I love freebies -- especially on my birthday.
For my birthday yesterday my sweet daughter made me a gift
certificate for a free massage, hair-do and makeover. And my
husband promised to do a day's worth of yard work free of
The Kip Tips iPad App
Now, getting your hair and makeup done by a 7-year-old -- even
for free -- may not be your ideal birthday gift (it's the thought
that counts, right?). But there are plenty of other birthday
freebies available to anyone. Here are ten:
Barnes & Noble
. Kids get a free cupcake on their birthday and can create a free
digital book on Tikatok.com by signing up for the
Barnes & Noble Kids' club
. You can get a free 2.5-ounce scoop on your birthday (plus special
offers and coupons) if you sign up for the Baskin-Robbins Birthday
or on the
Baskin-Robbins Facebook page
. If you join
The Chef's Table
, Benihana will e-mail you a $30 gift certificate during the month
of your birthday. Children 12 and younger will receive a free mug

Plenty of other restaurants, such as Maggiano's and Red Lobster,
offer unspecified birthday freebies for subscribing to their e-mail
lists. And several restaurants, such as Don Pablo's, P.F. Chang's
and T.G.I. Friday's, give you free birthday treats if you join
their rewards programs, which let you accrue points when you dine
Hey, It's Free! also has a long
list of birthday freebies
. If you don't see your favorite establishment on the list, it
doesn't mean that you can't get a freebie there on your birthday.
Ask your server or the store clerk about birthday specials.
