Okay look, we’re not sure how much more of this we can take. All these weird holidays seem to get more bizarre and specific with each passing day, but we keep covering them because there are plenty of neat freebies and deals attached to them. For example, today is “National Root Beer Float Day” and who wouldn’t want a free root beer float? There are actually three different made-up holidays this week that’ll get you free stuff or at least some pretty decent deals, and Offers.com rounded up all the highlights. National Root Beer Float Day is today, as we mentioned, and then National Frozen Custard Day is on Thursday. Finally, Saturday is National S’mores Day and we wholeheartedly support making yourself a yummy s’more even if you don’t take advantage of any of the deals mentioned below.
