For some really awesome Freebies for your special day make sure you sign up for email updates for all your favorite restaurants and stores. Many of them will ask for your date of birth and this is terriffic because it is the first sign that they will send you something special in your email just before your birthday (to be used by an expiration date or on your birthday itself). My last birthday I had so many offers I could not use them all. So I got to pick and choose the best of the best.
Sign up for SEPHORA at https://www.sephora.com/profile/MyAccount/beautyInsider/beautyInsider.jsp and you will receive a special birthday surprise, but the fun does not stop there…. just stop by when you are out shopping and many times they will have a free sample just for the asking.
