    Birthday freebies? 29th Sep 09 at 11:45 PM
    Hi

    I came across a site which gave details of companies that send u freebies on your birthday if you have signed up to them, but it was for the US only. Does anyone know of any such offers for the UK?

    Barnacles chipshops let you have a free chippy tea on your birthday. Not sure Barnacles are just in Teesside though? I know if you're on the mailing list for some nightclubs in the North you get sent drinks vouchers and free entry stuff on your birthday

    Om my birthday this year I got a 30ml Anew Thermalift Face Lifting Cream (priced £20 in current brochure!) from Avon. Wicked! Not sure if you'd get it if you've never bought anything from them (which I do but not frequently - £3.50 postage!) but worth a try!

    I don't usually have fast food, but a free McDonalds would be nice - the large corporations make enough money, so a free meal would be good!

    Hi,
    Join up with your local Gala bingo hall and they'll give you a free afternoon/nights bingo session for you and 2 friends on your birthday! Plus get 50 Nectar points whenever you attend and swipe your membership card. These can be cashed in for vouchers/gift cards which you can use towards free games, food and booze... Also, I think there's a Festival of Free Bingo nationwide this week (18-22nd Oct) but best check there website for details.
    The top bingo prize is the High 5 £250,000 twice a day game. Good luck...

    cupcakelady - you are making me think of cake again when your name alone always makes me think of icing, light sponge, mmmm - butter cream!!!!!!!! etc!!!!!!!! and for some unkown reason, always home-made chocolate or brightly decorated ones!

    Have signed up to various things, normally 'food outlets' that send through e-mails with offers on, e.g. a bottle of wine or free dessert but only if you go to the place and buy a main course or have a certain number of people booked in there. Do get a few cards from various clubs/panels: am just trying to recall, Jack Daniels is one, some cheerful children's ones that I do on behalf of neices and nephews have sent them to me instead, Crayola for example, but can't think of any actual physical items that come through the post at the mo. Will post if I think of any.

    Last year I sent of for every freebie under the sun and although I couldn't resist opening some, I put a lot in a bag unopened. I filled an 'industrial sized' (well, one of those huge, gussetted) Lidl bags and had the mother of all Christmas stockings! Depends what freebies are around and whether or not you open them as they come but as most don't have any indication of what they are on the outside, i had some really nice surprises like full size make up and edible treats as well as some useful household items.

    Will post again if any come to mind.

    Do you know if they all do this and how do we go about getting it?

    Hope this doesn't sound silly - do we just walk in on day with proof of date and ask for one?
