Nothing says happy birthday like getting a freebie on your special day! As my own birthday quickly approaches, I thought it appropriate to bring you a list of my personal favorite places to score a freebie so you can take advantage when your day rolls around. This list isn’t exhaustive by any means, so feel free to add ones you love that I missed! Lastly, be sure to share this list with your friends, family, coworkers, and anyone else you think deserves a nice treat on their birthday.
