Man Uses 17-Year-Old Coupon For Frozen Pizza Bundled With PC Game

The man known as the Lazy Game Reviewer was given by a viewer an old copy of the 1997 combat flight sim Red Baron 2 for the PC, and inside was a coupon for 75 cents off a Red Baron frozen pizza.

The coupon did not have an expiration date, however, and so our lazy friend took it to a grocery store to try to use it. Lo and behold, it actually worked.

The moral of this story, of course, is that you definitely need to buy a bunch of old PC games off eBay or Amazon Marketplace like right now. The other moral is that there should be more coupons in boxed games.


    Seems sort of silly to throw away a rare coupon like that, but I guess since it was used to make a video I guess it can be excused. :)

    Red Baron, classic game there.

    Oh man I miss Red Baron frozen pizza. It can't possibly be as good as I remember it being, but still.

    Pizza and video games = extreme fatness. Anyway, pizza from a chain store is not all that tasty. Go to a local independent pizza store and experience some flavour. Do yourself a favour and walk there and back.

    Thing is, in 1997 75 cents may have been a significant discount. Unfortunately not so much in 2014.

      Using an inflation calculator, that would only be $1.09 today.
      If it was in 1975, then it would have been $3.26.
      I don't know how much the Pizza would cost though.

        Well yeah the pizzas themselves even in 1997 would have been cheaper back then, meaning that 75 cents represented a higher percentage of the pizza's total cost. I can't find any information on how much frozen pizzas in the US cost in 1997 though.

    Sounds like a spin-off to me. Extreme couponing, Retro gaming edition.
