Birthdays as a kid were always fun! But now, as we get older, we are busy with life and birthdays lose their luster.
C'mon you know that's true. But we do love free stuff, especially on our special day.
Below are 7 different places that offer birthday freebies. But sometimes there's a catch. Birthday deals may still cost you money or require you to sign-up for something or get on an email list. Keep that in mind.
Happy Birthday to you!
