Our Top 3 Tips to Redeem as Many Birthday Freebies in Chicago as Possible.

There are a ton of free birthday gifts and offers in and around Chicago that most don't even know exist! Here are our pro tips for taking advantage of all the great freebies out there so you can enjoy your best birthday ever.


First, for every establishment that has free stuff to offer on your birthday, most will require that you sign up or register to their eclub, newsletter, loyalty program, email list, or perhaps download their mobile app. You'll want to make sure you do this for as many places as possible in advance of your birthday. They will ask for your birthdate and email address when doing so. This is required so that they can extend whatever gift or giveaway they might have when your birthday approaches. This will ensure that you get the coupons on your birthday and deals in the mail leading up to your birthday month. The sooner you register for these programs and loyalty clubs the better. Doing so will give yourself time to organize what it is you want to do on your special day and eliminate the pain points of redemption come your actual birthday.


Secondly, here's a cool birthday hack that you may not realize. If you find the number of free birthday offers overwhelming, don't worry! You don't have to get to all of them on the day of your birthday. Many places allow you to use their coupon or discount codes during your birthday month so the time you wish to redeem each birthday gift is your choice. In fact, if you play your cards right, you can enjoy a few funfilled days out on the town at your birthday's expense. We've got all that info in the Yayday app for you. Thank us later.


Finally, don't forget to tell your friends and family about all the great birthday freebies out there by sharing the Yayday app. They'll be happy to join in on the fun and help you celebrate your special day. No one likes to celebrate alone!
