Birthday Freebies

Shoney’s Birthday Freebie

Shoney's birthday freebie

While researching Shoney’s birthday freebie, I found myself completing their wikipedia entry and thinking “hot damn, this is a boring company.” Luckily their offer of free dessert is all the excitement I need.

No, wait, that’s just a sugar rush. Close enough!

Signup Freebie: Free appetizer
Birthday Freebie: Free dessert with adult buffet or entree

See that link in the sidebar that says Birthday Freebies? I bet it has a few more offers like these :)

Olive Garden Birthday Freebie

Olive Garden Birthday Freebie

Signup Freebie: Nwonknu
Birthday Freebie: Free appetizer or dessert with purchase of 2 adult entrees.

Truth be told, the Olive Garden birthday freebie isn’t spectacular, but it’s noteworthy to me for a few reasons:

  1. It’s one of the longest unconfirmed entries from the birthday freebies list. Not any more though!
  2. They do something that I haven’t noticed many other restaurants offering – automatically extending the expiration date based on when you open the email.

That last part is worth expanding on. The initial email I received had an expiry date of July 17. However I was on vacation when it arrived in my inbox and didn’t actually open the email until today. When I clicked to print the coupon, the expiry date had been updated to Aug. 3.

That’s a neat perk that many restaurants don’t offer for their birthday freebies. Let’s hope this is the start to a new trend!

Bojangles’ Birthday Freebie

I know a Bojangles’ birthday freebie may not be the classiest of celebrations, but we’ve all had that Sunday morning, hungover and barely functional birthday before, right?

Last Updated: 06-19-2015

I was happy to discover a few new restaurants offering free food on your special day while recently going through the birthday freebies list! Though somebody needs to make sure the people behind the Smashburger birthday freebie weren’t being 100% literal when they said the shakes are “hand-spun.”

Signup Freebie: $2 off a $5 purchase.
Birthday Freebie: Free shake with entree purchase

If anybody gets a signup freebie or offer, please leave a comment sharing what it is!

Captain D’s Birthday Freebie

Captain D’s Birthday Freebie

Updated on 06-17-2015

Who would win in a fight: Captain D or Captain Goob? I don’t know what he’s rockin’ these days, but the USS HIF was recently outfitted with two brand new, state of the art water cannons. They might not scare most sailors, but they strike fear into the heart of my neighbors. Nobody in a three block radius even bothers checking their mail for freebies anymore. They know whose territory they’re on!

Too bad I don’t have anything as cool as Captain D’s birthday freebies.

Signup Freebie: Free 2 piece fish & fries or chicken & fries.
Birthday Freebie: Your choice of a 2 piece fish, 12 pc. butterfly shrimp, or grilled tilapia dinner.

Sbarro Birthday Freebie

Updated on 06-16-2015

Finding a new item for our massively popular free birthday food list always brings a smile to my face. It’s rare these days, but it still happens. Case in point: this Sbarro birthday freebie. Sure, it’s not the best freebie in the world since we have to buy a drink, but at the end of the day it’s free pizza.

Free. Pizza!

How could we ever be disappointed with an offer as glorious as FREE PIZZA?!

Signup Freebie: Free slice of pizza with a drink purchase.
Birthday Freebie: Free slice of pizza with a drink purchase. (proof)

Panera Bread Birthday Freebie

I love how the Panera Bread birthday freebie 1) offers the ability to “snack it forward” (™ pending) to a friend while 2) at the same time knowing tons of people would need clarification on “giving away” their dessert.

Signup Freebie: Commenters are reporting it’s also a free pastry.
Birthday Freebie: Free birthday pastry.

As always I’ve updated this offer on the birthday freebies list.

Auntie Anne’s Birthday Freebie

Auntie Anne's Birthday Freebie

Updated on 06-10-2015

Auntie Anne’s birthday freebie calls me a pretzel lover, which is overstating things a little. Yet it goes on to say “birthday cake, shmirthday cake.” DID THEY JUST DIS BIRTHDAY CAKE?! Pretzels are barely more than fancy stale bread while birthday cake is the physical manifestation of a magical fairyland populated by rainbows, unicorns, and Lady Rainicorns.

It’s worth noting Auntie Anne’s free birthday pretzel will be via their mobile app starting July 2015. Apple ios users can go here while Android users can grab it there. To sweeten the offer, it seems they’ve also removed the BOGO requirement!

Signup Freebie: Free sugar pretzel with purchase of any other item.
Birthday Freebie: Free pretzel! (woo hoo, no more BOGO!)

Uno Pizzeria Birthday Freebie

It’s should be painfully clear that we’re in the midst of a freebie drought. I don’t know which Hiffer pissed off the Freebie Gods but I’m looking at you, Jerry! It’s kind of hard running a freebie site that focuses on quality freebies when there aren’t any quality freebies around. Shocker.

I only bring this up to let new readers know this is normal. It sucks, but it happens for a few weeks at least once or twice a year (like my dating life). I have no hard evidence to prove this, but my gut tells me the drought will end next week. I can feel it in my bones as nobody says. In fact it might be the Sample Source freebie pack that gets the ball rolling.

But until the freebies return, I’ll post the next best things: birthday freebies.

Uno Pizzeria Birthday Freebie

One of the newest members to the club is the Uno Pizzeria birthday freebie. What made for the sudden change in heart? I’m gonna go with … wizard squirrels? No, wait, 17! I never was good at tests…

Signup Freebie: A “free welcome gift” is promised. I’m not sure what the current offer is.
Birthday Freebie: Free entree.

Earl of Sandwich Birthday Freebie

Free Earl of Sandwich Birthday Food

The Earl of Sandwich birthday freebie is one of those rare, exquisite freebies that makes me smile like an idiot days before it ever arrives. For when the inevitable zombie apocalypse strikes, I now know what I’ll go by once I rebuild society.

Goob, Earl of Sandwich, Duke of Pizza, Count of Unlimited Cookies, Protector of the Realm.

Signup Freebie: Free brownie
Birthday Freebie: Free sandwich, salad, or wrap
