Need some useless trivia knowledge? Shaquille O’Neal and Oreo share a March 6 birthday.

It only makes sense that these sweet superstars would team up for an epic National Oreo Day celebration we can all enjoy: Oreo is giving away 1 million Oreo chocolate candy bars.

And by 1 million candy bars, I mean 1 million coupons for candy bars.

How Do I Get My Free Oreo Candy Bar?

To get your free Oreo chocolate candy bar, you’ll need to be one of the first 1 million people to sign up on its site. You have until 11:59 p.m. EST March 12 to register, but if the Auntie Anne’s birthday deal taught us anything, you’ll want to register ASAP.

If you end up being one of the first million, you’ll receive a confirmation email on or around March 16. You’ll receive the coupon six weeks after the promotion ends — just long enough to forget you signed up in the first place.
