The Fig team loves birthdays. We also, as you may know, love a deal. In this post, we combine our passion for deals with our deep appreciation for birthdays to present a comprehensive list of businesses that will give you free stuff or discounts on your birthday. If you like to ball on a budget, then read this list, and on your birthday, do it big!

For your convenience, we have organized this list by category so you can quickly find what you need. Also, receiving and redeeming many of these freebies typically requires joining the company's loyalty programs. To avoid having this clog up your inbox and ruin your inbox 0 goals, we recommend making another email address just for coupons/promotions and checking it periodically. Now, go forth and treat yourself.

Sephora's rewards program is lit, and you can get a free gift, without purchase, on your birthday gift.

World Market is low key one of my favorite stores, and they have a good rewards program with birthday reward.


A&W offers a birthday root beer float when you join their Mug Club.

Arby's offers a free milkshake on your b-day when you join their email list. Their milkshake will definitely bring me to the yard (sorry).

Moe’s Southwest Grill is underrated and will give you free queso for joining their Rockin' Rewards, and a free birthday burrito.
