It’s no secret that restaurants will hook you up with all kinds of free goodies on your birthday. But really – how many birthday appetizers and desserts can one person eat?! Thankfully, there are lots of non-edible birthday freebies to be had on your birthday, too!


1. Aveda

3. Benefit Boutiques

Benefit Brow bar

Pamper yourself with a FREE birthday brow arch at a Benefit Boutique near you! Simply show your ID during the calendar week of your birthday to get this freebie – no purchase or membership is required!

8. DSW

K. Bell socks at DSW

Join DSW Rewards to get a $5 birthday offer to use toward any purchase! While $5 won’t likely buy you a pair of shoes, check out their cute socks and accessories! This offer is valid any day during your birthday month.

Get $5 in Birthday Reward Cash when you sign up for Famously You Rewards. Just like at DSW, try to cruise the accessory section or look for items on clearance to see how you can convert this birthday offer into a fun freebie!

ikea shopping tips — join IKEA family for savings and benefits

Join the IKEA FAMILY loyalty program, and you’ll receive a birthday email containing a coupon good for $15 off of any purchase. Since there is no minimum purchase requirement and $15 dollars can go a long way at IKEA, this should make for an awesome freebie. Come back and let us know what you got!


11. Madewell

Madewell tote bags

Become a Madewell Insider before your birthday month, and you’ll receive an offer for $25 off a purchase! Since you do have to spend $26 dollars or more to redeem this birthday offer, I suppose you can’t technically trade it in for a freebie. But you should be able to grab something pretty awesome without spending more than a buck or two!


12. NYX Professional Makeup

NYX lip products

Join the NYX Professional Makeup Makeup Crew and receive $5 off of a purchase during your birthday month. This birthday reward should be plenty to score yourself a fun freebie from this affordable makeup brand!

  1. Suzanne

    Ikea family members get a coupon every year. This year was a $15 off any purchase.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks for letting us know, Suzanne!

      • boltsmom

        I’ve gotten $15 the past two years plus a free meal and dessert (and drink, but that’s available every day for IKEA Family members).

        • Tico

          I’ve never received those coupons,did you get it by email?

          • Lori

            I’ve never gotten this birthday coupon either and we shop at IKEA several times a year. 😟

          • JC

            Hubby is a member and we got the $15 coupon and free meal through email.

            The free meal is like this:
            Enjoy your choice of a Meatball Entrée with either DAIM cake or Blueberry mousse from the IKEA Restaurant.

  2. Jennifer

    Kohls sends you $5.00 to spend.

    • mel

      I got 10 maybe because I have a kohls card

      Also Victoria’s secret sent me 10 ( I have a cc) and a free panty and 25 percent off pink item and a 15 percent off

      • BrBa

        No, I got $10 and I’m not a Kohl’s cardholder.

  3. Kianna

    For my birthday, I got 40$ from express

    • Shweta Tanna

      How to subscribe for it

  4. mckeeversmom

    Rite Aid sends their customers a 25% discount code. It’s good on regular priced items and if the discount is greater than the sale price reduction, the 25% comes off that price, too. It’s good for your birthday month, I think. You have to have one of their rewards cards though.

  5. Tracy

    The last 2 years, I’ve gotten $50 off $100 coupon from Land’s End and has been helpful for getting kids’ uniforms and swimsuits for summer.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      NICE score for sure! Thanks for sharing with us, Tracy!

  6. Kk

    Slumberland sends out $25 off of $50

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the heads up!

  7. Briana

    Kirkland also gives gift like a candle on the birthday month.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks, Briana!

  8. Karen

    Kendra Scott gives you 50% off one item during birthday month. Madewell insiders (free to join) gives you $20 no minimum purchase required. Tory Burch gives you $50- can be used on sale items. Been able to get wallets under $75.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How neat! Thanks for letting us know about those, Karen!

  9. Laura

    Been an Ulta rewards member for a few years and never received any birthday gifts. I rarely shop there but checked my account and it is active. I have emailed them about gift.

    • Brooke

      Hi Laura, I could be wrong but I think you just go in sometime during your birthday month. I’ve never received anything in my email either, but I’ve went in and asked for it and they were happy to give me whatever the item was. On one occasion, I didn’t even ask. The employee just said, “here’s your free birthday gift and reminded me that the date was approaching. Lol, I try to forget sometimes!

      • Laura

        Ulta emailed stating I didn’t receive an email about the gift because you must make a purchase within 6mth prior to bday.
        They emailed me some code to show at store to get a gift. Anyone know what the gifts are?

        • Susan S.

          Just got mine. It was a Benefit hoola bronzer valued at $16. I am a diamond member so not sure if gift varies depending on what level rewards member you are. Plus I got a $10 off coupon.

          • BrBa

            The Ulta bday gift changes quarterly, so what you get is based only on your birth month and not on which tier of the Rewards membership program you belong to.

