Besides celebrating another year of life on this planet with the people you love, birthdays can also have additional PERKS. Perks that come in the form of freebies, discounts, and all of the sweets you can eat (ok, maybe not ALL you can eat) from all of your favorite places! With pretty much every company offering loyalty or rewards programs that ask you to enter your birthday, it’s no surprise these same companies want to reward you during your birthday month.
In honor of my 29th birthday being only a few days away, I’m sharing my 29 favorite deals for Fashion, Food, Tech/Home, Beauty, and Fitness you can get during your birthday month.
Fashion: Though I’m never one to shop without a rewards card or discount code, there’s something extra special about treating yourself during your birthday month AND getting a great deal, amiright? Plus, how can you go out (or stay in) and celebrate without a new top or dress (or sweatpants)? However you do your birthday, there’s a great deal to be had on a new outfit!
