My niece sparked this idea for me a few years ago.
Every year on her birthday, she’d post pictures of herself on social media enjoying freebies on her birthday.
One minute she’s drinking a free Starbucks.
The next time I check Facebook, she’s posting a picture of herself eating a free ice cream cone.
I thought to myself, what a great idea!
I mean, you only get a birthday ONE day a year!
Why not take advantage of as many freebies as possible?
If you don’t, you have to wait 364 more days!
Birthday Freebies in Frederick
And what better time of year to post this list than on mine and Terri’s birthday!!
Yes, you read that right!
It’s our birthday!
Well, not today, but next week.
And you can be sure that we will be enjoying some of these freebies on that day.
I’ve compiled a list of places in Frederick that offer a birthday freebie.
Most require you to join their birthday or rewards club.
Others just require a valid I.D.
Some people prefer not to join the clubs because they require personal information.
But for those of us who don’t mind getting ‘club’ emails sent with coupons and specials, this is for you.
When signing up for these clubs, make sure you do this well before your actual birthday so you can be prepared, with coupon in hand, to rack up the freebies.
So here ya go!

I totally miss the days where you didn’t have to plan ahead and you could just walk into a restaurant and say it’s your birthday and get a free dessert with a happy birthday song.
Some restaurants may still do this!
Especially the non-chain, mom & pop type of restaurants.
If you know of any, please let us know in the comments so we can add them to our list.
The more, the merrier, right?
And, Happy Birthday!
