10 Free Things You Can Get on Your Birthday

College can be expensive, with tuition, food, going out and everything in between. So, getting anything free is worth it, especially when it's your birthday. Many companies offer discounts to celebrate your birthday while some companies offer completely free items. The downside is that you will likely have to sign up for an account and receive emails. But that's what that junk mail folder is for.

 

If you want to save some money on your special day, here are some of the best birthday freebies to check out. Remember to sign up a few weeks to a month before your birthday to make sure that you receive the reward.

There are plenty of other companies that also offer birthday rewards. To find the best free things and discounts for you, check out your favorite stores and restaurants to see if they have a rewards program. And if you haven't already, you should also check out discounts for restaurants, stores, and activities that you can get with your student ID card. However, these will only last while you're in school. Birthday rewards, on the other hand, will keep coming year after year.
