birthday dealsGRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Feb. 24, 2014) — Whether it’s a milestone birthday or if you just need a reason to look forward to turning another year older, there are a lot of wonderful places offering free goodies on your big day.

A great online resource that has more than 550 free birthday offers and more is You’ll find everything from national restaurant chains to free beauty supplies. Keep in mind that some places require you to hop on their email list, but hey! If it means a free meal or other stuff, it’s worth it!

If you play your cards right, you could get every single meal, plus snacks, for free on your birthday. Please bring your ID or birth certificate along. Also, many of the free meals require someone also getting a meal of equal value or more. What are my favorites?
