30+ Birthday Freebies & Deals (Updated 2022!)

Celebrate your birthday with free stuff. This list of 30+ Birthday Freebies & Deals is filled with free coffee, sandwiches, cake, and more.

Make this the best birthday yet with help from our other birthday posts.

Today is my birthday, which means I’m actually off so I can collect all the birthday freebies and birthday rewards.

Every year during my birthday month, I go through all the individual birthday freebies and update the posts and reshare them. So this list is as up to date as possible.

But, keep in mind that these offers are subject to change at any time, and Drugstore Divas has no affiliation with any of them, so be sure to check before you head out for them.

I made sure to 100% verify these as best I could. These are either all offers I received this month for my birthday or ones I could verify at the brand’s website. If there were generic offers on the website, or if I didn’t receive the offer this year, I didn’t post it.

If you received others this year and can forward me the information, I’ll be sure to add it to this list.

Birthday Freebies & Deals

Affiliate links are included in this post and Drugstore Divas may make a small commission if you use them.

I’m including free treats, free money to spend at stores, free with purchase offers (even though those are not my favorite), and discounts that are offered for your birthday (because I wanted this list to feel as complete as possible).
