It’s my Birthday Month! And I’m taking advantage of all the birthday deals available to me by attempting to get one birthday deal every day. Please read more about my mission in my “About” page. On we go!!
Business: Red Robin Gourmet Burgers & Brews
Offer: One free gourmet burger or chicken sandwich
Via: Red Robin Royalty Rewards program (loaded onto card)
Here’s all you need to know: get this, do this, enjoy this, and celebrate this birthday reward courtesy of Red Robin Gourmet Burgers. The birthday perk is a must-have: a free burger or chicken sandwich with no further purchase requirements. There are some ultra-special premium Black Angus burgers that are excluded from this offer, but that is not a big deal because check this out:
1) You have over 15 beef burgers and 6 chicken burgers to chose from
2) You can choose your style of bun, including a gluten free option
3) Unlimited refills on french fries? Yes!
4) Free dipping sauces for the fries, or upgrade to a few gourmet sauces for just $.75 each
5) For a couple dollars more, you can add additional sides like Mac ‘n’ Cheese and soup
6) Oh yeah, the burger is FREE
All you need to do to get the free burger is to join the Red Robin Royalty rewards program and make sure to register online with your birth date. In the past, the program required members to have a royalty card, but nowadays they are allowing people to sign up and go cardless — basically, you’ll use your phone number to identify you as a program member. There are other rules and fine print, so if you want all of that then just take a look here — you’ll also find the perks of being a member, such as buying 9 items and getting the 10th for free.
Okay, so you get a great burger with unlimited fries and you don’t have to buy anything. How about one more reason to not miss this? Here you go: the birthday reward is valid for the entire month of your birthday. So no need to rush out and redeem your free burger, just go after you’ve done all of your other birthday offers. And that’s exactly what I did, on day 29. Went in during the early evening and met up with friends. Split my birthday burger with my wife and ordered up a glass of wine. Enjoyed the food and the company, even enjoyed one refill of fries. When it came time for our bill, I just gave my royalty card to the waitress and she entered the information into the terminal. The computer recognized my card and deducted the cost of my birthday burger so all we had to pay for was the wine and the tip. Easy! And that was that, a free birthday burger for me, on the house. Thank you Red Robin, Happy Birthday!!
