Treat yourself to the max during your birthday month! Here are some brands that offer free gifts and discounts for their members.
Sign up for the Fab Friends and Benefits loyalty program at BareMinerals and you will receive a birthday surprise every year. When your special day rolls around, BareMinerals will email you a redeemable certificate for a makeup item. If you pick up the item from a store, it is 100% free. (Minus the gas or public transport expenses I suppose.) However, if you order your gift online you need to make another purchase in order to receive it. Make sure to pick up your gift or have it delivered within the promotional period.
Register for the Fab Friends and Benefits loyalty program here. It is likely that your birthday gift will be a small item like a lip balm or an eyeshadow.
2. Edible Arrangements
When you sign up for an Edible Rewards membership, make sure to include your birthday information to receive your very own 12-count chocolate dipped fruit box. If you add your birth date at least 24 hours before the first day of your birthday month and you make at least one purchase of $30 or more, you will be eligible to receive your Birthday Club Reward!
To receive your reward, you must redeem it at a nearby location during the month of your birthday. You can also redeem it online, but if you do so, you will have to include it in another order and pay the shipping fee. Learn more about the Edible Arrangements rewards membership here.
Join Anthropologie‘s AnthroPerks loyalty program (for free) and receive a birthday coupon for your noteworthy day. At the beginning of your birthday month, Anthropologie will email you a card with a 15% off discount. Although 15% seems like a small discount, it can actually make a considerable difference as Anthropologie items are expensive. Celebrate your special day and splurge on a fancy Anthropologie item!
