Birthday Deals

Trying to eat free today to justify spending more money on comic books, so I'm searching for places that will give me free food.

Most of these you must first sign up for their free frequent customer club or email list or whatever. I'll update this post as info is added.

Applebee's
Arby's - free small shake with purchase
Atlanta Bread Company
Baskin Robbins
Ben and Jerry's
Chevy's
Chili's
Denny's
Hooters
IHOP
Jack in the Box
Longhorn Steakhouse
Mimi's Cafe - free entree with $20 purchase
Rita's Italian Ice

Re: Birthday Deals

Ruby Tuesday, Moes, and Noodles and Co all give you one too (the nice thing is, they aren't limited to the day of your birthday).

Happy Birthday!

Re: Birthday Deals

Instead of re-inventing the wheel, for now at least; here's a great website with tons of deals and links.

Re: Birthday Deals

Going grocery shopping is a lot better then going out. You get to get food that will last you 3-6 months.

WOW!! This sounds great!

So, how does this work? Will the grocery store deliver my dinner, or will I have to go through the drive thru?

Think of it as the best buffet ever ... Just go in and start eating, then pay the cashier on the way out.

Re: Birthday Deals

Another freebie, not listed in the link Trevor posted, is for a free BD sub from Firehouse Subs.
Just sign up for their newsletter, and they'll e-mail you a coupon around your day.

Re: Birthday Deals

This year, I didn’t go out of my way to search for deals, but did get my annual free sub at Firehouse, a free small shake at Sonic, and a free Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish.

Re: Birthday Deals

Got a free 1 topping large pizza from CiCi's today. Had a choice of that or a free buffet but chose the pizza to take home and eat. Must have the app to use it though.

Steak N Shake sent me a coupon for a free specialty shake and another coupon for a free Original Double Steakburger with cheese and fries.

Krispy Kreme gives out a free doughnut and small coffee/beverage for your birthday when you sign up for emails.

Re: Birthday Deals

Annual bump to remind people to take advantage of these freebies.

So far today: free drink at Dunkin, free subs at Jersey Mike’s and Firehouse. Pending: free burger at Red Robin and burrito at Baja Fresh.

Some of these you’re supposed to sign up for their rewards program to qualify, but they always hook me up without that.

If you are in the Twin Cities, the Timberwolves have a birthday club that gets you two tickets in the upper deck in your birthday month, however, if you're like me and birthday is not in season, you won't get tickets til the following season. (Must join the club to get offer.)
