One reader maximized her birthday & store rewards to score an entire outfit for FREE.

Did you know that you can score all kinds of free goodies on your birthday? Many stores and restaurants are happy to offer customers everything from free desserts to discounted activities.

This week’s Happy Friday reader, Heather, just celebrated a birthday and spoiled herself with freebies! She recently was able to snag an entire outfit from Express and the store only charged her for shipping. 🙌

Here’s how Heather did it!

“Yesterday was my birthday, and thanks to the Hip2Save birthday deals post, I’m racking up the freebies! My best deal was scoring an ENTIRE outfit (pants, bodysuit, and earrings) from Express for just the price of shipping.”

“Express rewards is an awesome program, even for those who don’t have a birthday coming up. I was able to accumulate $55 in Express Cash just by signing up and completing the rewards challenges available on the landing page.”

“Combining this rewards cash with the 25% text incentive coupon and a great 40% off sale saved me over $107.00!”

Way to go, Heather!! That is an incredible birthday haul and such a cute outfit (we are obsessed with bodysuits)! 🎉

We love how you cleverly maximized your birthday discount by stacking it with a sale and your Express rewards. Many people may not know that you can pair all these discounts together so thank you so much for sharing with us how you scored this stylish outfit. 😍

Your advice is sure to help readers hoping to snag a deal at Express! I can’t wait to try it when my own birthday rolls around!

    I do this all the time, usually just small items from the clearance section, but they make great fillers for birthdays and Christmas! just recently scored a pair of gold hoop earrings for free because I had a free shipping code as well!

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing your recent score, Mrs. C!

    A few times I’ve left some stuff in my cart and a few days later I would get an email with a free shipping code to complete my order.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! 🎉🙌 Thanks for the heads up on how you’ve been able to grab free shipping!

    Heather, you’re a birthday freebie genius! I’ve been a fan of EMUCoupon for finding great deals, and your strategy of combining birthday discounts, Express rewards, and additional coupons is a game-changer. It’s awesome that you shared your experience, and I can’t wait to try it out on my birthday. Have you discovered any other unique ways to maximize birthday freebies or store rewards? I’m always looking for savvy tips like yours!
