only on Tuesday.
Pi Day Deals on Pizza
Unsurprisingly, pizza joints are really into Pi Day.
OK, so our first one isn’t actually a pizza place. But members of the convenience store’s 7Rewards loyalty program can buy any whole pizza for $3.14, including cheese, pepperoni or meat pizza. You can also get the deal a day earlier on the 7NOW delivery app.
Since 7-Eleven owns Speedway, you can get the same deal there if you’re a Speedy Rewards member.
At this chain’s 300 locations, Blaze Rewards members can get any 11-inch pizza for $3.14, with your choice of toppings — but not including crust upgrades. To get the necessary coupon, you’ll need to download the Blaze Pizza app first.
(In Canada, the offer is a buy one, get one free deal for $3.14 in Canadian dollars.)
BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse
It has a dine-in deal where you can get a mini pizza with one topping for $3.14.
Cicis Pizza Buffet
You don’t need a special coupon, and you don’t have to be some kind of “Cicis Rewards” member or anything like that.
On Tuesday, you can get $3.14 off the Cicis adult buffet and/or a kid’s combo for $3.14.
If you’re ordering online for pickup or delivery, you can get $3.14 off a large one-topping pizza by using the code “PIDAY” at checkout.
Last year, Hungry Howie’s had a deal where you could get a medium one-topping pizza for $3.14 if you bought an order of the Howie Bread.
This year? We don’t know. No one there would return our messages. Not that we’re annoyed or anything.
If you’re hankering for Hungry Howie’s, it’s worth checking their Facebook page on Tuesday to see if they’ve posted any Pi Day deals.
A free app called Upside can help you save money on gas and restaurants with cashback offers.
Little Caesars tells The Penny Hoarder that it’s offering a large cheese pizza for $3.14. The only catch is that it’s only available as part of Little Caesars’ partnership with T-Mobile, so customers must have the T-Mobile Tuesdays app.
At this fast-growing franchise with more than 1,000 locations, if you order any large or extra-large pizza, you can get a medium pizza with one topping for $3.14.
The offer is valid only if you order online or via the app.
The Pi Day deal is for Papa Rewards members, although it’s OK if you join at the last minute.
If customers buy a large one-topping pizza, they can get a second pizza for $3.14.

Starting on Pi Day, Pizza Hut will roll out NCAA March Madness-themed packaging for a pizza called the Big New Yorker, which is on sale for $13.99. The pizza box turns into a basketball hoop — perfect for playing with the mini basketballs that Pizza Hut will be selling for $7 for a limited time starting on Pi Day.
Round Table Pizza
This California-based chain with more than 400 locations is offering personal-sized cheese pizzas for $3.14. You have to be a Round Table Pizza Royal Rewards member to get the discount.
There are Pi Day deals at the mall, too. Just look in the food court.
If you join the Sbarro Slice Society, you’ll get a free New York XL slice with the purchase of a beverage.
Like 7-Eleven, this isn’t strictly a pizza place. But it has pizzas! If you’re a Schlotzsky’s Rewards member — and who isn’t? — you can get a buy one, get one free pizza deal whether you’re ordering online or in person at a Schlotzky’s deli.
Slice typically posts an offer on its Facebook page on Pi Day. Last year it was a coupon code that got you $7 off a pizza. (Slice is really into Pi Day and has even posted a pizza math problem on its blog. It uses pi to calculate whether a large pizza or two medium pizzas is more food.)
Your Pie Pizza
Unlike the others, this Georgia-based 70-restaurant chain is stretching out its Pi Day holiday beyond a single day. Members of the Your Pie Rewards loyalty program can get $3.14 off a 10-inch pizza from Tuesday to Thursday.
One pizza per customer per order. Redeem the offer online or in-store using the rewards app.
Pi Day Deals That Don’t Involve Pizza
Pizza places can’t have all the fun on Pi Day. Other places like to get in on the act — mostly pie places, but other places, too.
Boston Market told The Penny Hoarder that, for $3.14, customers can get a quarter of a chicken with mashed potatoes and cornbread on Tuesday.
This high-end grocery chain typically has in-store deals on Pi Day, like $3.14 off frozen chicken pot pies and also 9-inch pies from the bakery.
(Whole Foods does not have a Pi Day deal this year, just FYI.)
You just knew Perkins would have a pie deal for Pi Day. Fans of baked goods can snag a free slice of pie on Tuesday by signing up for the Perkins eClub.
You don’t have to “flake out” over which flavor to choose — get it? (Yes, it’s a really bad joke.) They mean any flavor of pie — chocolate French silk, lemon meringue, banana cream, caramel apple, whichever one tickles your taste buds.
Just like pi, the bargains and deals are never-ending here at The Penny Hoarder.
Never-ending? Pi? Get it?
Sorry, we couldn’t resist.
