Eat Free on Your Birthday
Here’s a mega list of restaurants for people who want to receive eat free on your birthday freebies, deals, promotions, and/or coupons. Most of these restaurants ask you to provide your birth date to verify that you’re over 18, and of course to send you a birthday deal!
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 subscriber.
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.
