Woman Returns $5,000 She Found Inside Pizza Box, Gets Tasty Reward

Honesty was the best policy for Selena Avalos.

Let’s hope that Selena Avalos likes pizza.

Domino’s is giving her free pies for a year as a reward for returning almost $5,000 in cash that she mistakenly received in a bungled delivery.

The Spacetel Wireless manager from San Jose, California, was stunned to open up her order of chicken wings and breadsticks on Tuesday afternoon and find three gigantic stacks of bills in their place.

She later found out employees at a downtown branch had accidentally given her a box that had been destined for the bank.

Avalos says it never crossed her mind to keep the dough. “I was like, I can’t keep it, it’s a crazy amount of money,” she told KGO-TV. “It’s not like $20 that you find, you know? It’s almost $5,000.”

It’s not clear whether Domino’s has set any restrictions on her pizza consumption for the coming 12 months, or whether she’s entitled to other items on the menu. After all, she didn’t even order a pie in the first place.

But, perhaps further proving the old adage that honesty is the best policy, her bosses at Spacetel Wireless are also rewarding her with an extra week of vacation — with full pay.
