Ultimate Guide To Birthday Freebies

by Patrick Tasner
Ultimate List to Birthday Freebies

As I approach middle age, birthday don’t have the same meaning so much anymore. As a kid it meant eating cake and a partying until we couldn’t stand up. As a young man it meant drinking booze and partying until we couldn’t stand up. But one thing that binds all birthdays between those points together has always been the birthday freebie.

These days they’re the best thing about having a birthday. Now that I have pesky things like bills and responsibilities the idea of having someone give me something I want — usually food — simply for being born is a unique thing in my life and really brings back many of the best memories from my childhood.

It is for this reason, among others, that it is time for a 2020 round-up of birthday freebies. Most of these can be had by simply walking in and showing an ID of some sort. To make it more fun I suggest yelling loudly and firmly, “It’s my birthday!” just in case there are any random freebies sneaking around somewhere.

For some of these plans need to be made ahead, so it never hurts to hint to a spouse, sibling, office fling, or another loved one that you’d like to go to one of the below on your birthday. Or, if you’re like me and have no shame, you can just do it yourself. Some might say that I’m no fun but I won’t be able to hear them over my free pancakes, so it doesn’t matter.

This list is by no means exhaustive, but it’s a big one. We’ve combed the web to make sure that at least some of these will be available to you no matter where you live. So keep scrolling, make a list of your own, and consider this our birthday gift to you. Just don’t call us cheap.
