Good news: Spring is almost here.

Even better news? Dairy Queen is celebrating by giving away free ice cream cones again!

We told you about this deal last year (and we may have indulged in a free cone or two ourselves!), so we’re excited to report that it’s back again this year.

Dairy Queen wants to help you celebrate the first day of spring the right way—with ice cream!

All you have to do is show up at a participating Dairy Queen on March 20 and ask for your free cone. You’ll get a small vanilla cone at no charge!

Note that this deal is only available at select locations and that Dairy Queens located in malls are not participating.

According to Dairy Queen, this deal is going on all day. It’s limited to one per person, but there’s no limit to the number of friends you can bring with you!

Ben & Jerry’s Giving Away Free Ice Cream, Too

But the free ice cream doesn’t end after March 20. Ben & Jerry’s is giving away free cones on April 10!

All you have to do to take advantage of that deal is visit your local Ben & Jerry’s between 12 and 8 p.m. that day.

Check the Ben & Jerry’s website to find participating locations near you.

And there are no restrictions on the free cones. So, you can enjoy an old favorite like Chunky Monkey or Phish Food.

Or use this as an opportunity to sample one of their new 2018 flavors, such as non-dairy Cinnamon Buns or Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake.

Get prepared for Free Cone Day by watching this video of all of Ben & Jerry’s delicious offerings, but be warned—it might make you hungry!


Haagen-Dazs Free Cone Day: Mark Your Calendar

You can literally get free ice cream all spring long, if you’re willing to put a few dates in your calendar, including May 8. That’s when Haagen-Dazs gets in on the action with its own Free Cone Day.

You can get a free sugar cone, cake cone or cup at any participating store!
