how to get free stuff on your birthdayEven if your friends aren’t generous enough to shower you with gifts, you can count on these offers below to spoil you rotten when your anniversary of birth comes around.

All you have to do is sign up to a few newsletters or loyalty schemes here and there (or sometimes just turn up with ID to prove it’s your birthday) and you’ll be able to go on a seriously cheap shopping spree on your big day, whilst being well fed and a bit squiffy from all the free birthday prosecco!

Just make sure you set up a separate email account to sign up for all these deals with, to avoid being bombarded with all the spam (a small price to pay for all the birthday freebies, right?).

While you’re on a wild newsletter sign-up spree, take a look at our guide to the best loyalty cards to see if you’re missing out on any rewards!
