You may be aware that when your birthday is approaching you get an influx of Emails from companies who are trying to entice you in with a birthday gift, free meal, free drink which is great. A bit of forward planning though, you could get a shed load of freebies for your birthday.

Below is a list of the companies I know who offer a birthday treat. Most will require you to subscribe to their newsletter but you could always use a separate email address if you don’t want to be inundated with emails.

This page is updated regularly so please let me know if you come across any birthday treats that are not on the list and I will get them added 🙂

So, lets see what’s on offer?
