    Hey Guys! It was my birthday a few weeks ago. I went out and tested as many birthday freebies as I could. Here, we cover the 28 Birthday Freebies I tested in April 2019. Hope you enjoy!

    In this video, we’re covering a HUGE list of places where you can get Free Gifts and Free Birthday Coupon for on or around your birthday. Anything from Free Makeup, Free Shopping and Free Food!

    Every Birthday Freebie deal in this video I was able to test and confirm myself (at the time of this recording). And every freebie offer had to pass a strict true freebie test where you didn’t need to buy something in order to get the freebie (ie. Buy 1 Get 1 Free coupon).  I had pulled out any out of date Birthday offers that were no longer a true freebie.

    I will go into detail of how to sign up and claim each of the freebie offers.

    FREE Makeup!


    1. Free Makeup from Sephora!

    Choose between two Birthday Freebies: Free makeup kit or Free Skincare kit. The birthday freebies are Sephora changes once a year. You can see the current Birthday Freebie items here.

    At the time of this writing, I was able to get the Kat Von D Beauty kit – came with eyeliner, setting powder and lipstick sample.

    How to Sign up to Sephora Birthday Freebie:

    How to Claim Sephora Birthday Freebie:

    • You can redeem at any point during your birthday month. If your birthday is at the start or end of the month, you can also redeem 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after your actual birthday date.
    • You don’t need an email. Just walk into any Sephora stores, including Sephora inside JCPenney , give the cashier your email or phone number associated with your Beauty Insider membership and let them know you would like to redeem your birthday freebie.
    • If you have an issues (ie. Wrong birthday set in your account). Open up a chat with Sephora customer service to get it corrected.

    2. Free Makeup from Ulta

    Ulta offers Free Full-Size makeup as Birthday gift to its Ultimate Rewards Members each year with a special code sent in email. You want to make sure your birthday is actually set in your profile.

    The actual Birthday Freebie item will change every few weeks. At the time of this writing, I had gotten a Free Tarte Liquid Lipstick. They had 4 shades to choose from.

    How to Sign Up for Ulta Birthday Freebie:

    How to Claim Ulta Birthday Freebie:

    • You will need the actual email containing your Birthday Freebie claim code in order to get the Free makeup. You can show this email from your phone or print it out.
    • Birthday emails are sent out at the 1st and 15th of the month. And you have 30 days to redeem the coupon.
    • If you did not receive this email, call customer service, and they can force sent the email to you containing this code.

    3. Free $10 from The Body Shop

    The Body Shop offers one of the my favorite Free Birthday Gifts to its members: $10 to Spend on Anything in the store! YAY! There were a ton of stuff to choose from that were $10 and less in stores (Lipstick, Bodywash, Matte Clay foundation, travel size lotions, tea tree oil, bath sponges and tons of accessories).

    You do not need to pay tax on the amount the reward covers, so if you find something for exactly $10, you leave paying $0. I had tested with a $7 item to see how taxes were treated, and there was no tax. The Free Gift coupon worked on products under $10.

    How to Sign Up for The Body Shop Birthday Free Gift:

    • Sign up to Love Your Body Club for Free
    • Make sure your loyalty card is linked to your online account by checking the following:
      • Click “My Accounts” and “Profile”
      • Check the box “Yes I want to join”

    How to Claim The Body Shop Birthday Free Gift:

    • The Free $10 Birthday Reward will show up under “Vouchers” online. You can login to check if the $10 is there. You may not receive an email about it.
    • You don’t need to print or show anything. Once you know your $10 Birthday Reward is in your account by checking that it’s listed under “Vouchers”, go into any Body Shop store. Simply give the cashier your phone number at checkout and they can apply the Freebie to your transaction.
    • If you did not receive a Birthday Freebie Voucher during your birthday month, chat with customer service to get it fixed. You may need to sign up a month before your birthday to receive this email.  I had signed up mid-month during my birthday month, and customer service helped me get this resolved.
    • The Birthday Voucher Reward is suppose to expire after 30 days. However, my replacement reward had a 3 month expiration.

    4. Free Makeup from BareMinerals

    BareMinerals offers a Free Full-Size Makeup item for reward members of FAB (Friends and Benefits). The actual makeup item can change from year to year. Currently, the Free Birthday Gift item is a Free Full-Size Loose Mineral Eyeshadow that retails for $15!

