Birthday Freebies

Happy Birthday to Me!

Recently, I had a birthday. I just love all the birthday freebies that pour in my inbox (& a couple in my mailbox) during March. Generally, you need to keep an eye on your junk mail during your birthday month because that is where a lot may end up. But as a general rule of thumb you just need to pay attention on the 1st of your birthday month, a week before your birthday and on your birthday. Those are the typical times that businesses seem to email out your offers.

I have only signed up for things near me (or was near me at one time). All of these were received in my email unless otherwise noted.

Starbucks (postcard) - Free Drink
Aveda (postcard) - Free Body Care Product or Personal Parfume Blend (up to $25)
Godfathers - Free Mini Pizza
Noodles & Co. - Free Bowl of Noodles
O'Charley's - $5 coupon
Buffalo Wild Wings - Free Dessert
Cold Stone Creamery - BOGO Creation
Boston Market - Free Dessert (with purchase of entree)
Famous Dave's - BOGO Entrees
Ben & Jerry's - Free Scoop of Ice Cream & $3 off a Cake
Arby's - Free Shake (with any purchase)
Champps - Free Dessert (with purchase of entree)
bd's Mongolian - Free Stir-fry Meal
Chili's - Free Brownie Sundae (with purchase of entree)
Origins - $10 off $25+
Landry's Select Club - $25 towards your check at any of their restaurants (I have paid to be part of this restaurant club)
TGI Friday's  - Free Dessert (with purchase of an entree)
Papa Murphy's - Free Cookie Dough (with any pizza purchase)
Benihana's - $30 towards any meal (valid M-Th only)
Starbucks Ice Cream - $1 Coupon for 2 Flavors
Buca di Beppo - Free Brownie Sundae
Qdoba - BOGO Entree
The Kernel - Free Dessert or Fountain Treat (with purchase of an entree)
Old Country Buffet - BOGO Adult Entree
Pizza Ranch - $5 worth of Vittles (food!)
Moksha Yoga - Free class (on birthday only)
Lancome - 5 full size Lipsticks for free (with $35 purchase)
Redbox - Free Rental
Wendy's - $1 off Coupon
Kwik Trip - Free Coffee & Donut
Culver's - Free Sundae
AMC Theatres - Free Large Drink
Applebee's - Free Dessert (with entree purchase)
Old Navy - $10 off $50

I don't know if they got missed in my junk mail or not, but in the past I have usually gotten a Free Drink from Caribou Coffee and BOGO Blizzard from Dairy Queen.

Plus there are always lots of places you can go to on your actual birthday that make give you a free dessert/song/drink/etc. just for asking.

If you are signing up for any of these, just remember that most companies require you to sign up a month or two in advance.
