Is there truly anything better than a family outing for ice cream in the summer?
Well yes, actually, there is. The only thing that could make a family ice cream run better is a free family ice cream run. That dream can be your reality this weekend at McDonald’s.
McDonald’s is offering free vanilla soft serve cones this Sunday, July 16 at participating locations.

Plus, if you visit McDonald’s between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., you could be selected to win free soft-serve for life. That’s right—for life!
To score free ice cream this weekend, here’s what you need to do:
- Download the McDonald’s app to your phone.
- Redeem the free vanilla cone offer on July 16.
- Go to McDonald’s.
- Eat free ice cream!
McDonald’s is celebrating its new soft serve recipe, which is made without any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. The fast-food chain has been tweeting random compliments at people with the hashtag #SoftServed.
“For 24 hours, select fans will receive surprise tweets from @McDonalds that are sweet just like its soft serve,” according to a press release.
Predictably, people on the internet are just making jokes about how the ice cream machine never seems to work at McDonald’s. But hey, it’s worth a shot for a free cone either way, right?
