LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Sept. 3, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Papa John's, the Official Pizza Sponsor of the NFL, is making one of the best times of year, the kickoff of the NFL season, a lot better by not just bringing back its award-winning, hand-tossed Buffalo Chicken Pizza, but giving consumers a free pizza offer. Now through Sunday, Sept. 15, orders of $15 or more will earn Papa Rewards members 25 bonus points when they use the promo code TOUCHDOWN -- enough for a free pizza.
"This is an exciting time of year for every football fan and we are pleased to add to the excitement by offering a free pizza to our existing loyal customers and new enrollees in the Papa Rewards loyalty program," said John Schnatter, Papa John's founder, chairman and CEO. "No matter how your team fares on the field this season, you'll be a winner with this great offer."
Fans can sign up for Papa Rewards by going to www.papajohns.com. Then, after making a purchase of $15 or more using the promo code TOUCHDOWN, 25 bonus Papa Rewards points will be deposited into their accounts for use on a future order. The bonus points must be used by Sunday, Sept. 29.
The return of the NFL season also means the return of Denver Broncos quarterback and Papa John's franchisee, Peyton Manning, who is starring in a new commercial with Schnatter. The commercial, which promotes the free pizza offer, is the first in a series of commercials featuring Manning and Schnatter that will run throughout the season.
"There's no better spokesman out there than Peyton to help us get the word out about Papa John's," said Schnatter. "He's one of the most admired and respected athletes who is very engaging with a great sense of humor, which you'll see in these commercials."
