Sunday is a day to save some dough.
Feb. 9 is National Pizza Day and businesses across the nation are celebrating with discounted pizza and other specials. Through rewards programs and signup offers, you also can score a free slice or pie.
One of the best pizza deals isn’t at a restaurant but at the gym.
Planet Fitness is hosting “an epic carbs and cardio pizza, bagel and workout party” Sunday at its approximately 2,000 U.S. locations and everyone is invited, even if they’re not a member.
From 7 to 10 a.m., there will be free bagels, and from 4 to 7 p.m., there will be free pizza, while supplies last. Planet Fitness also is inviting anyone 18 and older to work out for free Sunday with valid photo ID.
In the past, National Bagel Day also was held on Feb. 9, but the hole-y day moved to mid-January this year to avoid sharing the spotlight with pizza.
According to an analysis by Womply, a small business software provider, local pizza restaurants expect higher than usual foot traffic for the food day. With the Academy Awards Sunday, pizzerias and delivery services also could be busy.
