What’s better than the delicious salty goodness of McDonald’s fries? Free McDonald’s fries, of course. And getting them couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is download the McDonald’s app and order a minimum of one dollar’s worth of Mickey D’s through your phone. When you come in to pick up your meal, you’ll get a free medium order of fries with it. This offer began as a National French Fry Day promotion, but they decided to extend it—now, you can snag your free fries every Friday until the end of 2018! McDonald’s philosophy seems to be, “Why celebrate National French Fry Day when you can celebrate National French Fry Months?!” And we gotta admit, we’re totally on board. Here’s how to make a Big Mac at home.

If you’re someone with their finger on the pulse of free food deals, you might already know that you can stop by the International House of Pancakes on their designated “National Pancake Day.” The exact day is different every year—it was February 27 in 2018—but the sweet, sweet deal is the same. Starting at 7 a.m., customers can get a free short stack of pancakes purely for showing up. But that’s not the only day you can enjoy the deliciousness IHOP has to offer for free. By becoming part of the “Pancake Revolution,” IHOP’s rewards program, you’re automatically eligible for a free stack of flapjacks on your birthday and on every anniversary of the day you signed up.
