Denny's restaurants have been giving away free Grand Slam breakfast meals on guests' birthdays for decades! The best part? No sign-up! Just show up, say it's your birthday, present valid identification proving it's your big day, and bam! Free eggs, bacon, sausage, and pancakes.
At IHOP, get the Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity pancakes stack for free when you sign up for their online membership, and similarly, if you sign up to Perkins' eClub, when your birthday rolls around you'll get a Magnificent Seven Breakfast: eggs, bacon strips or sausages, and three buttermilk pancakes.
Black Angus steakhouses offer a free steak dinner AND a free dessert when you sign up for their Prime Club. The only catch is that you have to order a second entree to be eligible for the steak dinner, but as long as you're celebrating with at least one other person, you should be good!
Sonny's BBQ offers a free Big Deal Combo for members of the 'Q Crew.
Benihana will send you a $30 gift certificate for signing up to their Chef's Table - but watch the conditions before you go in to redeem. The deal only applies Monday - Thursday during dinner hours, and requires you to order a second adult entree.
Red Robin restaurants also famously offer a free birthday burger to their Red Robin Royalty members. No coupon required! The reward is automatically loaded onto your card and is redeemable all month long!
Get a free medium sub at Firehouse subs when you join Firehouse Rewards. It's valid on your actual birthday, as well as for the six days that follow.
If you join the A&W Mug Club in advance, you get a free root beer float on your birthday.
At Auntie Anne's, joining their VIP club (Very Important Pretzel-Lover) gets you a free birthday pretzel for the entirety of your birthday month.
Last but not least, the Birthday Club at Baskin Robbins sends you a coupon for a free 2.5-ounce scoop (and $3.00 off an ice cream cake!).
Just remember, wherever you decide to celebrate, it's your birthday so calories don't count!
