Friday food deals and freebies
Free ice cream and pretzels plus BOGO tickets to minor league baseball games.
Where did the week go? Here it is Friday again and time for Friday food deals and freebies, with a few inedible offers added just for fun.
This is the last weekend for free admission to all U.S. national parks, though some are always free.
Some of last week’s deals and coupons are still valid. Kelli
B. Grant from partner SmartMoney has some store coupons at the end of her post.
You’ve got three chances for free or cheap ice cream.
Baskin Robbins’ 31-cent Scoop Night is back from 5 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, April 28.

Carvel is giving way free 3.5-ounce cups of its new low-fat ice cream, with a choice of one of 12 new flavor shots, all day Thursday, April 29.
And you can still get a 25-cent Dairy Queen Blizzard if you buy one at full price through Sunday, April 25.
Here are the rest of the new deals we found with some help from our friends at Cities on the Cheap:
- National Pretzel Day is Monday, April 26. At Pretzelmaker/Pretzeltime, you can get a free pretzel by singing a snippet of a song or saying “National Pretzel Day.” At Philly Pretzel Factory, you don’t need to sing to get your free pretzel.
- You can get a free Deli Trio Grilled Sandwich at Jack in the Box with this printable coupon. It’s good through May 2, unless you live in Austin, Texas.
- At Ikea, $1 buys you a 10-piece Swedish meatball plate (regular price is $4.29) after 11 a.m. April 24-25.
- $25 certificates from Restaurant.com are $2 through April 26 with code MEAL.
Remember that not all local restaurants participate in all national promotions, so you may want to call ahead.
Here are a few deals you can’t eat:
- Buy one ticket to a minor league baseball game and get one free on Tuesday Night Tickets nights with a Kraft Singles wrapper. The deal is valid on home games through Sept. 7 except in Allentown, Pa.; Dayton, Ohio; Indianapolis; Lansing, Mich.; Montgomery, Ala.; Pasco, Wash.; Reno, Nev.; Spokane, Wash.; Tacoma, Wash.; and Vancouver, British Columbia.
