Do you want to eat free on your birthday?
Here’s a comprehensive list of restaurants for people who want to receive eat free on your birthday deals. All of these restaurants ask for you to provide your birth date–mostly because they have to verify that their subscribers are over 18.
In addition, some restaurants will also send you a coupon for a free meal just for signing up for the restaurant’s “Club,” and on your one year anniversary of being a member of the restaurant’s Club.
Where the restaurant’s name is highlighted, you can click through to their sign up page. This list is very thorough but you may know of other restaurants that have a free birthday meal policy that isn’t included on this list. Feel free to leave a comment and I’ll add it here. Have fun with this list!
