I hate birthdays. But this helps.

The month of June is almost here and it's my absolute favorite month of the year. Mainly because that means it's officially summer but it's also my birthday month! I hate getting older (and getting more wrinkles) but one thing that helps is getting free stuff from stores and restaurants that I love. This year, I remembered to make sure I'm getting as many birthday freebies as possible. Tim and I live for a good coupon and a lot of restaurants will give you a free meal to use during the month of your birthday! All you have to do is sign up for their email list. Since it's hard to remember to do this before our birthdays, I compiled all of my favorites! Free Stuff

Anthropologie - They give you a birthday discount! I think it's 15% coupon and a couple of years ago I got a cute little birthday candle necklace in the mail with my coupon!

Auntie Anne's - Last time it was a buy one get one free deal! (Date night! The Gilleans love pretzels.)

Aveda - They give awesome birthday gifts. A couple of years ago I got to make my own lotion scent and it wasn't a tiny little bottle. It was full size! Not sure what the gift is this year but I bet it's good. To sign up, look in the upper right corner and you'll see "email sign-up", hover over that and a box will pop up where you'll enter your info.

Cold Stone Creamery - They give you a buy one get one free deal.

Einstein Bagels - This is one of my FAVORITE places. This is the first year I've signed up for theirs so I'm not sure what the gift is but they promise a birthday offer!

Firehouse Subs - They give you a free sub on your birthday! And I don't think you even have to sign up for anything, just bring your I.D. to the restaurant on your b-day!

Genghis Grill - They give you a free birthday bowl. And if I remember correctly, you can use it any day of your birthday month.

Qdoba - A free gift on your birthday!

Sephora - Sign up for their beauty insider club and get a gift on your birthday! A couple of years ago it was an awesome Sugar lip balm set.

Starbucks - Register a gift card and get a free drink on your birthday!

Victoria's Secret - I think they give you a $10 coupon to use sometime during your birthday month! Plus they're always sending good coupons throughout the year.

Zoe's Kitchen - I love love love Zoe's Kitchen. I'm not sure what the birthday deal is but any excuse to eat dinner here is fine by me.
