Start your year off right with a revolution — a pancake revolution, that is. Get free IHOP pancakes for your birthday when you join MyHOP. You’ll get free pancakes when you sign up, another free order of pancakes on your birthday, and more pancakes on every anniversary of joining. Talk about pancake perks!
