Who doesn’t love birthday freebies?
Birthdays mark major milestones in everyone’s life! As a kid, it was more exciting with all the fun birthday parties and destroying pinatas. But as you get older, you’re just reminded of how fast time flies.
Your birthday is still a great opportunity to get free stuff though and it can be stretched out to birth month when you sign up for birthday reward programs!
Most will require at least 7 days notice before your actual birthday so be sure to sign up as soon as you can. Even if a location isn’t listed here (particularly your local spots), places could still give you birthday freebies so don’t be shy to ask!
You may be asked for your ID to prove it’s your birthday although I’ve never had that happen. Enjoy the free stuff below!
