DALLAS - April 17, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Here's a slice of life. Actually, make that the whole pizza pie. 7-Eleven, Inc. will give some lucky pizza-lover a lifetime of hot, cheesy pizza in the first-ever Pizza for Life Sweepstakes. The contest runs through Friday, May 16, which happens to be National Pizza Party Day.
Pizza for Life Sweepstakes entry forms are available on the 7-Eleven® smartphone app. The app is available for download via the App Store or Google Play. To enter, click on the "What's in Store" calendar tab, then the 'gimmepizza' icon and fill in name and email address on the pop-up entry form. Entrants must be at least 18 years old to participate and can enter once a day.
After the entry is completed, an option appears on screen to share the sweeps information on Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #GIMMEPIZZA4LIFE.
The prize value is $10,500, and the winner will be notified by the end of May.
"Pizza is popular with our guests," said Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of marketing and brand innovation. "Because it tastes so good and is a great value. No coupons, no limited time offers – just large hot pizzas for $5.55 each. The only better deal is if you happen to win the Pizza for Life sweepstakes!"
The retailer, which began selling hot-to-go pizza just five years ago, offers large, hot Pepperoni and Triple Cheese pizzas for just $5.55 and a large Deluxe Meat pizza for $6.99. 7-Eleven's Deluxe Meat pizza is topped with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, beef, pork sausage and diced bacon, while the Triple-Cheese pizza includes melted mozzarella, cheddar and parmesan cheeses.
As an added incentive, customers purchasing any size can or bottle of carbonated soft drinks made by Coca-Cola, Pepsi or Dr Pepper/Seven-Up will get $1 off the already value-priced Pepperoni and Triple Cheese pizzas.
