It’s been a while since we’ve updated our birthday freebies round-ups, so we’ve dug through the archives to pull together an updated list of freebies that you can get on your actual birthday or the week or month of your special day. Over the next few days, we’ll be sharing these lists with you.
Today’s birthday freebies list includes recreation and restaurant deals. Wherever possible, we’ve listed the exact offer you’ll receive. If no specific deal is listed, that means that the website advertises a birthday offer but we’re not sure exactly what that is.
Please note: With many of these offers, you’ll be required to bring in a coupon (plus show your ID to prove your birthdate) to get the deal. We’ve included links to sign up for the specific email newsletters so that you’ll receive the coupon in time for your birthday.
Please leave a comment if you know of any other recreation and restaurant birthday freebies or if you know specifically what these locations offer. Thanks!
