Here’s what you need to know before loading up on free birthday stuff:

Offers can vary by region and they may change often. Many of the businesses listed above do not list the actual promotion details so it’s difficult to verify if they change or are removed. We will try to keep this list updated as often as possible.

As you can tell, most are switching to app-based promotions as a way to reach their customers easier. Unfortunately, it’s also a way to track and send you notifications. Please make sure you adjust your privacy sharing settings after installing each app. Although most of it is harmless, we want you to be aware of potential privacy issues before installing any app on your Android or iPhone.

Pro tips for scoring all of the best free birthday stuff:

Many birthday freebies require you to sign up in advance, so be sure to enroll in the rewards programs now so that you’ll have the offer in hand when your birthday comes around.

Many places won’t send a birthday offer if you sign up too close to your actual birthday.

Most birthday offers have a redemption window so you’ll need to act before the free offer expires (we’ve got all of the details below).

Some are valid only on your birthday while others give you a whole month to redeem. Try to make the most of your birthday month by claiming these freebies all month long!

Don’t forget to check out our list of free ecards to send to the birthday boy or girl.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you found some useful information to help celebrate your or a loved one’s birthday.
