Enjoy More Than Just Free Cake on Your Birthday: 33 Birthday Freebies Revealed
You probably know that many of your favorite restaurants offer free birthday desserts if you are celebrating on your special day, but did you know that you can actually get a lot more than free cake? Today is actually my birthday and my email inbox has been flooding with offers for free items like meals, lip gloss, and yes, even an eye brow wax!
A few tips on requesting birthday freebies:
- Sign up with an alternative email address through gmail, yahoo, etc so that you can use that address just for free stuff. You’ll get a lot of offers, so it will help de-clutter your personal box.
- Many of these FREE offers require that you sign up for the emails in advance, so my recommendation is take some time now and sign up for ones that you want – then when your birthday comes around you can be surprised with all your new offers.
- Many offers also come with a freebie for signing up for the newsletter or other promotions throughout the year, so check your email often.
- Most offers are good for a time period, so you don’t have to get all of them on your actual birthday
- If you don’t see your favorite location here, that doesn’t mean they don’t have something – you can always ask if they have birthday specials at the restaurant or store.
