How to Get Free Food for Your Birthday

What's better than celebrating your birthday with a free meal from your favorite restaurant?  How about eating many free meals for a few weeks before and after your birthday?  Many restaurants will literally give you food on and around your birthday - in many cases, with no other purchase necessary!  And the only thing you have to do to get these free offers is register for the email newsletter of the restaurants of your choosing.

  • Step 1 - Sign up for email lists of your favorite restaurants (listed below)
  • Step 2 - Receive free coupons emailed to you shortly before your birthday
  • Step 3 - Print out coupons and bring to restaurant
  • Step 4 - Get free food

It's as simple as that!

Get a free meal from Benihana for your birthday!

I have signed up for the email list of every restaurant chain I could think of and I was shocked to learn just how easy it is to eat for free at many of these restaurants.  Most of the coupons have your name printed on them and require you to show your license or other ID to redeem.  So, don't think you'll be able to go back to the same restaurant week after week cashing in birthday coupons for free meals!

Here is a list of all the restaurant birthday offers I could find.  To get your free coupons, just sign up for the email lists and make sure to give your real name and birthday.  Enjoy and good luck!
