Birthday freebies list

Posted May 2, 2016

Did you know that you can score tons of great freebies including free meals during the month of your birthday?

Every year I post a reminder during my birthday week that you can enjoy some fabulous freebies and discounts from tons of restaurants and retailers.

What are your favorite birthday freebies every year?

Birthday freebie list

Heyitsfree.net 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 the list 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.

I also love that many of the offers are valid for a week to a month so I have plenty of time to redeem them before they expire.

See the full list including clickable links at Heyitsfree.net.

Freebies I have received so far this week

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

Although I won't be using all of them, my kids are certainly enjoying the treats!

Here are a few of the offers I have received so far this week:
