Restaurants Offering Birthday Freebies


Container of Baskin-Robbins ice Cream, a birthday freebie.

One of the kings of the ice cream world, Baskin-Robbins, offers a huge range of frozen treats, from the hottest (or coolest) flavors of ice cream to incredible cakes. You can get a free scoop of any ice cream flavor as well as a coupon for $3 off an ice cream cake on your birthday simply by being a member of the Baskin-Robbins Birthday Club.

Don’t worry! Kids of all ages (including the ice cream loving adult kid in all of us) can sign up for this simple membership. 😉

Dairy Queen

While Dairy Queen offers a great range of delicious food, from burgers to ice cream, the blizzard is one Dairy Queen product people just can’t get enough of. You can enjoy a free 16oz DQ blizzard to celebrate your birthday with a special buy one, get one deal for all Blizzard Fan Club members. You also get another buy one, get one coupon just for signing up, so be sure to take advantage of this offer on the first hot day of the year!

Yes, I realize that technically this isn’t a birthday freebie since you have to buy a blizzard to get one free, but maybe your sweetie or BFF will take you and buy a blizzard for themselves so you can get the free one. 😉
