UPDATE: We’ve received several responses from readers, stating the P’Zone is not available at their local Pizza Hut. Apparently, it is now being offered only in certain markets. A “local favorite”, so to speak. If you find a location offering the Pizza Hut P’Zone, please let us know where and how much it costs. Thanks!
Do you remember the Pizza Hut P’Zone? It was first introduced about 20 years ago. It’s one of those “for a limited time” menu items that appears, disappears, then pops up again a few years later. This time, Pizza Hut has brought back the P’Zone and included it in their $5 ‘N Up Lineup menu.
What is a P’Zone? It’s basically a calzone filled with pizza! You can choose from 3 varieties:
– Pepperoni P’Zone
– Supremo P’Zone
– Meaty P’Zone
The Pepperoni P’Zone is the one included in the $5 ‘N Up Lineup menu. That’s where you purchase at least 2 items and pay just $5 or $6 each. If you just want one Pepperoni P’Zone, the price is $5.99. The Supremo and Meaty P’Zones are not available as part of the $5 deal. They will cost you $5.99 each.
As always, P’Zones are available for a limited time at participating locations. Prices may vary. If you can’t get them in your area or if your local store has different pricing, please let us know so we can pass it along to our readers.
Louisiana residents, I have some bad news: Louisiana will not be having a Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday or tax free weekend in 2024. The tax and budget deal passed by the legislature will end Louisiana’s state sales tax holidays until at least 2025. All purchases of emergency supplies will be subject to the normal combined state + county + city sales tax rate. In most areas, the total sales tax is between 9% and 10%.
In previous years, shoppers could purchase virtually any item for use during the upcoming hurricane season and receive a reduction of Louisiana state sales tax. Portable generators, flashlights radios, batteries, chargers, coolers, sheeting, ground anchor systems, storm shutter devices, blue ice products, carbon monoxide detectors, and fuel tanks were included.
Keep your fingers crossed and maybe (hopefully!) your legislators will reinstate the Louisiana Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday for 2025.
This tax holiday applied previously but has NOT yet been approved by the Alabama Legislature for 2024. As soon as I receive further information, this page will be updated. Be sure to check back often!

Louisiana hunters, I have some bad news: Louisiana will not be having a Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday or tax free weekend in 2024. The tax and budget deal passed by the legislature will end Louisiana’s state sales tax holidays until at least 2025. All purchases of hunting supplies will be subject to the normal combined state + county + city sales tax rate. In most areas, the total sales tax is between 9% and 10%.
In previous years, sportsmen and women could purchase virtually any item for use during the upcoming hunting season and receive a 2% rate reduction of Louisiana state sales tax. Bows, arrows, clothing, tree stands, knives, decoys, binoculars and range finders, scopes, GPS, even ATVs (four wheelers) were included.
Keep your fingers crossed and maybe (hopefully!) your legislators will reinstate the Louisiana Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday for 2025.
Which stores are participating in the back to school sales tax holidays? As far as I know, ALL OF THEM! Since back to school sales tax holidays draw customers into stores and shopping malls, why wouldn’t they participate?
Of course, not every store offers items for sale which qualify for tax free status. Not all retailers have stores in states which are allowing sales tax holidays and/or tax free weekends. But as far as I know, all stores in participating states which offer eligible tax free items for sale are participating in the various back to school sales tax holidays which are being held throughout July and August, 2024.
Sometimes, stores selling items which are not included in the tax free weekend will host their own “No Sales Tax” sales and promotions. In this case, the retailer will give the customer a discount equal to the amount of sales tax being charged. Tax is paid to the state, but for the buyer, it’s like getting the item “tax free.”
State sales tax holidays and tax free weekends only last for a few days each year. Be sure to get to your favorite stores and shopping malls and take advantage of these back to school promotions and deals before it’s too late!
