Here’s what you need to know before getting free birthday drinks:

Offers can vary by region and they may change often. Many of the businesses listed above do not list the actual promotion details so it’s difficult to verify if they change or are removed. We will try to keep this list updated of free birthday drinks as often as possible.

As you may have noticed, most restaurant chains are switching to app-based promotions as a way to reach their customers easier. Unfortunately, it’s also a way to track and send you notifications.

I recommend, after installing each app, take a moment to review your privacy settings and ensure you are comfortable with the level of data sharing taking place. Before installing any app on your Android or iPhone, you should be aware of potential privacy issues. Although most apps are harmless, some may access your personal information without your permission.

Pro tips for scoring all of the best free birthday drinks:

In order to take advantage of free birthday drinks, you will need to sign up for the rewards programs in advance. This will ensure that you have the offer available when your birthday arrives.

Many places won’t send a birthday offer if you sign up too close to your actual birthday.

Most birthday offers have a redemption window so you’ll need to act before the free offer expires. Starbucks for example is valid for your birthday only giving you one day to redeem it. However, some are valid for a whole month.
