and the birthday keeps on giving..........

I don't know about you but I have signed up for things over the year's and some sites ask for your birth date so they can send you a treat/code/discount on your birthday.

I have taken advantage of a couple of them.  I was driving past Panera bread, boy is that place expensive.  Anyhow I had a code for a free birthday treat up to $5.  So I picked up this cookie.  It's a Kitchen Sink Cookie and costs $4.19 CDN.  It is huge and really good, but I would not buy one for that price.

The Body Shop gave me $10 in points to spend in store.  So I went in to buy some soap at the outlet.  However it is now $7 a bar; granted there is a buy one, get the second item for 50% off.  I still think it's a bit steep for a bar of soap.  They had this three pack of body butter's on clearance for $11.
I use the body butter all the time and really like the Shea one, so this will come in very handy.

I ended up paying $1.13 for this and had had to go to the outlet mall to pick up something for dd, so killed two birds in one.

I do have some  more discount codes I could use and a $10 of my purchase coupon for a store I could use.  If I am passing any of these before they expire I may use them, however I will not go out of my way to use them.

Do you get freebies on your birthday?

Looks like you garnered some nice goodies but I agree that's too much for a cookie (free is good!). I don't seem to have myself on any of the lists for birthday freebies, sadly. Living in a small-ish town means we don't have places like the Body Shop available, even more sadly.

Panera is overall super expensive. Both of my teens really like it, so I try to buy their gift cards on sale, use their app for rewards, and look for offers. It's still pricey, but a bit better when you do those things.

I gave up going to Panera, very expensive. I got some birthday deals and discounts, don't always use them especially if they are food places. Being gluten free limits lots of options.

Some of the free things I see are just not in this area even though this a a big town. However, in the past I have gotten more freebies than I have lately. I love a free cookie.
