IHOP Pancake Days 2021

  • Start: April 1, 2021 12:00 am
  • End: April 30, 2021 12:00 am

For more than 15 years, IHOP has celebrated National Pancake Day®, a one-day, in-restaurant event where guests can enjoy a free Short Stack* of IHOP’s signature buttermilk pancakes, while also supporting the brand’s national and local charity partners. Despite an unwavering love of pancaking together under IHOP’s iconic blue roof, the safety of guests and team members remains IHOP’s top priority. With that in mind, IHOP announced the brand is cancelling its annual one-day celebration – and flipping it into a month-long event, issuing an IOU for a free Short Stack to be redeemed throughout the month of April.

To qualify for the offer, IHOP is giving its existing MyHOP email club members – and those who register for MyHOP by March 31, 2021 – an IOU coupon good for a free Short Stack of buttermilk pancakes starting on April 1, 2021*. That coupon can be redeemed throughout the month of April in-restaurant or to-go via IHOP.com or the IHOP Mobile App. Anyone who is not a MyHOP member can still get a free Short Stack during this time with a minimum $10 purchase in restaurants or to-go by downloading a coupon via IHOP.com or the IHOP app**.

Click here to join MyHOP before March 31 to ensure you receive your coupon.

But that’s not all, IHOP’S National Pancake Day is more than just free pancakes! For the entire month of April, local restaurants will be encouraging guests to continue to help them put purpose behind their pancakes by giving back to their local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.

Throughout April, guests can make a donation in-restaurants or online for as little as $1, and helps us continue change kid’s health and change the future!
