Birthday Music I Can Hear – 11 Birthday Freebies for Restaurants and Shopping

Happy Birthday! “It’s scientifically proven that people who have more birthdays live longer.” “Age is just a number, in your case a really high one.” “You think age is funny? Wait until you look in the mirror.” Is it that time of year again where you open your Facebook page to find a barrage of jabs from family and friends who figure a digital greeting means more than a card and cake? Well guess what? I have a digital birthday surprise for you too. 

Whether you are 40, 50 or inching up on the world of 60 and beyond, getting another year older does have some perks, and I’m not talking about ordering off the senior menu at Denny’s, or the loss of hearing most distinguished adults can’t escape. I’m talking about Utah’s favorite “F” word…FREE! 

There are dozens of companies out there just waiting to send you a free gift for your birthday – restaurants that want to feed you and stores that want to give you freebies or money to spend. Here are 11 birthday freebies that topped my list: 

*Kmart and Sears: Join the Shop Your Way Birthday Club and you will receive a special gift on your birthday. Mine was $10 to spend in the store. Plus, when you register your kids, they’ll get $5 in birthday bucks, a birthday crown, happy birthday certificate and a birthday fun pack.

*Ulta Beauty: Sign up for the Ulta Rewards Program and get a special birthday surprise. Last year mine was an exclusive lipstick that sells for $18.

*Sephora: Get a FREE gift from Sephora on your birthday. Last year mine was a beauty product valued at $25.

*Aveda: Join their birthday program and receive FREE exclusive offer on your birthday. Last year mine was a bottle of essential oil.

*Victoria’s Secret: Sign up for emails and receive special gift for your birthday. In past years this has been a $10 gift card. 

*Kohls: Sign up for YES2YOU rewards and get a $10 Kohls gift card for your birthday.

*Famous Footwear: Sends rewards members a $5 gift card. Last year that bagged me a free pack of socks. 

*Red Robin: Is going to send you a free certificate for a burger for your birthday.

*Noodles and Company: Will give you a free bowl of noodles.

*Shula’s 347 Grill (West Valley City): Will send you a complimentary entrée with the purchase of an entrée of equal or greater value.

*Boondocks: Birthday Club members enjoy an unlimited FREE pass!

Cashing in on the goods is easy; you simply join their monthly emails. A little tip, these emails can be cumbersome. My advice is to join only the companies you enjoy hearing from and don’t stash them away for just your birthday. Most of these companies send out special coupons during other times of the year too. Lastly, make sure you are signing up for their actual birthday club and not just their monthly newsletter; some of them require different forms. You can find dozens more and links to each of the forms on www.coupons4utah.com/birthday.

Free lunch, shopping, dinner and entertainment on my birthday is birthday music I can hear.
