If you’ve been looking for a fun (and inexpensive) way to keep the birthday celebration going all month long, allow me to introduce you to the world of birthday freebies and discounts from your favorite stores, restaurants, and more! 

One of my favorite parts of my birthday month is registering for as many free items and discounts as I can get, because it keeps the celebration fun as I get older. Free items range from beauty and skincare to desserts, meals, and drinks – and the majority of them only require a simple email signup!

Here are the best free items and discounts available during your birthday month!


We love Sephora for its wide range of beauty products and brands, but they also have an amazing selection of free birthday gifts waiting for you at checkout. As long as you are enrolled in their Sephora Insider program, which is free with an email signup, you can select one of the gifts in-store or online. 

If you walk in-store, you don’t even need to make a purchase (although, why wouldn’t you just look around?). This year, the gifts range from an OUAI haircare sample set to Dior fragrances. 


Similar to the Sephora birthday gift program, Ulta also gives you a little present during your birthday month! Birthday gifts change each month, so check the calendar to see what free item you can receive for your birthday. 

You also get 2X rewards points on any purchases you make during the month, which helps you rack up dollar savings sooner. Win-win!


BareMinerals also offers a birthday gift with purchase! Stop by in-store or shop their site online for a mini blush and mascara duo! All you need to do is sign up for their Good Rewards program prior to your birthday month. 


If you love flattering denim and easygoing fashion, sign up for the Madewell Insiders program on their website. As long as you apply a month before your birthdate, you will receive a lovely $25 off code on your purchase of $25 or more! This coupon is stackable with other sales, and it works on clearance items. 


Abercrombie rewards members receive a 20-30% off discount on one entire purchase during your birthday month, depending on your rewards status. This coupon can be stacked with other sales and coupons, and even works on clearance items! 

In addition to your birthday month discount, Abercrombie rewards members also receive an extra $10 off coupon once a year during your member anniversary month. Sign up now!


If you love Anthropologie like we do, you’ll love their rewards program and birthday discount! Members receive a 15% discount on any one item, in-store or online. And if you redeem your birthday code in-store, they will gift wrap your purchase like a little present to yourself. Yay!

Kendra Scott

Your birthday is the perfect opportunity to pick up a few new sparkly baubles for your jewelry collection. Lucky for you, Kendra Scott offers a 50% discount sent to your email! 


Need a new bathing suit for spring break or comfy loungewear for the weekend? Aerie offers a 25% discount on their wide range of clothing, swimwear, undergarments, and more during your birthday month! Make sure you are signed up for their Real Rewards program prior to your birthday to redeem the coupon. 


If you are signed up for the Starbucks Rewards app, you will receive a free drink coupon on your birthday! You can add as many extras to your beverage as you desire (the perfect time to try out the Sweet Cream Cold foam!). Just show the barista your scannable code on your special day.

Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

If you need extra coffee on your birthday, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf also offers a free drink reward during your birthday month! This coupon typically shows up in your app a few days before your big day, and can be used up to a week after. 


Panera already offers a fantastic drink membership, called Sip Club, for $11.99 a month. But during your birthday month, you can treat yourself to a chocolate croissant with your free pastry coupon! This free treat coupon is emailed to you and can also be accessed online during your order pick-up. 

Nothing Bundt Cakes

Nothing says happy birthday like a free bundlet of your choice! Stop by the cake shop and show the cashier your Eclub coupon for a deliciously decadent personal bundt cake.

Closing Thoughts

Make a list of all the stores and restaurants you signed up for, then sit back and relax as the coupons roll into your inbox. Happy birthday!
