Domino's just doesn't have enough drivers right now, so it wants you to come get your own pizza — and it's even ready to pay you to do it ... kinda.

Starting Monday, customers who order their pizza online and choose carryout will receive a $3 "tip" in the form of a coupon code. The $3 code can be redeemed on another online carryout order the week after it's earned, and the promotion lasts through May 22. 

The offer comes just in time for the Super Bowl, which is also one of the busiest days for pizza delivery. Domino's sells around 2 million pizzas on Super Bowl Sunday, the company says.

Domino's has also been in the news for altering promotions to help offset the rising cost of food. It recently made its popular $7.99 carryout deal, good for a three-topping pizza or wings, available online only. It also scaled back the number of wings in those orders from 10 to eight.
