The Cheesecake Factory Is Giving Away Free Food for April Fool's Day (and It's Not a Prank)
$250,000 worth of food, to be exact.
April Fool’s Day can be a pain, especially when you get excited about something just to find out that it was a joke. We promise we aren’t doing that when we tell you this: The Cheesecake Factory is giving away a ton of free food on April 1.
The Cheesecake Factory is joining forces with their exclusive delivery service, DoorDash, for a special April Fool’s Day deal, offering customers not only a waived delivery fee on all orders from April 1 through April 7, but also the chance to win $25 to put towards their order. They’re giving away $250,000 in total, meaning 10,000 customers will get a reward.
“On a day where most people play pranks and make jokes, we are so pleased to offer 10,000 of our guests something that is real and meaningful,” said David Overton, Founder and CEO of The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated. “We hope all of our guests will enjoy delivery from DoorDash throughout the week without a delivery fee.”
Want in on the deal? The $25 rewards will be given out on a first come, first served basis starting at 4:00 PM ET on April 1 on the promotion webpage. The rewards, which will come as promo codes, will be available for one hour, or while supplies last (and we have a feeling they won’t last long).
Those hoping to win must have a DoorDash account and be signed into that account before they go to the promotion website, doing so on the same browser and device that they are using to try to win the reward. A link on the promotion website will read “CLAIM FREE FOOD.” Be one of the first 10,000 people to click it, and it’s yours.
The free delivery offer is a lot easier to claim: It will be automatically applied at checkout when you order from the restaurant on the app or website, no minimum order required.
So instead of surprising your friends and family with whoopie cushions and toothpaste in their Oreos, try offering them some discounted cheesecake instead. Maybe karma will take care of you next April Fool’s Day.
