Free Italian Ice Day at Rita’s — Today Only, March 20, 2016

G et one free Italian ice at a participating location of Rita’s stores across the United States in celebration of the first day of Spring today, Sunday, March 20, 2016 from noon through 9:00 in the evening — an annual ritual which is in its 24th year.

Free Ice for a Year Photography Contest

There is also a contest which you can enter by simply following the instructions listed below:

  1. Capture and submit a photograph showcasing your first day of spring fun at Rita’s — be creative, show your tongue, your excitement for Rita’s, and everything in between
  2. You must follow Rita’s on Twitter and/or Instagram to qualify — be sure to have your account set to public — and followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram will be directed to tag their photos with the hashtag #ritasfirstdayofspring
  3. Submissions of photographs will be accepted until midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, March 25, 2016

Rules, Terms and Conditions

Participants must be located in — and a legal resident of — the 50 United States and the District of Columbia; and participants must be 13 years of age or older. Rita’s franchise owners, their employees and members of their immediate families — for example, spouses, children, siblings, parents — and persons living in the same household as such persons — whether related or not — are ineligible to participate in the contest.

The three winners of the grand prize — one each week — will win free ice for a year in the form of 52 free Regular ice coupons at a total retail value of $132.60, which can be used at any Rita’s location.

The winning photographs will be judged based on creativity, originality and the showcasing of your first taste of Spring at Rita’s — as determined by Rita’s — in its sole discretion.

Other rules, terms and conditions apply.


This promotion is basically similar to the one last year.

Dairy Queen had a similar promotion five days ago in which free small vanilla cones were given away to customers as a “taste of summer” to come — which is ironically earlier than this promotion celebrating the first day of spring. Hmm…

…anyway, enjoy your first taste of Spring with a free Italian ice!

Hmm…Italian ice…on a Sunday? How about a sundae?!?…
