Birthday Freebies: Food

If you are like me, the probability is that you like free stuff too. – Insert smiley face.- Well, I put together a list of restaurants (chain) that will give you freebies or free food for your birthday, during your birthday month. The catch: you will have to sign-up via email for their rewards programs. Bonus: some will give you freebies just for signing up.
