    I don't seem to have received the Paperchase £5 this year. I've received it in previous years, but not this. Upon checking my online account I've noticed that despite having a card, registering and using it, it no longer seems to be registered on my account. Guess I'll have to contact them and have a moan about it.

    I've also noticed that Morrisons seem to have discontinued their free bar of chocolate on your birthday. Or is it just me that didn't receive a voucher this year?

    I just went into a store in March and asked them to check my card, it was there. Might be worth doing the same? I never got an email or anything about it but I checked anyway :rotfl:

    I've had this problem too. Most years, it shows up on my card no problem, but now my card is showing as unregistered. I did still get a £5 treat last birthday. I think the staff just registered a new card for me.

    I used the contact me form on the website. They've added the birthday treat to my card, but I've had to re-register the card itself myself online.

    I normally get the £5 Body Shop voucher. Last year it worked out perfectly. They had these mini shower gel and lotion sets reduced from £5 to £1 so got 5 completely free. Hurrah.

    JD Gyms send me an email so I can take anyone else for free to the gym during my birthday week. Why do none of my mates want to take me up on this one?

    Boots send me a double points voucher for the whole of my birthday month.

    Also got a voucher via email from Black House Grill which is a posh restaurant in Leeds under the Living Ventures umbrella for a free main when you purchase another one. I signed up to their newsletter many moons ago.

    Has anyone tried being oxygen blasted by Elizabeth Arden in Debenhams? I've got a beauty card there and wouldn't mind trying it out. It just sounds a bit scary.

    Superdrug- x 4 points valid for 2 weeks (and multiple uses I think)

    something off from Bonmarche, All Beauty (10% discount?) Not likely to use either... in fact last time I used a birthday code from BM it said not valid!!

    £5 Hobbycraft- no minimum spend

    But no freebies at all :(

    The only one I am likely to use is Superdrug
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    I got a free Krispy Kreme donut (and remembered to ask for a receipt to get another free next time), a free donut from Greggs and a free muffin with a coffee from Cafe Benugo.
