We’ve never been the type to seek out all the free birthday deals to get in Vancouver. Instead, we just remind people how good of friends we are and leave our wallets at home. But we can’t actually recommend that, since roughly half of the time it leaves us looking like fools.

So, here are some of the best free birthday deals in Vancouver. And a couple of buy-one-get-one type things, as well.

Editor’s Note: Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, some of these offers have been paused until further notice. Please check with the business before redeeming.

De Dutch

De Dutch doesn’t only offer you a free sweet or savoury Dutch pancake on your birthday. Oh no, because you have to be a member of ‘De Club’, which is by far the coolest sounding name on this list.

Where: Locations around Vancouver

Red Robin

Red Robin is an iconic Vancouver spot, and their burger is definitely one of the most well-known in the city. As a member of Red Robin Royalty, you’ll get one for free on your birthday!

Where: 803 Thurlow Street

Cypress Mountain

It was taken away last season, but we’re hoping that the free birthday lift ticket offer will be back by the winter. Just show your ID when getting a ticket and voila! Your day of fun is covered.

Where: Cypress Mountain Ski Resort

DENNY’S

The home of Canada’s hangover breakfast is also the home of the free birthday breakfast! At Denny’s, they’ll give you a free Grandslam Breakkie to celebrate your special day.
