The wait is over: Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day 2018 has arrived. From noon to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, Ben & Jerry’s locations around the country are dishing out free ice cream cones to all customers.

To get free ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s today, all you have to do is find a participating location, wait in line, and place your order.

Instead of falling on a particular date each year, Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is generally held on a Tuesday in early April.

What makes Ben & Jerry’s free ice cream day particularly special is that customers can get as much free ice cream as they want. With most giveaways involving ice cream—or for that matter doughnuts, pretzels, hot dogs, coffee, or anything else—there is usually a limit of one freebie per customer.

That’s not the case with Ben & Jerry’s special day, however. Ben & Jerry’s says that customers can get as much free ice cream they want on Free Cone Day. The only requirement is that you must wait in line again each time you want another helping. And yes, some people say they go back three, four, even five times to snag yet another free cone.

Finally, if you’re obsessed with free stuff, ice cream, or both, pencil in May 8 on your calendar. That’s when Haagen-Dazs Free Cone Day is being held. But be warned: Unlike Ben & Jerry’s, Haagen-Dazs has a limit of one free scoop per customer.
