Check back in March for details on National Pretzel Day 2019

National Pretzel Day is a day that you can spend some time appreciating pretzels and their history, but you'll really want to grab your keys and hit the road to get as many free pretzels as you can.

National Pretzel Day 2018 is on Thursday, April 26. Below you'll find a list of places that are going to give you free pretzels on this day. Most are no purchase only while one of them asks for a donation. You can see all the details in the descriptions of the offer.

I highly recommend calling your local location before you head out to get your free pretzel so you don't waste a trip. Most of these offers should be for most, if not all, locations, but it never hurts to double check.
