Have you ever wondered where you could eat for free on your birthday and grab other free birthday offers in Boston, Massachusetts, and beyond?
Well this past weekend was my birthday and I received a lot of lovely e-mails on my big day and the weeks leading up from various restaurants and companies. Last year around this time I also shared all the birthday offers I received in my inbox from local and national companies; however, I wanted to update and reorganize the post, since I received a few more birthday offers this year!
Some of the birthday offers take a little bit of planning since you need to subscribe to a birthday club or e-mail list. Below are all the birthday freebies I received for my birthday. The last two sections (Free Birthday Dinners & Even More Free Birthday Stuff) I did not receive, but I wanted to include them since they are awesome free birthday gifts too!

Free Birthday Dinner (Just Show Up)
As you probably noticed, you need to be a member of a birthday list or e-mail list to get many birthday offers, which may take a little planning. If you’d rather just show up on the day of your birth for a free perk, this section is for you. Just make sure you bring a friend to buy an entrée for themselves.
Bisuteki Tokyo, Cambridge: Free dinner entrée with photo ID on your (exact) birthday
Abington Ale House, Abington (South Shore): Free dinner entrée with photo ID on your (exact) birthday
Charlie Horse, West Bridgewater (South Shore): Free dinner entrée with photo ID on your (exact) birthday
Vin & Eddies, Abington (South Shore): Eat free on your birthday with at least one other person
Update 2/25: @Lingdandelion shared on twitter that she filled out the form and went to a participating dealer on the list but they said they didn’t participate. If you decide to try this promotion, you may want to call your local dealership first. Thanks.
Test drive a new Jeep at a participating Jeep retailer before February 28, 2014 and receive two free lift passes to Okemo Mountain in Ludlow, Vermont! You do need to fill out a form beforehand to receive the complimentary lift tickets.
It also looks the promotion is on a while-supplies-last basis, so you may want to ask the dealership if they are participating/still have tickets beforehand.
The free lift tickets expire at the end of the 2015 ski season, so you have some time to use them if you are sick of snow this year!
