Birthday freebies!

Posted May 1, 2012

One of the many things I love about birthdays, in addition to being around another year to celebrate them, is the fact that there are many companies who will give me flat out freebies just for getting older. Free meals, coupons, cards and more are some of the goodies I have received on my birthday after signing up on their websites. Since this is my birthday month, I thought it was a good time to chat about all those great freebies so you, too, can score that elusive free lunch! has put together a very long list of companies who offer birthday freebies. I highly recommend you look through it to see what freebies the various companies are offering and then sign up for the ones you want. I received free lunch, free ice cream, free cookies and more for my birthday! Click HERE for the list of birthday freebies.

Some of the participating companies include Auntie Annie's, Breugger's, Chili's, Dairy Queen, IHOP, Moe's, Orange Julius, Quiznos, TGI Fridays and so many more!  Another benefit is that when you sign up with these companies, many give you a freebie or high value discount coupon right then and there.  You don't even have to wait until your birthday. And, they often give you coupons throughout the year!

What birthday freebies have you all received in the past?

Happy birthday to all the other May babies out there!

    Biscuitville emailed me a free biscuit coupon for my birthday.

    I actually got quite a few grocery coupons emailed to me my birthday month.

    My birthday was just 2 weeks ago ( April 18th) and the best freebie I received and that didn't expire the day after my bday was Starbucks! Even, if you get a free meal, unless you're alone, you still have to pay for everybody else's which doesn't turn out to be such a good deal, to me.

    Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts sends coupons for free drinks and Panera bread loads a free treat to my card. Yummy! By the way Happy Birthday Mrs. Prosser!

    My birthday was last Saturday, but I loved all the freebies I received! Sephora gives out a great lip balm set, Container store gives a free reusable bag (didn't redeem it though), free meals at a variety of restaurants (just didn't use them)... went to dinner in Knightdale on Sunday and mentioned my birthday in passing to the waiter, who thought my 14 year old sister was my kid even though I'm 21, and he brought me a large dessert to share with my family when he went to get the bill! I love birthday freebies. I went to the Michael's in Brier Creek and found they have birthday coupons now, and the spa I go to does 10% off if it's your birthday month in Brier Creek as well!
