Welcome back delightful readers! Media Manager Bradley Wilson back again this week with another bargain for everyone to enjoy.
This week’s bargain is a result of my Spring Break birthday experience. That’s right; your author is now seventeen years old (Happy Birthday to Me!). About a week before my birthday, I was thinking to my self, “Self, I wonder how much free stuff I can snag for my birthday online.” A quick Google search later, and my email box was all set up to be flooded with free birthday coupons.
This is something that I feel needs to be taken advantage of by more people. My firm belief is that, if companies or restaurants are willing to give you free stuff, then you might as well take advantage of it.
Just as a reminder, or in case you are new to the column, the basic format of the article will be a slight introduction (what, where, how, etc.) of the bargain, and then some further information and details about specifics of the bargain, and then on to why the particular bargain grabbed the top spot for the week.
Bargain: Birthday Coupons
What: Free or Discounted Food
Price: Generally Free
Where: Local Restaurants, Chain Restaurants
Details and Specifics:
There are a few things worth noting about free birthday coupons. First, you do have to sign up online about a week before your actual birthday prior to receiving the coupons in your inbox. Also, you will want to fill out legitimate information on the companies respective websites because many of the restaurants will ask for an I.D. to make sure that it’s you redeeming your coupon. The e-coupons will be sent to your email inbox starting about three days before your birthday and continue coming all the way through your birthday, depending on the company.
Lastly, the coupons I received did not have to be redeemed on your actual birthday, and usually you had at least a week, if not more, in order to redeem them, although I did end up redeeming five of them on my actual birthday.
Here’s a brief list of all the coupons I signed up for and received:
Culvers- Free 1 Scoop Sundae
Baskin Robbins- Free Scoop of Ice Cream
Ben and Jerry’s- Free Scoop of Ice Cream
Coldstone- Free Creation with One Mix-In
Fuddruckers-Free Value Meal
Flattop Grill- Free Stir-Fry
Famous Daves BBQ-Free Meal
Qdoba- Free Burrito
Auntie Annies Pretzels- Free Pretzel with Purchase of Another
In addition to these, a few of the companies sent me free stuff just for signing up to the birthday or e-club. If you go to the website heyitsfree.net, you can find many more companies and restaurants that are willing to give you free stuff.
Why Birthday Coupons are my bargain of the week:
What’s better on a birthday than lots of free food? Nothing. Okay, well maybe some things, but free birthday food can’t hurt. I was pleasantly surprised when I Googled “free birthday coupons” to see how many results came up. It is a fabulous feeling to be able to walk into a restaurant, use your coupon, and not have to even struggle for your wallet in your pocket. It’s also nice that the coupons are redeemable for many more days than your actual birthday. I wish you all luck in getting as much free food on your birthday as possible.
DISCLAIMER: Don’t expect the people to wish you happy birthday when using your coupon.
