NOTE:
some of these threads are old, some are recent.
not every offer listed is still current.

=====
Obviously, threads on this topic should not be "archived", and the topic really should have its own "free stuff" stickied thread at the top of the Free Stuff forum, so people don't keep reinventing the wheel.

I tried to ask for that, but it didn't work:

Do you think that the "on your birthday: free food and stuff" thread should be un-archived/made a current FW thread?

For west coasters, Rubios is a good one since you can get $7 worth of good food to go.

BTW, today I received a great B-day freebie from SportClips via email. Free MVP haircut certificate, $24 value. I wasn't expecting it but I assume I signed up on their email list somewhere along the line. Thought I would share since all the birthday boys are probably here foraging for free food!

I think the Fuddruckers burgers are the best birthday freebie that I've gotten, but the burgers at Red Robin are so terrible that I won't even eat a free one. FWIW, the one time that I did go to Red Robin on my b-day, they gave me free ice cream (and of course fries) in addition to the free burger. The atmosphere isn't as bad as Fuddruckers, but the burgers are terrible. I'll try Ruby Tuesday next year.

That's a very good question. I don't know?

alanmax said:   ...Red Robin requires a purchase of an entree after you activate the card to qualify for the free birthday burgers....

Thanks for pointing this out, alanmax!

Thanks to you, I took a closer look at their sneaky Terms & Conditions:

Reward Redemption Order
1. Registration Reward
2. Surprise & Delight Rewards
3. 5 Visits in 5 Weeks, $20 Reward on 6th visit
4. Birthday Burger
5. Buy 9 items, Get the 10th item Free

Registration Reward
Upon registering a Red Royalty card at http://www.redrobin.com/redroyalty/ a free appetizer reward will be placed on the card. In order to receive the reward, the member must visit a Red Robin restaurant within 14 days and order the appetizer. If there is another reward available in addition to the Registration Reward, the Registration Reward will take priority and be redeemed first since it is a limited time offer.

Surprise & Delight Rewards
Occasionally throughout the year, members will receive email notification regarding Surprise & Delight Rewards that are available to them as a registered member. These rewards are limited time offers and can only be redeemed during a designated time frame. Because of their redemption restrictions, these types of rewards will take priority over any other reward except the Registration Reward.

...

Birthday Burger
During the month of the member’s birthday, a free burger will be placed on their Red Royalty card. In order to receive the reward, the member must visit during the month of their birthday and order any of Red Robin’s Gourmet Burgers. If the member visits and orders a burger, but also has the Registration Reward available, the Registration Reward will be redeemed first since it is a limited time offer. Since the burger was ordered during the month of the member’s birthday, it will remain on their Red Royalty card and be available for redemption during their next visit.


In short, it looks like I can't redeem my birthday burger until I get the "Registration Reward" and possibly their mysterious "Surprise & Delight Rewards" out of the way. (As you can probably infer, I have minimal interest in the free appetizer.)

Thanks again.

Thanks. The website is a good idea but I was kind of disappointed with the results. For Illinois, the results I got were Red Robin which is outdated, Boston Market, Chuck E Cheese, Buffalo Wild Wings, Johnny Rockets, Ben & Jerry's, Denny's, Mimi's Cafe, Waffle House, and a bunch of IHOP locations. The national deals are all listed here already.

Claim Jumper birthday deal (free $18 entree) just died.
Now you have to pay $25 to join their club, getting a $25 entree in return and then get free birthday entree.
So basically BOGO...no deal.

It may sound like sour grapes but their food portions and quality have gone way down hill lately!
I think Landry's (the owner) has big $ problems and is taking it out on their restaurants.

  Yes is has changed for the pancake stack but its valued @ $8.29 and you can substitute it for anything or pay the difference if its more.
