National Ice Cream Day (also known as FREE ICE CREAM DAY!!!) is today, Sunday, July 19. And, because the only thing better than ice cream is ice cream you don't have to pay for, here's a quick guide to national chains offering specials. Some of them run all month long!

Baskin-Robbins
For the entire month, you can upgrade your double or triple scoop cone to a waffle cone for free. And, on July 31st ice cream lovers can enjoy 31% off of all ice cream sundaes at participating Baskin-Robbins locations nationwide.

Friendly’s
Buy a cup or cone of ice cream and get the second free one today (yay!). BOGO gives us so much joy.

Cold Stone Creamery
This one is a members only deal (so sign up to be a My Cold Stone Club member, because why not?). Members will get a free ice cream "creation" with the purchase of one. The deal also applies to Cold Stone’s shakes, smoothies, and its new frappés.
Dippin’ Dots
Participating Dippin’ Dots locations will be handing out free samples of its newest flavor, Redberry Sherbet, which is made with Sour Patch Kids.

Hoffman's Chocolate
Another BOGO deal, Hoffman's is offering two for one cups and cones all day. You can bring us your extra, we'll wait.

For all of these deals, call first and double check before you head out. Deals are often up to the discretion of the local store owner.
