Let’s be honest: Freebies are awesome. And getting freebies on your birthday is probably the closest we can get to the type of VIP treatment that celebrities enjoy on a daily basis.
To take advantage of some of these freebies, you may have to sign up for the vendor’s rewards program in advance, but hey, there’s no such thing as a truly free lunch. Make sure to check your Telco provider and bank’s promotion page for the latest birthday deals!
Below, we’ve rounded up the best birthday deals for you, so you can spend your special day collecting everything from a free latte upgrade to a complimentary pass for the Night Safari. Start counting down now!
Celebrate in the wild
Bored of indoor parties? Hold your birthday bash in the wild - well, we mean within the safe confines of the zoo and safaris, as you enjoy free admission to the Singapore Zoo, River Safari and Night Safari on your birthday!
Get a free cake
We've waxed lyrical about birthday cakes lately, but honestly speaking, any cake we get for free is a good cake (cheapo alert!). Redeem a complimentary birthday cake with a party of four at Ricciotti for all Starhub members, and at Edge and Colony for Hub Club (residential customers) members.
Or choose your own favourite at a discounted price
Have your pick of red velvet, strawberry shortcake or a classic American cheesecake - Cedele members get a free slice of cake on top of a 30 percent discount on a whole chilled cake, and M1 subscribers get 20 percent off cheesecakes from Cat & the Fiddle – one of our favourites.
Dine free with paying friends
If your friends are going to give you a treat anyway, why not take advantage of these restaurant deals? Go for the complimentary daily set lunch for Singtel subscribers with two paying guests at Bedrock Bar & Grill, or head to Marriott Café, where the birthday girl gets a free buffet with a party of nine.
Upsize your favourite coffee
Depending on your rewards programme, you can get anything from a free drink size upgrade to a complimentary drink customisation at Starbucks during your birthday month.
