Discount for Pizza Hut Delivery 30min late?

I ordered a pizza from Pizza Hut online ahead of time, to be delivered at 6:30pm. At 7:00, there was still no sign of the pizza; I called the restaurant and was told that my pizza would be leaving the restaurant soon... half an hour after it was supposed to be delivered?

Do they have policies about getting a discount for pizzas being delivered late? It's not like the delivery boy got lost- it hasn't even left the restaurant.

Update:

But when you order ahead online, you can specify to have it delivered on a certain day at a certain time in the future, down to the minute. It finally came at 7:25, 50 minutes later than delivery had been scheduled.

    They do not advertise it as a guarantee of 30 minutes or less anymore. They were having drivers ticketed, paying for pizzas for being late and driving like crazy to get the pizzas there on time (it is a myth that they yanked the guarantee after a driver killed an Indiana woman while speeding to deliver a pizza). They stopped doing it almost 10 years or so ago. If you read the fine print on commercials it says something like "This is an estimate not a guarantee" or something like that.

    Depends on the store policy - some do some don't. When you order, ask about it - keep an eye on the advertising and if that's what it says, then that's what you should get. Do check first, and I guess if it is only a few minutes late, don't be narky about it, but if it is more than 20 - 30 minutes late, I'd call the pizza shop BEFORE it arrives and let them know the delivery is now x amount of time late, and ask what can be done about it. In the best of worlds things do go wrong, give the guy a chance to explain - could be a break down, or hold up or anything in between. If the service is not satisfactory - let the pizza shop know but don't be one of those people who complain about everything just to get something free. It won't do you or your reputation any good and you'll be remembered and possibly ignored so what will you have gained?

    I ordered a pizza from pizza hut at 2:50pm. It's 4:39pm and I still have not received the pizza. I called Pizza Hut and was told that it was out for delivery. Actual delivery time was 4:42pm.

    No, I don't think any pizza place guarantees delivery times anymore.

  • 10 years ago

    They don't have a thirty minute policy anymore. But that quite a long wait if you requested it for a future time, I would tell them you're dissatisfied and they might give you something for the inconvenience

    see if you can't negotiate a discount if you specifically asked your pizza to be delivered at 6:30. how far ahead did you order?
