    I’m so sad we missed this! Could you please post earlier in the week next year? Is it the same date every year? Thank you!

      Darn! So sorry you missed this post, Jenn! I just did a quick search and it seems that National Pancake Day is always celebrated on February 28th, though the offers from IHOP may vary. 🥞 If you’re not already following us on Telegram, we shared this deal yesterday there too. You can check out more details about Telegram here. Also, another great way to hear about some hot deals is to follow us on Instagram! Hoping this might be helpful! I’ll be sure to pass along your request to the team too! ❤️
