Unbelievable deal from Domino’s Pizza Japan makes Wednesday best day of the week

We’ve seen Domino’s Japan do some incredible things for its customers before, but one recent campaign that they’ve been doing quietly in the background might just be their most impressive yet.

The campaign was brought to the attention of the Internet by Japanese Twitter user @violin9914, who stumbled on Domino’s unbelievably good “Big Wednesday” deal. They were so blown away that they posted a picture (above) for the rest of the world to share in their excitement.

The white text in the promo reads:

“Limited to Wednesdays: Buy one pizza and get two free. We’re giving you a special coupon that can be used towards a delivery order.”

One free pizza is exciting, but TWO free pizzas is just too good to be true! What could possibly be the catch?

Apparently, there is none. It’s just a very generous deal limited to online orders.

The total for three medium-sized pizzas would normally come to 2,400 yen, while three large-sized pizzas would normally be 3,600 yen. However, by applying the five-character codes directly beneath the prices in the screenshot below, customers could get a full trio for the price of one.

Net users who weren’t already aware of the campaign reacted in awe of the news:

“Because of this I hereby dub every Wednesday ‘Pizza Day’ at my house.”

“There is no Domino’s near me… so sad.”

“This is so crazy. You could have pizza for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and probably for breakfast again!” 

“800 yen for one pizza is pretty good. But I don’t really need three.”

“I feel a little bad for the part-time workers who have to complete the orders.”

While Domino’s Japan isn’t entirely clear on whether the “Big Wednesday” campaign is in effect for an indefinite time period moving forward, it’s still listed prominently within their website’s Hot Deals section, which means it’s probably around for a little bit longer at the very least.

“800 yen for one pizza is pretty good. But I don’t really need three.”

....says someone who doesn't own a fridge or an oven. Reheated pizza is great. I used to order online from Domino's about once a week back when I ate dairy. If they started using non-dairy cheese, I would take them back.

Is this special available every Wednesday? The article isn't clear about that.

Still grossly overpriced imo. You get a D's pizza for $5.00 in oz, that's 400 yen.

Factory pizza at its worst. And these are the types of establishments that make sure to put on their website that what you see in the photo doesn't guarantee what you will get upon ordering. Countless times I've ordered pizza from Dominos and it arrives totally dried out and cold, about 1 teaspoon of tomato sauce on the entire pizza, or small items broken/falling apart inside the box. They gladly put this stuff in a box and out the door without any care that you are actually paying money for this overpriced crap

Unfortunately not, it was only valid on the 13th feb according to the screenshot.

Two for one is often done here, especially if you pick up at the shop rather than have it delivered. 3 for one is great value (for Japan), but if its only a one-time offer thats a pity

They are incredibly stingy with toppings. I ordered a pizza with olives, and they had put ONE sliver on each slice.

I wonder... if you asked them, would they put the toppings for all three pizzas onto one pizza? That way, you'd actually get one whole pizza with real toppings!
