National Pancake Day Is Upon Us; Here Are 6 Restaurants Offering Deals
March 3 is National Pancake Day, an annual event when the breakfast diner offers customers a chance to save money with a free stack of pancakes in return for a donation to charity. IHOP started celebrating National Pancake Day in 2006 and since then has raised close to $16 million for charities and community organizations. This National Pancake Day marks the 10th year of the event for IHOP.
But IHOP isn't the only restaurant to get a deal on pancakes for National Pancake Day. GOBankingRates also found current deals from Denny's, Mimi's Cafe and others. Find out how to save money and get your pancake on today and throughout the week.
IHOP is offering one free short stack of Buttermilk pancakes per guest that dines in. In return, guests will be asked (but not required) to make a donation to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals or other local charities. This year, IHOP has stated its fundraising goal is $3.5 million. Donations to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals are tax-deductible as well.
