Pizza Coupons – Buy 10 Get a Free Pizza
I have a deep love for pizza, a sentiment many would likely echo since it's such a universally adored food, almost as essential as air. During my pizza-loving days, I had a special drawer in my bedroom where I diligently collected various pizza coupons that I'd cut out from pizza boxes. You might wonder how a young kid managed to amass such a collection. Well, the answer was simple: I'd find them on pizza boxes left in front of people's houses when they tossed them out. Strangely, people often neglected these coupons.
Armed with my trusty pocket knife, I could collect seven or eight coupons a week, and during meatless Friday months, I could easily double that count. This meant I could enjoy free pizza almost every other week, not just for myself, but also with my friends. It truly felt like a golden era of pizza, a memory that still crosses my mind whenever I'm hit by hunger pangs, like right now.
I've held onto a bunch of these coupons, relics from pizza places that no longer exist. Even though they might lack any "cash value" today, they hold significant sentimental value for me.
