Thursday thoughts: Birthday freebies

Posted May 19, 2011 9:18 a.m. EDT

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 I had a birthday a couple weeks ago, I thought it was a good time to chat about all those great freebies so you, too, can score that elusive free lunch!

Heyitsfree.net 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.

What birthday freebies have you all received in the past?

Happy birthday to all the other May babies out there!
