Two weeks ago today I celebrated my 33rd birthday. (Can’t believe it’s already been three years since my 30 Before Thirty!) As you know, I’m a big fan of rewards programs where you get benefits for following a certain brand/company or entering codes from products you already purchase. Below is a list of freebies I received on or around my birthday due to being part of rewards programs, store loyalty cards, credit cards and email newsletters. I can’t guarantee you’ll get the same freebies, of course, but it’s worth checking out if you have an interest with these companies/brands!
Auntie Anne’s – I was emailed a Free Pretzel Product with the purchase of a pretzel product coupon that expired the first of the month after my birthday since I’m on their email list!
DSW – I’m a member of their DSW Rewards program. On the 1st of the month I received a $5 off coupon to be used any time during my birthday month off my next purchase at their store.
Kellogg’s Family Rewards – I’ve been racking up these points from our cereal/frozen waffle purchases and the freebie points given out all the time but I have yet to really cash any of my points in! I love the perks that continue to come all year long, including my birthday! They emailed me a special 100 points bonus code plus $20 to spend at Shutterfly (which you know is a favorite place of mine for photos and photo gifts!) The best part about the code was that it expires January of NEXT YEAR! Woo hoo! Credits for Christmas gifts!
Kohls – I’m both a Kohls credit card member and Yes2You Rewards member. I believe as the Kohls credit card member, I was mailed a postcard with a $10 coupon to be used any way I wish in their store for the month of my birthday. But in addition, I received a $10 credit to use as I wish as a Yes2You Rewards member!
Loft – I’m a Loft credit card holder as I love their outlet store near me! I received another $15 coupon on a postcard to be used in store for the full month of my birthday!
Moe’s Southwest Grill – I signed up on their email list and received a free entrée with a purchase of a soda coupon the week before my birthday! This is one we cashed in and I got some yummy quesadillas!
Old Navy – As part of their email list, I received a 10% off no exclusions coupon which expired 14 days from the date of the email (which was sent on my birthday)
Red Lobster – Because I’m part of their email list, I received a coupon for $5 off any 2 adult entrees.
Ruby Tuesdays – Again being part of the email list has its perks! They sent me a free birthday burger about a week before the big day!
Sephora – As a Sephora Beauty Insider card holder (rewards program) I received an email telling me how to get a free gift from Nars upon checkout during my birthday month. Those sneaky Sephora marketers… having me make a purchase to get my freebie!
Unos Pizzeria & Grill – As I’m part of Uno’s Insider’s Club (email newsletter) I received a coupon for $10 off any $25 order which was good for the week before until two weeks AFTER my birthday! Finally one that didn’t need to be used on the day of!
FYI for 2016…Sephora will let you pick up your birthday gift in store without a purchase.
