Frugal Friday-You Say It’s Your Birthday?

7 Jan

Birthdays-we all got them. I believe that on your birthday, whatever you say goes because it is your day. I usually end up celebrating my birthday for a full week or sometimes a month. I believe that employers should be obligated to give you the day off on your birthday but most of all, believe you’re entitled to some free goodies on your birthday: 

*Sign up for  Applebee’s Email List and get a free treat on your birthday along with other specials offered to you throughout the year!

*Like having your food prepared right in front of you? Sign up for Benihana’s Chef’s Table and they will you a $30 voucher during your birthday month!

*Enjoy a free creation at Cold Stone Creamery on your birthday. The offer is valid for a week before or after your birthday so there is no rush to go there on your birthday. Although, who doesn’t want to rush over to Cold Stone?

*Like Starbucks? Buy a gift card, then sign up for their My Rewards program and get a free drink on your birthday.You start out at green status then go to the Gold level and get a snazzy gold card with your name printed on it. Plus for every 15 drinks you buy with your Starbucks card, you get a free drink. And not just a plain cup of joe—you can go all out and get a Venti Extra Shot Mocha or whatever you want. I go all out when I get my birthday drink or free drink!

Venti 3 pump Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte with an extra shot of espresso-fabulous birthday drink!

*Or if you prefer Caribou Coffee, sign up for a free account and they will send you a coupon for a free drink on your birthday!

*I miss Famous Dave’s, we had one in Arizona but none in North Carolina, sadness. Join their PIG (Pretty Important Guest) Club and get a oinkin free meal on your birthday.

*Get a free blizzard on your birthday at Dairy Queen!

*Panera Bread has their My Panera program which allows you to swipe your rewards card with each purchase plus they give you an initial free coffee or tea drink plus a sweet or pastry item for your birthday (like Cold Stone, you don’t have to use it on your birthday and it’s valid for two months after).

*Be a Hardrocker with Hard Rock Cafe and get a free dessert on your birthday!

*Get a flavor south of the border! Sign up for Qdoba’s email list and get a free burrito on your birthday.

*Sign up with Sephora and get a free gift on your birthday! Last year I got a Sephora lip gloss set and this year an eye makeup set with liner and mascara, you can’t beat a deal like that! Plus you can pick it up in the store or when you order online (when you order online, you also get three free samples)

Hope these links gave you some good ways to have your  burrito bbq ice cream coffee blizzard cake and eat it too!

What are some places you know of that I didn’t mention that give you free goodies on your birthday?
