You know what I really love? Free stuff. I know, I know, everybody loves free stuff, but it is truly like heaven to me and I will do whatever I can to get my hands on things for zero dollars.
So, with my birthday less than a month away, I decided to calculate exactly how much stuff I can cop for absolutely nothing.
Most brands offer some sort of birthday “gift”, but as a certified Cheapo™, I’m not interested in discount codes and buy-one-get-one-free offers. I just wanted to calculate exactly how much I can get using the “it’s my birthday” card. So, without further ado, here’s a comprehensive list of all of the things you can cop for $0 for your birthday
Sure, you can cop even more freebies if you make the most of the buy-one-get-one-free offers, half price deals and various percentages off you can get on your special day. But let’s be real here, we’re in a recession and maybe you don’t have extra money to spare. Thankfully, there’s a whole heap of stuff you can get without having to spend a cent.
If you play your cards right, you could cop 13 free meals, 7 free drinks, 12 free desserts/snacks, $35 worth of vouchers, a free set of eyebrows and a $1 entry to see some giraffes at the zoo. The actual dollar value varies depending on which meals/drinks you choose, but it’s easily a couple of hundred dollars worth of stuff for literally zero dollars.
