Birthday Freebies and Deals Roundup
My birthday is during one of the busiest months of the year. Everything needs to be completed BEFORE christmas break else you might be working extra hours to make deadlines! Despite the usual time crunch of my job, I managed a hefty birthday haul last month and am just now sharing. It's been three years since I last posted about a birthday roundup so this is long overdue!
San Diego Birthday Offers
We'll start with the local offers. I found a few new places like Banh Mi Hoa An, as well as redeemed a couple existing ones such as Duff Doggz and revisiting a few others.
Free banh mi sandwich from Banh Mi Hoa An through ibirthdayclub. This Vietnamese restaurant opened last year in the Sports Arena area and I'm definitely bringing Dennis next time to explore more of the menu. Their sandwich was delicious with a healthy crunch of toasty bread and crisp cucumbers.
Free hot dog from Duff Doggz through ibirthdayclub. We chose the chicago dog which is the ONLY way I want my hot dogs from now on! Even the mustard seemed so perfect in this combo!
$10 off purchase from Fairouz Cafe through ibirthdayclub. I picked out the beef kofta to eat immediately plus ordered a huge plate of gyros to take home.
$5 off purchase from Grater Grilled Cheese. My sandwich pick was the B.A.T grilled cheese with bacon, avocado, and tomato.
$10 off purchase from Bushfire Kitchen. Our dinner was a burger with a side of mac n cheese and the lamb curry entree with sides of butternut squash and more veggies.
Free medium gelato from Pappalecco. I can't believe they give you THREE scoops for your birthday! We chose two scoops of their most popular flavor (name escapes me at the moment) and the dependable pistachio.
Free cupcake from Sprinkles. This year I chose the peppermint cupcake as my treat!
While grabbing lunch from Wich Addiction, I found a free cookie offer on my fivestar app! Hooray! It was a homemade chocolate chip cookie, soft and tasty.
Champagne Bakery was handing out free hot chocolate one chilly evening so we decided to stop inside their store. As we were checking out for a lemon tart, the girl overheard me talking about my recent birthday and after confirmation, just gave it to us on the house! We often buy their Princess Cake for my birthday (anonymously) so this was totally unexpected and heartwarming!
National/Chains Birthday Offers
These next places are available outside of San Diego.
Free candy cube from Sugarfina. This is a new offer I found at the Sugarfina store in UTC mall. If you purchase at least $10 worth of merchandise (or $5 during double point days), you qualify for a monthly free sampler pack and a free candy cube during your birthday month. I love the peach bellini flavor.
Free sandwich with app from Firehouse Subs. This is the Hero Sub but they were out of one of the meats during my visit.
$10 off purchase from Godiva. They don't email you a reminder AND don't allow you to stack offers with sales. These regular priced chocolates cost under $2 after discount.
Free charburger with cheese with email code from The Habit. Our favorite item is the Superfood Salad so we upgrade and pay the difference, ~$4.
Free small smoothie from Jamba Juice. I just discovered a new flavor this year... Peanut Butter Moo'd. Dreamy taste!
Free dessert with app from Luna Grill. This was the carrot cake cookie.
$10 off purchase with app at Native Foods. The rewards program converted to an app earlier this year so I didn't sign up in time for the birthday offer but at least I had $5 off for switching to the app! We decided to try the Cherry Chocolate BBQ Burger with a side of potato salad.
Free bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes. I love the lemon flavor best!
Free entree with drink purchase from Rubios. I always get the lobster surf and turf burritos and just paid for the drink < $3.
I redeemed other deals (Cafe 21, Burger Lounge, Fogo de Chao, Red Robin, Green Spot, Dolce Italian Ice, Fat Sal's, Dickey's BBQ, Panera Bread, Mike's Jersey Subs) you'll just have to take my word for it (until photos get magically processed).
