Birthday Freebies & Discounts around Sioux City

It's my birthday! To celebrate, I'm sharing with you this list of birthday freebies and deals you can score from restaurants and stores in the Sioux City area.

As far as I can tell these are all in effect as of September 2018, but always read the rules and terms from whoever is offering them, as they could change. Some stores keep their promotions the same for years and years (like Starbucks) while others change them frequently (like Sephora--usually a makeup sample of some sort). For all of them, you have to be signed up for their rewards program and/or e-mail list, which will mean you get marketing and other e-mails from them throughout the year as well, so keep that in mind when deciding which ones are worth signing up for. I recommend signing up at least 2 months in advance, as some automatically send the birthday reward e-mail a few days in advance, or at the beginning of your birthday month, and if you aren't on the list before the auto-send date, you usually won't get a birthday reward that year. Many of them also offer a sign-up treat, so it's fun to get that on a different day too!

Deals with a * are based on information from sources I trust, but aren't confirmed by the restaurant or store website to still be valid. Many of them are vague about what specific offers are available to rewards members, usually because they want the freedom to change their birthday promotion without updating their websites every time, but do have birthday deals! If you know of a birthday freebie or deal I missed or which has changed, please leave a comment or e-mail me

Enjoy your free treats!!
