21 Birthday Restaurant Freebies + 2 Other Birthday Offers

My son and I just got done celebrating our birthday’s which are two days apart.  One of the things that we have fun doing each is year is enjoying our free birthday food together.  Believe it or not, lots of restaurants offer free food- sometimes an entire meal!- for your birthday.  All you have to do is sign up for the offer.

Here’s a list of 23 birthday freebies- two of which actually aren’t food.  Sign up and enjoy some free yumminess on your next birthday.  Just don’t blame me if you gain some weight in doing so!  :)


  • Baskin Robbins- Sign up for the Birthday Club and you’ll get a coupon for a free scoop of ice cream for your birthday.
  • Burger King- Your child can receive a free kid’s meal on their birthday when you sign them up for Club BK.
  • California Pizza Kitchen- Sign your child up for CPKids and they can enjoy a free kids meal.
  • Dunkin’ Donuts- If you have a Dunkin’ Donuts gift card, you can register it for the DD Perks Rewards and among other things, you’ll get a free medium beverage of your choice for your birthday.
  • Krispy Kreme- If you live near a Krispy Kreme you may be able to get a dozen free doughnuts on your birthday! Simply call your local store ahead of time to see if they participate. (I’ve never tried this one since we don’t have a location near us, but I’m told many Krispy Kreme’s do offer this yummy treat!)
  • Maggie Moo’s- Join the Email Club and you’ll get a coupon for a free Kid’s sized ice cream creation.

  • Spaghetti Warehouse- Join the Warehouse Club and get a free meal on your birthday.
  • Starbucks- Have a Starbucks gift card? Register it here and one of the perks you’ll get is a coupon for a free Starbucks’ birthday drink. It might be worth getting a $5 gift card and registering it just for this!

  • Swagbucks- Join Swagbucks and you’ll get 50 Swagbucks on your birthday! I didn’t post this one earlier because I can’t figure out where I added my birthday to get this. Anyone know?
  • Toys R Us- Sign your child up for the Toys ‘R Us Birthday Club (click “Birthday Club” at the top of the page) and they’ll receive a free gift (rumored to be a $3 Toys ‘R Us gift card) on their birthday.
