Super Bowl LIII is now just a couple weeks away! It will feature the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, of which both teams won overtime thrillers on Championship Sunday.
While Black Friday and Cyber Monday are often thought to be the best times to make big purchases, this time of year is great to buy a a couple things: TV and Pizza. Retailers are trying to cash in on the Super Bowl hype by slashing prices on TVs and certain Electronics with post-holiday season sales and the upcoming Super Bowl (can we call it a holiday?) in mind.
Where can you buy the cheapest pizza?
If you’re interested in finding the cheapest pizza, we analyzed several Pizza chains for the best pricing. Among popular online chains we found Papa John’s to have the biggest discount coupon codes slightly edging out Dominos and Pizza Hut. But some smaller or local chains may offer even better pricing, and speaking of ordering local you can try the SliceLife app and to order from a local pizzeria and use code APP3 for $3 off your order.
All of this information and more can be found in our “The Real Price of Pizza: How Much Do Americans Spend Per Square Inch?” infographic post here: https://couponfollow.com/research/the-real-price-of-pizza

Recap of Deals from Last Year and Expectations This Year
Last year the Philadelphia Eagles stopped the Patriots from being repeat champs in very entertaining fashion. While the Eagles will not have that chance again, the Patriots will have an opportunity at redemption. Let’s take a look at last year’s happenings based on data seen by CouponFollow robust tracking system, and what to expect for this year.
Last year we saw quite a few great deals mostly from Food & Food Delivery services, as well as online retailers especially in the TV and Tech space. Notably, Papa John’s gave away a free large pizza with any order of $15 or more and Postmates teamed up with Chipotle to offer free delivery.
We also saw deals from smaller chains too
Most commonly we saw the coupon code phrase “FOOTBALL”, “SUPERBOWL” or “SUPER” ( often with an associated amount, such as SUPER20) used by retailers who participated in the sporting event by offering a discount.
2019 Super Bowl Deal Predictions
- The week before, and days leading up to the Super Bowl expect coupons and deals from Food as well as some regular retailers.
- Expect Steeper than normal discounts from Pizza Chains like Papa John’s, Dominos and Pizza Hut.
- Expect promotions such as Free Delivery or Discounts from Food Delivery services like Postmates, Seamless, and Grubhub (as well as lots of ads leading up to and on game day!).

- Expect more Pizza deals the following weekend on Saturday, the date of National Pizza Day in 2019 which is February 9th.
- We suspect various codes like SUPERBOWL, FOOTBALL, and SUPER53 will be a commonly used by retailers participating in sales.
Our game prediction: Patriots 34, Rams 30.
