Birthday Freebies


I admit that I like celebrating my birthday.  It seems that many places like to give you free things for your birthday.  The nice thing is that the offers you receive are usually good for several days before and after the day itself.

I celebrated my birthday on Saturday.  About a week prior to the day I started getting offers.  Ruby Tuesday offered me a free burger.

If I want a free meal I could get one at Applebee’s or Houlihan’s.  We plan on using the Houlihan’s deal the day we come back from NYC.

What is a birthday without dessert?  I can get a free dessert at Garfield’s.  How about a free blizzard at Dairy Queen?  My personal favorite is the chocolate covered cherry blizzard.  If I want something a bit lighter there is always a free ice at Rita’s.

If I would rather shop than eat there are many stores that offer me birthday discounts.  Best Buy, Michael’s, and Staples are three of them.

I am sure that there are many more offers out there for people celebrating their birthday.  All you have to do is sign up on their website.

So, where did I go to eat on my birthday?  Shady Maple Smorgasbord.  A free meal and no coupon necessary.  Show proof that it is your birthday and your meal is free.

Yes, I do enjoy celebrating my birthday.  An added plus is that Thursday is Kathy’s birthday so the celebration s can continue.

  4. Happy Birthday to you and Kathy! This is the first time I hear about free offers on a birthday. In Estonia you just get a bit of discount in some places. Enjoy all the yummy offers.

  5. Happy Birthday to both! Keep celebrating…my sister always says August is her birthday MONTH. I have a bad habit of sending birthday cards late, so I always tell people I just wanted their birthday to last longer!

  6. Happy Birthday! You enjoyed all the celebrations that came your way – bravo!

  7. Wow! Just wow! I think I’ve been missing out. And a very happy birthday to both you and Kathy.

  8. Staples has a discount for your birthday!?! How did I not know this??? The only free birthday offer I know about is coffee at Starbucks. Clearly, I need to investigate a bit more. Happy Birthday and I hope you enjoyed your bounty!

  10. Happy birthday to both you and Kathy! You really know how to celebrate with all the freebies! Enjoy

  11. Nine years living in Central PA and I still haven’t been to Shady Maple. I’ve heard rave reviews of it! (Any chance they have gluten-free options.)
    Happy birthday to you and Kathy!

    • I honestly don’t know about gluten free, Stacey. I would think there might be some options, but I would call and ask them first. Eating there is really an experience. Thanks for the birthday wishes.

    Happy birthday to both of you!
