Let’s start with some solid grub on your birthday. Folks who sign up for MyBP (their newsletter) can receive a free dessert on their special day. Oh, and new subscribers get a free starter coupon and a free individual 2-topping pizza on the anniversary of your sign-up date. So the sooner you sign up, the better!

COBS Bread 

Joining the COBS Club definitely has its perks, especially if you live or work near a COBS location and frequent them for a quick pastry to go. To qualify for the free cinnamon bun special, you have to have been a club member for at least seven days before your birthday, and make at least one transaction before your big day every year.

Where: 803 Thurlow Street

Grounds for Coffee

Now, let’s switch things up with something sweet. Joining the Grounds for Coffee loyalty program not only ensures you earn points every time you visit (and rewards after 300 points), but it also guarantees you a free delicious, gooey cinnamon bun on your birthday!
