The Ultimate List of Birthday Freebies
* PLEASE NOTE THAT WITH COVID THESE MAY NOT CURRENTLY BE OFFERED SO PLEASE CHECK WITH THE INDIVIDUAL RETAILER*
If it’s your birthday and you are heading out, or just popping to the shops, what better way to celebrate than taking advantage of the birthday treats sent out by some fabulous companies!
Everyone loves getting a freebie, and these require little effort to achieve.
For most of them you just have to sign up to their newsletter and wait for them to send you a voucher or similar around your birthday!
Make sure you check the terms and conditions on the ones that you choose to sign up for though, to make sure that you qualify.
Sometimes you will be required to take your I.D. with you as well.
It’s worth noting that a lot of companies will send you vouchers for money off on your birthday (and throughout the year as well), which is always handy if you are planning on buying something from there.
