Birthday Freebies

Birthday freebies generally require signing up to a chain's respective mobile app or email list. The sister-in-law goes all crazy signing up for these lists and gets all sorts of free food around her birthday. They usually send you information on new items, promos, and coupons as well. I suggest just creating an email specifically to sign up so you don't get inundated with promo emails.

As to why companies would give your free stuff for your birthday, it's for a number of reasons, including: it builds good will (i.e. you might come back); if it's your birthday, you'll usually come with other guests; and you might order other items while you're there.

Keep in mind that a company may change its birthday offer at any time.
