A lot of retailers send you coupons during the month of your birthday if you subscribe to their emails, but some retailers send REALLY GOOD coupons! I turn 30 this Valentine’s Day! This morning I printed all the coupons I received for my birthday so far and had a “Treat Your Self” day – budget style! I left the house with my coupons, $25, and some pocket change.
Here are my favorite birthday coupons and what I was working with today:
Charming Charlie: $5 off any purchase! I got a scarf for 46¢.
Gordmans: $5 off any purchase! I got a much needed travel mug for $2.18 (there were plenty of options I could have purchased for pennies).
McAlisters Deli: $5 off any purchase! I got a very large lunch and tea today for $4.86.
Kohls: $10 off any purchase! Gold Star Clearance is going on and they also had a $10 off $30 coupon out (because the birthday coupon lasts all month, you can wait for another good coupon to stack with)! I got a pair of Vera Bradley jeans and a pair of Dana Buchman dress pants for $12.32!!
Victoria’s Secret: $10 off any purchase (Angel Card Member)! I also paired this with one of their free underwear coupons. I got two pairs of underwear for 55¢!
JCPenney: $10 off $10 purchase (actually not a birthday reward, just a regular coupon). I purchased a cute flyaway sweat jacket for $5.13! (Again I could have walked out with something for practically free – lots of things on clearance priced right over $10.)
GRAND TOTAL = ONLY $25.50 for everything pictured + lunch!
