DQ FREE Ice Cream Cone Day

March 14, 2020

UPDATE 3/14/2020 – As per the following e-mail which I just received, DQ is postponing Free Cone Day 2020:

“In light of the growing concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus), and the precautions established by the World Health Organization and government agencies around large public gatherings, we made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Free Cone Day, which was scheduled for Thursday, March 19 in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.”

We will provide updates on this page as soon as they are available. Please disregard the previous information below which is now only for reference purposes.

Dairy Queen is celebrating the first day of spring by giving you a FREE taste of summer! Just show up and receive a free small vanilla cone as a “thank you” for being a DQ ice cream fan and supporting them all these years. In addition, the 5th Annual Free Cone Day will help raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals via donations from customers. Mark your calendars because this deal is available for one day only. Stop in and enjoy the first day of spring with a free Dairy Queen ice cream cone!

Offer available only on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at participating non-mall Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill locations. Limit 1 free cone per person. Not valid in conjunction with any other coupon or special promotional discount. Most DQ restaurants will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 21.

Dairy Queen DQ $6 Meal Deal

March 11, 2020

Sadly, the Dairy Queen $5 Buck Lunch is no more. It has become the latest victim of food price inflation, replaced by DQ’s new $6 Meal Deal. The bad news is that the price has increased by 20%. The good news is that unlike the $5 Buck Lunch which was available only from 11AM-4PM, the $6 Meal Deal can be ordered anytime!

Choose the 1/3 Double Burger with Cheese Meal Deal or the 3-Piece Chicken Strip Meal Deal. Each comes with a 21 ounce drink, fries, AND a famous DQ Sundae for dessert!

The DQ $6 Meal Deal is available for a limited time at participating locations. Menus may vary in Texas. Prices may vary in Alaska and Hawaii. Not available during breakfast hours. Most Dairy Queen restaurants will be open regular hours on St. Patrick’s Day (Tuesday, March 17.)
