I lived in Melbourne for 10 years and loved discovering cheap eats and good deals.

Boost Juice

With all of the amazing cocktails and cake you’re going to demolish, it’s wise to balance it out with something a little healthier. Sign up to the Vibe Club and receive a complimentary Boost juice. That should keep your body happy.

Taco Bill

Various locations

One of life’s unwritten rules is that ‘you can never have too much Mexican.’ As a member of Taco Bill’s club you’ll score a complimentary main meal for your birthday as well as a slice of birthday cake. All you have to do is sign up here.

Pacinos Italian Family Restaurant

Epsom Road, Flemington

One of the best meals of the bunch comes from Pacinos Italian Restaurant. The lucky birthday girl/gal gets a $30 voucher. Pictured here is the spinach, pumpkin and goat’s curd gnocchi – and yes, it is as delicious as it looks. Pizza, pasta and schnitzels are also available.

To redeem the birthday voucher, simply sign up to their mailing list. You will need to sign up at least two weeks and one day before your birthday. Groups of 6+ will also receive a complimentary birthday cake.

San Churros

Various locations

Nothing says ‘I’m an adult and I’ll eat what I want’ more than tucking into San Churros’ deep-fried chocolatey goodness. Grab complimentary churros for two by downloading their app and signing up to their club.

You will need to be a verified el SOCIAL member and have made a full-priced purchase in the last 12 months prior to your birthday. If you haven’t made a purchase in the 12 months prior, simply spend $5 in-store in the same transaction to redeem the offer.

It’s ok, we won’t judge if you go alone. Enjoy some of Melbourne’s best Mexican food before finishing at San Churros for dessert.


Various locations

Some like it hot, but for those who don’t then Chatime will give you a complimentary birthday bubble tea. Download their app and signup for their Loyal Tea program.

Come your birthday, you’ll receive one completely free. Grab your tea, and wander around enjoying some more free things to do in Melbourne.

Spud Bar

Various locations

Potato has to be one of the best carb sources going around. Add to it some meat, veggies and cheese and it takes gold. Spud Bar will give you a free salad when you pick up a card from in-store and then register here. You are able to claim the offer two days either side of your birthday.
