Let’s be honest, getting older offers plenty of surprises. There are those unexpected curve balls, like pulling a neck muscle after a good sneeze, and realizing a trampoline isn’t quite as easy and enjoyable as it was when you were a child.
However, adding another year should be filled with FUN surprises, too! As my birthday comes around each year, I can’t help but get excited about all the BIRTHDAY FREEBIES offered from some of my favorite places!
If you’re ready for a few birthday surprises of your own, here are my best BIRTHDAY FREEBIE tips:
Plan EARLY! Most birthday freebies require you to sign up for their rewards program or download their app. In some cases, it may take several weeks to receive your birthday coupon.
Be PREPARED! Have your offer ready. Many employees may not be aware of their birthday offer. By having your coupon printed or the offer visible on your phone, you can avoid confusion and holding-up lines.
Read the small print. Some birthday freebies are totally free. However, others may simply offer a free dessert, or require you to make a purchase. It’s possible certain locations may choose not to participate, so it’s always a great idea to call before.
Plan the DAY! Make a list of your favorite freebies that are only valid on your actual birthday. Other great offers may be available during your birthday week or month. While you might enjoy a free pastry (Panera) and coffee (7 Brew or Starbucks) in the morning, an ice cream (Cold Stone) or smoothie (Tropical Smoothie) might be more enjoyable after school with a child.
Lastly, Have FUN and enjoy your special day!
