It’s BERday!!!

What a wonderful weekend it has been thus far! Thank you all for the happy wishes and calls I received. I just wanted to share several links to businesses that offer FREEBIES just for being born!!! I discovered a few of these deals years ago and people are always asking me to give them a list. So here it goes:

No purchase necessary but you will need to sign up for a rewards account at least 30 days before your birthday. Your reward is any free item so make it count. Can I get a VENTI please?

You get a free beverage just for enrolling. The other terms of their rewards program are quite convoluted as not all DD locations participate (a good amount). The week of your birthday you will receive an email with a beverage coupon for redemption. It worked last year so I’ll try it again this year. No purchase necessary.

A free sub and drink each year. I signed up for this one the day before and got it the next day. No purchase necessary.

Free quest dip upon sign up and a free burrito on birthday. No purchase necessary for their new rewards program. Must download app on mobile phone.

I scream, you scream, we all scream… ICE CREAM! But only one free small scoop. I usually get an email every year weeks before my birthday but nothing this year. Hmmm???

Free cup cake after sign up and on BD. No purchase required.

Any regular (7″) Wich free and a free beverage with sign up. It’s okay to redeem on the same day. No purchase necessary.

Sign up for rewards card and earn a makeup related birthday gift. Usually some kind of small travel item. This year I received a mini lip gloss/ blush duo…love it!

Now this site is already magical on any regular day. Have you heard of Ebates? It is an awesome place to score some cash back on your purchases. Online shopping is one of my preferred ways to shop. For three main reasons, I usually find better deals than in store, larger inventory options, and free shipping to my door. Plus you earn an additional 15% back on every purchase during the ENTIRE WEEK of your BD.

Go ahead and try it out here! You’ll earn $10 after your first purchase of $25 or more. I mean you were gonna spend it anyways. So just go for it.

Although some of these deals expire a day or two after your birthday, most of them last the whole month. I recommend spacing your freebies out so you can maximize your celebratory time.
