Where to score free stuff on your birthday

Because everyone deserves something special on their day!

Everyone deserves a special treat on their birthday. The question is: how do you want to treat yourself on your birthday? Do you want a meal of comfort food from your favourite restaurant chain? How about getting some beauty products at a discount? Or would you like to try something quite new, like visiting a zoo? Fortunately for those of you who love birthday freebies, Australia has a ton of establishments that offer all sorts of free birthday stuff.

It’s quite commonplace nowadays for shops in big cities (like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, or Adelaide) to offer birthday perks; they’ve found it an excellent way to maintain customer loyalty.

Here, we list down a whole bunch of birthday freebies you can take advantage of on your special day…if you’re signed up for the business loyalty programs of course!
