Here’s All The Free & Cheap Food You Can Get For March Madness 2023

Grab some snacks for the Big Dance. 🏀

March Madness has taken no prisoners this year. With everyone’s brackets effectively busted, most people are feeling a bit let down after the first couple rounds of games. But with the rest of the tournament about to unfold, the last 16 teams aren’t the only things that’s sweet.

We’ve rounded up all the best food deals and freebies you can get in honor of March Madness 2023. Scroll to find your next free (or super discounted) meal. 👇


Get a large pizza and a five-piece order of wings from 7-Eleven for just $10.

Auntie Anne’s

On game days, Auntie Anne’s is offering free delivery when you order online or via the Auntie Anne’s app.

If you’re a rewards member, you can participate in the Pretzel Mania challenge. Visit twice before April 5, and you’ll get a free original or cinnamon sugar pretzel.

Visit three times, and you’ll be automatically entered to win a prize pack (including a pretzel bucket and Auntie Anne’s merch).

Buffalo Wild Wings

Two new sauces dropped in honor of the NCAA tournament: Buffalo Ranch and Honey Garlic. Be sure to give them a try!

Plus, any time a game goes into overtime, Blazin’ Rewards members can snag a free order of wings when they check in at Buffalo Wild Wings on game day or place an order online. Six free boneless wings will be added to your account the following day.

Burger King

Melts are back at Burger King, and they’re celebrating the re-launch in a big way. BK Royal Perks members can enter the Royal Meltness sweepstakes for a chance to win a variety of prizes: think t-shirts, gaming consoles, and even a trip to Vegas worth $50,000.


The new Cry Pie from DiGiorno was launched just for March Madness. The pizza has only onions on it, allowing you to hide your tears by blaming it on the pie.

It’s a classic thin crust pizza with mozzarella and a white alfredo sauce, and covered in three types of onions (caramelized yellow, crunchy green, and classic red).

Firehouse Subs

Use promo code HOOPS through April 2 to get $2 off any sub. Just be sure to order through the Firehouse Subs app.

Noodles & Company

Vote for your favorite noodles if you’re a Noodles & Company rewards member. The winner will be announced and offered at a discount on April 2.

Pizza Hut

If you’re old enough, you’ll remember the mini basketballs Pizza Hut back in the 90s. They’re available for $7, while supplies last.

Pizza Hut also brought back the 90s classic—the Big New Yorker. The pizza is a 16-inch New York-style pizza, and the box can be turned into a makeshift basketball hoop, too.


Order now through April 3 at Qdoba to get double points. The chain is also offering some great party packs during March Madness to help feed everyone at your house during game day.
