You should be able to use the date command as follows/

DATE=$(date -d "+2 days")

You don't say what the OS is so your local date command may vary.

AIX 7.1

The option that I've pointed out should work fine in AIX 7.1 use the
man date

command for further information.

no in aix:

aix-tst:/$ DATE=$(date -d "+2 days")
date: Not a recognized flag: d
Usage: date [-u] [+"Field Descriptors"]

We get asked how to do date math in AIX so often I made a perl script for it. It's a GNU-date-alike that supports the "-d" option. It shouldn't require you to install any fancy modules.
