No, Domino’s isn’t giving away coupons for two large pizzas if you share this post

Journalists are known to put away a lot of pizza in newsrooms, so we here at PolitiFact regret to inform you that this Facebook post promising coupons for free slices is pie in the sky. 

"Dominos is now 50!" reads the Aug. 22 Facebook post on an account called "Dominos," misspelling Domino’s Pizza. "To celebrate we are giving each share by 7 today a coupon valid for 2 pizzas! - Dominos."

This post, which was shared more than 2,100 within the day, was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.) 

We’ve debunked similar scams before. In 2018, for example, we found a survey to get free Delta tickets was fake. Same goes for an online offer for free Dunkin’ Donuts

Featured Fact-check

Here, there are some clues that the pizza offer isn’t genuine. The "Dominos" Facebook account that posted the free-pizza promise was created today. The real Domino’s Pizza Facebook account was created Jan. 10, 2008.

Also, the company isn’t turning 50. 

"We’re nearly 60!" Domino’s spokesperson Jenny Fouracre told us in an email. 

We rate this Facebook post False.
