ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — To avoid burning $4-a-gallon-gas on summer trips this year, many people are turning to so-called “staycations” and enjoying their time off from work at home. Domino’s Pizza (NYSE:DPZ) wants to know just how creative people are getting and what American staycationers are planning to do with their free time. The delivery experts will award the person with the most creative staycation plan with $1,000 worth of Domino’s Pizza gift certificates.

“As gas prices keep rising, consumers are becoming more creative when it comes to ways to save money on everything from travel to dinner,” said Patrick Doyle, president of Domino’s USA. “If you plan on spending your time off of work at home this summer, forget about cooking or spending a lot of dough. For around $20, a family of four can enjoy a great meal from Domino’s with no gas burned. That’s less than going out to a restaurant and maybe even cheaper than cooking at home between the gas and groceries. Plus, there’s no preparation and little clean-up.”

Contest begins on June 20 and runs through midnight Eastern Time on July 1. Go to for complete rules. Staycation contest entries should be sent to Please provide your name and contact information.
