Another lap around the sun is reason for celebration and the perfect opportunity to fill your boots with generous birthday offers across the city. As your milestone comes about this year, leave your wallet at home and make some room for free burgers, burritos, coffee and doughnuts. Just be prepared to sign up to a loyalty program and don't forget to bring some photo identification.

KRISPY KREME

Those who are part of Krispy Kreme's inner circle can nab a free four pack of fresh doughnuts on their birthday. To be eligible for the offer you must be a pre-existing subscriber of 'The Inner Circle' up to four weeks prior to your birthday. The Original Glazed doughnuts are redeemable in-store at Manukau, Auckland Airport and Chancery Square.

BURGERFUEL

To receive a free birthday burger from BurgerFuel all you have to do is sign up to the VIB (Very Important Burger Connoisseur) program. The birthday burger is the main perk, but deals . Make sure you sign up sooner rather than later though, we aren't able to give people a birthday burger who sign up on or the day before their birthday.

MEXICALI FRESH

Fancy a burrito more than a burger? Mexicali's free birthday meals are awarded to subscribers of its Cabana Club at the beginning of their birthday month. To receive the meal up to the value of $15.50, you must be a registered prior to your birthday month and have made a purchase in the six months prior to your birthday month. Burritos, tacos, nachos and quesadillas await.

DR RUDI'S

If you're looking to start your birthday night off on the right foot, then how about downloading the New Zealand Venue Co. app on your phone? The bonus here is that you'll score $20 free credit to use at any of the hops group's venues two weeks before your birthday. The deal is valid at heaps of NZVC pubs, restaurants and bars throughout the country, including Dr Rudi's rooftop bar in Auckland.

MEXICO

Much-loved cheap and cheerful eatery Mexico dishes up a whole lot of goodness with its Love Mexico app. To start, subscribers receive free hand-made totopos chips with every visit. The Mexican joint also throws in $10 credit on your birthday, which is enough to score one of the mouthwatering tacos. That's the first two courses sorted — and it'd be rude not to add an order of fried chicken.cp-line

FARRO FRESH

Loading up on supplies at Farro Fresh for your birthday party? Why not take a break from your shopping adventure and unwind with a complimentary coffee? By joining the boutique supermarket's loyalty program you'll receive not only exclusive member specials throughout the year, but a celebratory free cup of frothy java on your birthday.

BURGER WISCONSIN

Just like its Mexican sister chain, Burger Wisconsin's free birthday meal is awarded to subscribers of its loyalty program at the beginning of their birthday month. To receive the meal up to the value of $15, you must be a registered prior to your birthday month and have made a purchase in the six months prior to your birthday month.

NANDO'S

South African-born chicken joint Nando's send members of its PERi-Perks program a $15 voucher every year for their birthday. You have 30 days to use the credit, which is plenty of time to decide whether you're going to feast on flame-grilled chicken or one seriously large order of chips.

HABITUAL FIX

Prefer to toast your latest lap around the sun with something a little healthier? Salad bar Habitual Fix will whip you up a free smoothie on your birthday on the presentation of an 'Addicts' membership card. Load up on all the fruits and vegetables with the 'Green Machine' or down a peanut butter and salted caramel concoction made with Pic's.

cp-line

DENNY'S

You can't mention free birthday goodies without including trusty late-night family restaurant Denny's. The global all-American diner chain has been dishing out complimentary birthday meals since its first opened  in Manukau in 1988. Roll up on your day of celebration — even it's at 3am for pancakes — and dine for free. You just need to be with at least one paying customer.
