  1. Stacy says

    My birthday was just a couple of weeks ago, so I still have a lot of my coupons…

    Chili’s- Free brownie sundae with purchase of any entree

    McAlister’s Deli- $5 off

    O’Charley’s- $5 off $20

    Captain D’s- one of three meals free, or $5 off any other meal

    Sonic Drive-In- your choice of free creamslush, tator tots, or drink

    Applebee’s- Free dessert shooter

    • Connie Blouin says

      On the 3rd. had a wonderful time at the Applebee’s in Auburn Me. and was very pleased that though the coupon for a free meal was not from the Maine Restaurant they honored it anyways as they normally give free dessert. Not only that I got a free desert as well. What a wonderful experience and the staff need to know that we not only appreciated the service and but their joyfulness. Thanks also to the chef who cooked my husbands steak exactly the way he likes it,rare, for very few places we have been to know how to satisfy a steak eater. This pleasant experience will be passed on to everyone we talk to.

  2. Alaine says

    Bolocco will give you a free burrito if you have the bolocco card.
    Sephora insiders also get a gift on their birthday – it changes every year.
    Dunkin Donuts will also give you a free medium beverage!

  20. says

    Last year for my birthday, I received through my email a coupon for a free one-topping pizza at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. I don’t know if they are still doing it because my birthday is not until December, but all you have to do is sign up for the e-club. Their pizza is great! =)

  21. Britt says

    Might be worth checking into, but I know American Eagle used to give 20% off for your birthday. I think it’s a week before and up to a week after. I haven’t used it in a while, and I can’t remember if you have to sign up for anything.

    Also, this one isn’t for birthday’s, but if you sign up for the Aerie insider club you get a free gift any thursday once a month. I’ve gotten perfume, a makeup bag with brushes, a totebag, lotion and others. It’s a good thing to do, and you don’t have to buy a thing!

  22. Christina says

    I’m pretty sure that Logans Roadhouse will give you a coupon for a free desert on your birthday or to use around your birthday!

  23. Jackie Trouard says

    would love some freebies to be spoiled for my b-day week; going to be 58 on November 24th. Horrible to think about it will also be a semi-first anniversay of the death of my kid sister. She died on 11-15-10, which was Thanksgiving Day and this year it will be on the 24th.

  24. says

    World Market gives you $10 to spend during your birth month for being a rewards member and it’s free to sign up.

      ~ Heidi

  39. Jordana says

    I do hope most of these are either for the month or week of my birthday… the restaurants will totally lose out if you have to pick one or two to visit on your day! I’m going to have to join a gym to counter how many times I’ll be eating out in August!
    P.S. LOVE this site!!

  65. Karen says

    Rubio’s has cheaped out. It’s my birthday next week and they sent me a buy-one-get-one free burrito coupon rather than a coupon for a free meal, as they did in years past. What do I want with two burritos? None of my friends eat burritos and I don’t like reheated burritos.

  80. Cherry Shelton-White says

    The Big Texan in Amarillo, Texas offers either a small prime rib meal or chicken fried steak meal for free – but it has to be on your birthday.

  81. says

    Hey all! :)

    Looks like a lot of great birthday treats! Wish I would’ve seen this BEFORE my birthday! oops, always next year!

    anyways… Vera Bradley offers $20 off your purchase of $20 or more for your birthday. And The Loft gives you $15 off your purchase for your birthday too! Both are good for the whole month. :)
