Best Birthday Rewards

Best Birthday Rewards – FREE Treats, Food, Movie Tickets, and More

Whoever said, ‘there’s no such thing as a free lunch’ probably didn’t read this article. Stores love to reward and celebrate their customers on their birthdays. It gets you through the door and likely keeps you coming back. So, if you aren’t signed up for emails and loyalty programs, you’re definitely missing out. Signing up takes only a couple of minutes and offers big rewards, sometimes immediate ones! Check out this list of the best birthday rewards you and your family or friends can enjoy.

Celebrate your birthday month in style with all these great freebies and discounts. Just a few of the free birthday goodies I’ve been offered as a loyal customer include:


  • A Free Movie Ticket!
  • Free Liquid Lipstick
  • Free Nail Polish
  • Complimentary Cinnamon Sticks
  • Free Stack of Pancakes
  • Free Gourmet Burger
  • $30 certificate to Benihana
  • Free Ice Cream Sundae
  • And More!

You can score the best birthday rewards by spending just a few minutes signing up for deals that matter to you. Sign up once and reap these amazing benefits year after year! (unless terms state otherwise) Also, be sure to like our 422 Deals Facebook Page, where we share deals and freebies that we find daily!

PRO DEAL TIP: Dedicated Inbox

My personal recommendation is to create a free Gmail or Yahoo account to use exclusively for offers. This way you don’t clutter up your personal inbox and you can always go back and “Search” for your birthday freebies!

Follow these steps to take advantage of the best birthday rewards with very little effort.

  1. Simply go to your preferred email provider and create a new account.
  2. Record your password wherever you save passwords.
  3. Sign up for email clubs and rewards programs using this email address.
  4. Check your email and verify any memberships requiring confirmation. (You can search for “verify” or “confirm” if you’ve got a lot of those emails already.)
  5. Continue to use this email address for new signups.
  6. If desired, download related store rewards apps to maximize your savings.
  7. Print out your offers or screen shot and save them to your phone as they become available.
  8. gmail search birthdayWhen your birthday comes, search your mail for terms like:
    • Birthday
    • Free
    • Reward

Repeat the steps for anyone else in your family if applicable.
