Canadians can access lots of free stuff on their birthdays! Is your birthday coming up and you are wondering what you can get for FREE on your special day? We have got you covered!
Whether you live in Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Halifax, Montreal, Fredericton, St. John’s, Charlottetown, Regina, or anywhere in-between, there’s always a place you can stop by to claim freebies on your birthday.
My son recently received a Pizza Pizza birthday gift in the mail for his 5th birthday, and boy, was he super-pumped!! A slice of pepperoni pizza and milk…yum-yum!
Some of the offers below will send you your free gift a few weeks or days before your birthday, and for others, you simply need to show up in-store to claim your freebie. If you are like most people, you celebrate your birthday just once a year, so why not load up on some free goodies while you are at it, eh?
