Wednesday, December 5, 2018 starting at 11:30 AM local time, you can take advantage of the deal. So how do you get a slice for yourself? Good news, you don't even need to leave your house. According to Bustle -

For the promotion, The Cheesecake Factory has teamed up with DoorDash, the food delivery service. To get a free slice of cheesecake, you'll have to place a Cheesecake Factory order through DoorDash and use the promo code "FREESLICE" when checking out. There is no minimum amount of money that must be spent in order to use the code, and the deal will continue on December 5 while supplies last.

So you might think that you'll just a plain slice, which is still amazing, but nope, you get to pick from the ones offered on the menu. Why does it feel like our birthdays and not the restaurants? The closest Cheesecake factory is in Schaumburg, but hey maybe they'll deliver to us!
