Make a wish for free stuff on your birthday, and it just might come true! These local places treat kids to freebies, rewards and discounts on their big day. Keep in mind that you may have to download an app or sign up on an e-mail list, and some businesses may require you to show a photo ID. Many of the birthday deals below are valid during your entire birthday month, but make sure to read each offer for the details. To avoid disappointment, it’s best to call ahead to verify the deal is still valid; offers may change without notice.
