Friday, August 6th is National Root Beer Float Day at A&W locations across the United States. It's one of the best days of the year if you're an ice cream lover because the chain is giving away free root beer floats to customers.

You don't have to buy anything in order to redeem your free float either. You just show up, and they'll hook you up. The offer is good for a free small float from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

They'll also be asking for your donations to charity. This year's charity is Disabled American Veterans. They money they collect during National Root Beer Float Day will go directly to that program which helps vets. A donation isn't required, but it is appreciated.
