Some of our favourite places across Singapore provide perks to birthday boys and girls all year long. Who cares if you have to sign up for a free membership or an email newsletter or two? From foodie freebies to telco deals, scroll on for all the ways you can celebrate!

There are many more dining deals for birthdays, but we have sussed out the best ones which we think get you the most bang for your buck. By the way, hotpot chain Hai Di Lao doesn’t actually check your ID when you tell them it’s your birthday. So do whatever you want with that information.
If you have old folks, we’d recommend you to celebrate their birthdays at Ikkousha, as you’ll get as many free gyozas as the birthday person’s age. This means if they are 90, you get 90 free gyozas. Yay!
Save more when you use the right credit card
Beyond getting free stuff on your birthday, you can also get more value for your total spend by paying with a credit card that gives you bonus rewards, air miles, or cashback.
Here are some of the best credit cards in the market right now for dining.
|Singtel||Various birthday deals|
|StarHub||Various birthday deals (download app to discover)|
|M1||Various birthday deals|
The reason why we don’t have specific deals for each telco is because they usually switch up their birthday promotions and discounts throughout the year.
As of 19 January 2021, Singtel subscribers can get birthday privileges such as 15% off all Browhaus services (excluding semi-permanent services), free entry to Madame Tussauds and free lunch/dinner buffet at Suki-Suki Thai Hot Pot during your birthday month (with a minimum of four diners).
If you’re an M1 subscriber, treat yourself to 1-for-1 ice cream at Andersen’s Ice Cream and get 30% off English Afternoon Tea at Lobby Lounge, Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel.
|Singapore Zoo/Jurong Bird Park/River Safari/Night Safari|
|Resorts World Sentosa||Various deals||Within three months of birthday|
|Wild Wild Wet||Free admission||Birthday month||Only for NTUC / nEbO Plus! Members|
It’s raining deals at Resorts World Sentosa, where birthday peeps who are RWS Invites Members can get freebies such as a cocktail at Hard Rock Café and pancake batter at Slappy Cakes.
If you plan to celebrate your special day at Sentosa, you’ll be glad to know that there are also promotions for various attractions like 1-for-1 ride packages at HeadRock VR and 1-for-1 admission tickets to Trick Eye Museum.
