Just for being born (and knowing how to type) I recently enjoyed a free sub from FireHouse Subs. Did you know many of your favorite restaurants give you free meals for your birthday? My pal Cherise told me to check the websites of my favorite spots and enter in the birth dates of my family members. I only did a few, but I am glad I did.
You also may get additional benefits by doing this because sometimes multiple restaurants are owned by the same company. For example, I like The Olive Garden and Cherise gave me a $5 off coupon to it. She had gone online to register at Red Lobster and that company also is connected to The Olive Garden. Hence the coupon she got and gave to me.
They also have this for kids places like Chuck E. Cheese’s. I hate to go there, but my kids love it so a coupon makes it all the better. The coupons they send you are often better than the ones you get out of the paper, so it’s worth doing.
Some retail locations do it too. So next time you are cruising around online, take a look. Maybe some of your favorite places will be sending you free stuff or discounts.
Here are some birthday benefits I pulled from a couple of different lists I found online. I hope it is fairly accurate.
