The Best Birthday Freebies #treatyoself
October 4, 2015
I'll be honest, birthdays are no fun past like 25. You can finally rent a car and then it's all downhill from there. So instead of sulking, why not treat yo'self? I like to take full advantage of birthday freebies each year. The best things in life are indeed free, especially when it's your birthday.
Here's my Top 5 picks for some of my Favorite Birthday Freebies. I'll definitely be enjoying some of these today.
1. Free Coffee
Start your day with a nice free hand crafted beverage. Almost all the top coffee chains have some sort of loyalty program that gives you a free drink on your birthday. So it's worth signing up on the email list of your favorite coffee joint to enjoy this perk! Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, and Caribou, to name a few, all offer this perk.
2. Shop till you drop
Lots of stores offer you discounts for your birthday to entice you to come in and drop some $$$.
Anthropologie will send you a 15% off coupon in the month of your birthday and DSW will send you $5 off, so you best hit the mall and freshen up your look. You just have to join their loyalty programs-easy peasy.
While you are cruising about the mall, swing over to Sephora and claim your free birthday gift. Whether you order on line or drop by in store, they usually have a decent little gift of mini samples for your birthday. So don't forget to sign up to be a Beauty insider.
So now it's lunchtime and there are seriously like over 100 places that offer discounts or free meals on your birthday. Many of them are fast food places or chains. Just type in birthday freebies in google and you will get the mother load of lists.
My favorite food freebies though have always been local joints back in Connecticut. We have two specific places in my home town that offer free wings on your birthday. One that actually does free wings of how old you are. Turning 71? You get 71 free wings. It's pretty legit.
But my top 3 stand out food freebies this year include Bucca di Beppo, Jamba Juice, and Jersey Mikes.
Bucca Di Beppo actually sent me a free entree coupon just for signing up to their email list plus another $20 off for my birthday. Pretty sweet deal.
Jamba Juice does a free smoothie on your birthday. And Jersey Mikes (my new favorite pregnancy sandwich destination) does a free sub and drink on your birthday. Not bad at all.
4. Time for Dessert?
Again there are a ton of dessert food freebies out there for your birthday but the best one yet is a Free cone from Ben and Jerry’s. I mean come on....Perfection. Just sign up for their email newsletter and enjoy the sweet sweet Cookie Dough!
5. Make it a movie Night
Finish your night off with a little free entertainment with your significant other with a free rental from Red Box on your birthday.
That is.. unless you are 21 then you go out and dance on some bars and take some tequila shots for me. I'll be on the couch with my pregnant self, enjoying some Ben and Jerry's and watching some Romantic Comedy that my husband is forced to watch because it's my birthday :)
Happy Birthday to me....#treatyoself
