    I signed up for some offer, but some offers are not as above; 6. Cora’s -nothing received via email; 10. Harvey’s is a Buy a Burger get free fries or Frings ATM -no free burger; 25. South Street burger is BOGO; 24. I’m a long time member of the Red Lobster newsletter and did not receive a ‘special gift’ offer via email.

    Starbucks! Free food item or drink of your choice when you have their app/rewards program.

    Pretty sure David’s tea no longer gives you a free drink on your birthday. I remember getting an email about this a couple years back from them and I didn’t get anything for my last birthday.

  7. Gravatar for Ashley Keyes

    Addition Elle is out of business (but I think parent company Reitmans does give a discount for your birthday if you subscribe to their newsletter).

    Payless is also out of business.

    Giant Tiger vip email club. Free pie, or coffee or chocolate almonds or raisins on your bday. One of the best bday items I’ve found

  9. Gravatar for C

    As of January 2023 Denny’s has discontinued free bday grand slam 😔

    • Gravatar for Enoch Omololu, MSc (Econ)

      @C: Thanks for pointing that out. We will update it.

      No no. My birthday was 3 weeks ago and I got a free breakfast! I went to Courtney Park location.
