All of us have experienced the financial stress of being in college. As poor college students you want to take advantage of all the free food you can. There are so many places out there that offer some type of freebie on your birthday. Here is a list of places that offer free things on your birthday.

Some only require telling an employee it’s your birthday and others only require signing up for a mailing list. With that, you’ll sometimes receive other discounts and offers at other times of the year as well.
