Today is March 20, 2017, and it is the first day of spring. While most people are pumped that this hopefully means that warmer weather is right around the corner, I’m most excited about snatching up some free Rita’s. To hell with flowers blooming and new beginnings and all of that bullshit, give me a cup of birthday cake Italian ice for the unbeatable price of free ninety-nine.
To make sure that you don’t miss out on my favorite food giveaway of the year, let’s breakdown everything you need to know about the 25th annual edition of this beautiful holiday.
How To Get A Free Rita’s Italian Ice
Date: Monday, March 20, 2017
When: 12:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M
Where: All Locations
Rita’s has over 600 locations nationwide, so it shouldn’t be too tough to find one within traveling distance. To find the Rita’s location nearest you, head on over to their site. All you have to do is pop in your zip code, and you will know just how far you’ll need to go to get your fix. You can only get one free Italian ice per person, but you can always hit up multiple locations or rock a sweet Bobby Valentine disguise if you’re feeling especially bold.
Rita’s is also running a contest where they’ll be giving out prizes to 25 lucky customers. To enter the contest, post a picture of yourself enjoying your free Rita’s on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #RitasFirstDayofSpring. Whoever has the most creative photo will win free Italian ice for a year, and 24 finalists will each receive $25 Rita’s gift cards. The contest will run from 12:00 P.M. ET on Monday, March 20 through 11:59 P.M. ET on Friday, March 24. Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor.
