Here’s A List Of Free Stuff You Can Get On Your Birthday
Birthdays are great. There isn’t much that beats them. There is however one thing that comes close: free stuff. On your birthday, you might get free stuff in the form of presents, being shouted drinks at the pub or maybe getting treated to a meal.
Why stop there? Birthdays only come around once a year, and I reckon you should take advantage of that 24-hour window and rack up as many freebies as possible.
Well, businesses like to treat their customers on their birthday with freebies and discounts. Here are some choice handouts and sweet discounts you can claim on your b’day.
Disclaimer: most of these you’ll need to sign up for, so suss out their website if you’re keen. Be sure to check out the terms and conditions of any of these offers, like the smart, financially rational person you are.
