Birthday freebies information from the noon news

Posted June 19, 2014


Welcome to everyone joining us from the noon news on WRAL-TV today! Here are links to some great Birthday Freebies websites and a list of many of the freebies I received for my birthday!

What are your favorite birthday freebies?



Birthday freebie websites

Heyitsfree.net has put together a 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. He updates the Birthday Freebies List regularly and you should be able to find plenty of appealing offers.  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.

You can also check out the Birthday Freebies list from www.birthdayfreebies.com for a number of great freebies to enjoy on your big day!

    If you show up at Brig's on your birthday with an ID showing your birth date, they will give you a free meal when you pay the cashier. LOVE that one! So good!
