CAN YOU REALLY GET FREE STUFF ON YOUR BIRTHDAY?

I don't volunteer my age, but I'll share it when asked.
Today's my birthday, and I share it with Casey Affleck, Yvette Nicole Brown and a lot of YouTube stars I've never heard of. 

People ask me all the time if it's really possible to get a lot of free stuff on your birthday.  That's an emphatic "yes you can"!


Red Robin in Apex, NC


Ruby Tuesday in Fuquay Varina, NC, and my finger-sorry!
Years ago, it was easy to walk into an establishment, tell them it was your birthday, and you'd get serenaded with a free dessert. 

Now, many businesses encourage you to sign up online and they'll honor your birthday, but very few actually follow-through.  But you do get plenty of emails telling you about new products or how to get a 25% discount.  Some, you never hear anything - ever.

Anyway, here's a few companies who really do offer up those birthday freebies pretty consistently.

Just in case you're wondering what I'll be doing today.  All of the places listed above, I've visited throughout the month, so I'll be clipping coupons and putting them neatly in a binder, which is long overdue.  I started yesterday, and managed to get through 1/4 of them that have been sitting in a box piled up. This project will take at least another dang 4 hours, but it must be done to maintain my sanity and get some order. 

I'll finish up Brad Thor's action-filled latest novel, Use of Force, then relax with a cheeseburger of course,  and watch LIVE PD with Dan Abrams.  I lead such an exciting life. (lol)
Happy Saturday and HUGE Hugs!

  3. Happy Birthday!

    Del Taco also offers a free birthday milkshake if you sign up for their birthday promotions. They've sent me an email with a printable coupon for a free milkshake every year for the past few years.

  6. Happy Birthday my dear! :)) I hope you have fun with your book! My last birthday was spent with food poisoning, so you are leading a much more exciting life that me lol... ;) I used to go to my favourite pub and I would get a free beer on my birthday. Haven't done that in many years though!

  10. Happy birthday! Years ago I left my email with a restaurant in a different city. I get birthday offers every year, but they don't have a restaurant locally :-(

  12. Oh yes, the birthday perks. I love that our nearest bookstore gives you a free book coupon for your birthday if you sign up for their email alerts. There used to be a restaurant around here that would give you the percentage off your meal for your birthday years- my husband's 92 year old grandmother thought it was a hoot to eat there. ;)

    Happy birthday, Ro! I like the kicked back birthday plan you have.

    1. Now it sounds like I need to be hanging out with your hubby's grandmother on her birthday. Sounds like tons of fun! That's a great idea for a bookstore to do that on birthdays. You're blessed to have that for sure. It was an interesting day for sure. (lol) Happy Saturday!

  13. Happy Birthday RO, I rarely take advantage of Birthday perks, either not convenient to me or have something else planned. But I do on a few!

    1. I'm with you on that Debbie. I'm obsessed with freebies, but admit that if they were too far out of my way, I'd pass, as well. Happy Saturday!

  14. Happy birthday Ro! My favorite is the Red Robin freebie. They're my favorite burgers - especially the one with the candied bacon. I get the Ulta and Sephora gifts but didn't know about the others. Sounds like you'll be having a fun birthday month!

    1. Red Robin does have some awesome burgers and unlimited fries - yes! That's great that you can take advantage of the Ulta and Sephora gifts. I try to take advantage as much as possible, but only because they're pretty close to where I live. Wouldn't be worth it if I had to travel all across the country. Happy Saturday!

  15. I need to up my birthday game! I haven't done a single thing freebie-wise for mine. Maybe while we're traveling this next week :D

  16. Happy birthday! I've never thought about claiming freebie stuff for my bday. I always hear about it after my bday has passed and forget all about it the following year. So happy you posted this since my bday is in a few weeks! LoL I just need to figure out if some of these places are close to me.

    1. Hey Kristin and hope you're having a great Sunday! I'm a freebie fiend, so I'm always looking for things I can get for free, and passing on the info. That's great that your birthday is coming up soon, and hope you can post some pics of things you were able to snag. What date is it? Hugs...RO
