Let’s Face it, getting older is rough and the glorification of “adulting” makes you long for the days of no responsibility and no worries. But who says you shouldn’t be excited about saving some moolah and being treated like the rock star you are…or ummm, are still working to become! Especially when you’ve added some extra life miles on that magnificent body of yours.
Here’s a list of the top 10 free meals/drinks to gorge on for your Birthday:
Au Bon Pain: Free Birthday lunch with eclub membership
Firehouse Subs: Free medium sub with rewards club
GiGi’s Cupcakes: Free cupcake
IHOP: Free meal
Jamba Juice: Free smoothie or juice with membership program
Moe’s Southwest Grill: Free burrito with eWorld signup
Red Robin: Free burger with Red Robin Royalty Program
Starbucks: Free Birthday drink with rewards program
Subway: Free Birthday lunch with membership club
Olive Garden: Free Birthday dessert
Loyalty programs and Birthday specials can provide some great deals, especially when you take advantage of them instead of leaving them at home like I do with all my coupons. With access to rewards programs, apps, and online social media marketing, it’s becoming easier for businesses to connect with customers on a personal level. Realizing that a majority of adults and families dine out on their special day AND usually have multiple friends or family members that dine and drink with them, I think it’s safe to say that this is a mutually beneficial situation. Well, at least for the birthday star. Like 50 Cent would say, “Go shawty, It’s your Birthday“.
There you have it. A big birthday box full of freebie marketing campaigns to take advantage of. Will you be taking advantage of any of these? Do you think these are effective?
