What better way to celebrate your birthday than with freebies? Everyone loves getting something for free, and it’s a great way to treat yourself on your special day. Tons of restaurants give out special coupons or a free dessert (which often comes with an unfortunate rendition of the “Happy Birthday” song sung by tone-deaf waitstaff).
It’s easy to sign up for birthday freebies at your favorite eateries through text alerts or an email list.
But what about all the other free birthday rewards out there? Here’s a list of 12 stores you can check out for their free offers:
1. American Eagle
Sign up for AEREWARDS and get 15 percent off at AEO and Aerie during your birthday month.
If you join the Anthro Loyalty Program at least 30 days prior to your birthday, you’ll receive a “birthday treat.”

A Final Thought
Also keep in mind all the local attractions and restaurants near you. There are plenty of places that offer free food, so it won’t take much effort on your part to eat free for every meal on your birthday! It might make for a busy day, but if you plan carefully you can bring home a pile of free stuff and other cheap birthday deals for one memorable birthday.
