would like a certificate for my birthday today

4 Beth February 19, 2011 at 9:19 PM

Robert, you have to sign up Benihana’s club, as I mentioned. It takes a while to get it and since your birthday is today, you’ll probably not get the opportunity until next year.

5 Pam Bodle June 2, 2011 at 5:01 PM

I have eaten at Benihana’s many times over the years and when my daughter told me about your birthday certificate which she has used I could not resist submitting my name.
I love eating at your establishment, your steak and salad are superb. So hopefully I will be able to visit you this month with my daughter and her boyfriend on my birthday celebration.

6 Beth June 2, 2011 at 7:14 PM

Pam, Make sure you click the link to sign up. I simply list great deals. I’m not associated with Benihana’s, but I do love them too :)

7 nancy robinson July 24, 2011 at 9:41 PM

Nancy Robinson

8 Susan July 25, 2011 at 7:26 PM

I’m sorry to hear you didn’t get your birthday certificate. You will need to write to Benihana about that since I am just a blogger that is trying to help others find good deals. Good luck and Happy Birthday.

9 Dan Marion July 25, 2011 at 9:51 PM

My wife and I love Bennihana!

15 ROLANDA YOUNG September 29, 2011 at 5:03 PM


16 Beth September 29, 2011 at 8:23 PM

Rolanda, You should try contacting Benihana directly. In Good Cents is a website that lists great deals for grocery, restaurants, services, and online, but I don’t have any connection to Benihana. If you follow the link in the post, you’ll be directed to their website. Hope that helps you.

17 Charlie Anderson October 1, 2011 at 8:17 PM

It’s my birthday

18 Beth October 1, 2011 at 10:15 PM

Happy birthday, Charlie. You’re probably too late to get a gift certificate this year, but make sure to click on the link to head over to Benihana to register for your certificate for next year.

19 Celeste pinedo October 11, 2011 at 3:43 AM

My birthday is on October 23 will I receive one for this year

20 Beth October 11, 2011 at 9:46 AM

Celeste, if you head to the page, it talks about if you’re birthday is in the month you make your request. I tried to visit the page, but it’s Benihana’s entire site is timing out for some reason. Must be having some issues right now. But, when you head over to register, you should see the answer to your question.

21 shamika caver November 6, 2011 at 7:50 PM

the food is great……

22 Trenton pollard November 9, 2011 at 9:24 PM

Congratulations. Make sure you click the link to let Benihana know, so they can get you your coupon!

24 Quittney December 5, 2011 at 4:37 PM

27 Beth December 13, 2011 at 5:25 PM

They changed the link, but I just updated it , so it should work for you now!

28 Mike April 16, 2012 at 12:29 AM

Hi Beth, I just signed my daughter up for the $30 birthday Cert. It is April 15th and her birthday is April 30th. Will we get the cert. in time for her Birthday dinner? Thank you.

29 Beth April 16, 2012 at 9:46 AM

Mike, you should. Benihanna’s page says if you register within the month of your birthday to allow up to 2 business days. I know sometimes it can take up to 10 days.

30 Wendy Sherman April 16, 2012 at 6:28 PM

I ‘m already signed up and my birthday is April 19th. Last year I
received an e-mail certificate at the begining of the month.
This year nothing. Please advise.

31 Beth April 17, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Wendy, per Benihana’s website, they send the coupons the first of the month. You may want to check your spam or junk mail and if you can’t find it, contact Benihana on through the contact form on their website or call headquarters. The coupons are sent from headquarters, so your local Benihana’s probably won’t be able to help you. Good luck!

32 Ersler Johnson August 5, 2012 at 10:07 PM

i sign up for this for my birthday!!!!!

33 milagros caceres August 21, 2012 at 12:37 PM

34 Beth August 21, 2012 at 12:56 PM

I recommend you contact Benihanas to see if there’s anything they can do to help you out. Good luck and happy birthday.

35 mary arriola August 22, 2012 at 9:26 PM

today was my first time at Benihana’s and was a great experience, i really enjoy the food, and the staff is friendly , polite, and a nice atmosphere, i want to go back.

36 Beth August 22, 2012 at 10:03 PM

Glad you had fun. I love that restaurant too. Did you sign up for the birthday gift certificate?

37 Carol Feiler August 23, 2012 at 10:59 AM

We registered before for the chef’s table in the name of Samuel Feiler. [EDITED BY MODERATOR] and I was involved as well. Therefore I am submitting membership solely in my name.. I hope to get the birthday certificate that I was promised as my birthday is in two days and we never received the $30. gift certificate… Thank you , Carol Feiler

38 Beth August 23, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Carol, I recommend you contact Benihana about this, because they would be able to help you out. As a site that shares great deals with my readers, I’m not affiliate or associated with most of the companies I mention or promote. The link in this article will take you to the Chef’s Table, which will give you details on how and when they mail the certificates, plus contact information to ask questions. Good luck!

