I think birthdays can be so much fun and should be celebrated! I like being a year older and hopefully a year wiser (I'm still working on that)!

It's my birthday today and it's always fun seeing all the free treats and discounts that are coming my way because it's my birthday month. So far I got a free pastry at Panera, a birthday coupon to shop at Express if I want a new birthday outfit, and a free large popcorn and large soda for being a AMC Stubs Premiere member to use at an AMC movie theater! After seeing all of those awesome free gifts and treats come my way, it go me wondering what other free things I could get for free on my birthday.

So I did some research and found a huge list on Finance Buzz of places that will treat you to a discount or give you something for free if it's your birthday. Here are some of the ones that caught my eye:

- Baskin Robbins - free ice cream scoop
- Ben & Jerry's – free scoop of ice cream
- Best Buy – $5 birthday reward
- Bonefish Grill – free dessert
