Birthday Freebies-Free gifts to help you celebrate!
It was my birthday recently and I managed to have a lovely day out using some lovely birthday freebies.
I thought it would be good to share with you how I did this, as it’s so easy to do and it’s a lovely little surprise on your birthday. For the majority of them you just have to sign up to their newsletter or download their app, it’s all completely free to do and very easy. It’s a good idea to make sure that you sign up with them a few months before your birthday to ensure that it’s all processed in time and you don’t miss out.
So listed below are the companies that I’m signed up with, that send you some birthday freebies. There’s lots of other companies that you can sign up to as well, but for a lot of them to have to buy something to get something else for free, e.g a meal to get another meal or drink free. So I’m just going with ones that I use that doesn’t involve you having to spend anything.
So, here you go:
Birthday Freebies – Vouchers
If you’re signed up to the Ikea Family Card, you receive a £5 voucher to spend on anything in store, valid for a month from your birthday, there’s no minimum spend either. It cant be used on cafe purchases, only on store items. But with your Family Card you can get a free tea or coffee in the restaurant anyway so you can claim that while you’re deciding what to spend your £5 voucher on!
If you sign up to the Hobbycraft club (online or instore) you get a free £5 voucher sent to you on your birthday. Again there is no minimum spend and it can be used on anything in store. I was in store for ages deciding what to buy! I finally settled on some washi tape which I going to use to make some cards for birthdays this year (if they turn out ok!)
Sign up to the Paperchase Treat me card and you will be sent a £5 voucher on your birthday, to spend in store. No minimum spend on this one again so it can be used on anything in store.
The Body Shop Voucher
If you sign up to the Body Shop’s “Love your Body Club” you receive a £5 voucher to use on anything in store.
Birthday Freebies – Beauty
Free Brow Wax – Benefit Counter
You can claim a free Brow wax from the Benefit Counter in Debenhams on your birthday if you’re signed up to their Beauty Club.
Birthday Freebies -Sweet things!
If you’re signed up to the M&S Sparks card you get sent a voucher for a free hot drink and slice of cake. I chose a gorgeous slice of date and walnut cake and a cup of tea and half an hour of blissful me time reading a book!
The Greggs rewards app gives you a free sweet treat (doughnut, biscuit or cake) on your birthday. I love this app as you get so many freebies throughout the year as well.
Milies Cookies send you a voucher for a free cookie on your birthday if you’re signed up to their newsletter.
You receive a free Krispy Creme doughnut of your choice on your birthday if you’re signed up to the “Friends of Krispy Kreme” rewards scheme. I also get sent vouchers through this for free doughnuts throughout the year as well. You also get a free original doughnut for your children and your significant other on their birthdays too!
So that’s it, I haven’t used all of my freebies yet, but most of them are valid for a month so I’ll be making the most of them in the next few weeks.
