Times Square, the Empire State Building, Central Park, the Yankees, Lady Liberty, and according to our data, the 2nd most birthday freebies in the nation. Birthdays in NYC can be anything the mind imagines, from shopping at Bloomingdales on the Upper Eastside to fine French cuisine at L'Abeille in Tribeca, by the way, be sure to try the foie gras crème brûlée for a real birthday treat.
New York City Birthday Freebies
Onto the Free Stuff
If you’re starting the bday celebrations early, there are a number of caffeinated freebies across the city. Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, and Argo Tea have bday deals to take advantage of. Not to mention the breakfast faves like IHOP, Krispy Kreme, or Denny's. Eateries of every kind have a rewards program that usually involves a birthday perk or freebie.
Midday Free Activities...
Midday birthday activities with bday deals include free tanning at Beach Bum and enhanced therapies at Massage Envy among others. Get yourself something new for the night out at Kendra Scott Jewelry with 50% off your purchase. Mid-afternoon is often a good time for a pick-me-up as well. You can grab a smoothie at Smoothie King, Orange Julius, or Jamba Juice to name a few.
Into The Night
One of our faves to get the party started is at KeyBar in the East Village. Give KeyBar a shot, and receive free shots! This East Village dive bar is renowned for its six-hour plus happy hours. Order a round of any shots and get the same number of shots of your choice.
Dinner deals abound in every corner of the boroughs. $30 off at Benihana’s, $25 at Morton’s Steak House or get a birthday surprise at the Hard Rock Cafe.
List of New York Birthday Freebies
You want a list? You can't handle the list! That's right Colonel Jessup, our list is huge, there are over 1000 deals in the New York area alone. If you spent 27 seconds reading about each of the freebies and deals in our list it would take over 7 hours to reach the bottom. But here's the good news. We've created a sortable and filterable list in our Yayday app for you. Looking for shopping or retail deals? Hit that filter button on our search bar and then select "shopping". Birthdays often involve desserts of some kind and just hitting that dessert filter makes them all magically appear. We're here to help you "birthday better" and celebrate with free food, ice cream, and makeup from Sephora. Oh and it's not all about getting a burger or burrito, we'll show you plenty of things to do as well. You don't even have to write them down, just hit that cute little heart button in the app. Once the confetti flies across the screen, we've got it saved in your faves.
