Free Stuff on Your Birthday
Here’s where you can go in Michigan for free stuff on your birthday. My in-box and snail-mail box fill up near my birthday time with free birthday coupons and offers. Some birthday freebies and coupons are better than others and there is no way I can use them all.
Disclaimer: I try to update this page periodically with correct info and links. Deals and offers change frequently so please check with each individual company BEFORE you venture to make sure offers are still valid.

WORST BIRTHDAY FREEBIES
While I’m appreciative for more most Free Stuff on Your Birthday offers, some are pathetic. Here are the lamest ones I’ve encountered.
Free Tater Tots on Your Birthday at Sonic – Not only is this a pretty bad offer, the birthday signup for Sonic is complicated. Too complicated for free tots. You can keep your tots, Sonic.
BOGO Birthday Ice Cream at Cold Stone Creamery – Cold Stone Creamery’s offer basically gives you a BOGO option. Buy any Cold Stone “Creation” and get a second Creation of equal or lesser value free. You have to sign up for their rewards program on their website to get their birthday e-mails and you only have a week to cash it in.