39 anita morris August 28, 2012 at 2:24 PM

40 Beth August 28, 2012 at 2:58 PM

Anita, you’ll have to contact Benihana directly to get your birthday coupon. I was simply sharing this coupon, but am not actually associated with Benihana, nor do I have the coupons. Good luck.

41 Sue Gibson September 14, 2012 at 2:55 PM

44 BARBARA MICHAEL October 3, 2012 at 3:26 PM

I want to sign up for the benihana birthday club and it says that I have an existing email acct. That is impossible, I have never ever applied or gotten any coupons for benihana.

45 Beth October 3, 2012 at 9:37 PM

Barbara, maybe someone who has a similar email address signed up and mistyped their address. You should contact Benihana through their contact link. I’m sure they can remove the email address, so you can sign up again or get you set up.

46 Dexter Pinkey October 8, 2012 at 8:16 AM

please this is my second request and no coupon received and my family and I where planning to have dinner there today in miramar location. I sent my first request on this past Friday

47 Beth October 8, 2012 at 11:35 AM

Dexter, have you contacted Benihana’s? I do share deals and birthday freebies like this on my website, but I’m not associated with Benihana, so I can’t help you if you’re having issues receiving your certificate.

48 MARY J SPINELLA October 9, 2012 at 12:17 PM


49 Beth October 9, 2012 at 2:36 PM

Have you contacted Benihana’s? I told readers about this deal, but I’m not associated with them. You should try contacting them to see if they can help you out. Happy early birthday and good luck.

56 Beth November 11, 2012 at 1:55 PM

Shawna, sorry to hear you didn’t get your certificate. Did you contact Benihana? They are usually very great about helping you out and getting you your birthday certificate. Unfortunate, because I’m not associated with Benihana’s I can’t help you. However, I did remove your email address from your post to protect your privacy, since it was in a public comment on my website. Good luck and happy be-lated birthday!

57 jeremy m clark November 14, 2012 at 11:11 AM

66 sanchez yira November 29, 2012 at 1:09 PM

I love the food it taste so good and is very fresh

67 Ian December 17, 2012 at 11:00 PM

We were at Behihana in Cincinnati tonight with a group of friends for someone’s birthday and they had the birthday coupon. The restaurant manager refused to accept the coupon because the barcode did not print even though it had his name and birthdate on it. The manager went so far as to accuse them of not using a legitimate coupon, even though it had the logo and other information about it. Needless to say, our birthday group will not be going back.

68 Beth December 19, 2012 at 11:24 AM

Ian, I’m so sorry you had a bad experience. Did you share it with Benihana? Maybe call or contact the headquarters. Sometimes they can help you out with the situation.

69 Evelyn Bouchereau December 18, 2012 at 9:43 PM

My Birthday is just a week away and I still didn’t received my $30 printable coupon to go enjoy my birthday at Benihana’s. Can you please let me know what happened to the $30 coupons.?
Thank you

70 Beth December 19, 2012 at 11:21 AM

Evelyn, you’ll have to contact Benihana’s directly with your question. In Good Cents is a website that shares deal from many different restaurants and stores, though we are not associated with any of them. Good luck. P.S. I did edit this comment to remove your personal information, since you left it in a public comment on the website.

71 Evelyn Bouchereau December 18, 2012 at 9:47 PM

My Birthday is December 27 which is next week and want to go to benihanas to enjoy my $30 birthday certificate amongs friends and families and still didn’t get it yet.

100 Rebeca July 16, 2013 at 7:31 PM

Thanks for posting. I’m really excited about this giveaway because my husband just lost his job and it’s hard for us to go out to eat very often. Sometimes I can’t even afford a $5 plugin for my website…because you know, it’s either that or food. We have 10 kids and only 5 of them behave when we’re out in public….so I usually just put the rest of them in front of the TV so I can have some peace and quiet. Anyway, I’m really off topic, but I would love to win this give away….so pleeeeeaze pick me!!! Let me know if there is anything else I need to do. Love your page.

p.s. I have my own blog too. I just wrote a diy post on ironing the perfect pleat. wanna do a share 4 share?

101 Crystal July 16, 2013 at 7:35 PM

Fantastic. I love everything about you.

102 Beth Montgomery July 19, 2013 at 10:23 AM

Rebeca, I’m so sorry to hear about you situation. Luckily, everyone can get a $30 certificate for their birthday. Just follow the steps above in the post to request yours and it will be sent during the month of your birthday.
