For IHOP, March 12 isn’t just any old Tuesday: It’s IHOP Free Pancake Day. IHOP has been celebrating the annual event — which was previously known as National Pancake Day — since 2006, and buttermilk-loving breakfast aficionados have been celebrating right along with the chain.

Free pancakes are guaranteed at IHOP, but why stop there? You can score pancake-related discounts elsewhere, too.
