Dairy Queen serves up free ice cream to cool down on first day of Spring

The only thing better than ice cream is FREE ice cream, and Dairy Queen is serving up some sticky chins this Spring.

On March 20, which is the first day of the Spring season, ice cream lovers can get a free cone at their local Dairy Queen. Fans can enjoy a free small vanilla soft-serve cone at participating non-mall DQ and DQ Grill & Chill locations throughout the U.S.

But if you miss out on free cone day, DQ is offering a small regular or dipped soft serve cone for 50 cents, available only through the DQ mobile app on March 21-31 at participating DQ and DQ Grill & Chill locations. This offer includes the NEW DQ orange, creamy and crunchy dreamsicle dip, or the DQ classic chocolate dip.

Throughout the year on the DQ mobile app, fans will receive national weekly exclusive DQ deals on treats, food and beverages, redeemable only at participating DQ restaurants in the U.S., excluding Texas.
