When is National Flip Flop Day?

Historically, National Flip Flop Day was celebrated on the third Friday of June. However, this year it has changed to the first Wednesday after Memorial Day. Meaning we’ll celebrate it today, May 31, 2023. National Flip Flop Day was created by Tropical Smoothie Cafe in 2007 to raise money for the Camp Sunshine program, a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.


Get a 12-ounce Strawberry Margarita Smoothie on National Flip Flop Day, May 31, 2023.

On May 31, you can go to your local Tropical Smoothie Cafe to get a free 12-ounce Strawberry Margarita Smoothie (regularly $4.29). Of course, you can only get it if you’re wearing flip-flops. Additionally, you won’t be able to make any alterations or additions to the free smoothie. You can’t get this deal online because a Tropical Smoothie employee has to verify that you are wearing flip flops. Note that your free smoothie can only be claimed from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Supplies are limited at each location, so make sure to get there as soon as you can to get your freebie.

There are over 1,000 Tropical Smoothie cafe locations across 45 states (excluding Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, and Vermont). Contact your local Tropical Smoothie Cafe to see if they are participating in this event.
