Hooray it's your Birthday!!
It's the time of year that should be filled with gifts and celebration…. But now that we are adults… Not many of us throw princess parties and invite all our friend's to bring us gifts. Now that we are older, birthday's usually come filled with dread of another year older or just seem like another day on the calendar…
This dread stopped for me about 5 years ago. I now love my birthday again and I celebrate it all month long … In fact I look forward to it because I get showered in gifts all month almost everywhere I go…
I discovered that people ( or should I say businesses ) really do want to spoil me with gifts and celebration… What better way to celebrate your birthday than with a flurry of freebies and discounts from your favorite restaurants, retailers.
If you know what to do and where to go, you too could score a ton of freebies.
Here is a small list I have put together of some of my favorite birthday rewards. (there are hundreds of places that do birthday freebies… just check your favorite retailers) Most of these places require a sign up to their rewards program or their email list (usually at least a week before your birthday) a few will even give you a coupon or gift just for signing up....But once you are signed up you will see the emails roll in each year for your big day.
Sephora Beauty Insider. This is my favorite birthday freebie. Its a different makeup sample kit each year. I even had my husband sign up since he buys things for me here as well, and I get to cash in on his birthday as well.
