There are plenty of restaurants that give out freebies. The catch is it usually happens once a year and that day would be your birthday.
Below is a list of places that offer you free meals on your birthday. I think a couple of these places will require you to make one purchase but a bulk of these are free. It takes a minute of your time. I would definitely set up a different e-mail address when registering for your free meals so you aren’t hit with spam in your regular e-mail folders.
Plus for these places, you don’t have to use the coupon/voucher on the day of your birthday. There’s usually a window of around 7-14 days you can go in. Enjoy and Happy Birthday!
