Mom Confessions Mom Confessions
So I NEVER order pizza. I always make my own pizza - it's way cheaper. Well, I got my ads in the mail yesterday, and included was a 1/2 page of adds for Papa John's. One of the adds said that you could buy 2 large 2 topping pizzas for 7.99. Not 7.99 each, but 7.99. Nowhere on the coupon did it say each! There were other coupons that said you could by XXX or XXX for 11.00, or the 2 topping 2 medium pizzas for 5.99 each. This coupon didn't say each, or, etc. It was worded the same way as the breadsticks and 2 liter for $5 deal. So I called and ordered my pizza - large pizza with extra sauce, tomatoes and onions, and another large pizza with extra sauce, onions and pineapple. The lady said it would be ready in 15 minutes. I show up, the cashier tells me it's $24 and some change. I'm like, "whaaaaa?" I show her the coupon. She explains it's a misprint. She's very nice. Told me she can drop it down to $14 and give me free breadsticks. She apologized again and again. I'm a little bummed, because I was expecting to pay a little under $10 or so, but I understand. The lady then drops it to $10 and still gives me the free breadsticks because of the confusion. I told her I would pay the $14 anyway, so she threw in some extra sauce and a drink. Good deal! I pay and sit down to wait on the breadsticks. There was another lady sitting there, and she informs me I'm stealing from Papa John's, and I should pay the $24 without wanting free anything. Ummm... Ok. Why should I? I could've been rude and just walked out, leaving them with 2 pizzas they would have to trash. Instead, I was nice (although the cashier could I was bummed) and understanding. I think the cashier felt bad over not being able to give me the pizzas for 7.99, so she did what she could. I thought the cashier was super nice, but apparently I just stole pizza, breadsticks, extra sauce, and a drink from Papa John's. How silly.

The cashier did a great job with it. I wasn't paying over $20 for 2 pizzas, but the $14 for what all I got was a good deal for sure.

Nope, they made a mistake it was on them to make it right.

That's how I felt. It's not like I screamed and threw a tantrum until I got free stuff.

Quoting Megan11587:

That isn't stealing.  That woman just sounds ticked that she didn't have the same experience.

You didn't steal anything.There was a screw-up that wasn't your fault,and to preserve good customer relations,Papa John's compensated you for it.I would say that was good business dealings on their part.That lady needs to pull the breadstick out of her ass and go on with her life!

Used to steal pizza daily in highschool. We figured how to manipulate a school discount (printed our own cards)

Even on misprints they are supposed to honor the ad. Im surprised they didn't tell you the total when you called. Every time I've called Papa Johns they do.

If anyone did wrong it's Papa John's for misleading advertising. You can't do the "old bait and switch". Illegal business practice.
You on the other hand did absolutely nothing wrong.

It's not your fault the ad was misprinted... You have it in writing you get 2 pizzas for $7.99. You were more than reasonable.
