As we get older, birthday gifts tend to become less and less grand. While this is no surprise, it can be kind of a downer. Instead of accepting mediocre gifts on your birthday this year, go on a hunt for freebies and discounts that are only available on your special day! This will make celebrating even more fun and easier on your wallet. There are so many places and stores that will give you freebies and heavily discounted products on your birthday, we couldn't fit all of them into a single list! Below are just 10 birthday rewards that you have to know about before planning your next celebration:
Fancy yourself a free drink? You can get your caffeine fix at no cost when you head to Starbucks on your birthday! Whether you're obsessed with cold brew, crave a chai latte, or need a sugary Frappuccino - Starbucks has you covered. So be sure to take time on your special day to stop by your local Starbucks and grab some much-needed caffeine.
If you're looking for a new addition to your makeup bag, you definitely need to stop by Smashbox on your birthday. With daily deals and discounts on high end makeup, it's no surprise that Smashbox is one of our favorite makeup brands. On your birthday, this retailer will give you a free small gift from their gorgeous beauty line when you stop into one of their stores.
Also known as the cupcake company of Hollywood, Sprinkles makes some of the best sweet treats out there.

Whether you're into skincare or makeup, Sephora has the perfect beauty bundle for you!
