Best birthday freebies in Canada

Pumpkin spice milk tea and taro milk tea from Chatime Canada


Chatime is one of my absolute fave bubble tea spots, and they offer a free handcrafted drink on your birthday.

You have to register your birthday on the Chatime app, and you’ll get the free birthday drink loaded onto your card 7 days before your birthday.

You do have to make a minimum purchase of $2.50 before your birthday in order to get the free drink, and it’s valid for 7 days before and after your birthday.

The Signature Milk Tea is my fave drink at Chatime, but I also love their Thai Milk Tea!

The Alley bubble tea in downtown Toronto at Yonge-Dundas Square

The Alley

The Alley is another one of my fave bubble tea spots, and they also offer a free drink on your birthday.

You just have to have the app on your phone, and you can only claim it on your actual birthday!

The Deerioca Fever with fresh milk is my go-to drink at The Alley, but I love trying their seasonal drinks as well.

I love how aesthetically pleasing and Instagrammable their stores are!

Starbucks also offers a free drink or breakfast sandwich for your birthday with the app, though it’s only good for the day of your birthday.

You have to register for the Starbucks Rewards program at least 7 days before your birthday, as well as make a purchase using the card before your birthday.

You also have to claim it at a standalone Starbucks location – it doesn’t work at certain Starbucks locations (such as inside grocery stores)!

One of my go-to drinks is the Caramel Macchiato (iced or hot), and their cold brews are amazing as well.

Tim Hortons

Can’t get enough caffeine, or just looking for some free breakfast?

Tim Hortons offers a free drink (worth 70-100 points) or free breakfast sandwich on your birthday.

You’ll have to download the Tims Rewards app to claim your birthday freebie!

They also offer $3 off an ice cream cake if you’re part of the Club 31 program.

This includes their Assorted Sub (my personal fave), Veggie and Cheese, Ham Sub, and Pizza Sub!

We especially love their pastas and pizzas, and their appetizers are pretty good as well!

You can get a free dessert on your birthday if you sign up for their MyBP Loyalty Program.


Kelsey’s is another great Canadian restaurant chain, and they also offer free dessert on your birthday if you sign up for their emails.

Another awesome perk if you sign up for their emails: free spinach dip with the purchase of an entrée!
