Free Birthday Meals – How Birthdays Should Celebrated

Recent economic downturns remind us to be frugal and save more money for our retirement. Gone are those days for lavish birthday celebrations especially when you can celebrate freewheeling style. Do you know how many free birthday meals will be available for you this year?

Meal Options

For breakfast, you can go to Denny’s which gives celebrators a free breakfast meal such as the Breakfast Slam. You just need to be there physically and present a valid ID such as a driver’s license. For lunch, you may eat your favorite submarine sandwich at Firehouse Subs for free. Again, a valid ID is required. For dinner, Moe’s Southwestern Grill would be perfect. It offers a free entrée by presenting the coupon available for printing out from their website. You may access the coupon after subscribing to its email list. You may eat at any Moe’s branch on your birthday to get your free entrée or even up to a week after it.

Further, there are other free birthday meals provider such as Ruby Tuesday’s, Golden Corral, IHOP, Benihana and Steak ‘N Shake. All of these establishments offer free coupons or gift certificates that you may use two or even three weeks after your birthday (for Benihana). The only requirement is to sign up and join their email lists.

There are establishments that do not provide free birthday meals. It will be important for you to find out if your chosen restaurant has a birthday program. If it does not, you will have to weigh where you really want to eat versus the advantage to getting something for free. In addition, thinking about the guests celebrating with you is something to consider.

Other Restaurants

If all of these don’t interest you, you may find other free birthday meals online. Check the regular website of your chosen restaurant to see if they have birthday freebies. In addition, if the site requires printing out a coupon, make sure to call the nearest branch where you plan to obtain your free birthday meals to know if it honors coupons or not.

Further, not all free birthday meals are worth pursuing. For example, there are food establishments that offer a free ice cream after purchasing a full meal. Even if the restaurant will give a free full meal to you but the location is too far from your place, it might not be worth it especially if you have many guests. This is not the right way to save money on your birthday. It may result in spending more than what you could have saved if you opt for a free breakfast at a local restaurant, for instance.

Searching for free birthday meals online is enjoyable in itself. You will be surprised to know what treats are in store for you. Actually, you may spend the whole day eating free treats from your favorite restaurants, food chains and snack shops. The best part is you need not spend on these meals. Perhaps a little help from these stores will help you in celebrating your birthday in a fun way.
