Domino’s 150K Hotspots Will Satisfy Your Pizza Cravings at Parks, Beaches
Because having pizza delivered to your doorstep isn’t enough, now you can get pizza delivered to a landmark of your choosing.
Domino’s has introduced Domino’s Hotspots, a delivery service to “select popular locations without traditional addresses like parks, beaches and more.”
More than 150,000 hotspots are active nationwide, the company announced this week.
“We know that delivery is all about convenience, and Domino’s Hotspots are an innovation that is all about flexible delivery options for customers,” Russell Weiner, president of Domino’s USA, said in a statement.
How to Get Domino’s Delivery Just About Anywhere
The pizza chain makes it simple to order online or through the app. Instead of delivery or carryout options, choose Domino’s Hotspots and use your device’s GPS to find nearby delivery options.
When you select a particular hotspot, you’ll receive instructions for the exact spot to meet your driver. You can also add a note to help your delivery driver find you, like a note about your clothing or car color.
Paying cash isn’t an option for this service — you’ll have to pay upfront with a card. The usual delivery charge applies, but there is no additional fee for hotspot delivery.
Hotspots near The Penny Hoarder’s office in St. Petersburg, Florida, include the local marina, tennis courts and a baseball stadium parking lot.
One might argue that you should plan your adventures enough to avoid sudden pizza delivery cravings. But one might also be a victim of many of those cravings, and simply enjoy knowing they can get pizza delivered to a tennis court.
Cravings can lead you to make questionable dietary choices; caving to those cravings can completely ruin your budget. UberEats, Seamless and other delivery services charge anywhere from $3.99 to $7.99 for delivery, and that’s if you’re getting it delivered to a legitimate address.
Getting your order dropped at your favorite park bench, however, is probably out of the question.
