So, it is, or was, or will be your birthday. Want to get a lot a fun email with freebies? Sign up for emails from stores, restaurants, or coffee shops that you frequent, and be sure to give them your birthday date if they ask for it. As a result, your inbox will be flooded with birthday love, so much you might not even be able to use it all. Seriously. I just got done celebrating one of the anniversaries of my 29th birthday (I’m not saying which) and I am still stuffed from all the free and discounted food, plus I got loads of coupons to shop with. Below I’m listing 14 fun birthday clubs that offer some birthday freebies from some of my favorite places.
Remember, you must sign up for emails, rewards programs, or club cards in order to receive these. These deals were ones I personally received during January 2013 and are subject to change.
Red Robin e-club rewards you with a FREE birthday burger, no purchase necessary. It also has many other perks, and you can add your kids on your card and get birthday freebies for them as well. More info here: http://redroyalty.redrobin.com
