From ill-fitting ugly sweaters to that 50 States Coin Collecting Starter Kit, there are almost limitless options for what can count as a “lame” Christmas gift. The one thing they all have in common is you don’t want’em, and they’re a waste of space. But how about pizza? Do you want some pizza, would that ease the sting of disappointment? Pizza Hut thinks so, and is offering people gift cards to lessen the dissatisfaction that can occur in recipients of awful gifts.
Pizza Hut’s “gift exchange” isn’t just going to hand out cards to everyone, however. It only offered up the free pizza credits to the first 100 people who tweeted photos of their woeful presents to @PizzaHut with the #PizzaHutExchange or #PHXchange hashtags. So if you haven’t acted quickly by now, you’re probably out of luck.
Those who did score a card get $10 toward Any Pizza, which is always $10 no matter what you put on it or which size it is.
The good (?) news is that you can still keep your awful gifts of hairbrushes, mugs with silly sayings and a turkey hat, notes the Los Angeles Times of some of the lame gifts tweeted about so far. Yay!
