22 Places to Get FREE Food on Your Birthday

My birthday is coming up which is what inspired this post. I think a FREE birthday food restaurant crawl might be just what you need if you do not have a lot of money or friends at that special time of year. I am no advocate of eating your feelings but you could save money and get enough free meals and snacks to last you a week. Perhaps you could feed your family for a day by sharing your free birthday food.

Ihop– Free Rooty Tootie Fresh and Fruity Pancakes. *I can personally attest to this one being delivered. I have received several free Rooty Tooties on other occasions too.

Denny’s– Free Grand Slam

Krisy Kreme– Free Glazed Donut

Dunkin Donuts– Free Beverage when you joins DD Rewards Program

FireHouse Subs– Free Sub.

It’s really easy to redeem your free sub for the big day. Just visit any Firehouse Subs restaurant on your actual birthday and have I.D. in hand, and that sub is yours. Find a Firehouse near you.
