News or Noise: Free pizza for Facebook users? Not so fast!

October 11, 2017 11:24 PM

Businesses often have giveaways or major sales to celebrate anniversaries. But have you seen the post claiming Pizza Hut is giving away free pizzas to Facebook users to celebrate its latest anniversary?

One of the many posts circulating claims Pizza Hut is gifting two free pizzas to EVERYONE on its 60th anniversary. The coupon sure looks real -- It's got Pizza Hut's logo, a bar code, and even the fine print.

But when you click on the coupon, you're taken to a survey where you have to answer a few questions. On that page, it says you better hurry up because there are only 332 free pizzas left. 

After taking the survey, you're then asked to share the post with your friends.

But is this too good to be true?

Look at the web address the free pizza link takes you to: "" and "" - neither of which are associated with Pizza Hut.

Pizza Hut took to Facebook to warn its customers: "There is a fraudulent coupon circulating on Facebook claiming to offer a free pizza from Pizza Hut; the posts link to a site that requires users to share with 15 friends in order to redeem. This is a scam. This was not created by Pizza Hut."

Sorry folks, cancel the pizza party, because this post is all NOISE.
