This month I am celebrating my birthday and I’ve been receiving a lot of freebies, discounts, and coupons. Last night I was able to enjoy a meal at a good discount because of my birthday. In the food department, I’ve received over $75 worth of free food vouchers/coupons/offers. Granted most of these I have to buy another meal to use them, but I am planning to use many of them because my friends and family are all taking me out this month.
The retail industry gives out birthday gifts/coupons/freebies too. I’ve received about $30.00 off coupons and 2 free retail gifts so far! I went into Sephora yesterday and was able to choose between two nice gifts that I got for free.
Kohls, DSW, and CVS send out coupons worth $3, $5, $10 off any purchase as well. I usually couple the dollar off amount with another percentage off amount. For example, I have a 30% off coupon at Kohls. I plan to buy something there I need that is $18.00. With the 30% off $18.00 + my $10.00 birthday coupon, I’ll get an $18.00 item for a few bucks!
Plus, in both the food and retail industries, many of these coupons and freebies can be redeemed the entire month of your birthday. Often, when you subscribe for birthday deals, you are given other bonus discounts and coupons as well.
Though I may be missing a few, I’ve gathered my favorite birthday freebie offers and listed them below.
