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!

100 Facts About Winnipeg

I have been told my entire life that Winnipeg was just like Regina, but slightly larger. This gave the impression that there wasn't much to see in Winnipeg and that it, along with Regina, were more-or-less "fly over destinations". Since starting my blog, I've learned Regina is an absolutely incredible city so I imagined Winnipeg was the same. I then proceeded to contact Tourism Winnipeg and Travel Manitoba to find out the true Winnipeg, and ended up going on a multi-day excursion of their city.

Since a lot of my readers are from Regina and they almost all know somebody heading there for the Banjo Bowl in a couple of days, I thought I'd put this list together. There's a lot more to see there than just Investors Group Field, and the city's history is incredibly fascinating, so I hope you enjoy this list of 100 things about "Canada's Gateway to the West".

Several of these facts are taken from Frank Albo's tour of the Manitoba Legislative Building, but there are many I didn't mention. If you enjoyed them, I encourage buying his book: "The Hermetic Code"
