Take advantage of these Melbourne birthday freebies, and you’ll be full until next year.

Joyeux anniversaire! Buon compleanno! Happy birthday! Okay, now that you’ve blown the candles out, it’s time to take advantage of some of the super sweet birthday freebies on offer in Melbourne. No matter what age you’re turning, everyone likes a little gift.

Most of the treats on offer require that you join the company’s membership club, so if you don’t want to spend your whole birthday filling out forms, it’s a good idea to sign yourself up in advance. With that in mind, there are easily enough free snacks available to keep you fed all day long. Grab your friends, charge your phone, and go get yourself some free eats.

Hungry Jacks

  • Free Whopper burger 

This is probably one of the better known Melbourne birthday freebies. On your birthday (or anytime during the three days prior) get a free Whopper burger by signing up on the company’s app. And they’re not exactly checking IDs, so who’s to say you couldn’t just sign up anytime? Just a thought.


  • Free pie

What’s a better Aussie birthday treat than a pie? Join the Jester’s VIPie Club and you’ll be invited to take your pick of the lot on your birthday, with all kinds of meat, vegetarian, and even dessert options available. 

Pacinos Italian Family Restaurant 

  • Free meal up to $30

Most of the Melbourne birthday freebies on this list are grab-and-go, but not this one. At Pacinos Italian Family Restaurant in Flemington, they’ll treat you right. As a member, you’ll receive a free meal up to $30, which you can also enjoy up to two weeks after your birthday. Take your choice of a whole host of classic pastas. Just make sure you bring three friends (necessary to activate the offer).

Mad Mex

  • Free burrito

This year, why don’t you stick your candles in a free burrito? That’s right. If you’re a Mad member, this future could be yours. And the best part is the offer is available for the whole month after your birthday, so there’s no rush to head on down there. 


  • Free large pizza

Without a doubt, this is one of the most valuable birthday freebies in Melbourne, and it also serves as great inspiration to throw a pizza party. Crust members receive a free large pizza on their birthday. Just make sure you create your account at least a month before the actual day, and boom: you’ll be eating good.

Spud Bar

  • Free spud or salad

All the potato people out there, this one’s for you. Secret Society members can claim a free spud or salad from the Spud Bar menu on their birthday. 

Hello Harry

  • Free burger 

Name a better birthday lunch than a free burger. Oh, you can’t? Well we can’t either. Simply sign up to HH Club for free and snag some juicy, meaty goodness courtesy of Harry himself. 



  • Free juice

  • Free tea

Join Chatime’s Loyal-Tea program, and help yourself to a free tea with one mix-in on your birthday. Keep in mind to secure this deal you will have to provide photo ID, so don’t try any funny business here. 

Hudsons Coffee

  • Free small coffee

You will not only receive a free coffee every year on your birthday when you sign up for Hudson’s Coffee’s loyalty program, but you’ll also get a free coffee immediately. There’s also a feature that allows you to order online and skip the queue. Yes please!
