ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Pizza is always a good go-to in an emergency and a new program at Domino’s is making it easier to get a pie when it’s most needed.

The international pizza chain has launched Domino’s Emergency Pizza, a way for customers to earn a free medium two-topping pizza.

Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Domino’s was founded in 1960 after Tom and James Monaghan bought “Dominick’s” on West Cross Street in Ypsilanti, according to the chain’s website.

“Perhaps you burned dinner, the power went out or maybe your in-laws just dropped in without notice – whatever your emergency situation, Domino’s believes a free pizza can make anything better,” said Domino’s senior vice president and chief brand officer Kate Trumbull in a release.

“Why did we launch Domino’s Emergency Pizza? With so much uncertainty in everyday life, we believe everyone needs a pizza pick-me-up at some point! The hardest part may just be deciding when to use your Emergency Pizza!”

Qualifying orders will trigger an emergency pizza to be rewarded to Domino’s Rewards members, who can redeem it through their account. The free pizza can be earned through Feb. 11, 2024.

Here’s how to get some free pizza:

  • Customers who place a digital carryout order worth $7.99 or more will earn an Emergency Pizza. They have seven days to claim the reward when logged into their Domino’s Rewards (or by joining the program).
  • Pizza lovers will see the reward in the “My Deals & Rewards” page of their account. They have 30 days to use it.
  • Emergency pizza rewards can’t be redeemed on Oct. 31, Dec. 31 or Feb. 11.
