Yay! Today is National Ice Cream Day, so you know what that means…deals and perhaps FREE ice cream. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy your favorite flavor and your favorite place. Now, don’t go rushing to the nearest shop any expect to stick your mouth under the soft serve machine (I know you thought about it lol.) However, you can check out some freebies via below:

Free Ice Cream Deals


The deal: Buy one get one free soft serve ice cream cones. Any size, any soft serve flavor.

When: July 19th.

When: July 19th.


The deal: To celebrate both its 80th birthday (July 18th) and National Ice Cream Day, participating Friendly’s locations will give you a free scoop of ice cream in a cup or a cone, when you buy one for $1.99.

Dairy Queen

The deal: This one’s a big question mark. Since most DQ’s are independently owned and operated, we were told National Ice Cream Day revelers should call their local outpost to find out about scoring any deals. We called the Dairy Queen in Manhattan, but no discounts or freebies there.

When: July 19th
