Pizza Hut wants you to make that trade that will put you over the top this season – so they’re chipping in a free pizza for you to sweeten the deal with your opponent. “You give me Brandon Marshall and I’ll send you Giovani Bernard – and a medium meat lover’s.”
Earlier this week, Pizza Hut announced a new promotion that works in line with Fantasy Football, in that owners can send in their trade offer to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a brief explanation as to why they need a pizza to help close the deal.
Each week, Pizza Hut will review the submitted trade offers and select winners, who will get promo codes to use as the “Ultimate Trade Bait.”
“We want people to be creative in their submissions,” said Doug Terfehr, PR Director, Pizza Hut. “If there’s something specific on our menu that an owner think will close the deal, we want to know. Maybe someone’s old college roommate and owner of that prized QB is a lover of Pizza Hut breadsticks. We want to know and we’ll factor that in as part of the trade offer.”
Here are three trade possibilities for those dealing with some early bad injury news:
- You give me Alshon Jeffery, and I’ll trade you Le’Veon Bell – and a large supreme pizza, which Bell will undoubtedly want because he gets the munchies.
- I’ll get RB Bishop Sankey and you’ll get Michael Floyd – and some wings … not Cardinals wings, though. That’s weird.
- OK, you send me Michael Crabtree, and I’ll trade you Josh Gordon – and a Meaty P’Zone that you can share with Gordon, since neither of you are going to compete in 2014! Hoooooo!
Good luck on your trade offers – and your free pizza toppings.
