Been Dumped? Here’s How To Get Free Dumplings

Really put the “dump” in “dumplings” this Valentine’s Day.

Let’s be honest for a second here. If you’re not in some kind of romantic relationship, Valentine’s Day is pretty miserable. It’s especially cruel if you were recently dumped. Actually, scratch that—if you were dumped any time within the last 365 days before this upcoming Valentine’s Day and are still single, it sucks.

Oddly enough, PF Chang’s relates to your pain and wants to ease the blow of celebrating this disgusting holiday by yourself this year. How, you ask? By giving you a free order of dumplings that you don’t have to share with anyone.

How To Get Your Free Dumplings From PF Chang’s

Getting your free dumplings is simple. All you have to do is text CHANGSDUMPlings to 855-697-6181 along with your breakup story. The restaurant chain does ask that you don’t reveal any personal information about your exes, including but not limited to:

  • Full names
  • Phone numbers
  • Photographs
  • Addresses

You’ll then receive a link to redeem your free dumplings either via online order or in the restaurant. For online, simply use the code DUMPLINGS. For dining in, show your server the digital confirmation on your phone. And note, you have to spend at least $1 to redeem your food freebie. Because your breakup is worth at least a free appetizer, according to the official statement from PF Chang’s.
