    tony romas doesnt mail you a card anymore. they send you a coupon that you have to print off via a link in an email. you have to be careful because you only get to access the coupon once. i didnt get it last year because i couldnt print it and when i went to another computer to print it, it wouldnt let me access it anymore. it told me to write the email address and explain the problem to get another coupon but i was never answered.

  65. shannon

    Hi all,

    I work at Cleo 🙂 they did make changes for birthday offer – it’s now 10% off all your purchases during the week of your birthday (on regular, sale and clearance merchandise). You can also combine this discount on top of any coupons or store promotions. As well, use your $25 voucher (for each $500 you spend before taxes). Pretty much all the discounts are combinable :))) It is free to become a cleo connect member and your cleo points never expire :)) I think that’s the best store vip membership. Thank u

    I know that Ikea used to give out a free toy (ie one of their small plushes that they sell or a marker kit) to the kids on their birthday. I walked in with my daughter one day on her birthday, while she was wearing her Happy Birthday Crown from daycare, and the lady pulled me aside and offered my daughter a choice of items that they had (located at the kids drop off area). My daughter chose the stuffed guinea pig. At check out they almost charged me for it, until I indicated that it was my daughter’s birthday, then there was no charge. THat was a nice surprise for her!!

  72. A Cabrejos

    Kelly O’Bryan’s Restaurant in BC (not sure if they’re across Canada), offer free meal on your birthday when you come in with a friend or family.

    The birthday basket sounds great, but after I click the above link, how to leave a comment on that wall page in order to qualify, I can’t find a place anywhere?

    • Ginger

      I would like to hear from one person who has been successful, and received a basket. I’m not saying it isn’t legit, however the FB page has a lot of info about how to give them your personal info, and very little else. Where are the photos? The happy win-win recipients and companies that participate? I don’t see much info on why they do this and how it manages to be successful beyond a very cursory mention of their partners. I have done a web search and found basically, nil about them. Does this make sense for a sucessful business model? I sincerely hope ppl are getting baskets all day long. However, I think we should all ask a question or two before throwing our personal info at strangers. All I saw were comments like “I did not receive my basket”.
      Someone plz clear this up for us if possible. Thanks!

    I just wanted to add that The Firehall in Oakville’s Bronte village offers the birthday person a free entree up to 15 dollars.

    Also, at Mandarin buffet you get eat for free on your birthday and must show ID!

    • jason

      Hands down best birthday offer in Calgary is at “Steels Cafe & Grill” in the Royal Executive Inn on Barlow. No registering no strings attached just show your ID and get a free meal ($22 value). I go here every year with my wife on our birthdays and other occasions with friends. Great food, great service and one year when my wife was in the hospital on my birthday I went alone, and guess what, no hassles I didn’t even bring a second guess and no charge, they even threw in the pop for free. What a great gift! Nothing in it for them (except future patronage and positive feedback) no charge just wished me a happy birthday. Check it out! It’s FREE and great businesses like this should be rewarded with our patronage. Thank you Steels!

    • Pearl

      For many years we have been going to the Mandarin for birthday dinners and not once did we get it for free….they have always asked us if there is a special occasion..and we always mentioned someones birthday….

      • cdngal

    Does anyone know, to receive the free dozen bagels at what-a-bagel, is it offer valid on0 the exact day of your birthday and will they ask for ID?

    • wendy margolese

      Yes you need to show id and it’s only on your birthday. The upside is that you can go to as many locations as you would like to..

  96. Jay Bee

    You indicate that “Mandarin Buffet – Eat for free on your birthday, must show ID.”
    Unfortunately, this information conflicts with their web site.

    According to Mandarin Buffet’s FAQ web page:
    “Do you offer discounts? For groups? On birthdays? For frequent customers?
    We are committed to offering the best quality of food, service and atmosphere and strive to deliver value to our customers continuously, without any discounts.”

    According to that same web page, the only discounts they do offer are:
    “Children 4 years old or under are $2.00 sharing price for the buffet.
    Children 5 – 12 years old are ½ price for the buffet.
    Seniors 65 years old and better (with valid I.D.) receive 20% off the buffet price.”
