QUICK NOTE: I’ve noticed that many of these offers not only send you a free coupon on your birthday, but will also send you a coupon the very day you sign up for the club AND at every one year anniversary of you signing up. Throw in all the free coupons they send at your birthday and you can get multiple meals a year for free :)

Many of these birthday freebies and coupons are via e-mail, so be sure to sign up in advance. In fact, for that reason alone, I strongly suggest creating a new gmail account for these birthday freebies. Signing up for these offers requires you to join most company’s newsletters. I have joined almost every offer below (for science!) and simply log into the gmail account on the first day of my birthday month and check out all the free offers that have rolled in.

And remember, all deals are subject to location participation. So if you’re standing in the middle of Arby’s screaming for a free milkshake and they aren’t budging, don’t blame me!
