Today marks that time of year when my age mysteriously goes up by another digit.

This year the number is 26 😂

That being said, I always try to take advantage of any freebies offered by restaurants in my area.

So far I have been able to collect:

- A free sub from Firehouse Subs

- A free sub from Jersey Mike's

- A free coffee from Caribou Coffee

- A free coffee from Dunkin

- A free treat from Panera Bread

- A free 12 oz frozen yogurt from Tutti Frutti

- A free burrito from Moe's

(I also normally get a free coffee from Starbucks but this year they didn't send me one. There is also a local Mexican restaurant that gives a free entrée on your birthday but this year I will be skipping that)

Most of these I don't have to use on my birthday but I did have to sign up ahead of time to receive most.


That being said, I am curious, anybody else take advantage of freebies to save some money on your special day? If so what are they? (whether local to your area or available nationwide)

Some restaurants give you some free desserts and stuff if you say it's your birthday. But if you'd like to get even more freebies, one trick I like to do is basically tell every hotel/restaurant/service industry thing I'm paying for that it's my anniversary.

Unlike birthdays where they can check, any couple can have an anniversary at any time and there's no documents that you need to show to prove it.

Though I feel like I ought to try out free Dunkin's coffee on my bday though.


I just learned that where I live (Minnesota), you get a free Beef 'N Cheddar sandwich from Arby's every time the local NBA team (Timberwolves) makes 12 three-pointers in a game. This happens a lot! All you need to do is show the Timberwolves' app at the restaurant. This promo has been going on the past two seasons.

Maybe there are similar promos for other teams across the U.S.

@Will S. I am right next door in North Dakota.

I do know in one of the nearby cities I have seen a billboard from Subway that any time their local sports team wins, you can mention the team name and get a Buy One Get One Free footlong.

There are lots of other great freebies out there for more than just on your birthday, I think I might write another post mentioning some other good ones.
