My 24th birthday was on April 13th, and I set out on a mission of treating myself to some freebies all over town. There’s so much information out there, so I thought I’d make a blog post about it. All of these places offer these things for free during your birthday or birthday month. Why not take advantage? Here is a list of places I found to have birthday freebies in Edmonton, Alberta.
Tip: Make sure you sign up for things at LEAST a week before your birthday to ensure you are eligible for those freebies!
Marble Slab – A free birthday surprise, and I later found out you still have to spend money to get it, so kind of a freebie but not really. You have to sign up for “Marble Mail” 48 hours before your birthday. http://www.marbleslab.ca/marble-mail
Coras – A “special birthday treat”. You have to be signed up at least a week before your birthday. Unfortunately I didn’t sign up for it in time, so I don’t have a ton of intel on what you get. Here’s a link to their signup page: http://www.chezcora.com/en/newsletter-subscribe
Starbucks – if you don’t have a Starbucks account, you should! It’s really easy to register, and they’ll send you a Starbucks card that you can use every time you go to Starbucks. Once you’re registered with Starbucks, you get a free birthday drink on your birthday (any size). Here’s a link to the create an account page: https://www.starbucks.ca/account/create
Sephora – Free Birthday gift (in 2018 it was a choice of Bite lipstick and lip scrub, or glamglow moisturizer and a mud treatment) you must be a Beauty inside member to redeem. You can easily sign up here: https://www.sephora.com/about-beauty-insider?icid2=bi_birthday_lp_d_image

Denny’s – Free Grand Slam breakfast (egg, bacon, sausage, and pancake). Yep, I ate it too fast before I took a picture, so this is what I took home after getting too full! Just need your ID to prove it’s your birthday. https://www.dennys.ca/promotions/

I also went to The Keg on my birthday and they gave me a free birthday cake dessert. Lots of restaurants will give a free dessert on your birthday, so definitely save room for that later!
