Deals Worth Waiting For: ($6) Six Dollar Large Two Topping Pizza Week at Dominos
Dominos Pizza 2.0
A handful of years ago, Dominos rebooted their pizza recipes - they redid the dough, perked up the tomato sauce, improved the elasticity of the pizza cheese, and made it part of a brand new Dominos 2.0 branding push. It was wildly successful and, in sharp contrast to Pizza Hut, has allowed Dominos to thrive in the new pizza landscape with Papa John's.
For my money, I've come to really enjoy Dominos pies because they're consistently very good. Whereas Pizza Hut special pizzas like the Cheesy Bites Pizza and Bacon Cheese Stuffed Crust were subpar in their execution, I have not found a new Dominos pizza that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed. Their thin crust is actually pretty thin and crunchy, unlike what you'll get at Pizza Hut or Little Caesar's. The pan pizza is a revelation and is as good as any other mass-produced pizza out there with its overflowing cheese and perfectly pan-friend dough. And the hand-tossed pizza is decent as well.
So while all pizza deals catch my ear, when it's something special offered from Dominos, I make sure to participate. And that means that next week will be filled with large two topping pizzas in my household.
Dominos Pizza Deal
To be fair, the latest round of pizza wars have brought pizza prices down to the lowest levels in recent history. Local pizza shops that made subpar pies have been under a barrage of different deals from the national players, and we've seen large pizzas go from being $10-12 to a permanent home in the $8-10 range. On top of that, you can usually get medium pizzas for $6-7 and multi-pizza deals so it's hard to go wrong when buying pizza in general.
Take Domino's for example and their $5.99 everyday deals. Normally you can Choose Any 2 or More for $5.99 each from a menu of the following:
- Medium 2 topping pizzas (Handmade or thin crust)
- Specialty chicken
- 8 piece chicken wings or boneless wings
- Stuffed cheesy breads
- Pastas (small size)
- Oven baked sandwiches
That deal, in itself is good.
Now take, the deal that is worth waiting for:
- Starting Monday, 9/29, large two topping pizzas at Dominos are available for $5.99. The deal is only for carryout orders and will last for one week.
So you're basically able to feed 3-4 for $5.99 starting next week. Heck, you can feed 6-8 for $12 or think big and feed 15-20 for only $30! It's a stellar deal for a very good pizza pie.

National Pizza Month is Coming
A quick word on National Pizza Month which is October. It's coming! I can't believe it's already here and that I'll be able to eat even more delicious, cheap pizza from my favorite brands. Any time you have a whole month to celebrate something so wonderful as pizza, you should fully embrace with arms wide open and eat so much pizza that you decide to take the next month off.
After all, November is turkey month, so you might as well stock up on pizza next month. Stay tuned for more deals from Papa John's, Papa Murphy's, Pizza Hut et al as I'm sure they are on the way.

Who/What is DealForALiving?
I believe that being frugal and making smart money choices is like any other exercise. As we continue to practice good habits in saving money where possible, finding deals for what we want, and having a good time at it, then we become better at dealing for a living.
I'm committed to sharing my experiences with getting the most out of using credit cards, saving and spending tips, and I might even add a slice of perspective without trying to be a psychoanalyst like some other personal finance folks out there.
Please let me know what you think and if you'd like to hear my take on a specific topic.
PS. I've also started writing on my own site: dealforaliving.com.
What is a Deal Worth Waiting For?
One of the ideas that lead to the birth of DealsForALiving is that navigating deals and maximizing resources makes life easier and more joyful. It spans everything that I'm passionate about in food, technology, news and media consumption, the workday and my work, and in relationships. The more I can share these things, then the more I get to see and hear people benefiting from these deals, and these snippets of wisdom (that's how I see it).
Closest to my heart are national and international deals that are offered by big brands, because they are there for the taking by thousands, even millions, of people. What comes to mind are Labor Day sales on furniture, annual food events, Black Monday, Cyber Friday, and end of the year clearance sales.
I've written a few now so feel free to check out the others.
