Birthday Freebies

Arizona Birthday Freebies!

There are many birthday freebies in Arizona!  (Many of these are also national deals.)

We did not include dine-in restaurants that give you a free dessert after your meal since so many do.  Call ahead and/or ask your server for dessert perks, if you’re celebrating your birthday.  There is usually something.

There are a few freebies where you will only need to show ID.  (Those have ** by them.)  That’s for the last minute people reading this.  :)

Most deals require you to sign up for an email club and a coupon will be emailed, around the time of your birthday.  Many are good for a week or two around your birthday.  Sign up before your birthday so they start to roll in when your birthday comes and you can enjoy a couple weeks of great deals!  You might want to use an alternate email so that you don’t begin getting too many extra emails.  (You can create free ones with gmail or hotmail.)

All of these deals are subject to change.  Please leave a comment if something has changed and we’ll update the list.  Also, let us know if there’s something we can add.

Enjoy your special day!

We didn’t list restaurants that only give a free dessert, when meal purchases, since so many do.

Be aware, anything can change at any time.  If you want to be sure, you’ll have to contact the company directly.

Please leave a comment if you find a deal has changed in any way.  We would like to keep this list as up to date as possible.  Also, we would love to hear about more Arizona birthday deals!  Just leave us a comment or email, please.

  • Rosie says:

    Hi, Juli!
    Corner Bakery Café gives you a free dessert for your birthday (you can just get it “to go” if you want)….their Twisted Lemon Hand Pie is yummy. They also emailed an extra free dessert in December! How nice was that? ; )

    • Juli says:

      Thanks, Rosie! We finally fixed (I think) the formatting issue we had with additions. Now, I just have to figure out what it was that I did before we started having major issues with this post. I’m forgetful and not so great with computer stuff that isn’t straightforward, sometimes. :( I hope to figure it out tomorrow and get it on our list since … I’m going to bed now! Good night!

  • Colleen C says:

    Sad news, Firehouse subs just changed their policy last month (2/2016). You now have to sign up on their site for free birthday sub.

    • Juli says:

      Thank you for the reminder to change this. I can’t tell you how many time I think that I need to talk to my computer and do it then … forget when I get here. My birthday is Feb. 24th, so I also learned that. They still give it to me, thankfully! I like not having to sign up for e-clubs, but I also like the freedom to go on days around my birthday and it sounded like this would give us a week or so. So, I won’t complain, I guess. :) Thank you!!

  • Carla says:

    Nothing Bundt Cake sends you a coupon for a free bundtlet on your birthday if you’re signed up for their rewards club.

    Jamba Juice will send you a reward for a free small smoothie or juice if you’re signed up for their rewards club also

    Thanks for all you do!

    • Juli says:

      Thank you, Carla! I’m not sure how I don’t have Jamba on there. I semi-remember putting it there and am signed up for the club. I’m hoping that doesn’t mean I deleted or didn’t save some others. ??? Anyway, it’s there now and I added one I didn’t know about, Nothing Bundt Cake. Thanks so much!!

  • Barbara says:

    Don & Charlies sends us $15 coupons off anything on our anniversary and on our birthdays after you sign up. Also, any dessert on their menu is free on your birthday.

  • Barbara says:

    I may be wrong but I believe you need to have the app for Firehouse Subs. I’m tired of more apps!

    • Juli says:

      I’m having a problem with submitting the form right now (trying a different email, to test), but it appears you can still do Firehouse Subs online. Just click on the spot that says, “Sign up online” at this link:
      But, I just tried Firefox and Chrome and I’m not having any luck. It’s having issues right now. Hope we can still do it he “old fashioned” way. I agree, I’m not into having a bunch of apps on my phone, that I’ll use once a year. Hope that’s not how it has to work now!