    How to Sign up for BareMinerals Birthday Freebie:

    • Sign up to BareMinerals FAB here
    • They require that you sign up the month before your birthday in order to receive your birthday email on the first of the month. Otherwise your first Free reward goes out next year.

    How to Claim BareMinerals Birthday Freebie:

    • You need the actual Birthday email from BareMinerals to claim the Freebie.
    • Birthday emails containing the Free product coupon is sent out on the 1st of the month
    • If you signed up after the 1st, there is currently no way for them to resend the email, even if you contact customer service. (It used to be you can just show your license in-stores, but they have since changed this policy)

    FREE Food – Breakfast!


    5. Free Breakfast from Denny’s

    Score a FREE Grand Slam Breakfast at Denny’s on your actual Birthday! One of my favorites from the list. So easy to do. You don’t need to bring a coupon or signup for anything. Just bring your ID. Show your ID when you go to the front to pay. They will adjust your bill such that your Breakfast is Free. Let the server know, so they can show you where on the menu to look.

    6. Free Food or Drink from Starbucks

    Starbucks Rewards Members get a Free Birthday Food Item or Drink item on your actual Birthday! Free to signup. Download the Starbucks app and sign into your account.

    The coupon will automatically be loaded onto your account on your birthday. Simply select to redeem your birthday reward during checkout. You can order ahead from the app or in-stores.

    I got a reminder email a day before my birthday letting me know to keep an eye out for it.

    Since you can redeem on any food item or drink item of ANY size, the best value is on the pre-packaged food items like my favorite Chicken and Quinoa Protein Bowl, which sells for $8.45!

    You must join Starbucks Rewards at least 7 days prior to your birthday.

    7. Free Bruegger’s Bagels

    Get a Birthday Coupon for a Free Bagel with Cream Cheese from Bruegger’s Bagels by signing up to their Inner Circle Rewards.

    I received an email the day before my birthday, with a barcode in my email. You can also get this barcode in their app under your account. The coupon had two weeks expiration date on it.  We got the Sun Dried Tomatoes Bagels Toasted. SO Good!

    To redeem: print email or show barcode from your phone.

    8. Free iHop Pancakes

    Score a coupon for a FREE Full Stack of ANY Pancakes on the menu from iHop for MyHop reward members. I had received this birthday email 5 days before my birthday and it had a 14 day expiration date.

    Additionally, you get a Free Stack of Pancakes for signing up, and during your MyHop Signup Anniversary.

    Note that during signup they ask you for your preferred location. The Birthday Freebie email will state this preferred location on the coupon, where it will be valid.

    To redeem: print out the coupon and give it to your server.

    FREE Birthday Shopping!


    9. Free $5 to $15 from DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse)

    You get a Free $5 Rewards on your Birthday Month from Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW) for MyPerk Members. Free to Sign Up online! Members also get Free Shipping for ANY online order. Sweet! That means you can use your Free rewards online easily with Free Shipping.

    Plus, if you are new, you get FREE $10 just for Signing up. I received an email and text alert about the Free $10 roughly 5 days after signing up to MyPerk.

    So I had a total of $15 to spend. Note that just like at the Body Shop, there are no tax on the portion of the transaction that the reward covers. So you can buy an item for exactly $15 or $10 or $5 (depending on what reward you have), and leave the store without paying anything.

    To redeem: Tell them your phone number at checkout to pull up your account. Your rewards should be loaded in your account automatically. My $10 welcome reward wasn’t in my account for some reason. I got around this by printing the promotional page linked to the email and text alert about the Free $10. It had a promo code on it that the cashier was able to enter in manually. The $5 Birthday Reward pulled up with my account with no problems.

    10. Free $5 from Famous Footwear

    Score a FREE $5 Birthday Reward Cash from Famous Footwear for Famously You Rewards Members (Free to sign up). Members also get Free Shipping on all orders online.

    Birthday emails are sent out the month BEFORE your birthday month. So you would technically sign up 2 months before your birthday month to receive this email.

    Since I had signed up during my birthday month, Customer Service via chat was able to issue me a Free $5 Gift Card instead, sent to my email. Sweet!
