Thanks to Faye, WRAL.com's Smart Shopper, for sharing that April 8 is Ben & Jerry's annual free cone day.
No purchase necessary. You can just go to your Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop and get a free cup or cone of ice cream. The shops do collect for charity on these days. I usually donate $1 per cone and get a card that gets me 10 percent off scoop shop purchases for the next year.
For details, check Faye's post.
