Here's A List Of 30 Companies That Will Give You Free Stuff On Your Birthday

Life & Travel

There are only 365 days a year, but only one of them is solely dedicated to YOU. To help you celebrate, many stores and restaurants offer special discounts and even free items to rewards members and frequent shoppers! The best stuff in life is free and if play your cards right, you can celebrate your birthday all month long. Don't miss out!


Like the true Virgo I am, you better believe that I was up early on my birthday morning, ready to cash in on my free Starbucks drink and had my shopping charts at Sephora and Victoria's Secret needing only to press "confirm". The key to maximizing birthday discounts is picking the few that you are truly interested in and having them set up well in advance.

In order to make the most of the various discounts, note a few tips:

  • Make sure you are a rewards member and don't wait until the last minute to sign up. Your email subscription might not kick in immediately, so give yourself some wiggle room.
  • More often than not, you usually need to be signed up for a company's e-newsletter (especially for beauty and clothing rewards) in order to get your birthday freebie. And sometimes, you might even be required to purchase something in order to get the freebie.
  • Company newsletters do have the potential to spam your email account, so opt to sign up with your "spam email address" and check for discounts 1-2 weeks before your birthday arrives.
  • Companies can and frequently change their promotions without notice. Another reason to check in on a particular freebie or discount you are interested in a few days before.

The discounts below represent the most recent offers listed on the respective company websites. Pull out your planner and bookmark some of these special offers. Here are 30 beauty, clothing, and dining discounts you can get on your birthday.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