            To OP, right now it’s a deluxe sized sample of the Benefit Hoola bronzer (in-store only). I also got a $10 coupon (valid in-store/online and works on prestige w/ some exclusions) and 2X points on all purchases in your birth month. HTH

            • Mysty

              I work at Ulta. The physical birthday gift is the same for every tier, but the $10 coupon is only for Platinum and Diamond level loyalty customers. Hope that helps!

    • Gina G.

      I’ve never received one either and I can’t go in store because there isn’t one close to me.

    • Tracey

      I asked about during the month of my b/day; they said for me to call corporate and get something they can scan… Seems like my driver’s license would be sufficient and when they enter my ulta rewards card number, it will show if I try to get it more than once.. I never called as I was disappointed in their program.

      • Kandice

        The scan isn’t to verify your identity or rewards profile. They have to have the coupon code to scan

  10. An

    Madewell gives you $25 off a purchase for your birthday

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, An! Good to know!

  11. Joana

    Is the Benefit Brow gift available at the Ulta locations?J

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      It looks like they might! When checking for a boutique location near me, my local ULTA store does pop up. Hope this helps!

  12. Jamie

    At Chuck E Cheese, we only got a coupon for 100 free tickets if we made a food purchase.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing your experience, Jamie. I wonder if it may vary by location.

  13. Christina

    Vera Bradley gives you 30% off a transaction during your birth month.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thank you!

    • Tina

      My coupon was combinable with the sale so it was worthless. Won’t bother with they coupon again

  14. Patty

    Interesting…I have many of these accounts and didn’t receive anything for my birthday which was last week.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Maybe check the spam, junk or promotions folders of your email. Hoping you find a few! Happy Birthday!

  15. April

    My birthday was Monday and I am a member of all these rewards listed and didn’t receive any of these emails. Just the typical sales emails. Even Rack Room shoes didn’t send me me my usual $10 or $15 off even though I spent money this year. My food freebies came through, not all of them like Panda Express.

    • JA

      My birthday was Monday also! Happy birthday! My apps are overflowing with so many great food offers, I have to strategically plan to use them all up before they expire. The only non-food bday treat I got was a $10 off regular price item at Pink. No more free undies coupon. But I’m not going to complain for 50 cents. Not sure if I got a Famous Footwear one this year. Need to check

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Happy Birthday gals!

  16. missy

    Finish line gives $10 to rewards members

    • boltsmom

      And it can be combined with sales! I got my son BOGO socks and used the $10 off coupon at Finish Line!

  17. Cathy

    I went to the Mall yesterday with my birthday emails: $10 Victoria’s Secret, $15 Finish Line, free pendant Helzberg Diamonds, $10 Express, $20 Lane Bryant, $10 Kohls, $5 Famous Footwear, and $5 DSW. I had so much fun and didn’t spend much out of pocket. I still have free wings from BWW, free burger from Red Robin, free appetizer at Texas Roadhouse, Qdoba free entree and the bronzing powder from Ulta.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      That sounds like a lot of fun and goodies, Cathy!

  18. Carol

    Now you tell me. May birthday.

  19. EY

    My birthday was in July, and from Bare Minerals, I got a free eye shadow instead of lipstick. Just FYI! Either way, a pretty generous gift!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for letting us know, EY! Sounds pretty awesome!

  20. Vanessa

    Thanks so much for this list. My birthday is just before Thanksgiving, so I enjoy spending all my birthday rewards/coupons from various stores, during BF week. I need to sign up for a few more on this list.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome! What a fun week to get freebies, Vanessa!!

  21. Coupon Katie

    My birthday is next month so I double checked to be sure my birthday was included in all of my online account profiles. 🙂 thanks for the heads up!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! Happy Birthday!

  22. Lee

    Ulta sends me the coupon every year for my birthday and every year they are “out of the birthday gift”. Didn’t even try this year.

  23. Courtney

    Perfect timing! My birthday is next weekend!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Happy Birthday, Courtney! 🥳

  24. Jen

    Thank you so much for this post, and to those commenting with additional info. There are some I hadn’t heard of, so I’m happily signing up for them!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Oh good! You’re welcome, Jen!

  25. Valerie

    Big Lots gives out a 15% off total purchase coupon that is redeemable with other coupons. I combined my 15% birthday coupon WITH the storewide 20% off promotion last month (usually only have the 2 day event in April, October I believe) and saved $1,300 on the furnishing of,my new home!!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh wow! That’s awesome savings for sure, Valerie! Thanks for sharing with us!

  26. Courtney

    Thank you!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re so welcome, Courtney!

  27. Tiara D

    08/19: the free brow treatment program @ Benefit inside Ulta was discontinued years ago, per the Ulta locations & the benefit brow bar & cosmetics leads within 🙁

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing with us! Good to know!

  28. Rn

    So I was telling my DH that I just got my free nail polish from CVS for my birthday; he said, “what do guys get?” Hmmm… hopefully not nail polish! Well, HE wouldn’t want it! haha
