Go shawty, it's your birthday! Who doesn't love to celebrate birthdays? And what better way to celebrate than with FREE STUFF! That's why I've compiled the world's most gigantic list of birthday freebies a few years ago and have been using it ever since.

*Note: When you click the links in this post, we may receive a commission at no extra cost to you.

All you need to do is get on the email lists for these places (in advance) and they will give you great freebies and deals for your birthday and other special occasions. I not only get free food, but free makeup, gifts, coupons, and more! You can even sign your kids up for them to get birthday freebies, too. Before we get started on the longest list that you'll ever read…

HERE ARE MY TIPS FOR TAKING ADVANTAGE OF SO MANY BIRTHDAY FREEBIES

You have to be careful with deals, because oftentimes the expiration dates come up MUNDO FASTO. Here are a few quick tips to help you make the most out of your birthday freebies and deals:

CREATE A BIRTHDAY FREEBIES EMAIL FOLDER

If you don't want junk mail to hit your inbox, simply filter the emails out! That way the coupons and deals are automatically filtered into a handy little folder, ready and waiting for when you need them. Get the tutorial and learn to filter your email. Just DON'T UNSUBSCRIBE from them, or else you'll have to go back and re-subscribe every year. What a pain!

PUT THE DEALS ON YOUR CALENDAR

Once you get a deal, put it on your calendar. I use Google Calendar because I can access it from anywhere (my phone, iPad, computer, etc.) and you can have multiple calendars within a calendar. So you could have a “coupons” calendar, and “hide” it when you don't need it. Put the expiration date on your calendar, and put a reminder that the expiration date is coming 1 week before it happens. This is also a great tip for those Groupons and daily deals that always seem to expire before I get around to using them….grrr….

Most deals are digital these days and you can easily access them from your phone wherever you go. But for those that you need to have physical copies, print them out and keep them in your coupon notebook. Then leave the notebook in your car. You can read about my old coupon binder here.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR BIRTHDAY FREEBIES!

Make a plan for those birthday freebies once you have them all on your calendar and work them into your day! If it’s free food that can be turned into a meal, then work that into your meal plan for the week. Get the most out of those birthday freebies! 

However, don’t blow your weekly budget just because you have lots of birthday freebies that can be used! If you have to spend a certain amount to get a certain discount but you don’t really need anything (food, makeup, clothes, etc.), then don’t go over budget just to save a few dollars. The whole point of these birthday freebies are to get things for either super cheap or preferably FREE!

BUY (AND GIVE) GIFT CARDS

Gifting a gift card to the special birthday person is an awesome way to gift someone an experience over “stuff”.. Amazon has a huge variety of restaurant gift cards, and what we love about them is not only are they an easy gift to give, but everyone loves being treated to something special!

Now, onto the deals!
