    Is the Red Lobster offer good in Canada? The link leads to the US website. And is the Milestones offer still valid? The coupon shows that the offer expired on December 31, 2010

    • Hi Zoe, The Red Lobster offer is good in Canada. Just click to sign up and when filling out the form select Canada in the drop-down menu, then choose your province.

      The Milestones offer is valid as well. We did however have an old link up, so I changed the link to the recent offer for 2011. You’ll be required to fill out a form for the Milestones birthday meal as well. Thanks for your comment!

    I just received my B-day offer (Canada) and it is only “$5 off any two adult dinner entrées”

    I love that place and was planing to go there for the celebration (even before I found this great list), but I’ll change my plans now. Honestly, I would’ve felt much better if I didn’t received any offers from them at all! Those $5 are just a joke!

    • Ira

      Sorry, I forgot to ad that was Red Lobster (everybody knows what I’m thinking about, right? :))

  • Aarondesj

    Now I know where to look when I have my birthday next year. I’d love a list of things for kids to do on their birthday. I have two kids and it would be awesome to do a bunch of free things on their birthday. Great post!

  • Jenn

    I went to the Old Spaghetti Factory on my birthday and they didn’t seem to know about the “free meal” on your birthday deal. I did get a free piece of cake though!
