If your weather is anything like ours today, it doesn't have you thinking spring, HOWEVER, Rita's is giving away free Italian ice (and if it's like last year, for an additional $1 you can add a scoop of custard on top to make it a gelati, YUM) for the first day of spring.
Dairy Queen is giving away free soft serve ice cream cones (and some will do cups for celiacs like me) at participating locations for free cone day and accepting donations for the Children's Miracle Network.
Lovely freebies to kick off spring, and hopefully bring on some sunshine and flowers soon.
I found out about the Rita's deal through their awesome loyalty program, and I'm working on an e-mail right now that includes a list of my favorite loyalty programs. Programs that give you deals and steals not just on your birthday, but throughout the year. Stay Tuned!
