Here’s a list of restaurants and other eateries across the Hawaiian Islands that offer some sort of free food, beverage, or dessert on your birthday. Birthday deals are followed by a list of food deals for those celebrating a wedding anniversary.
They all work pretty much the same. You sign up at the links below and they send you a coupon or code on your birthday and anniversary. Sign up any other relevant family members, too.
Be sure to sign up well before your birthday or anniversary. While some sign-ups become active immediately, some can take up to 60 days before you can get the free deal. Besides your special day, when you sign up you also may receive other deals as a loyalty club member. So it’s a gift to yourself that keeps on giving all year long. How delicious!
Note that for franchises, some locations may not participate, but sign-up is free and un-signing up is easy.
We update this list once or twice a year, so let us know if you find anything that has changed.
Another way to get more free food is to “Like” the Facebook page of your favorite restaurants, which sometimes contains offers outside of their loyalty email club.
And by the way, congratulations on your important day!
