Deals to scoop up for National Ice Cream Day Sunday.

It's National Ice Cream Day, and while ice cream prices have been on the rise, businesses are offering deals and freebies Sunday.

Much like with National French Fry Day last week, businesses are using the freebies and deals to build bigger customer databases and drive loyalty.

Ice cream prices in June increased 12.5% with inflation over last year and are expected to continue to rise, while demand for the frozen treat hasn’t thawed.

Sunday is the last day teachers can save with Kohl's teacher discount and the first day of Target's 15% teacher discount.

Starting Sunday and through July 23, at Baskin-Robbins get $5 off any purchase of $15 or more in-store and online.

Details: Use code BECOOLER at checkout for online orders and scan a coupon from the chain’s app to redeem the deal in ice cream shops.
