Birthday freebies?

Andria Aug 1, 2010 06:30 AM

Remember Mother Tuckers where you could have a free buffet on your birthday? What ever happened to those types of offers?

I know Tutti Frutti offers a free breakfast on your birthday (thank-you to them... I am heading out for breakfast now). Do any other places give freebies for the birthday person?

    IIRC, Ben & Jerry's used to give you a free ice cream on your birthday - not sure if they still do, but you could always call and ask...

      Peel Pub used to give a free pitcher of recycled beer in the 80s.

      Happy Birthday, Andria!

        There is a website called, if I am not mistaken, www.cestmafete.ca. You subscribe and they send you offers from different restaurants in the dates surrounding your birthday. I never took up on any of them because the restaurants did not interest me but you could check it out.

            if you have eaten at philinos they send a birthday discount deal every year

            pacini gives a discount equivalent to age on your birthday so when you reach 100 you get 100% off!

            The free breakfast at Tutti Frutti is still offered (at least at Atwater location) - you do have to have someone with you who orders a meal to get the free breakfast.

              When you sign up on starbucks and register your starbucks card online you get a free drink, any size any kind on your birthday.
