Your Foolproof Guide To Birthday Freebies


Want to know a fun fact about me? I pretty much lie on both ends of the spectrum when it comes to being a frugal spender or an impulsive buyer. Not only am I an avid couponer, discount code user, and Rewards Card enthusiast (and proud of it!), but I can also spontaneously purchase an item for its original price if I can’t stop obsessing over it. Because I know a bunch of you guys LOVE freebies (I mean who doesn’t?), I thought I would share one of my secrets to unlocking the ultimate birthday treat for yourself, such as scoring all of them birthday freebies during your special month!

If you really don’t want to miss out on the goods (insert suggestive emoji here), be sure to check out my foolproof guide to birthday freebies below! Additionally, I want to point out that since I grew up in the Bay Area but currently live in Orange County, this list will GENERALLY pertain to California residents. If anything, I highly recommend signing up for ALL of these brand’s newsletters and email lists no later than one month before your birthday to the beginning of your birthday month. However, the earlier, the better! In regards to expiration dates, please keep in mind that my birthday is on June 17th, so y’all can use my birthday as a general reference to assess approximately when these deals will most likely expire.

So without further ado, let’s get started! In order to redeem these amazing freebies, you either have to sign up for their email list/newsletter on their website (usually it’s either an automatic pop-up or located at the very bottom of the home page) or download the mobile app.

*NOTE: I will continue to update this birthday list every single year to keep all of these discounts/deals up-to-date, so be sure to bookmark/save this blog post and share it with your friends for future updates! :)
