When it comes to homemade ice cream, we’re down—particularly if you’re talking about something made from fresh ingredients, like this refreshing rhubarb ice cream or this an over-the-top creation like our giant peanut butter ice cream sandwich. But when we hear about free ice cream, we’re more than just down….we’re downloading. And that’s exactly what we did when we heard Baskin Robbins gives you a free scoop of ice cream—any flavor—the first time you download the BR Mobile App and either register a new account or log in with an existing baskinrobbins.com account.
If you too are among the ice-cream obsessed (and who among us isn’t?), then here’s why you simply have to take advantage of this offer:
How it Works
The entire process took me less than a minute. Here’s all you have to do:
- Search for the BR Mobile App in your mobile app store, and download it to your phone.
- When you open it, you’ll have the choice of plugging in your email addy or registering with your Facebook info. Then you’ll see this:
- Click on “DEALS”. Then you’ll see this:
- Click on “FREE REGULAR SCOOP”. Then you’ll see this:
The coupon will arrive at your email address within 24 hours, at which point you’ll have 30 days to use your coupon. But if you’re at a Baskin-Robbins store, and you want your ice cream scoop right this very minute, you can click on “REDEEM IN-STORE.” But note: if you redeem in-store, you really have to be ready to order that scoop because the coupon expires then and there if you don’t use it.
Other Ways to Use the App
The BR Mobile App lets you pay right from the app, allows you to access the nutrition and allergen information on all your menu choices, keeps you up to date on all the latest deals, coupons and promotions—and perhaps most importantly to the ice-cream obsessed, lets you know about new flavors and seasonal treats.
This month, for example, marked the introduction of Horchata Ice (in celebration of Cinco de Mayo). And come July, with the app you’ll be the first to know when the award-winning flavor, Blackberry Hibiscus (blackberry ice cream swirled with blackberry hibiscus ice and wrapped with a blackberry ribbon), makes its debut.
The app also spells out the limitations that apply to this free scoop deal, namely, that it’s available at participating Baskin-Robbins locations in the US, and it can’t be used during Celebrate 31 events or for waffle cones. Also, it doesn’t include tax or toppings—but it’s a great deal nonetheless!
