In this economy, freebies are even more exciting than ever. Especially on your birthday. I posted awhile back on getting a free Cold Stone treat on your birthday (and thanks to my friend Loren who also said that Baskin Robbins does the same thing).
It turns out there’s a whole industry of things you can get for free on your birthday.
Like a free ticket to Disneyland on your birthday – in 2009. Of course when we went to Disneyland last summer, very close to my husband’s special day, he had one request: that we did NOT spend his day there (he’s not a fan). But personally, that would be one of my favorite celebrations (hint hint).
Birthday freebies are such a special industry, that there’s a whole web site devoted to them. I thought I’d point you in that direction.
A few examples: on your kids’ birthday, get them free food at California Pizza Kitchen, Denny’s, Marble Slab Creamery, Red Robin, Sonic Drive-In, the Old Spaghetti Factory and more.
Olan Mills offers a free portrait sheet, Limited Too gives you 20% off a birth day purchase, and Diddams gives you a free package of invitations (but who needs invitations ON their birthday???? Presumably the party is already planned).
Most of these offers you have to sign for online. And there’s a separate section for adult birthdays too – it’s not all about the kids you know!
