I’m the kind of gal that has no shame in celebrating my birthday the week before and the entire month. And one of my most favorite things is BIRTHDAY FREEBIES! I have spent years building up my subscriptions. I normally take my birthday off work so I can run around and get my favorites. It’s something I always look forward to because I feel it is a day to treat myself and practice some self-love. Of course I normally throw in a pedicure or massage, and an art gallery because that’s something else I love to do. Sure, it may be just another number but it’s your special day and you deserve to treat yourself too! Which is why I’m sharing my list with you!
- Please note all locations are different. I live in Lincoln, NE. Many restaurants specify the location you can use your offer at so remember this when you are joining birthday clubs.
- If you can join well before your actual birthday. Some businesses will send you “anniversary” freebies which are often similar to your birthday ones, so sign up 6 months before your birthday and you’ll be able to take advantage of freebies at different times of the year.
- If you have Microsoft office or Google Sheets, it helps to make a spreadsheet. As you’ll see in this post, I organize mine by ‘Place’, ‘Offer’, ‘Expiration date’, ‘Coupon Code’ (for those that might coincide with an online order), ‘Print/Mobile’ & ‘Best’ where I star which ones are the ones I want to make sure to use. It’s also nice to do it in a spreadsheet so then you can filter and sort.
- In the past I would just fill out the forms, receive my emails & print them. With companies trying to increase their app & mobile usage & cater more to consumers, I have noticed a large shift in companies requiring you to log in to your app to get and receive your freebies. You might want to make another spreadsheet with usernames & passwords while you sign up to make it easier on yourself in the long run.
Without further ado, I’m going to share with you my list! 😊
Format is: Place – Reward (# of days to use it). Sometimes they send you the reward a few days before your birthday. Mine is January 3rd so these are formulated with expiration date – my birthdate.
