Spring is underway, and the flowers and freebies are blooming. From complimentary ice cream to no-cost photos for military members, we’ve rounded up several exciting deals to help you save a little green this April.
Free ice cream — April 9
Here’s the scoop: Tuesday, April 9, is Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry’s. The fine folks at the beloved ice cream company will be handing out gratis cones from noon to 8 p.m. “at a host of locations.”
Celebrate this special day with cool, creamy — and perhaps best of all, complimentary — ice cream. But call ahead first to make sure your favorite location is participating.
Free pet photo with the Easter Bunny — April 13-14
The Easter Bunny is coming to town, and he’s headed straight to PetSmart! Grab your furbabies (and your human ones) and head to your local retailer between noon and 4 p.m. on April 13 and 14 for a free family photo with the rabbit himself.
Free AAA membership for Sprint customers — ongoing
If Sprint is your cellphone carrier, you may have a free AAA membership in your future. Sprint says it will pay for its customers’ next annual AAA membership renewal. According to the company:
Sprint will pay Classic or Basic AAA membership renewal for as long as you remain a Sprint subscriber.
To take advantage of this deal, you must be an active Sprint subscriber.
Free Tax Day goodies — April 15
Each year on Tax Day, millions of Americans breathe a sigh of relief — and celebrate with various freebies.
This year’s freebies have not yet been announced. But last year, they included more than a dozen food freebies.
Keep an eye on Money Talks News as April 15 approaches, and we’ll give you the lowdown on all the great gratis goodies that will be available this year.
Free satellite radio — ongoing
Spring is the time to hit the road and enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. But before you back out of the garage, make sure you have the right tunes or talk radio for your ride.
Right now, you can enjoy three months of SiriusXM for free.
You’ll get everything from the Beatles Channel to stations that highlight your favorite sports or genres of music. Plus, you can stream online and on the Sirius app. To get this satellite radio deal, you must have a car with an eligible, inactive factory-equipped satellite radio.
Free national parks admission — April 20
April is the perfect time to enjoy the beauty of our nation’s park system, and on the 20th, you can leave your wallet at home. In celebration of National Park Week, the National Park Service is waiving entrance fees at locations across the country.
Free pretzels — April 26
In honor of National Pretzel Day, Philly Pretzel Factory is offering a free pretzel to every guest from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT.
Wetzel’s Pretzels usually extends this exciting offer, too.

(At the very least, you’ll want to take advantage of these tasty Auntie Anne’s perks available to rewards club members.)
