15 Places Where You Can Get Free Things On Your Birthday


We all want to feel celebrated on our birthdays — that's kind of the point of birthdays, isn't it? Celebrating the day we came into this world? That in mind, I'm all about companies that roll out the red carpet or lift the rope for people on their birthdays. It's a good quality to be aware of how special people want to feel on their birthdays, especially when it includes the offer of free products or services to the birthday human. That's why I've rounded up a list of where to get free things on your birthday every year, because birthdays should be filled with gifts and opportunities to feel loved. Especially when it's from a company you love, too.

Whether it's a free ice cream cone, a free game night, a free beauty service, or a free drink, getting free stuff always feels like a celebration. What's more, a birthday without big plans is easily made more exciting by checking into your local businesses that care about your birthday just as much as you do. As we get older and our friends and families start to care less about our birthdays, it's a good idea to keep track of the companies that do care about your birthday to ensure that you have some gifts coming to you, no matter what. Here are some of the best birthday deals to cash in on:
