Happy Friday! Let me ask a question: Do you like getting things for free?

Of course you do! Today’s my birthday and it's a true blessing to see another year and to still feel like a vibrant young girl at 30 *smile* Over the past week I’ve been making use of several great free birthday giveaways from various companies that I patronize. Lots of companies give free things to their customers to celebrate their birthdays, and usually there’s no purchase necessary! That’s particularly satisfying when it’s  a company you spend your money with on a regular basis. Here’s a few that I know about – sign up now and they’ll usually email you with the goodies 1-2 weeks before your birthday.

Houlihan’s :: Join their Email Club and get a free entrée for your birthday

Coldstone Creamery :: Join their Birthday club and get a free ice cream creation for your birthday

Starbucks :: Have a Starbucks card? Register it online and get a free drink on your birthday (Note: if you’ve ever gotten a Starbucks gift card, that’s the card. Just register it online; you have to opt-in to receiving offers through the mail)

Sephora :: Join their “Beauty Insiders” club and get a free birthday lipgloss trio

If you know about others, leave a comment and let us know, let’s share the wealth!

Don't forget about Ase Ire's birthday giveaway: A $50 Amazon.com gift certifictate! Comment on any post between now and September 30th and you'll be entered to win!

*Hugs* to all the Virgos!
