20+ eats and treats you can get on your birthday in Calgary

Getting another year older is a celebration and what better way to commemorate the occasion than with free stuff! These birthday freebies will help make your special day even better. Here’s how to get your hands on these free items, just for being born!

Getting prepped for your birthday

  • Most of these birthday freebies requires you to download an app or sign up for a rewards account with the company. Do this at least 1-2 months before your birthday if you’re not already signed up. This will make sure the reward will load on time for your birthday.
  • Some of these rewards programs may require you to make a purchase prior or have other stipulations. Read the fine print carefully as they are subject to change. With that in mind, please note that the birthday freebie items, and redemption rules may change from what is posted in this blog over time.
  • Where possible, try to purchase something with your free item or leave a tip if it’s at a restaurant.
