Gonna Party (for free!) Like It's My Birthday! You can too, check out how......


It's that time of year again! It's the month of my birthday, so it's time to update my list. I'm starting with the list as it's been updated through the year and I'm updating as offers arrive in my inbox again this year.

CVS emails you $3 Extrabucks

Bennigan's closed at the end of the year on Alpine. Now the closest is probably Big Rapids.

Starbucks mails you a postcard for a free drink.

Nature made adds points to your rewards account.

I'll have to update my CVS account. I've never received that one!

Bennigan's has locations still in Lansing, KZoo, Big Rapids and Mt. Pleasant. As well as many others in Michigan and other states. I was sad to see them close on Alpine, but there's a TON of competition over there.

I have yet to receive anything from Starbucks as well and know I'm signed up. I'll add them to the list.

Nature Made is also a new one to me. They are not a brand I use. Thanks!

Gilmore Club restaurants have 3 free lobster meals (at different restaurants) for your birthday. I know Blue Water Grill has a lobster club.

I think for Starbucks you have to register a card to get the freebie kind of like Panera but I have also gotten the postcard.

Dunkin Donuts sends you a coupon in the mail for a free coffee drink the week before your birthday!
