Birthday Freebies and Coupons

I've signed up for quite a few restaurant e-mail clubs in hopes of receiving coupons, and a lot of those e-mail clubs send you some sort of offer for your birthday. Even though there's no way I could use all of them (all but one expire at the end of the month or sooner), it's nice to have the option to get free or discounted food at these restaurants. Is it worth it to sign up for these clubs? In some cases, no, not really. Take a look at the birthday offers I've received this month and decide for yourself (these may change from year to year). 

Free food with no minimum purchase
  • IHOP - Free Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity, or menu item of equal or lesser value
  • Panera - Free pastry or sweet
  • Cold Stone - Free "Like it" size ice cream with one mix-in (They're in the process of changing their e-mail club, so you can't sign up now.)
  • Fazoli's - Free dessert
  • Ruby Tuesday - Free handcrafted burger of your choice
  • Benihana - Certificate for $30
  • Bob EvansFree dessert ($3.59 value or less)
Free food with purchase
Coupon for certain amount off
Grocery Coupon

These are just nearby restaurants I like, so be sure to check the websites of your favorite restaurants for an e-mail club and check out Money Saving Mom's list of birthday freebies. A lot of these restaurants send offers periodically throughout the year, not just for your birthday. And of course, many restaurants will give you free dessert on your birthday without a coupon.

Happy eating!
