Compared to Japan where I am living, Singapore is superior when it comes to birthday deals. Merchants are much more generous and will to “invest” for customer loyalty.

I was trying to take advantage of this, but only to be met with sneaky conditions, like requiring x number of paying customers to get the so-called deal. Hello? That's just a regular deal, or not even one since most buffets offer some kind of something-for-one deal.

Since it is my birthday month, I thought I would personally try out or at least read all the terms of the deals and see which are too good to be true.


  • All rewards are available in the birthday month unless stated
  • All prices are in SGD and NETT

Tier A: The best birthday deals in Singapore

Let's start with the best ones. These typically expect you to sign up for a free membership, which is fair since they are businesses, after all. But you get something completely free, with no (paying) conditions at all.

Tier B: The good birthday deals in Singapore

These typically expect you to make some kind of purchase to qualify as a member, and subsequently the reward. I've found the rewards for these worth it, as the result is usually a 50% or more discount.

Tier C: The non-deals (don't bother)

These aren't deals, but marketing schemes. Some are below that by telling you the condition only after you become a member. Sneaky!

Most of them use the get one free for every x number of paying adults formula, which you can usually get even outside birthday. Underwhelming, to say the least. I wouldn't recommend any of these unless you were already planning to visit them with friends.

There are a whole bunch of other merchants in this lackluster category that are not worth my time to add. If don't see it in tier A or B, most likely, it isn't worth it. Leave a comment if you find something that deserves to be shared.

Tier X: Non-existent, unable to verify, or defunct deals

Unfortunately, I was led onto many dead ends from those listicles that promised me a free treat! Here are some that I read about but verified to be no longer available.

Auntie Anne's1-for-1 pretzelThe app was not available in the SG iOS store and pretty sure the rewards program is no longer available. I see the QR code to the member's program taped over at the Auntie Anne's near me.
A&WFree root beerWas unable to find a way to join the Mug Club, and think it's no longer available.
Spizza$20 voucherI signed up before my birthday during my birthday month and did not see the voucher on my rewards page.

Well, that's all. Hope you at least got a few free drinks from this. Happy birthday! If you find any deals that you personally tried and are worth sharing, do leave a comment so this can be a solid list for all.
