    Vintage Inns email a voucher for you to get a bottle of bubbly when 4 or more people have a main meal in the week before or after your birthday.

    I was told in Hobbycraft that I'd get a 5 birthday voucher if I signed up for a loyalty card and gave them my D.O.B - I didn't receive one though.

    To my amusement, I got a chit for a free bar of top end own brand Morrisons chocolate.
    And left son gawking as he held the shopping & I marched the coupon to the shelf, picked my preferred bar & pattered back to the till & redeemed it.
    There's still one piece left - it is *nice*, so I am rationing it to make it last longer!

    Seems Body Shop, Superdrug, & IKEA, have all forgotten me & Playmobil have decided that I'm not a child. (Drat them.)

    I got a Disney Store voucher code for my birthday month - around this time last year a lot of people were saying their Disney Store birthday codes weren't working - I never got to use it, but I tried it this year and it worked.

    Yes, I have. IKEA send an email, then you have 3wks or do to visit store and print off your 5 voucher from the machine as you enter. There is no minimum spend either.

    I get a birthday card and some teabags from Yorkshire Tea for my birthday. I sometimes get money off vouchers from clothes shops, but they usually involve spending a certain amount to make use of them (so pretty useless really).
