Toronto really doesn't like the Pizza Pizza promotion after Raptors games anymore
Pizza Pizza's Raptors promotion just isn't what it used to be, and Toronto residents are no longer impressed with the deal that requires a purchase and often doesn't work properly.
Pizza Pizza's original Raptors deal meant that every time the Raptors scored 100 points or more, fans with a ticket stub could go to any Ontario location and claim a free slice of cheese or pepperoni pizza the following day.
RAPTORS are BACK! This season, when the @raptors score 100 points + WIN at home, fans across Ontario can redeem for a free cheese or pepperoni slice, with the purchase of any slice the following day.

Toronto residents have taken to social media to complain about the less-than-exciting deal, and some are saying Pizza Pizza probably couldn't afford to give out that much free za considering how often the Raptors score 100 points.

One resident also said the change in the promotion prevents some from donating the free food to charity.
"A year ago, [Pizza Pizza] changed their Raptors Free Slice promotion to buy one get one through mobile," Justin W. wrote online.
"[Fix the 6ix] was a charity you gave ticket stubs to so they can feed the homeless. I messaged Pizza Pizza and got a generic reply and have boycotted since. 1 year and still going."
Since the change in Pizza Pizza's promotion, the program has sadly been discontinued.
In addition to complaints about the change in the deal, pizza lovers are also having trouble getting the promotion to work in the first place.
@pizzapizza @Raptors can somebody please explain the raptors Pizza Pizza offer to Pizza Pizza. I believe all you need is the App and the code and that you don’t need the tickets. The stores seem to think differently.— M3 M3 (@bmwm32008) January 3, 2019
Some have experienced glitches within the app, and others have had issues when trying to claim the deal in store.
Whichever way you look at it, it seems Pizza Pizza might as well get rid of the promotion altogether because, in the words of one unimpressed resident, "[no one] talks about this Pizza Pizza deal after a Raptors victory [because no one] gives a damn [about] a deal that requires [you] to pay a slice to get a slice."
