My birthday is this month, and recently, I received an early gift in the mailbox–a discount card on a purchase at one of my favorite stores. I’ve signed on with the store’s loyal shopper program, and the birthday month discount is one of the perks.
Many retailers have special loyalty clubs that offer birthday discounts and freebies. This is a way that retailers can reward you for shopping with them, and perhaps entice you to spend even more while you’re there.
Below are some stores and restaurants with locations in the Roanoke Valley that offer birthday rewards. In most cases, you must sign up for these rewards through a loyal shopper or birthday club program. Let me know of others that I may have missed.
Cold Stone Creamery: Receive a free coupon for ice cream each year on your birthday.
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers: Get a free birthday hamburger.
Baskin-Robbins: Get a free 2.5 ounce scoop of ice cream and a discount on a birthday cake.
The Children’s Place: Receive a gift coupon on your birthday and on your child’s birthday.
Toys “R” Us (Geoffrey’s Birthday Club): Children 10 years old and younger receive a card, gift and other birthday treats.
Firehouse Subs: Pick up a free medium sub when you go to Firehouse Subs on your birthday (must present your I.D.).
