Best Birthday Freebies


fashion birthday freebies, beauty birthday freebies, free birthday perks


Happy birthday to...me! I wanted to share with you the best birthday freebies and promos that I totally plan to take advantage on this month! I usually do a google search around this time of year to find any new birthday freebies, but the lists I find always include a ton of food deals and not enough fashion and beauty perks that I take advantage of every year.  The perks of having an inbox full of company emails throughout the year is that during your birthday month you usually get a bonus email to include additional coupon codes or better yet a freebie. If you're really committed, you could create a junk gmail account to sign up for as much as possible and check it during your birthday month or for when you want coupons 😜 

These are my favorite birthday freebies I take advantage of every year:


Tory Burch:  Every year I receive a $50 credit towards anything in the Tory Store (no exclusions as far as I know and NO MINIMUM!). A few things I've used it on in the past include this cedar wood candle that I ended up spending under $20 and still keep it as decor in my home. Two years ago I bought these Miller flats that I wear all spring and summer long. A few years back I used it on these stud earrings (again, under $20 on my dime) for these earrings that I still wear on regular rotation in my wardrobe today. This year, I'm looking at these Minnie flats for work, but I'll let y'all know what I decide. The good and bad about a post holiday birthday is the holiday sales (right now it's an additional 30% off), however the inventory is also much lower until they stock up for spring. Please note, I read you have to be signed up for a month prior to your birthday to receive the promotion.

** UPDATE: I received my promotion from TB late, and they've changed it to a $100 minimum purchase and there are a few exclusions to look at. The cute Minnie flats are unfortunately excluded!

Kendra Scott: 50% off one item (no exclusions as far as I know) when you show them your valid drivers lisence during the month of your birthday. Last year, I purchased a bracelet that was on sale and I think it cost me $10. It would also be a great time to purchase your bridal jewelry if you've dreamed of wearing her pieces on your big day! I obsessed with any piece with her iridescent druzy stone. Her Elle earrings are a staple in my wardrobe and I've had them for over three years now. This year, I'm thinking about getting these earrnings that I've been eyeing for a few months! 



Sephora: Signing up to be a Sephora Beauty Insider lets you track points towards samples and you get a free sample set during your birth month. Also, you typically get emails including a coupon usually in April and November which increases based on how much you spend in a calendar year.  I always get the first look at the new Sephora freebie gift. In comparison to years past, they now give you a two options to choose from. This year you can choose between a Tarte blush and lip mini or a Caudalie moisturizer and serum set. I choose the skincare set because I don't need another Tarte blush and the lip color was too dark for me. 

Starbucks: Free drink when you have the Starbucks app on your birthday (I believe it's a three day window), so why not make it a venti :) You also get 15% off your purchase in their store. Hello cute new coffee mug!

Sugarfina: You'll get a coupon for a free cube by signing up for their emails! I recently purchased this cute box in honor of NYE and my birthday because #treatyoself
