Free Birthday Treats in the Washington, DC Area!

My birthday was this past week and I will be celebrating the entire month due to all the birthday meal free entree coupons I've received.

Here is a list of the free birthday treats I take advantage of every year.

Benihana's: Free entree (up to $30 value) for the month of your birthday. What you need to do: Join their online chef's table. The Benihanas in the Georgetown mall closed so you need to go to the location in Bethesda or Dulles.

Mei's Asian Bistro
: This place is located in Arlington and they will mail you a free entree for the month of your birthday (up to $15). I received mine by signing up for their birthday club at Mei's. Their address is 2424 Washington Blvd, just a few blocks from the Claredon Metro.

Bangkok Bisto
: Bangkok is located in Georgetown on Prospect and Wisconsin. This is the one place that will only give you a free entree (up to $12.99) on your birthday only. You just need to come in with an ID that has your bday on it and one other person (who has a different birthday than you!).

Capitol Restaurant Concepts, which ownes Neylas, Georgia Brown, Old Glory, J Pauls, Pik a Pita, and Paolo's, will give you a free appetizer along with your entree purchase. This deal is for anyone who signs up for their email list and isn't for your birthday. Sign up here.

Unos Chicago Grill also offers a free appetizer with the purchase of two entrees and other offers throughout the year. Sign up here.This offer is for signing up for their email list. For your birthday you will get a coupon for $10 off a $$25 purchase.

Ted's Montana Grill offers birthday people on their listserv a free cookie and ice cream dessert. However for a better value, you can usually get buy one get one free entrees at Ted's through their website email offers and more discounts through Sign up for their email list here.

For dessert, you can sign up for MaggiMoos email list to get free ice cream on your birthday (value for a few weeks past your birthday too. Thee is a Maggi Moos in Adams Morgan on 18th Street.
You can also sign up for Cold Stone Creamery e-list to get free ice cream with one mix-in on your bithday month. Sign up here.

I suggest creating a junk email account for all these email lists and checking it your birthday month so you can take advantage of all the free food!

Let me know what I missed!

Hi Stephanie,

I just found your blog from the WP blog directory. Nice to find another frugal gal here in the DC Metro area.

My birthday was also in October (aren't October birthdays the best?), and I've been contemplating putting together a huge list of birthday food freebies for the NoVa area on my blog as well. Some I noticed that are missing from your list are the following (most require signing up for the restaurant/store's e-Club or e-newsletter in advance):

Free burger at Red Robin;
Free meal at Noodles & Company;
Free burrito at California Tortilla;
Free burrito at Moe's;
Free Starbucks beverage (if you have registered a Starbucks gift card online and provided your birthday and address);
Free Caribou Coffee beverage;
Free Baskin Robbins ice cream;
Free Rita's Italian Ice;
Free smoothie from Tropical Smoothie Cafe.

Keep up the great work with your blog!
Laura (another fun & frugal 20-something gal!)
