101 Restaurants that Give Free Birthday Meals

Birthday’s are the best! It’s the one day a year that restaurants want to make you feel special by giving you a ton of free birthday meals (or almost free) just for being born.

You can easily eat free the entire day with all the offers that are available. Some restaurants even give you an extra week, month, or even a year to claim your offer.

All you need to do is sign up for their email list, which I included below for easy sign-up. They should email you your birthday offer at least a  week or two before your birthday. Some of these restaurants get email happy, so I would recommend creating a new email address before you start signing up to avoid these emails clogging up your personal account.

Cupcakes with text overlay 100+ places to get free food on your birthday

Make sure to sign-up at least a couple of weeks before your birthday so you won’t miss out on any offers.

Take a look at the list I’ve put together and be sure to take advantage of all the free (or almost free) birthday meals and treats you can get! I know I will!

*Offers do vary by location and may change at any time so please make sure to call ahead and confirm the deal is valid.
