On July 1, Spinato’s will be introducing online ordering and payment. In advance of that, they are inviting the public to help them test the new system. On June 20-22 and June 27-29, they will be offering a buy one get one free (of equal or lesser value) to anyone who orders online. (It’s Spinato’s way of saying thank you for helping them test the new system, since they’re expecting a few bugs.) If anyone runs across any problem and can’t complete their order online, they’re encouraged to call the restaurant and let them know – they’ll still be eligible for the deal. The limit is two free pizzas per order. To learn more, click here.
