I dislike very much my birthday as I am getting older…since the process is irreversible the greatest joy I am getting on that day is from the multitude of gifts 🎁 I am getting for FREE.
On my last birthday (30 of December) I enjoyed a few of them..
My morning coffee ☕ came from Greggs – once you download their REWARDS app you will be notified about your FREE coffee and it will appear on your app for you to claim. The coffee was complemented by a free cupcake 🍰 from Patisserie Valerie.
Body Shop applied £5 credit to my account for my bday already on 14 of November yay…
So I paid the visit to the Body Shop to buy a lovely lipstick 💄, shower gel and hand cream for the £5 I got from them 🙂
We then had a lunch which was entirely for FREE, as before leaving the house I also boosted my ClubCard points and exchanged £7.5 worth of vouchers for £30 worth of codes to Pizza Express. And I also got a free bottle of wine 🍷 from them – thanks to the code they emailed me ( you can get either prosecco 🍾, wine or beer)
I decided to pick up my free cookie 🍪 form Subway once I am back at work in the first week of Jan as their freebie is valid until the end of the month so plenty of time for me to get it:-)
These were just the freebies I go thanks to the newsletters sign up/app downloads I did before my birthday but there is many more sites/shops/ places offering you fantastic birthday freebies on the special day. All you need to do is to check if the place in question offers freebies for your birthdays and then sign up for their newsletter or download their app.
Ah later in the evening we went to the cinema – entirely for FREE thanks to the Lloyds free cinema tickets :-)–> more about getting any of the Lloyds Club account perks here.
I found this list quite useful in going through the brands I like – so I sign up for some more before my this year birthday and benefit from a few more birthday freebies moving forward.
