Free Pancakes at IHOP Tomorrow

As part of National Pancake Day tomorrow, February 24, participating IHOP restaurants will be giving out free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.—no coupon or purchase necessary. IHOP patrons, however, are asked to donate the price of the meal—or more—to a local childrens hospital or charity. To find an IHOP near you, use the chain's locator. [via YumSugar]... More

Free Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream for Voting

As if you needed a reason to do your civic duty, but free ice cream don't hurt nothin'. "Come to participating scoop shops on November 4 from 5 to 8 p.m., show us you voted and you'll get a free scoop of ice cream. Show us your 'I Voted' sticker, a photo of you in front of your polling station, do the 'I Voted dance,' or just tell us you voted." Hmm. Those guidelines seem pretty lax. I predict a rampant amount of ice cream fraud the evening of the election.... More

Free '90210' Ice Cream

"Free ice cream. Cool ZIP code." I have no idea what ice cream has to do with 90210, but the CW network has come up with a stunt to promote the revival of that icon of '90s teen dramas: To promote its already much-hyped ZIP Code revival, The CW will give away 100,000 ice cream novelties over the Labor Day weekend. The network has hired ice cream trucks to drive around waterfront locations in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago to distribute the tasty treats. The story at TV Week says there will likely be ice pops and "something from the chocolate family." We'll be fine as long as there are no sideburn-shaped creamsicles.... More

Free Chick-fil-A If You Dress Up for Cow Appreciation Day

Celebrate the fourth-annual Cow Appreciation Day July 11 by dressing up as a cow and heading over to Chick-fil-A to grab your reward of a free meal. You get an entree, a side, and a beverage. If you're too "chicken" to go all-out, Chick-fil-A will give a free entree to anyone who wears any piece of cow-themed attire. [via FastFoodCritic]... More

McDonald's Says Eat More Chicken For Breakfast

McDonald's Southern-style chicken biscuit tastes like an oversized McNugget in a buttery, greasy biscuit that you've had so many times before. It's too late to snag a free Southern-style chicken biscuit from McDonald's—the breakfast promotion lasted today between 7 a.m and 10:30 a.m—but if you missed out, don't worry; it wasn't totally free. As we mentioned before, there was a medium or large drink caveat, so the "freebie" cashed in at a minimum of $1.50. Overall, it wasn't the most mind-blowing experience since McDonald's already sells biscuits and chicken McNuggets, and together, they approximate this same taste concept. But borderline mind-blowing is that you can eat fried chicken for breakfast without hauling to a less-accessible Chick-fil-A or sneaking in last... More

McDonald's Giving Away Chicken Sandwiches; Dunkin' Donuts Handing Out Iced Coffee

McDonald's today is giving away its Southern Style Chicken Sandwich. The offer starts at the breakfast-to-lunch switchover and runs to 7 p.m. at participating McD's. The sandwich, which apes Chick-fil-A's signature creation to good effect, is free with the purchase of any medium or large beverage. The chain is also giving away its Southern Style Chicken Biscuit breakfast sandwich—same deal, but I can't wholeheartedly recommend that product. Find a McD's here. (Limit one per customer per bev buy.) Dunkin' Donuts Pouring You Free Iced Coffee And why not head on over to Dunkin' Donuts for a post-McMeal iced coffee? From 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. today, participating stores are giving out 16-ounce cups of Dunkin's original or flavored iced... More
