What's more fun than getting free stuff on your birthday? From complimentary desserts to generous coupons, birthday deals are everywhere, and even the ones that aren't totally free will still net you savings.
Check out our huge list of birthday freebies below — you can score free treats and gifts from big retailers and restaurants alike.
How to Get Free Things on Your Birthday
Some birthday freebies are valid only on your big day, and others, for a few days around your birthday. Some might even be valid for your whole birthday month! When preparing to redeem, be ready to show proof of your birthday, usually in the form of your photo ID. However, many birthday rewards actually require you to sign up for a mailing list, join an eClub, or download an app.
Whatever steps you have to take to receive a freebie, coupon, or shopping discount, make sure you do them in advance! Some offers take time to be processed.
Beware that deals can vary by location, and some locations might not participate at all. Alternatively, there are bound to be retailers not on this list that will help you celebrate. Ask your favorite stores to see if they offer anything special!
Once your birthday has passed, be sure to check out the senior discounts and student deals available every day of the year! And if you're affiliated with the military, see all the military discounts you can get, too.
