Free stuff on your birthday without signing up
With many of these businesses, in order to get your free gifts, 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.
But I don’t want to sign up for useless stuff!
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 separate email account 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, there is an easy way to quickly find every single freebies sent to your inbox on your big day.
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 coupons, discount code or your birthday freebie.
