It’s National Cookie Day 2015

That’s right. Today, Dec. 4, is National Cookie Day.

So — free cookies!

Wanna score your cost-free sugar fix? Here’s where you can get ‘em while they’re hot (or take them home and microwave them):

Great American Cookies

Claim your free regular chocolate chip cookie from Great American Cookies, today only.

Not sure where that might be?

Check their website for the location nearest you.

Insomnia Cookies

College students, rejoice — your favorite late-night indulgence will get you a free chocolate chunk this Friday!

Make any purchase in-store or online — delivery minimums still stand, though. This deal is good through Dec. 5 at 3 a.m.

Whole Foods

It’s not quite free — but what did you expect from this Gucci-level grocer?

Grab a 25-cent chocolate chip cookie when you drop by Whole Foods to grab your quinoa and ground bison through Dec. 8.

You can celebrate National Cookie Day all week long at this southern grocery chain.

Not only will you get a free cookie today, you’ll get two dozen cookies for $5 Dec. 2-8 with your ValuCard!

Galley Foods — Baltimore Giveaway

Baltimore residents are super lucky — not only will you get free cookies today, you’ll get them delivered!

Just download the Galley iPhone app, sign in and tap the “Request Free Cookie” button.

By the way, can I have this button built into everything I interact with in life?

The Cookie Delivery Team will start delivering free cookies at 1 p.m. to participants, no maximum. How is that much win even possible?

Happy Friday, Charm City.

Hot Box Cookies — Columbia, MO; St. Louis, MO; Lawrence, KS

Hot Box ups the ante by giving away two free chocolate chippers today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Just follow one of their social channels — not hard, since they have Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and even Snapchat. Look for @hotboxcookies on your stream of choice.

Subway Canada

Chilly up there?

Warm up with a free cookie from Subway sandwich shops across Canada — just ask them to stick it in the oven for a second!

Choose from their three most popular flavors: chocolate chip, double chocolate chunk or white chocolate macadamia nut.

Nashvillians, you’re in luck — Christie Cookie Co is giving away free cookies 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.

ROCS Local Markets and Subways

If you live near one of these West Virginia-based convenience stores, snag a free cookie all day long today — but only if you prove you’re really in the holiday spirit.

You’ll have to sing a slightly altered version of “Jingle Bells” at the register. Cookies are totally worth the slight embarrassment, though, right?
