Summer is our birthday time, my poor husband is the only person in our family of four with a winter birthday. His birthday is basically Christmas, so he misses out on a lot of the goods. My birthday is in June, Sawyer is July, and Liam is late August. Usually I’m treated to all kinds of lovely things; last year my husband went to Jacobs the jeweller for my gifts, I was very lucky! We have had to cope with a lot of unexpected expenses this year so this time round we wanted to cut back a bit. As an alternative, we’re going to really try to make the most of the 200+ Birthday Freebies that are out there! A lot of these require you to sign up for their rewards programs, but in my experience this is no biggie. I suggest signing up before your birthday and making a little schedule based on when coupons expire to maximize your savings. Please note- I try to focus on the best savings opportunities, I didn’t research each free single scoop, milkshake, piece of dessert. You generally have to purchase something else with those deals and you don’t need that much dessert, ha!
Pip’s Donuts- Last year, I had an out of body experience I want to tell you about. Someone recommended a doughnut shop to me, Pip’s. If you know anything about me, then you know I am a doughnut person. I love them, easily my favorite dessert. Pip’s has mini doughnuts that are unique in flavor, and just.. so, so good. I have deleted and retyped my feelings about these doughnuts four times, because there just aren’t the words. On your birthday, you get 12 mini doughnuts for free.
Baskin Robbins- Free 3.2 oz ice cream. You need to sign up for their birthday club, super simple!
Red Robin- a free burger, ya’ll. A FREE BURGER. Might I suggest the bonzai on lettuce?
Moe’s Southwest Grill – A free burrito or bowl on your birthday, not too shabby.
Starbucks– free birthday drink!
Benihana– You’ll get a 30.00 credit towards your meal during your birthday month!
CVS Beauty Rewards- 3.00 extra care bucks. I like to pair this with a coupon deal or snag a free lipstick
Sephora- One of my favorite birthday surprises. No purchase necessary, and you get quality makeup goodies.
Ulta- Another great one! Birthday samples! I got an awesome mascara sample this year!
LEGO VIP- I’ve heard rumors you get great coupons throughout the year and a free minifigure on your birthday. I haven’t tested this one, but plan to sign up next time I need to make a purchase of LEGO Bricks.
