    Trying to sign my kids up for the free birthday breakfast but its not simple loved it when you showed your ID this is a pain in the butt wanted to surprise kiddos when they got home.

      Hello Mrs Chocolate, It can be frustrating when programs change, but hopefully, you’ve got it figured out now. There are over 100 places that offer birthday food freebies on our full list of FREE BIRTHDAY MEALS, DESSERTS, AND MORE page. Be sure to check the list to see if there are other options that you and your family may enjoy instead of, or in addition to, the free birthday breakfast offered at Denny’s.

    how do I print coupon for free birthday grand slam meal

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Lorraine, Once you’ve signed up for Denny’s rewards program and included your birthday details, you should be on their email list to receive your coupon. Once you have your coupon, simply print it like you print other documents.

      Happy birthday!

    i have been trying for 3 years now , use to be able to go in show my ID , but not no more, so here i go trying again.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Michael, I’m not sure how the program used to work, but these days, the Denny’s free birthday mail requires guests to have a Denny’s account that includes their birthday information. Once you are in their system, they should send you an email that is valid during your birthday month that can be redeemed for a free meal. It does require more steps than simply showing your ID for a free meal, but on the bright side, you will have a full month to use the freebie!

    I went to Denny’s as usual for my free birthday Grandslam. I was greatly disappointed! The software you are using is not efficient. The person who waited on me when I wanted to pay was not happy. I feel she was blaming me for the delay, and it was your software! To top it all off, she did not give me a receipt, but had to ask for it, and she was not happy about that either! I have never had this problem at Denny’s. There are lots of free meals at other restaurants for a birthday and I may not go back to Denny’s.

    My birthday is I’m signing up for free grandslam [comment has been EDITED to remove personal information (e.g. birthdate, phone number, or address)]

  7. Richard Deibel says:

    I was denied a free birthday breakfast today at denny’s because I am not enrolled in your rewards program.
    Sorry, but I think things were much simpler when you only needed to show a drivers license or some other type of ID. I was really looking forward to the breakfast but left without it and will probably not return to Denny’s again.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Richard, It’s definitely easier when no advance signup is required. If you are opposed to signing up in advance for birthday offers, then you may want to browse the master list of freebies to find out if you have any other favorites that will work for you.

      Most places will require you to sign up or download their app in order to get their free birthday gifts.

    Birthdays are usually very special moments in many peoples life.l, especially mine. It’s a moment I don’t always joke with, and food are one of those things that are very essential in birthday celebration. I just can’t wait for my birthday to come and grab this amazing program.its really going bro be cool. I just hope this Covid-19 pandemic comes to an end ao can joyfully enjoy my birthday experience/celebrate with Denny’s loyalty program.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Sheddy, Go ahead and sign up, I’m sure that Denny’s will be happy to help you celebrate your birthday when the COVID-19 closures are behind us! Enjoy!!

  9. Michael says:

    Thanks for the heads up about this great offer we can get at Denny’s. Sadly I don’t have one real close to me, but this would come in handy next time I’m out traveling around my birthday.

    Does this deal ever expire do you know of ?

    Also have you gotten a free meal from there before, if so how did you like it?

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Micheal, Denny’s is a chain restaurant that delivers breakfast favorites consistently from coast to coast. The meals are standard American favorites and you can’t beat getting a free meal on your birthday!! The deal is only valid for a limited time — and advance signup is also required.

  10. Isanren says:


    This is a great program but is this still available right now with the whole Covid-19 lockdown? And do users have the option to select the kind of meal they want? Is this also available in the UK?  I will like to surprise someone on her birthday so I would really appreciate a feedback. Thanks.

    • Alyce says:

      Hello, these programs are focused on USA offers, but often big companies will offer similar offers to their customers all around the world (so you may as well check to see if your local restaurant is offering this free birthday meal special). 

      Many places are either honoring or extending the expiration dates for their birthday offers this year. Check your email offers from Denny’s for specific details about their evolving response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Birthdays are very special moments to many people. They are cherished and celebrated in many ways. For me I don’t remember them because of my very busy schedules but a Grand Slam for a birthday, I think that will be memorable. It is an offer to take up. Thank you for the post. Indeed best rewards programs.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Micheal, I’m glad this is a fun reason to do something different to celebrate your birthday this year. A free grand slam is always welcome!
