One of the yummiest times of the year has finally arrived! On Tuesday, Feb. 25 the International House of Pancakes, also known as IHOP, will celebrate National Pancake Day by offering guests free pancakes. 

Customers can cash in on IHOP’s freebie deal from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. However, the offer is limited to one short stack of IHOP’s famous buttermilk pancakes per guest. 

Along with chowing down on a free short stack, customers can also try their luck and enter for the chance to win more than 250,000 instant prizes, as well as, the grand prize of “Pancakes for Life.”

To enter the contest, guests will need to scan a QR code located on the signage at their table to find out whether they are an instant prize winner. Completing the required information will allow participants to also be entered into the grand prize drawing. 

Some of the instant win prizes include limited-edition pancake-themed merchandise such as bicycles, scooters, customizable jackets and more. In addition to the “Pancakes for Life” grand prize, 10 lucky winners will also be selected to receive $500 in IHOP gift cards.

Prices at locations vary and customers should call ahead to confirm whether their location is participating in National Pancake Day. 

Those who can’t make it to IHOP on Tuesday may want to consider visiting the restaurant chain Monday through Friday when guests can get “All You Can Eat Pancakes” by ordering IHOP’s Classic 2x2x2. 

Along with endless pancakes, the meal comes with two eggs and two strips of bacon or pork sausage links for $4.99. The offer ends on March 1.

“What better way to celebrate the start of a new decade than with our world-famous, ‘All You Can Eat Pancakes’ offer?” IHOP Chief Marketing Officer Brad Haley said in a statement

“And, for the first time, we’re giving our guests an even better deal with the opportunity to enjoy one of our most popular breakfast combos during the week - with as many pancakes as they can eat - for just $4.99. So, now is a great time to ring in 2020 and enjoy IHOP pancakes, pancakes, pancakes.”

Although IHOP offers diners a free short stack on National Pancake Day, customers are encouraged to make a donation in support of the charities the restaurant chain has partnered with like Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
