IHOP Celebrates National Pancake Day With Free Stack Offer
This year, the day we celebrate the most delicious type of cake, a pancake, falls on February 25. And to celebrate National Pancake Day, IHOP’s Pancake Gods invite the nation to their place of worship for a bargain. Although it is much earlier than the date of March 12 of last year, IHOP still had time to prepare rather the party.
From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, anyone who walks into an IHOP can walk out with a totally free short stack of buttermilk. While you don’t have to pull out your wallet to pay, the breakfast destination asks you to consider donating. All donations go directly to benefit children’s hospitals (Children’s Miracle Network and Shriner’s Hospitals for Children) and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. iHop has made similar charitable commitments for past Pancake Days. This year, they aim to raise $ 4 million.
“The communities where IHOP and our franchisees operate are at the heart of everything we do, and National Pancake Day is a great example of our commitment to helping the children and families who are our guests, neighbors, friends and family.” said Stephanie Peterson, director of communications at IHOP.
Free stacks are limited to one per customer, but IHOP’s pancake party doesn’t end there. While you enjoy your little slice of Sunday heaven, scan this QR code on the table tent card. By doing this, you will be entered to win one of 13 IHOP swag prizes (see full list below), or the grand prize: Pancakes for Life.

The âCrÃªpes pour la vieâ prize comes in the form of a $ 15,000 gift card. We’ve done the math, and that amount could earn you a short stack of buttermilk every day for seven years. Honestly, by the time you hit seventh grade you might be done with the pancakes. For life.
If you’re not that dedicated to IHOP, or are just looking to double up the pancake celebrations this Sunday, you can pick up some cut-price cakes in a few other joints as well:
- Denny’s: When you register for the Denny’s rewards program, you get 20 percent off your next order. Plan that right and pay 20 percent less for pancakes on Sundays.
- Waffle restaurant: No free pancakes here, but get a free order of hash browns when you join their Regulars Club!
- Friendly: Sign up for their BFF Club and get 25% off your next order!
And, for pancake lovers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas, North Carolina, and Missouri, Celebrating National Snooze Pancake Day is an experience not to be missed. The AM Eatery puts pancakes in the spotlight all week. They recruited their top chefs to create unique and delicious new pancake flavors (think Coffee n ‘Donuts, Local Garden Cake, Cajon Cochon) and donate 100 percent of the profits to the development and maintenance of local gardens.
