Of course the best ones are the ones with no strings, just straight up free. Red Robin gives you a free burger, Sotto Varalli gives you one free entree when another is ordered (up to 25 bucks) Barnaby's gives a free meal with a major catch-you must have a party of 4. Odd.
So this is what i got for free from registering my birthday with places. There are 3 more that came after i took these pictures. Bennigans, RIP, for you were a great freebie, too. Of course i don't use all of them, especially the ones where it's only a free dessert, but it makes me feel special to get them. It doesn't take much to win my affections.
So do you guys get birthday coupons from local restaurants? Are there ones you will definitely use? Do tell.
