It’s my birthdayyyyyyyy!
I know, I know. I get a smidge too excited for birthdays. Ever since I was little, my parents would make my birthday a big deal. Which meant March was pretty much a month long celebration. And now that I am the big 2-7, I’m still in the celebrating mood!
Ugh — 27 though. Didn’t I just turn 21? I feel so old.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve moved on from big birthday parties with cake and goodie bags to now bar hopping and freebies! More emphasis on the FREEBIES in this blog though. (But, hey, maybe I’ll write another blog later on my favorite bars in the city.) Every year, I search the Internet for freebies I can grab on my big day, and today, I want to share those with you! Here are my favorite birthday freebies this year:
- Denny’s — Every year, I start my birthday morning with a FREE Denny’s Grand Slam. This honestly is the best freebie in my opinion because you don’t have to sign up for a rewards program and you get a lot of food. You actually get to do the Build Your Own Grand Slam which includes 4 food items of your choice. All you have to do to get this? Show up on your birthday and have a valid ID.
- Chipotle — New to the birthday freebie game this year is Chipotle! My most favorite place to eat. With the launch of their new rewards program, you receive a FREE chips and guac with a $5 purchase. All you have to do? Either download the Chipotle app and sign up for their rewards (it’s free to do so) or go their website to sign up.
- First Watch — When I’m feeling really basic, I do like to got First Watch because they honestly have the most Instagrammable food. So recently, I visited and got to use a coupon for a FREE entree and Instagram story. And what’s awesome about this coupon? There’s no limit to the cost of your entree! To get this freebie, you do have to sign up for the email list (but, they do send you some good coupons every now and then). You can do so by clicking here.
- Dunkin Donuts — Today, I started off my birthday with a coffee from Dunkin’. This was my first year doing so, so I didn’t know what to expect. Well, I wasn’t prepared for a medium sized coffee! I’ve kind of been bouncing of the walls. Dunkin’ Donuts gives you a coupon for a FREE medium drink. And this can be any drink! I got a frozen coffee with a vanilla flavor shot and it was delicious. To get this freebie, you will need to sign up for the DD Rewards. To do so, click here.
- Tucanos — If you have a Tucanos near you and haven’t tried it, you should! They are a Brazilian restaurant that serves you so much food, you’ll need to roll out of the place. Like legit, I couldn’t move one year to get into the car. But anyways. This coupon is definitely up there on my list because you get a FREE meal! Which is like a $25 value. And I do recommend checking out the salad bar when you go because their lobster bisque is to die for. What’s awesome is you can use this coupon any day in the month of your birthday. All you need to do is sign up for ClubTucanos. Click here!
- Arby’s — So typically for your birthday, Arby’s gives you a free milkshake (which I usually skip). But this year they upped their game and now you can get a sandwich for FREE! Pick between a reuben, gyro, or smokehouse brisket. You do have to pay for a drink, but it’s still a great deal. To get this, you have to sign up for their email list. You can do by clicking here.
- Drunken’ Fish – Who doesn’t love sushi? And who doesn’t love FREE?! Drunkin’ Fish sends you a coupon for BOGO entrees. To get this awesome deal for date night or for a night out with friends, you just have to sign up for their rewards program. Click here.
- Firehouse Subs – So this freebie used to be a little easier to get. You just showed up, showed your ID, and got a FREE medium sub. This has changed though and you do have to sign up for their rewards program. BUT! You do not need to download an app, but just type in your phone number at check out. To sign up for this freebie, which you can sign up literally on your birthday to get it, click here.
- Marcus Theaters – This may be more of a local freebie (also this used to be Wehrenberg Theaters), but if you are apart of Marcus Rewards you get a free drink for your birthday. And I mean, with unlimited refills, this is great deal! Especially for Avengers: Endgame which is a whopping 3 hours long! To sign up for their rewards program, which also includes free food and tickets, click here.
- Sephora – Of course I had to add the free birthday gift from Sephora — one of my personal faves. Every year, they do change their gift and for the most part it’s a well-known makeup brand. This year, you have two options! To get your gift, you do have to sign up for Sephora Beauty Insider. NOTE — if you want to get your gift online, you will need to buy something for it to ship. Or you can get it in store. Click here to sign up!
- Tiger Express Car Wash – This is a super local deal — like St. Charles area and Columbia, MO — but if you’re in that area you’re in luck! You can get a free car wash. Which, after this crazy Winter, your car will need it. Click here to get your deal (TIP — you will need to scroll down the bottom of the page).
And those are my favorite freebies that I got this year! I know there are a ton more out there, so maybe check back here from time to time as I may add some more. Now, off to finish up the rest of my birthday activities! Talk to you all soon!
