We all love a good birthday freebie. And luckily for you, it just so happens that there are a bunch of spots where you can score free things, mostly food. So here are 12 places to get free stuff on your birthday in Seattle.

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.

Buffalo Wild Wings

Chicken is always good, especially when it’s free. On your birthday you can snag a free snack-size order of traditional or boneless wings. Of course, you also get to choose a tasty sauce to go along with it. All you have to do is join the Blazin’Rewards program.

Baskin Robbins

If you sign up for the Baskin Robbins Birthday Club you’ll get an email coupon for a free scoop of ice cream on your big day. And we don’t know about you guys but we can’t really say no to free ice cream. Plus this chain always feels like a bit of a blast from the past.

The Cheesecake Factory

Remember the iconic video of a young woman walking out of Cheesecake Factory during the Seattle protests? Well, that can kind of be you minus the looting and cake. Because this chain actually gives you a bowl of ice cream on your birthday and a song. Just be sure to prove it’s actually your birthday.


Let Denny’s treat you to breakfast on your birthday. Because you can score a free grand slam on your big day. And if you ask us, it doesn’t get much better than free breakfast. Plus you can just show up, no need to sign up for anything.

Einstein Bros. Bagels

This one you do have to sign up for but the good news is that you get a free bagel for signing up. And on your birthday you also get a free egg sandwich. So why not get two free tasty bagels for simply existing. Just sign up for the Shmear Society and you’re good to go.

It’s a bit surprising that Hooters still exist in 2021 but believe it or not, they do! So if you want to spend your birthday at this Y2K throwback spot you can score 10 free wings. All you have to do is sign up for the Hootclub.


Remember when this chain tried to change to IHOB? It just doesn’t have quite the same ring. But the good news is that you can score a free full stack of pancakes on your birthday. All you have to do is join the Pancake Revolution.

Jamba Juice

If you feel like scoring a juice or smoothie on your birthday then you should join the Jamba Juice Reward program. The only caveat about this one is that you have to have racked up at least 15 points ($15) to score the freebie. But if you’re into this chain, that won’t be hard to do.

Krispy Kreme

Yes, it’s absolutely worth the drive down to SODO to score a free donut. Because let’s face it, even the pickiest donut people like a good old fashion glazed Krispy Kreme donut. And on your birthday you can score a free donut of your choice if you’re a part of their rewards program.

Peet’s Coffee

We could all use a free coffee, especially on our birthdays. And all you have to do to score one from Peet’s is sign up for Peetnik Rewards. It’s easy and you could probably even do it the day of if you’re a last-minute planner.


This list wouldn’t be complete without local coffee giant Starbucks. On your birthday you can score a free beverage or food item of your choice if you’re signed up for their rewards program. So you might as well go big and order a Trenta.

Red Robin

We’ll cap the list with a spot to snag a free burger. Because who doesn’t love a good old burger, especially when it’s free. And you can’t go wrong with Red Robins’s crazy atmosphere. It always feels a bit like a fever dream but hey, we’ll take it.

That’s what we have for you when it comes to places to get free stuff on your birthday in Seattle. Yes, we know most of them are chains but those are the companies that can afford to give out free stuff. And before you go, be sure to check hours and whatnot because, with COVID, everything is a little unpredictable as you all know.JTNDZGl2JTIwaWQlM0QlMjJtb2JpbGUtYWQtb25seSUyMiUzRSUwQSUzQyUyMS0tJTIwU2VhdHRsZSUyMC0lMjBNb2JpbGUlMjAtLSUzRSUwQSUzQ2lucyUyMGNsYXNzJTNEJTIyYWRzYnlnb29nbGUlMjIlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBzdHlsZSUzRCUyMmRpc3BsYXklM0FibG9jayUzQndpZHRoJTNBMzIwcHglM0JoZWlnaHQlM0E1MHB4JTNCJTIyJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwZGF0YS1hZC1jbGllbnQlM0QlMjJjYS1wdWItNTUyMTg1Njk1NTQ5NzQ1NiUyMiUwQSUyMCUyMCUyMCUyMCUyMGRhdGEtYWQtc2xvdCUzRCUyMjE2MjcxNzI5NDclMjIlM0UlM0MlMkZpbnMlM0UlMEElM0MlMkZkaXYlM0U=
