Birthday Beauty Deals

Happy Birthday!  

The following retailers have Birthday offers. Most of the promotion codes offer gifts with purchase, but the coupons or links for gifts you pick up in store are usually freebies (no purchase required). Some of the offers use generic promo codes but others are unique and not activated until around your birthday. It is best to create an account and enter your birthdate before your actual birthday to take advantage of the most deals. Remember to check the offer page on covered retailers before shopping, because the general offers can at times be better than the birthday offer. Many of these offers do not appear until your actual birthday, so save some shopping dollars for the day of rather than buying everything in advance. Most of these offers are from 2017. Some of these offers were from 2015 or 2016, because I unsubscribed and was unable to effectively resubscribe before the 2017 offers came through. This means they either do not have a 2017 offer or I did not receive it. Offers can change from year to year or even throughout the current year, but many remain the same or close to the previous offer. On that note, resubscribing to some retailers is nearly impossible. If you really want the birthday offer, put up with the emails throughout the year.
