The annual free National Pancake Day at IHOP is normally held in early March. However, in 2021, they're giving away a free stack of buttermilk pancakes during the entire month of April!
Veteran Hiffers will recognize this recurring yearly offer, but here's how it works if you're new to the game.
- Join IHOP's free MyHOP rewards system before March 31.
- Go to a participating IHOP during April.
- Eat one free short stack of pancakes.
That about sums it up. You can search by zip code on their site to make sure your local IHOP is participating before heading out.
In lieu of payment, they'll ask you to make a donation to one of three children's charities: Children's Miracle Network, Shriners Hospitals for Children, or Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It's not required, but it's a nice thing to do. Besides, we're all nice people here, aren't we?
This freebie also triggers the IHOP free birthday pancakes offer AND you'll get a free pancakes coupon emailed to you just for joining today! I feel like Oprah screaming “you get pancakes, they get pancakes, everybody gets pancakes!”
