Free Birthday Meals and Deals in Massachusetts & More!

Birthday Freebies Boston

I’ve updated the post for 2016 Birthday Deals and Freebies, and you can find 2016 Birthday Freebies here!

There’s a lot of great birthday offers and freebies in Boston, Massachusetts and more for just being born!

Every February I receive a lot of wonderful e-mails that include free birthday meals, desserts, appetizers and other great offers for my birthday and I love rounding them up and seeing what I get!

The first three categories below are everything I received for my birthday this year (most to my e-mail inbox) from various restaurants and retailers for being a customer and/or joining their e-mail club.

(You can see the Birthday offers I received in 2014 and 2013, and I removed some offers off this list because I didn’t receive them this year or maybe I removed myself off their e-mail list).

The last two categories I haven’t personally taken advantage of necessarily because you either need to eat at the restaurant on your birthday or need to sign up in advance or have a special rewards card to receive the offer. However, the restaurant or company itself does promote the birthday offer so I feel good enough including it on the list although I didn’t receive an e-mail or take advantage of the deal personally.

Also, thank you to everyone who left a comment last year with Birthday deals I missed because I received a few new ones this year and have already enjoyed a few! :)

Please let me know in the comments below this year if there’s anything I may have missed, especially those free birthday dinners!

Here’s some great Free Birthday Stuff for 2015:
