Where to Get Free Stuff on Your Birthday

If “free” is your favorite number, make sure you sign up with these businesses for a birthday treat.

1. Waffle House®

Quit waffling around! Free birthday stuff is serious business. Waffle House agrees, which is why they’ve typically given out a special birthday coupon for a free waffle to members of the Waffle House Regulars Club. Bonus: you’ll get a free order of hashbrowns just for signing up!

2. IHOP®

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!

3. Famous Footwear®

Welcome your birthday in style! Famous Footwear gives their Rewards Members $5 birthday cash, plus two times the points per dollar on all purchases made during your birthday month.

5. Old Navy®

When you sign up for Old Navy emails, you can also opt to join the Old Navy Birthday Club. Check your email inbox during your birthday month and you’ll receive a gift.

6. Denny’s®
