It’s your birthday, and you could use some FREE FOOD, coupons or other stuff – because, well, you aren’t getting any younger right? Whether you like the uptick in age or despise it, you can certainly appreciate the goodwill and attention you get from your favorite places offering you something nice on your Birthday.
But this list is about the BEST FREE BIRTHDAY OFFERS, not just the one’s you already know about or were already going to take advantage of. Let’s be honest, some of these “FREE OFFERS” are nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to improve branding and get you to spend more at places you’d already be frequenting.
The ever-expanding list of FREE Birthday Treats (Some edible and some not so much)
This is a list of the Best FREE offers on your birthday that is progressive. It will continue to be added to and is catering mostly to the Southern California Market or inclusive of National Chains. Check back to see more offers as we add them (we add several locations monthly – sometimes weekly)
There is no reason why you should feel pressured to buy something on your birthday if you don’t want to, and that’s one of the major reasons we compiled this list. If something is offered as FREE, it should be actually FREE, with no strings attached. So, for the purposes of the list and with that reasoning behind us, we have distribute these offers based on tiers of value with regard to the FREEBIE in question.
Some will be top tier offers, like a no-strings-attached item or cash value coupon; others will find themselves on lower tiers where they only offer a FREEBIE if you buy something at a minimum purchase threshold.
We also include some basic information on where the locations are that offer the FREE promotion in the Inland Empire and how to get in touch with the company online to receive the offer.
You should note however: that some companies are franchise owned and will not opt-in to the promotion. It truly does depend on the location, so make sure you scrutinize the coupon or email as it comes in it’s stated offer to make sure your location applies. A quick phone call can save you some gas money and time too if you need clarification before you leave to get your FREEBIE.
We did our best to give firsthand experience knowledge on the one’s we think make the most sense. Look for our individual experiences throughout this list of FREE BIRTHDAY PROMOTIONS.
Here they are starting with the premium tier FREE OFFERS:
Nothing Bundt Cakes
One of the most satisfying offers on this list, there is no-drama with the transaction, even if you don’t buy something while there. This is a premium product, and a substantial freebie because of the quality and lack of strings. No Purchase needed, but you probably will anyways because the Bundtlet’s are so good.
You can sign up HERE (https://www.nothingbundtcakes.com/) where the email signup “eClub” banner is pretty easy to find.
The standard flavors are as follows: Chocolate Chocolate Chip; Classic Vanilla; Red Velvet; White Chocolate Raspberry; Confetti; Carrot; lemon; Marble; and Pecan Praline.
NBC offers a new flavor generally every 1-2 months. Not every flavor gets adopted, but some do. For the Month or February 2020 (the time of this posting) the featured “monthly” flavor is Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl. Note: Not all Franchisee locations will be offering all featured flavors.
Generally, unlike many other offers on this list, NBC franchisee locations are generous with this offer. Many other companies have difficulty offering freebies through Franchisee locations. That’s not a hard and fast rule, but it’s not been a problem in our experience at multiple locations to get our FREE Bundtlet cake in our Birthday months.
Locations in the Inland Empire are as follows:
Menifee, Temecula, Palm Desert, Redlands, Riverside, Corona, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga.
Just a bit further out are some other Southern California Locations: Carlsbad, San Marcos, Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Tustin, Orange. Multiple San Diego and Los Angeles Locations also exist.

Nothing Bundt Cakes states on their website that their cakes contain wheat, milk, eggs, pecans (in our Pecan Praline cakes only) and soy. Cakes may contain traces of tree nuts and peanuts. There is usually a Gluten Free variety in most locations, which is usually a chocolate chip cake and is also excellent.
Habit Burger Grill
Their burgers are excellent, if not a bit messy. Their birthday offer is also exceptionally good. In all honesty, this is the type of offer that because it is of such high quality and with basically no-strings-attached, really goes a long way to improving my view of the company, and helps me to opt for the burger chain more often, despite my love of In-N-Out and the slightly premium price point of Habit.
That’s exactly what a FREE offer should do, in our book! We love that there aren’t any issues getting a FREE burger without another purchase if we don’t want to spend additional money. But, the food is so good, it’s almost a foregone conclusion we are going to be grabbing more burger when we arrive as a family after we get our birthday coupons.
Well Played Habit Burger Grill. What a great FREE Birthday Offer!
You can find habit burger Grill’s sign up “The CHAR CLUB” HERE(https://www.habitburger.com/charclub/)
You can find locations in the following Inland Empire areas: Menifee; Murrieta; Temecula; Wildomar; Moreno Valley; The HUB @ UC Riverside; Redlands, Riverside, on the campus at Cal-Baptist University, Colton and (Early-Mid 2020) in Hemet. They are growing rapidly, and there are significantly more locations in Southern California too.
Their Location Tool is HERE (https://www.habitburger.com/locations/)
Generally, this is a no questions asked transaction. If you legitimately don’t want to make an additional purchase, you won’t have to. Of course, every Franchise is different, and you should see the above note about how to navigate FREE OFFERS in your birthday month.
This is also a top tier FREEBIE offering for Birthdays. You can sign up HERE (https://www.jerseymikes.com/account)
A regular sized Sub Sandwich is on offer and they have a pretty robust points program if you frequent the sandwich shop.
Inland Empire Shop locations include: Hemet, Temecula, Menifee, Murrieta, Riverside and Surrounding areas. This is a national chain company and can be found almost to the point of redundancy. There are several stores in Temecula, for instance.
There are genuinely too many locations in the area to list efficiently on a post like this. You can find their locator tool HERE (https://www.jerseymikes.com/locations)
Chick-fil-A is very generous usually, with all of its offers. You can get some great items for FREE by just making a normal purchase. Their customer service, value for money and unmistakable flavors are also good reasons to frequent the company. Along with companies like In-N-Out, they are a best in class fast food company.
Forgetting the politics, their robust rewards program found HERE (https://www.chick-fil-a.com/one) under the name of Chick-fil-A One, is quite generous, but does factor in the discretion of the individual franchisees. So, there isn’t a set offering on your birthday – it all depends on your location and app history.
If you are already going to chick-fil-A with any regularity it just makes sense to join the program. It gets better as you spend money.
Without question because how good the food is and the depth of the attention to detail on the Chick-fil-A ONE program, this is a top tier offering, even if we can’t tell you exactly what you’ll get on your birthday for FREE.
You can find dozens of locations on their website at this URL HERE (https://www.chick-fil-a.com/Locations) Obvious locations in the Inland Empire and surrounding areas include: Murrieta; Temecula; Lake Elsinore; Corona; Laguna Nigel; Oceanside and many other Los Angeles and San Diego Locations. Their location finder is a very well thought out application too, with native intuitive behaviors, like checkmark sort boxes for amenities, and location opt-in notifications.
It’s a small total value to get a FREE DVD rental, but if you have been meaning to see that latest release on DVD, it can be a big benefit on a birthday night. They have a cool program for frequent renters too, with lots of perks.
You can see the information about their program HERE (https://www.redbox.com/perks)
You’ll get a FREE rental for signing up. Then another in your birthday month. And since there are thousands of locations, it’s an easy pickup after grocery shopping, or whatever. It’s a top tier offering on our list because of the sheer number of places you can find a rental kiosk, and the fact that it’s as close as you can get to a true FREEBIE. You don’t even have to interact with humans if you don’t want to. They just give you a code and require you to have an account with them. Simple as that.
