It's Your Birthday, Eat for FREE if ya wanna!

Over and Over and Over again.  Really, you should be able to eat for free for the full 2 weeks surrounding your birthday, possibly even more if you wait till about a week before your birthday to start signing up for these programs.  But, why wait, when you can spread the free eating out throughout the year!

There are many more restaurants than these that offer various deals for your birthday, my suggestion is if you have a favorite restaurant in your area look to see if they have a website/ email program and if they do, sign up for it.  Many programs offer more than just free food for your birthday, usually it's something free when you sign up, then something free for your birthday/ anniversary, as well as special promos throughout the year.  These are the ones I know we have locally; I know, because I've signed up and gotten the deals.  As far as I could tell, all the below have no additional purchase required, I'm thinking you could just take all your deals and make a hometown tour of your favorite restaurants and eat for free all day. 

  • Pauli's Bistro - this is a local place (corner of 72/Jeff Rd in Madison).  It's a little on the spendy side but great for special occasions and the best part is that by signing up for their email newsletter you will get all kinds of great deals.  This year on our anniversary they sent us a certificate for a free desert sampler (think 5 full size deserts - that was no sampler).  For birthdays they send you a $25 coupon off dinner for 2 ($50 if your party has at least 4 people).  And twice in the last year they have sent out offers where you could purchase discount gift certificates - and by discount, I mean 50% off.  We buy the discount certificates then combine them with the birthday/anniversary offers, as well as try to go on a Monday for 1/2 bottle of wine night.

  • Ruby Tuesday - get a free burger for your birthday (click the "so connected" icon at the top of the page to sign up for the mailing list 

  • IHOP - free breakfast (or menu item of equal or lesser value)

  • Famous Dave's BBQ - (we don't have one in Huntsville, but it is a nationwide chain) - free $10 entree

  • Captain Ds - free 2 piece fish dinner

  • Sonic Drive-in - choice of free cream slush, medium drink or tater tots

    What's a Birthday without free desert?.....

  • Maggie Moos - free kids cone

  • Ben & Jerry's - What's a birthday without ice cream?  B&Js Scoop Shops will give you a free scoop PLUS $3 off a cake.

  • Cold Stone Creamery - Like it Creation (ice cream + 1 mix-in)

  • Cantina Laredo - Free Mexican Brownie

  • CHILI's - Free brownie sundae

  • Macaroni Grill  - They will send you a $5 coupon when you sign up, and a coupon for a free piece of cake on your birthday.

    ---- I'm sure there are more and I will update this post as I confirm them.
