Spring has sprung, and so has another month of great freebies. You can get everything from no-cost ice cream and pancakes to a free health exam and tax help.

Spring is in the air, and the freebies are in full bloom! Each month, Money Talks News brings you the best items and events that won’t cost you a penny, and March is no exception.

This month, we’ve got everything from complimentary ice cream to a free health screening and no-cost admission to a local museum. Here are nine freebies you can grab in March.

Free seeds from Cheerios, Tasty Bite and AmpleHarvest.org — ongoing

Flex your green thumb this month by grabbing either of two free seed offers.

The folks at Cheerios want you to get into the spring spirit by planting wildflowers. They are offering free wildflower seeds at the Cheerios website. Cheerios, which also is planting wildflowers on oat farms across the U.S., says, “We need the bees.” The goal is to provide habitat to help the threatened pollinators thrive.

Tasty Bite and AmpleHarvest.org have teamed up to offer 30,000 free packets of organic lettuce seeds. “The Good Seed” program simply asks that you agree to give some of your harvest to a local food pantry to help the many Americans who lack access to fresh vegetables.

Free rain gauge workshop at Home Depot — March 4

Just in time for spring showers, your children or grandchildren can learn how to build a rain gauge at the Home Depot. Each child will learn how to construct the gauge and have an opportunity to decorate it with a personal touch.

The event is from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 4. Register at the Home Depot website.

Free museum admission — March 4 and 5

Anyone with a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card can get free admission to any of  more than 175 museums and cultural institutions this coming weekend, on March 4 and March 5.

The freebie is part of the Museums on Us program. Present your card and photo ID to take advantage of this offer.

You can find a list participating institutions in the “Museums on Us 2017 participant roster” or the “Where can I find a museum near me?” map.

Free burger at Carl’s Jr. — through March 6

Do you love hamburgers so much that you’d eat one for breakfast? Prove it by stopping by Carl’s Jr. for a Breakfast Burger. Print out the coupon at the Carl’s Jr. website, and you can get a free Breakfast Burger with the purchase of a Breakfast Burger.

Incidentally, the Breakfast Burger is available throughout the day.

Free pancakes at IHOP — March 7

If breakfast burgers aren’t your thing, we’re betting you’re fond of pancakes. Celebrate National Pancake Day with a free short stack of IHOP’s Original Buttermilk Pancakes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on March 7. Some locations will push the promotion all the way to 10 p.m.

In return for the free food, IHOP asks you to make a small donation to one of the company’s charitable partners.

Free health screening at Sam’s Club — March 11

Make sure you’re in tip-top condition for all that spring fun by stopping by Sam’s Club on March 11. Between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., you can get a free health screening – even if you are not a Sam’s Club member. Screenings include:

  • Glucose levels
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Blood pressure
  • Vision
  • Hearing
  • Body fat percentage

This offer is only available at Sam’s Club locations that have a pharmacy.

Greet the first day of spring with a little free frozen treat. Each year, Rita’s celebrates the season by giving away a free Italian Ice, and 2017 is no exception. Last year, the chain gave away almost 1 million cups in just nine hours.

Stop by between noon and 9 p.m. to take advantage of this delicious tradition.

Free ice cream cone at Dairy Queen — March 20

If you prefer soft-serve ice cream to Italian ice, head over to Dairy Queen. On March 20, participating Dairy Queen locations will give away a free soft-serve cone.

Dairy Queen says some locations will offer up the cone in exchange for a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Others will give the cone away for free, but will add toppings or dip the cone for those who make a donation.
