Free museum access for military members — through Sept. 2
Blue Star Museums — “a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense and museums across America” — is offering active-duty military personnel free admission to participating museums through Labor Day.
Members of the National Guard and Reserve are also eligible. See details at the National Endowment for the Arts website and find a Blue Star Museum near you.
Free ice cream, hot dogs, fries and more — throughout July
July 21 is National Ice Cream Day, and many places are likely to celebrate by giving away cool, creamy, complimentary treats to customers.
At the time this article was written, Baskin-Robbins had announced two pre-packed quarts of any ice cream for just $7.99 — hardly free, but a deal nonetheless. We hope to see other ice cream parlors announce freebies soon, though.
As if free ice cream wasn’t enough, you can expect more freebies to be announced in coming days and weeks. They include:
- Free Slurpees on 7-Eleven Day — July 11
- Free fries on National French Fry Day — July 13
- Free hot dogs on National Hot Dog Day — July 17
Stay tuned to Money Talks News for additional details as they become available.
