Get free and discount food year round. When you register for birthday freebies many restaurants, restaurant groups and chains will send you offers for free and discounted food throughout the year.
I get emails regularly from the many restaurants and honestly there are so many I can’t always use them. If you’re concerned about clogging up your email you may want to set up a secondary email account and check it regularly.
Covid alert 5/14/2020: Since most restaurants barely survived last year I wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve suspended or canceled these deals. Many restaurants are closed either temporarily or permanently so call your location first and make sure it’s still there before heading out. Happy dining!
