Okay, so it’s finally your birthday, and besides all of the gifts you may get, you may be wondering what else you can score on your special day. No worries! We’ve got you covered.


Many restaurants and fast food places give away many of their food items for free if it's your birthday, and I'm not just talking about a free cookie from Subway (even though Subway cookies are spectacular). Here is a list of birthday freebies you can grab when it is your special day! And we won’t leave out any extra details. [*wink wink*]


Let’s start with snacks and meals! (stay tuned for the sweet treats!)

These pretzel places make sure to let you know that they think your birthday is just as special as you are! After downloading the app and becoming a member of My Pretzel Perks, you can get a free signature Auntie Anne’s pretzel. At Wetzel’s, you don’t have to do anything but pull up to get an original, flavored, or cheese pretzel for free on your birthday!



2. Buffalo Wild Wings/Hooters

In the mood for wings? B-Dubs and Hooters have got your back! Get a free snack-size basket of wings at Buffalo Wild Wings on your birthday, and 10 free boneless wings from Hooters. Pair it with some fries and a drink and you’re set!
