Some of the best Winnipeg birthday freebies are no longer available, such as the free stir fry at Mongo’s, free buffet at Ye’s, free Whopper at Burger King, and free smoothie at Booster Juice.

However, we saw a reddit post in February 2022 where people commented that these birthday freebies might be available in Winnipeg (although we haven’t verified them):

* Author note: Some of these Winnipeg birthday freebies may have been temporarily or permanently discontinued, so please call the business to confirm before you go.

      Thanks, I phoned Mongo’s to confirm and then removed them from the list. They used to have a free deluxe meal with soup and salad a few years ago with ID. I guess it was too good to last, especially with the capacity limits of the past year.

  • Matthew H Stevenson

    Two more to add: both Booster Juice and Mary Brown’s Chicken have b’day freebies. In both cases you must register on their website. Then they will e-mail you a coupon. Mary Brown’s is for a Big Mary sandwich, good for a week. Booster Juice sends you a coupon for a large smoothie which you have 6 months to use.

    • Kevin Strong

      Thanks for the suggestions. I hope to get many more from people.

      My list of Winnipeg Birthday Freebies was almost twice as long in 2018. I had to remove many of them because they stopped offering their birthday promotion (many of them long before the pandemic hit).

      Booster Juice was on my list and it was a nice birthday treat for several years, but I received e-mail from them at the end of 2018 saying that anyone who signed up after then would not get a birthday freebie and the ones who were already subscribed would only get one more birthday freebie in 2019. I did not get a coupon from them in 2020.

      I am also signed up for Mary Brown and I didn’t get anything from them in 2020. It could be temporary due to the pandemic, but I saw a post on a Winnipeg money-saving Facebook group where someone told me they stopped doing it, so I took it off the list.

    I don’t think dairy Queen does the birthday blizzard anymore…. I didn’t see that email come in for me last week and I’m subscribed to their newsletter

    • Kevin Strong

      Thanks, Renata. I got a BOGO Blizzard & cake coupon last September when it was my birthday, but something might have changed since then.
      Also, they have regularly amazing coupons on their app.

    Casinos of Wpg. now give birthday customers a scratch card (@ Customer Service) good for one of 4 different offers. You scratch and get whatever offer is revealed.
