Party like it’s your birthday!

This is so exciting!  Many restaurants offer special discounts or FREEBIES for your birthday!

  • You need to sign up for newsletters or join loyalty programs IN ADVANCE of your special day (at least two weeks) to score the birthday deals.
  • Many places also offer a sign up bonus!
  • Each offer has terms and conditions (purchase to receive freebie) and expiration date. Make sure to read the fine print carefully on the coupon.
  • All offers are subject to change and some are valid only at participating locations.
  • Most All of the birthday offers are for the week or month of your birthday and not just the day!

Please let me know any updates or additions to the list.

I wish you a Very Happy Birthday!

Note:  This is a national list, some locations are individually owned, so it is always best to call ahead of time and make sure that they are honoring the birthday freebie at your location.  Also, there are likely other places that I haven’t listed. If you have a favourite restaurant, give them a call and find out if they are offering a freebie too! I will update this list as often as I hear of other places, please email me if you know of one that I didn’t include!
