How does a slice of free cheesecake sound?

On Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, the Cheesecake Factory is handing out 40,000 slices of cheesecake nationwide to celebrate its 40th birthday.

And though "free" sometimes comes with a cost, this one appears to actually be free. As stated on delivery service DoorDash's website, "You don't have to order anything and can still get your slice of cheesecake for free." 

We're listening! (And reading the fine print.)

Here's how the free cheesecake deal works:

Step 1: Get the DoorDash app on your phone, or open it on desktop.

Step 2: Log in before 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018. (The deal starts at 11:30 a.m., and they might go fast. Better to be logged in ahead of time.)

Step 3: Add one slice of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake to your cart. The deal is good for slices $8.95 or less.

Step 4: Use the promo code FREESLICE.

Step 5: Wait.

Step 6: Greet your DoorDash delivery person kindly, then eat your free dessert. 

Cheesecake Factory is infamous for its giant menu and not-so-healthy options, but look: If you're jonesing for free Cheesecake with no driving, walking or running required, perhaps you'll look beyond the extra calories in a free slice.

All DoorDash deliveries from Cheesecake Factory will come with free delivery all week, DoorDash says.
