This list of birthday freebies has grown to more than 50! When your birthday rolls around, milk it for all it’s worth with this growing list of birthday deals and free offers.
Many of the Birthday Freebies below I received via email, so I know these offers are current. Those are marked with an asterisk (*).
Others on the list may still be on their way, but were offers in previous years. Many of these are sent via email when you sign up for email updates or for a free rewards program. Offers are subject to change and may be regional.
I’ve included links for you to sign up, and enjoy for yourself when your birthday rolls around!
