Birthday Freebies - From Pennies to Pounds

Birthday Freebies guide for you lovely people in the UK! If it’s your birthday and you are heading out, or just popping to the shops, what better way to celebrate than taking advantage of the birthday treats sent out by some fabulous companies! It was my birthday recently and some of the companies I am signed up to very kindly sent me some birthday freebies, which was a really great little treat for my birthday, so I thought it would be handy to compile a list of all of the birthday freebies available to sign up to.

Everyone loves getting a freebie, and these require little effort to achieve. For most of them you just have to sign up to their newsletter and wait for them to send you a voucher or similar around your birthday! Make sure you check the terms and conditions on the ones that you choose to sign up for though, to make sure that you qualify. Sometimes you will be required to take your I.D. with you as well.

It’s worth noting that a lot of companies will send you vouchers for money off on your birthday (and throughout the year as well), which is always handy if you are planning on buying something from there. But this list is sticking to things that you get for free.

Greggs
Through the Greggs reward app, they will send you a sweet treat e.g. a donut, cupcake (Sharing cakes, giant cupcakes, punnets and multi-packs are not eligible for this promotion.). Extra treats include a complimentary breakfast when you join the rewards scheme through the app, and a free hot drink when you buy seven hot drinks at full price in any size. Also a monthly prize draw entry!

Millie’s Cookies
Free cookie voucher emailed to you on your birthday when signed up to their list. Millie’s Cookies are the best!
