I love to celebrate my birthday at Applebee's. But with a family of 5, it tends to get expensive. Rather than give up my favorite birthday spot, I signed our family up for the Applebee's Email Club. Not only does the Applebee's Email Club save us money on our birthdays, there are special perks to enjoy on regular, non-birthday occasions as well.

The perks

As a member of Applebee's Email Club, you'll get a special coupon for your birthday. Coupons may vary, but in the past I've received a coupon for a free entrée! Score! Besides birthday goodies, you'll also get special offers and exclusive coupons. I mean, who doesn’t want $3 off a meal, free appetizers, free drinks, and BOGO entree coupons? These are just a few examples—plus, you get sneak peeks at upcoming menu items just for being a member.

More ways to save at Applebee’s

Besides their Email club, Applebee's also offers special deals for the entire family.

  • Kids eat free: Kids eat free Monday and Tuesday nights at participating locations. Select restaurants also offer Kids’ Nights where a variety of kids’ meals are only $1.99.
  • Date night: Want to save on date night? Visit Applebee's in the evening (typically starts at 9 or 10 P.M.) and enjoy ½ price appetizers with the purchase of any beverage until closing. My hubby and I love sharing the cheeseburger sliders, and the spinach and artichoke dip is to die for!
  • Applebee’s Perks program: Just by signing up for Applebee’s Perks Program you’ll get a free appetizer. Like most rewards programs, you earn points each time you go to Applebee’s by providing your server with your phone number. Free menu items, another birthday reward, and additional discounts are just a few standard perks.
