Birthday Freebies!

Posted May 4, 2015

Did you know that you can score tons of great freebies including free meals during the week of your birthday? Here's a link to a long list of birthday freebies to sign up for before your next birthday. I have also included a list of all the birthday freebies I received last week.

What are your favorite birthday freebies?

Birthday freebie list has put together a very long list of companies that offer birthday freebies including clickable links to sign up for the offers! 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. Sign up as soon as possible because some freebies require that you sign up a certain period of time before your birthday (like a week or month before) in order to get the offer for that year. And remember that not all locations are participating so you may want to call ahead to verify before you head to the store. See the full list including clickable links at

Last week, I received e-mails and coupons via snail mail for free meals, free meal with drink purchase, free bagel with cream cheese, free ice cream, free cookies, BOGO meal coupons, free doughnut and more for my birthday!
