Birthday Freebies in Regina

Birthday Freebies in Regina

As of last week, I am officially in the final year of my 20s. That has me a little worried because they say it is the 30s when you are forced to finally grow-up... and I really do not want to do that. So, with that sense of impending doom in mind, I decided to embrace my inner child and find some birthday "freebies" around Regina.

There was just a pesky little pandemic in the way.

Because of this, I didn't feel it was right (or safe) to visit a dozen stores around the city, many of them restaurants, asking for free things. A lot of small businesses are hurting right now and asking for free things "just because" doesn't help them at all.

Instead, I chose one place to visit – Dessart Sweets – and I got my free birthday ice cream from them. I then bought all the Dino Sour candies they had on display. I considered it a little birthday present to myself, and I was happy to give the folks over there a sale.

Beyond Dessart Sweets, there are a plethora of other places in Regina you can get free things on your birthday too. Although it's great that these businesses offer freebies, it's also a good idea to buy something while you are there too.

While I was putting this list together, I learned a lot of Regina businesses require advance signups to qualify for their freebies. I understand why they do that, and I also understand that maybe you don't want to give your personal data over to another business. With both of those in mind, I broke up the list below into two sections so to better give the companies exposure, and to get you the birthday freebies you want.

Free Stuff (No Signup Required)

  1. Coney Island Poutine – a free poutine
  2. Denny's – a free birthday breakfast
  3. Dessart Sweets – a free ice cream
  4. Fresh Carnival - a free milkshake
  5. Malty National – a free beer
  6. Rainbow Cinemas – a free movie

Rock Creek Tap & Grill offers a free birthday dessert, but you need to purchase a meal first.

Free Stuff (Signup Required)

  1. Arby's – free shake and a free BOGO Beef and Cheddar Sandwich
  2. Birmingham's Vodka and Ale House – free birthday meal (just message them on Facebook "Birthday Meal" to begin the sign-up process.) It must be after 4pm and you must bring one other person with you. It can be used 7 days before or after your birthday.
  3. Boston Pizza – free dessert plus other freebies and discounts, like a free starter, free bandera bread, free pizza, etc.  
  4. The Canadian Brewhouse – a free half nachos
  5. Cuppa Tea – free 50 grams loose-leaf tea  
  6. David's Tea – free loose-leaf tea
  7. Dairy Queen – free ice cream cone
  8. Good Earth – free coffee
  9. Harvey's – a free burger for your birthday (and free onion rings for signing up)
  10. Kenton de Jong Travel – free list of 100+ things to do in Regina (sorry!)
  11. Marble Slab Creamery – free ice cream
  12. Mary Browns Chicken  – free chicken sandwich
  13. Mr. Mike's – free entree and free dessert, with a 2-week period to redeem it
  14. Perkin's – free breakfast
  15. Pita Pit – free pita
  16. Red Lobster – various different free foods, available a week before your birthday and three weeks after it.
  17. Starbucks – free coffee
  18. Sephora – free miscellaneous makeup
  19. Second Cup – free coffee 

The Body Shop also gives a free $10 off purchase birthday coupon for signing up, but that's not free since you're still required to pay for something. Cora's also gives you a $5 coupon for your birthday, as well as a personalized message from Madam Cora. Additionally, Quiznos also gives you free birthday points, but I don't consider "points" to be a freebie.

A lot of online websites also list the Keg Steakhouse as having a birthday freebie, but they actually stopped offering that in Canada so they don't make the list.

Have you taken an advantage of any of these freebies? Are there any that I missed? Let me know in the comments below!

5 Weekend Destinations In Saskatchewan

The past few weeks have been really busy for me, with a lot more time at the office and a lot less time travelling. Thankfully, the weekend is just around the corner and with it comes the possibility of a two day vacation. Having traveled to Lac La Ronge earlier this month, I've been thinking more and more about these short trips and how rejuvenating they can be.

Unfortunately, I haven't done as much travelling around Saskatchewan as I'd like, so I wasn't sure what the best places to visit were. There were of course the obvious choices such as Regina, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw, but I wanted someplace remote, yet somewhat close. For this project I approached some of my fellow travel bloggers and I got some ideas of what to go do and see for a weekend. I went through their ideas and came up with this short list of 5 weekend destinations in Saskatchewan.

Thanks to TELUS' incredible network, sections of Saskatchewan that once never had coverage can now be fully explored while still being connected to your mobile device. No matter where you travel in Saskatchewan -- or even in Canada -- this summer, you can rely on TELUS' mobile network to keep you connected.

Dog River After Corner Gas

Dog River, the fictional town of Corner Gas (2004 – 2009) is in Rouleau, Saskatchewan, about 40 minutes south of Regina. This town was once the location for over 100 episodes, a movie, and now an animated series. During production, buildings were renamed, structures were built, and the streets were full of actors, comedians, politicians, filming equipment and tourists.

Corner Gas was popular in Canada, the United States and Europe, getting somewhat of a following like Anne of Green Gables in Japan. Many European tourists came to Saskatchewan just to see the set, visit the locations from the show and experience small-town Saskatchewan life. The show was such a success that April 13 is even designated "Corner Gas Day" in Saskatchewan.

Once the show ended, many expected Dog River to become something like Avonlea in Prince Edward Island. It had the potential to be a thriving tourism centre, with live-action characters, running gags, scenes from the show, themed restaurants and Corner Gas merchandise.
