Everyone has a birthday, and you may be able to score a lot of free birthday stuff by just flashing your birthdate on your driver’s license or by signing up for a company’s free email club to receive a coupon for your birthday.
Yes, you will need to sign up for a company’s mailing list in order to receive birthday freebies, but if you don’t want your inbox flooded you can sign up with an email address used solely for promotional emails, or you can limit the amount of mailing lists you sign up for.
Another great benefit of signing up for birthday freebies is that you often receive a free item or a discount just for signing up, as well as on the anniversary of when you signed up for their email list.
Below are 31 birthday freebies you should think about signing up for. I am not an affiliate for any of the companies below, these are all just fun, free birthday things I thought you might enjoy. Also, occasionally a company may change their birthday promotion, so if birthday freebie information becomes outdated, please let me know in the comments below.
