You know I’m ALL about celebrating my birthday! (If you have to get older, why not enjoy it?) I also love a good freebie or discount so I thought I’d put together a list of style and beauty birthday discounts and freebies for you to enjoy on your special day!
Note about receiving discounts/freebies. Most of these require an email address to sign up and if that makes you hesitate, here’s my super easy tip to fix that issue: Create an email account JUST for store signups, discounts, etc. If you want the free stuff and the coupons, you’ve got to give them your email address. You don’t have to hand out your personal account, just create a new email account! Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, etc., they all offer free email accounts, use one!
Also, I first wrote this list in April of 2017 so it’s been updated to reflect current offerings BUT things might have changed so be sure to double check with the stores!
