I have searched near and far to find some of the best birthday freebies out there. The opportunities are endless, but you need to sign up in advance to take advantage of many of the deals that are offered. When signing up, make sure you check the box to allow them to send you correspondence! Some will even send you a welcome gift as well as your birthday freebie. Most of the offers you will receive are valid for 7-14 days, so you don’t technically need to visit on your birthday — this works out nicely for those of us that celebrate “Birthday Month!”
Have a friend or family member with a birthday coming up? Save them some money by sending them this link or sharing on Facebook!
Note: You will receive an influx of emails from all of these brands. One way to manage this is to create a separate email account, just for discounts. Another way (what I do) is to just ignore and archive them and then when it’s my birthday month, search “Happy Birthday” in my Gmail.
