The Top Ten Freebies You Can Score on Your Birthday This Year
Happy Birthday! Yes, we all hear this on our own special day but how many of us really indulge because of the occasion? What if I told you that you could score all sorts of free stuff on your birthday just by signing up for mailing lists online?
Yes, you heard that right! You can celebrate your birthday in style without spending a dime. From food, to coupons to your favorite retailers, you get all kinds of fun things on your special day. So go ahead and enjoy yourself! After all, you deserve it. I’m going to list a few of the things you can get while out and about. Also be sure to check out the freebies on your birthday I have talked about in the past.
Most places will recognize your birthday if you tell them and some will want to see a form of ID. That’s ok unless you don’t like your driver’s license photo (Who does?). Some places give you free meals while others give you free desserts. Some Internet favorites include:

But, keep in mind that it isn’t just restaurants that give you free things on your birthday. Retailers like to give coupons and discounts as well. I’ll list off a few that I think are worth looking into.

Great list! I love getting the free food... it seems like Mexican restaurants are the best for giving out a free meal on birthdays...
Being that my birthday is in 4 days, this is a very timely post. I normally get a few free things on my birthday, but I know I don't take advantage of it as much as I should.
