Happy Birthday! I have no actual gift for you, but score yourself something free on your special day courtesy of this list.
Nothing wrong with taking advantage of some of your favorite stores birthday freebies. Many offer things redeemable all week or even all month long. There are a lot of places that do freebies NOT on this list. Many pizza chains, local boutiques, and specialty drink spots have promotions like this. Here are my favorites that have a good mixture of both national and local retailers.
Get a free drink, entirely YOUR choice, on your birthday if you’re a Starbucks Rewards member. There are also tons of other little perks you get if you frequent the chain.
Sign up before your birthday to guarantee your reward!
2. Local dispensary
Show your ID at your local dispensary ( and maybe gently remind them today is that day,) to claim your birthday freebie. Most dispensaries have their own promotion of a free birthday pre-roll, grab or select edibles. Call ahead if you’re unsure about your typical place.
Hop down to the nearby Denny’s and present your ID to build your own free Grand Slam at Denny’s. A Grand Slam includes two buttermilk pancakes, two beef bacon strips, two sausage links and two eggs.
If you’re on top of things, fill out a form online and later receive an email with a birthday coupon for your free, 16-inch pizza with one topping! A $20 value. Expert tip says to fill out the form a month before your birthday.
5. Nothing Bundt Cakes
How about free cake on your birthday? Nothing Bundt Cakes has a sweet deal for their e-club members. Sign up and get a bundlet – mini bundt cake- for your birthday. They come in several flavors some of which are pecan praline, white chocolate raspberry and marble. You can redeem the mini cake by presenting the email and having your valid ID at any of their five valley locations.
6. Jamba Juice
Cake isn’t for everybody! If a fruity treat is more your speed, Jamba Juice has you in mind with their Jamba Juice Insider Rewards program. A week before your celebratory day, Jamba will send you an email to show the cashier upon check out. You may need to show your ID!

One more sugar stop! If you enjoy cupcakes on more than just your birthday then you need to join Sprinkles Perks. The more points you rack up during the year, the more cupcakes you get on your birthday! The vanilla tier gets one free birthday cupcake, dark chocolate tier gets two and red velvet tier gets 13 free cupcakes.
Even if no one else celebrates your birthday, you can! Let’s be real, as an adult there are few opportunities to really celebrate that day. We got to work or take care of children… anyone can pick up one of these freebies and celebrate for those few minutes. Happy birthday!
