Try saying the Taco Bueno birthday freebie “cheesecake chimichangas” ten times fast. No, seriously, it's fun and will hopefully make you overlook the fact that I didn't include a joke here.

I'm not sure which I want more. The actual LongHorn Steakhouse birthday freebie of a free dessert, like that caramel apple gold rush. Or that freaking steak filet!

This is how I picture the Black Bear Diner birthday freebie.

Goob enters diner and sits at nearby table as the server approaches.
Server: What can I get you today?
Goob: I'll have waffles and coffee. Oh, it's my birthday too!
Server: *eyes narrow* …is that so?
Server snaps his fingers three times then walks away briskly.
Goob: Uh…
The entire diner empties in a panic as Goob remains seated, dumbfounded.
Goob: So, am I gonna get my food?
The front door explodes into a shower of glass as a black bear enters.
Bear: RWAAAAAAAR!
Goob: AHHHHHHHH!

Unfortunately, it's just a silly dessert. Scratch that, since originally publishing this freebie in 2011, they've upgraded the birthday offer to a full free breakfast meal!

I'm in one of those moods when my first reaction to this Beef ‘O' Brady's birthday freebie is “man, they have way too many apostrophes in their name.”


Free Stella Artois Chalice

In order to get this free Stella Artois chalice, first you need to promise never to call it a glass. Because apparently it's not a glass, despite being made out of glass and looking like a glass.

But fine, whatever, I just want another container for my beer. If you do as well, then get ready to sit through a painfully silly and long video shot narrated by a French computer (don’t ask) before you find out if they still have any chalice’s available. If you go through the process and are informed that you don’t qualify for a freebie, kindly let your fellow Hiffers know in the comments below.

Oh, the offer is void in TX. *shrugs*

I seriously should have reconsidered posting this Mimi's Cafe birthday freebie tonight. All it did was remind me that I have zero prospects for dinner and HOLY MOLY I WANT THAT BIRTHDAY CAKE RIGHT THIS SECOND.

You know the la Madeleine birthday freebie is fancy since they put an unnecessary E at the end of “soup” and “salad.” I tried doing the same by originally naming this site Hey, It's Freee! but it never caught on.

I was really hoping the Medieval Times birthday freebie would be for one free jousting lesson. At the very least they should offer you the chance to be a court jester for the evening.

I've had a few companies contact me and ask that I remind Hiffers not to print the image above. In order to get your very own coupon, follow the link above, sign up, and they'll email you one near your birthday.


Goob has hair again

So About That Cancer…

This awesome news was originally posted on November 24, 2011

Yep, that's a month of hair and a week of beard growth. And the eyebrows are back! I'm thankful for two out of those three.

I'm a private guy by nature. Heck, my sense of humor is a textbook case of having developed as a shielding mechanism. But it feels silly now that I ever debated keeping quiet on my health situation.

I was already in the middle of treatment when I wrote that post. I remember hitting publish then flopping over onto the bed for a smooth 10 hour nap. The next time I loaded HIF, the comment count had skyrocketed into the hundreds and I was shocked. I actually didn't read them. I didn't even look at them. I was terrified there'd be a heavy dose of negativity (I mean, we're talking about anonymous Internet comments here!) and I was already having enough trouble smiling.

The worst period of all occurred a week later when a perfect storm of side effects culminated. For three straight days, my dog and I lied in bed staring at one another, trying to will the other into venturing out to find food. I finally mustered the energy to get out of bed, but the kitchen felt light years away, so I sat down in front of my computer and loaded the comments.

You punks had me crying within minutes.

And that was it. That was the lowest I ever got and everything from there was an improvement. It sounds corny, but knowing I had thousands of complete strangers out there rooting for me was encouraging in a way I'd never thought possible.

Suddenly I wasn't fighting this damn thing alone! I knew my family and friends had my back, but I never expected in a million years that people I'd never met would care as well. Every corner of the globe seemed to have a vested interest in vanquishing my tumors. I got emails from Canada, India, Ireland, Australia, Japan, and countless others. HIF doesn't even post freebies for those countries!

I wasn't able to reply to everyone individually, but I read and appreciated each and every comment and email.

And I'm thrilled to say that I'm now officially in remission.

I've said it before and I'm sure I'll say it again, but thank you. Y'all were phenomenal to me throughout this and knowing that I didn't have to post freebies every day was a giant load off my back for a few months. So, again, thank you for the kind words and thoughts and prayers and love and every ounce of goodwill channeled in my direction! It made a huge difference and I'll never forget it.

Now go find some turkey, enjoy the day with family and friends, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!


I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but thanks for all the warm wishes over the past few days. I took a break from working over the holiday, but my phone kept blowing up with comment notifications on Thanksgiving. Not only did they put me in a extra good mood, but they kept extended family from constantly asking “so when are you going to stop playing on the computer and get a ‘real' job?” Seriously, trying to explain how a website works to somebody who still thinks email technology is on par with time travel is never fun. So thank you!


Free Game of Bowling

Brunswick Bowling Birthday Freebie

As of January 2020, all Brunswick Zone centers have been rebranded to either Bowlero or AMF properties. Brunswick Bowling's old school birthday offer was two free games of bowling, but I've yet to confirm if these offers have carried over with the new brands.

I've always loved bowling. Especially the part where I scored a strike in the lane next to mine. Then I fruitlessly argue I deserve 50 bonus points for pulling off the feat, but my “friends” never have any part of it.
