I love birthdays. My son and I basically want to celebrate our birthdays all month. I’m here to share with you ways to celebrate WITHOUT spending money! So many amazing businesses offer birthday freebies- you just have to know which ones and how to get them.
Here’s a BIG tip. Get the app for the businesses you frequent and/or sign up for their email list. BUT- make sure you update your profile to include your birthday! The birthday question isn’t always in the “required” questions, so login to your profile and make sure your birthday is listed.
I am going to list the birthday freebies I received this year below (and a few I found recently), broken into the following categories: food, dessert, and non-food offers.
If you are looking for birthday freebies just for kids, you can find those here: Birthday Freebies for Kids.
