Domino’s have withdrawn a 50% discount for Trinity students after the code associated with the offer “spread outside of Trinity in a very big big way”.
In an email yesterday, Trinity College Dublin Students’ Union (TCDSU) Comms Officer Julie Smirnova told members “I have good and bad news”.
“Unfortunately, Domino’s have withdrawn the previous ‘TRINITY5’ discount code from circulation as there was an enormous uplift in its use which caused operational issues.”
The offer had originally been advertised to students in an email sent on Monday, and was valid on orders of €12.99 or more.
However, Smirnova added that “instead of pulling the discount completely”, Domino’s had offered a new discount of 30% on orders over €20.
Smirnova asked members to “please be sound” noting that Domino’s may not be in a position to renew the offer in future if it is spread beyond the approximately 22,000 recipients of the email.
“Please don’t broadcast it to the entire country: that’s a lot of pizza,” Smirnova added. “This is for you and your class!”
The new offer remains valid until May 5, the final day of exams, while the original deal had been due to expire this evening.
Dominos have been a regular sponsorship partner of TCDSU for at least seven years, regularly offering exclusive discounts and being a staple at many union-related social events.
TCDSU has wished students well in exams, with Sabbatical Officers being present at the RDS Simmonscourt venue to support students for the duration of assessments.
Students seeking support are encouraged to reach out to Welfare and Equality Officer Chloe Staunton or Education Officer Zoe Cummins.
