Whether you’re celebrating your 21st birthday, or looking fondly looking back on those days, birthdays are always a reason to celebrate!
Birthdays are a time to reflect, to be grateful for another year , and to time spent with people who make you happy.
Indulging on your special day doesn’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of stores and restaurants that offer free gifts for your birthday.
All of these treats require minimal effort to create an account by signing up with an email address. If you don’t already, I would suggest setting up a separate email account for store coupons and rewards cards.
Some of the treats don’t have to be collected on your actual birthday – so you can extend your celebration all month long!
