I love celebrating my birthday for tons of reasons. There aren’t many days during the year that allow you to unabashedly have all of the attention on you for 24 hours. On top of that, you can enjoy yummy desserts, take trips, and have deep reflection all in the name of your birthday!? How amazing is that? One of my favorite birthday past times has to include getting free treats from my favorite restaurants and stores. It makes me super giggly inside and I feel so special when I can snag something for free or almost free at a place I give my money to all year anyways. I’ve pulled together a list of my favorite stores and restaurants that offer really sweet birthday treats below. See one that I’m missing? Let me know in the comments – I’m always looking to add more to my list and get ready for next year’s birthday.
- Chick-fil-A – They will send you a reward to the Chick-fil-A One app. This year my reward was the choice of an original sandwich, 8 or 12-count nugget.
- Chicken Salad Chick – Offers a free CSC meal. Yum. Download their app and enter your birthday to receive your gift.
- Crumbl Cookies – If you’ve never tried Crumbl you’re in for a treat. On your birthday, you get a free cookie. Download their app and complete your profile to get the perk.
- Cava – Cava offers $9 off of a meal for your birthday. Now personally, I think they could do better and offer a full meal but we’ll take it. Download the app and complete your profile for the award.
- Cinnaholic – Offers a $5 off coupon for your birthday. I think most of their treats are under $5. Just sign up for their birthday club program while in the store and they’ll email you your coupon.
- Jeni’s – Offers a free ice cream cone on your birthday. Just show your ID. Note: They have recently come out with a new rewards system/app so this may change. Download Jeni’s rewards app here and use my code for a few extra points (Disclaimer: I get a few points too. Ka19083542
- Nothing Bundt Cakes – Offers a free bundtlet cake. Sign up for their birthday club to receive your birthday coupon.
- Starbucks – Your birthday gift is a free beverage anyway you want it, any size you want. Pure joy, right? Just download their app and make sure you have entered your birthday. They will send you a birthday reward to use on your birthday. The downside is you have to use it on the exact day of your birthday.
From my experience, you get a day to a few weeks to use your birthday reward so don’t hold on to them for too long or you just might miss out. Sign up for these reward programs today so that you’ll get a free treat just in time for your birthday. Lots of stores have rewards programs so if you find yourself visiting a place often, sign up so that you can get your goodies. I’ll continue to add to this list as I discover more places. Let us know in the comments which of your favorite places offers free stuff on your birthday.
