Our birthday is one of, if not the best, day of the year. Our friends and family are extra nice, we’re showered with gifts we don’t exactly need but desperately want, we’re the center of attention, and we get to feel like the Queen we always knew we were. In other words, we’re basically Stassi Schroeder.
Sure, we might not be taking trips to Cabo and watching our friends get into drunken street fights, but we do agree that our birthday is a really big deal. But what’s the biggest perk of celebrating the day we were born? Various businesses offer discounts and freebies when birthdays come around.
Take advantage of these deals, because you deserve to be spoiled. Check out the ultimate list for scoring deals on your special day below.
