When I opened up my email, I had about 15 messages from different eating establishments wishing me a “Happy Birthday!” Along with their wishes were… FREE FOOD coupons!
My birthday isn’t until next week, but that doesn’t mean I can’t start celebrating now. According to my calculations, I can eat free every night for the next few weeks!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s plain and simple. Go to your favorite restaurant’s website (or even one you really not like all that much), and sign up to be on their mailing list. Yes, you will absolutely get a bunch of spam, but to me, deleting email after email is worth it about once a year. Now, not all places will give you a free meal, some will do a free desert, while others a free appetizer. The Melting Pot will give you a free box of chocolate dipped strawberries. No complaints here.
So, if you have a birthday of your very own coming soon, sign up for newsletters. The best part is when you first sign up, within a day or two, some places will give you free stuff just for saying “Thanks!”
Gotta love free stuff:
