Free Stuff on Your Birthday Without Signing Up
With many of these businesses, in order to get your free gift, you will have to sign up in advance. So, whenever you come across something interesting to have as your free birthday gift, be sure to sign up for their newsletter or on their site.
It’s always free to sign up anyway.
I know a lot of people don’t like the idea of having to signup for websites/companies and their newsletters in order to get free stuff, but that’s the way most companies do this.
Now, for most people I know, the reason for this dislike is that they don’t want to be bombarded with emails. Having your inbox full of newsletter emails is not something to look forward to.
But there is a simple way to get around this issue…
Create a throw-away email just for the purpose of signing up for birthday freebies.
If you still want to use your personal email address and you have a full inbox, be sure to use this simple trick to find all the emails that can get you free stuff on your birthday – simply search for “Happy Birthday” in your inbox.
This will instantly bring up all the emails from companies you had signed up for before, making it easy to locate the emails that contain your ticket (read coupon, voucher) for your birthday freebie.
