Free Birthday Meals and Deals in the Greater Boston Area!

Birthday Freebies Boston

Psstt… This post has been updated! Here is the 2017 version of Where to Find Free Birthday Stuff in the Greater Boston Area!

Are you looking for Birthday freebies, places to get a free Birthday meal, dessert, appetizer or other great birthday offers in Boston and Massachusetts?

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 every year I round them up and share what I receive.

The first three categories below are everything I personally received for my birthday (most to my e-mail inbox) from various restaurants and retailers for being a customer and/or joining their e-mail club. If you want to take advantage of these offers, you will need to sign up beforehand as a club member and it’s free to do so (just have to share a little personal info like your bday).

(You can see the Birthday offers I received in 20152014 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.

Here are some great birthday freebies and offers I received in 2016:

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.

  • Main Street Grille, Weymouth (South Shore): Eat free on your birthday with a purchase of an entrée, ID required

Even More Free Birthday Stuff

I also got a $5/$10 promo code for more from GrubHub on my birthday, but I think that may have been coincidence, but a lovely one if so.

Also thank you all for commenting on previous Birthday posts as I got a few new birthday deals this year to take advantage of! :)
