Saving for a Change: Tip #18


Got a birthday coming up, did you know that you can celebrate it and get free goodies from many restaurants and retailers? Birthdays are a special time and many places want to share in the celebration, so they offer free or discounted items and services. Before your birthday, sign up on-line for the “birthday club/program” with participating Birthday Balloonretailers and close to your birthday you’ll get an e-mail notification with instructions on how to redeem your free stuff. However, there are many restaurants that you can dine in on your birthday and you simply let them know you’re celebrating your birthday and they’ll give you a free or discounted item. Granted you don’t get a free limo service and shopping spree to Neiman Marcus being part of their birthday club/program, but there are lots of great stuff you can get.

I heard about the birthday clubs from a friend and then signed up. One year, on my birthday, I  got desserts at Cold Stone Creamery and Baskin Robbins (I know that’s a lot of ice-cream, but its my weakness), after having a fully loaded burrito, chips and salsa at Moe’s Southwest Grill and spent the afternoon visiting the Aquarium all for free. That’s just to name a few of the places that I signed up with. Recently, I found a cool website, Mrfreestuff.com,  that has over a hundred places for you to sign up; however all the places listed probably aren’t  in your area, but there are plenty of places to choose from that might be.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you with lots of well wishes and free treats too!

Casually speaking and all the best,
Mercedes
