Where to Get Free Ice Cream This Sunday, July 15th


July is National Ice Cream Month, and Sunday is National Ice Cream Day, so it’s time for discounts. Refinery29 and U.S. News have lists of chains offering free and discounted ice cream. Some deals are just for Sunday, some run all next week, and some are around all month.

The outlook isn’t as great as National Donut Day, when several national chains handed out free donuts, some just asking you to buy a coffee first. So far there are only two truly free nationwide deals: “Mini cups” for two hours at Dippin’ Dots, and a free small Blizzard if you download the Dairy Queen app.

Pizza chain Your Pie is giving out free gelato on Sunday. Baskin-Robbins, Cold Stone, and Carvel have a buy-one-get-one deal. Ben & Jerry’s stores are offering nothing, which sounds less hippie and more Republican. Their pints are two for $6 at Whole Foods, Friday to Saturday. The rich get richer.

Know any ice cream deals at your local store? Know anyone offering free ice cream, no purchase necessary, no questions asked, possible to double up if you bring a hat and sunglasses and talk in a British accent? Know why ice cream stores are stingier than donut shops? Help us help America.
