If you’re a math geek, a pizza (or pie) lover or simply a fan of a good deal, March 14 (Monday), otherwise known as National Pi Day, has a little something for you.
As a reminder for those of you haven’t taken a math class in a while, pi (3.141596253…) is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is surely the most widely known mathematical constant.
But even if you aren’t a numbers nerd, you may want to check out some of these awesome (and mouthwatering) pi-themed promotions:
- Blaze Pizza: Check out your local Blaze Pizza on Pi Day for $3.14 build-your-own personal pizza deals.
- Urban Bricks Pizza: The Texas pizza chain is celebrating Pi Day with $3.14 pizzas all day on March 14.
- Grand Traverse Pie Company: Get a free slice of ABC Michigan Pie from this Michigan-centric chain with any purchase on March 14.
- Kitchenworks: Save 15 percent on pie-related products with code PIDAY314 on March 14.
- Pizza Hut: If you’re a math whiz (or a fan of free pizza), check out Pizza Hut’s Pi Day math contest for a chance to win 3.14 years of free pizza. On March 14 at 8 a.m. ET, the pizza chain will post three math questions on the Pizza Hut blog. The questions, developed by acclaimed math genius John H. Conway, distinguished professor of pure and applied mathematics emeritus at Princeton, will vary in difficulty from high school to Ph.D. level. You need to be the first person to solve and submit the correct answer to just one of the problems to qualify for a chance to win the free pizza, which is valued at $1,600. “I’m eager to challenge America with these problems and find the next great pizza-loving mathematician that can solve them,” Conway said in a statement. Read the contest rules here.
- Your Pie: The pizza chain, which has locations across the country, is reducing the price of its delicious brick oven pizzas by $3.14 on Pi Day. Call before you stop in to make sure your area restaurant is participating.
