I’ve got to be honest with you guys. I make a really big deal out of birthdays. I just love a good birthday celebration!
One of the great things about having a birthday is free stuff! I’m not talking about gifts, either. I’m talking about all the businesses that will give you free stuff on your birthday.
This is especially awesome if you’re on a tight budget. You get nice stuff at no cost!
Here are some popular companies that offer a free birthday treat. For all of these, you’ll need to sign up to an email list or join a free rewards program to get your birthday treat.
1. Starbucks: Free drink, plus 15% off anything you buy in their online store.
2. Baskin-Robbins: Free ice cream!
3. IHOP: Free stack of pancakes—and they’ll give you a free stack for just signing up too!
4. Redbox: Free rental, plus another free rental on the anniversary of the day you signed up.
5. ULTA Beauty: Gifts rotate each quarter. Past birthday freebies have included a mini mascara, hairspray and eye shadow.
6. Sephora: Free mini gift set from Marc Jacobs Beauty or Fresh.
7. Subway: Free 6-inch sub and drink.
8. Moe’s Southwest Grill: Free birthday burrito.
9. Dairy Queen: Free blizzard!
10. Chili’s: Free chips and guacamole.
This short list is just the start. So many other companies offer free birthday gifts—including Chick-fil-A, Cracker Barrel, LongHorn Steakhouse and Panera Bread.
So the next time your birthday rolls around, go out and enjoy it a little more with these freebies! You don’t even have to work it into the budget! Happy birthday to you.
