Free Birthday Stuff

Join the Baskin Robbins Birthday Club, and 5 days prior to your birthday you will receive an email containing your certificate to receive your FREE ice cream treat.
You can also drink for free on your birthday at a bunch of different bars in New York City. (Here are a few more places to drink for free on your birthday in NYC.) But it’s no secret that most clubs give free drinks on your birthday all across the country. Usually, all you have to do is ask!
Many restaurants typically offer the birthday person a free meal when an accompanying guest purchases their own meal. Heck, a 50% discount can make eating out at an upscale restaurant quite affordable these days! Watch for local fliers in the mail, or call around and inquire.
Some places offer a FREE dessert to top off your meal. Applebee’s gives you a free dessert on your birthday. I can tell you from personal experience that their desserts are enough for a meal, and they’re downright delicious! Their food is great too, so just remember to leave room after your meal to try their scrumptious desserts.
Of course, there are a lot of non-food things you can get for free on your birthday too. For example, Walt Disney World is offering FREE admission to a Disney theme park on your birthday. That could certainly make your Disney vacation a bit more affordable.
Better yet, if you sign up for a cruise to the Bahamas, you can sail for FREE on your birthday!
Does your birthday take place in a winter month? Well then you might enjoy skiing for FREE on your birthday. Psst… even if your birthday doesn’t take place in the winter, many ski resorts will still give you some sort of discount.
Lots of other family-friendly places provide FREE admission on your birthday, as well. For starters, zoos commonly do — like the Denver Zoo, the Phoenix Zoo, among others. If you ask at your local zoo, odds are they probably offer free admission on your birthday too!
Many local attractions (like miniature golf, go-karts, water parks, etc) will give you FREE admission on your birthday. For example, most local bowling alleys will provide a free game of bowling for the person who is celebrating a birthday.
Heck, there’s no point in being bashful… if there’s an activity that sounds interesting, just ask. Chances are good they’ll offer you something for FREE on your birthday. Lots of establishments quietly observe the birthday discount program, which means they only give away FREE things when they’re specifically requested.
In the end, the list of free things you can get on your birthday is pretty much endless. Usually, all you have to do is ask.
A Month Of Free Birthday Stuff
My mother has been famous for 2 things concerning her birthday. First, she is forever 29 (she upped it to 39 at age 60). Second, she celebrates her birthday for a full month every year! Which isn’t a bad idea, if you ask me.
Why not make the most of your annual right of passage and line up weeks of freebies, instead of just a day’s worth? Just remember to sign up for all these great offers way in advance of your birthday. That way, you’ll receive your free offer in time for your next month-long celebration!
In fact, you could probably spend the whole month of your birthday visiting one eatery after another — for FREE! Many companies extend their “birthday offer” to the entire month of your birthday, rather than just that day. For example, Benihana offers a $30 gift certificate that can be used any time during your birthday month.
Here are some more sites that will help you fill up your calendar with fun freebies on your birthday…
Here’s a fun Birthday Calculator!… See how many days until your next birthday and see how old you are in terms of total minutes, hours, and days.
I’ve been involved in RVing for 50 years now — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller, you’ve got a good idea of who I am.
