Birthday Freebies and Deals Roundup

My birthday is during one of the busiest months of the year. Everything needs to be completed BEFORE christmas break else you might be working extra hours to make deadlines! Despite the usual time crunch of my job, I managed a hefty birthday haul last month and am just now sharing. It's been three years since I last posted about a birthday roundup so this is long overdue!

San Diego Birthday Offers

We'll start with the local offers. I found a few new places like Banh Mi Hoa An, as well as redeemed a couple existing ones such as Duff Doggz and revisiting a few others.

Banh Mi Hoa An special banh mi San Diego birthday freebies

Free banh mi sandwich from Banh Mi Hoa An through ibirthdayclub. This Vietnamese restaurant opened last year in the Sports Arena area and I'm definitely bringing Dennis next time to explore more of the menu. Their sandwich was delicious with a healthy crunch of toasty bread and crisp cucumbers.

Duff Doggz chicago dog San Diego birthday freebies

Free hot dog from Duff Doggz through ibirthdayclub. We chose the chicago dog which is the ONLY way I want my hot dogs from now on! Even the mustard seemed so perfect in this combo!

Fairouze Cafe beef kofta San Diego birthday deal

$10 off purchase from Fairouz Cafe through ibirthdayclub. I picked out the beef kofta to eat immediately plus ordered a huge plate of gyros to take home.

Grater Grilled Cheese B.A.T grilled cheese birthday deal

$5 off purchase from Grater Grilled Cheese. My sandwich pick was the B.A.T grilled cheese with bacon, avocado, and tomato. 

Bushfire Kitchen burger with side of mac and cheese San Diego birthday deals

$10 off purchase from Bushfire Kitchen. Our dinner was a burger with a side of mac n cheese and the lamb curry entree with sides of butternut squash and more veggies. 

Pappalecco 3 scoop gelato birthday freebie

Free medium gelato from Pappalecco. I can't believe they give you THREE scoops for your birthday! We chose two scoops of their most popular flavor (name escapes me at the moment) and the dependable pistachio.

Sprinkles peppermint cupcake birthday freebie

Free cupcake from Sprinkles. This year I chose the peppermint cupcake as my treat!

Birthday Surprises

Wich Addiction cookie San Diego birthday freebie

While grabbing lunch from Wich Addiction, I found a free cookie offer on my fivestar app! Hooray! It was a homemade chocolate chip cookie, soft and tasty. 

Champagne Bakery lemon tart San Diego birthday surprise

Champagne Bakery was handing out free hot chocolate one chilly evening so we decided to stop inside their store. As we were checking out for a lemon tart, the girl overheard me talking about my recent birthday and after confirmation, just gave it to us on the house! We often buy their Princess Cake for my birthday (anonymously) so this was totally unexpected and heartwarming!

National/Chains Birthday Offers

These next places are available outside of San Diego.

Sugarfina peach bellini candy cube birthday freebie

Free candy cube from Sugarfina. This is a new offer I found at the Sugarfina store in UTC mall. If you purchase at least $10 worth of merchandise (or $5 during double point days), you qualify for a monthly free sampler pack and a free candy cube during your birthday month. I love the peach bellini flavor.

Firehouse Subs hero sandwich birthday freebies

Free sandwich with app from Firehouse Subs. This is the Hero Sub but they were out of one of the meats during my visit.

Godiva chocolate bars birthday deal

$10 off purchase from Godiva. They don't email you a reminder AND don't allow you to stack offers with sales. These regular priced chocolates cost under $2 after discount.

The Habit superfood salad upgrade birthday freebie

Free charburger with cheese with email code from The Habit. Our favorite item is the Superfood Salad so we upgrade and pay the difference, ~$4.

Jamba Juice small smoothie birthday freebie

Free small smoothie from Jamba Juice. I just discovered a new flavor this year... Peanut Butter Moo'd. Dreamy taste!

Luna Grill carrot cake cookie birthday freebie

Free dessert with app from Luna Grill. This was the carrot cake cookie.

Native Foods burger birthday deal

$10 off purchase with app at Native Foods. The rewards program converted to an app earlier this year so I didn't sign up in time for the birthday offer but at least I had $5 off for switching to the app! We decided to try the Cherry Chocolate BBQ Burger with a side of potato salad.

Nothing Bundt Cake lemon bundtlet birthday freebie

Free bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes. I love the lemon flavor best!

PizzaRev customized pizza birthday freebie

Free pizza from PizzaRev and Pizza Studio. I love build your own pizzas with chicken and spinach and sundried tomatoes, etc., so redeemed from both businesses!

Rubios burrito birthday freebie

Free entree with drink purchase from Rubios. I always get the lobster surf and turf burritos and just paid for the drink < $3.

I redeemed other deals (Cafe 21, Burger Lounge, Fogo de Chao, Red Robin, Green Spot, Dolce Italian Ice, Fat Sal's, Dickey's BBQ, Panera Bread, Mike's Jersey Subs) you'll just have to take my word for it (until photos get magically processed). Make sure to check out the master list of birthday freebies and deals for more.

Your birthday round ups are simply amazing. You're so dedicated! The bundt cake is always one of my fave bday freebies. But sometimes I wish they would rotate the flavors for the months. Did you try the snikerdoodle one recently?

Sad because I always look forward to the rubios bday coupon but this year they only sent me a BOGO entree coupon! :(
