With my birthday right around the corner, I’ve started getting a bunch of free birthday offers in my Inbox. It’s amazing how many stores and restaurants are willing to give you free stuff for your birthday, as long as you sign up for their e-mail list. I first stumbled upon this list on FatWallet years ago, and it was a real eye opener!
Some might try and take advantage of the system, but I only sign up for places that I actually frequent. Here are some of the goodies I’ve received so far:
- Sephora – Free Mini Real Mascara and Watts Up Highlighter
- Benihana – Free meal up to $30
- Aveda – Free customized gift up to $25
- BRIO Tuscan Grille – Free Meal up to $20
- Houlihans – Free meal up to $15
- Red Robin – Free Burger
- Dunkin Donuts – Free Drink
Got a birthday coming up? You might want to see if your favorite store or restaurant has an e-mail list you can sign up for. They might send you a special treat for your big day!
