Dairy Queen Free Blizzards

The one time downloading a restaurant app is worth it

It usually takes more than just a side of free fries to get us to download yet another app on our phones, but the promise of free ice cream? That's when we frantically start clearing up space and deleting old photos.

Right now, if you download Dairy Queen's mobile ordering app and set up an account, you'll receive a digital coupon for a complimentary Blizzard that's redeemable at most of the chain's locations across the U.S. (with the exception of Texas—sorry). And, true, you could delete the app the second that cup of soft-serve ice cream is in your hands, but as Thrillist notes, regular users of the app will get access to more deals on ice cream (and food) all summer long.
