So I am very excited to write this post because yesterday was my birthday and I was determined to try something new this year! I’ve always heard about getting freebies at certain places during your birthday but I never actually tried doing it before….till yesterday! It wasn’t a total success but I was still very satisified nevertheless with my stash. Hehe
Our first destination was Denny’s because they advertise a “free birthday grand slam” on their website. I normally don’t go to Denny’s but since it’s free, oh yeah baby! I went with FW because we coincidentally have the same birth date 🙂
We both ordered a drink just to be safe because we weren’t sure if a purchase was necessary. I ordered a Chocolate Milk ($3.29) and FW ordered the Groovy Mango.
Yayy!! Our grand slams! Everything was awesome except for the eggs. They tasted powdery and fake but oh well, they’re free so I shouldn’t complain. 😛 By the way, remember to bring your ID or you can’t get it.
After a satisfying breakfast at Denny’s, I went to Richmond Center with Rae and headed over to Blenz Coffee! Only certain Blenz Coffee locations give out free birthday drinks though so make sure you check with them beforehand and don’t flip out if they don’t give one to you. 😛
Since the Richmond Center location do honor this promotion, Rae ordered the Hot Chai Latte (~$4.00) and I got the MatchaChillo ($0.00). I think that’s what it’s called… Rae had to ask them to remake it though because her first latte was not filled to the rim (far from it).
My MatchaChillo was really tasty! I was stupid and didn’t tell them a size so I think they just gave me the small or medium. Next year, I am so getting a large!!
After Blenz, we went to Sephora where I got my free birthday gift! This isn’t food related but I thought I’d include this in case some people find this useful. 😛 To get this gift, you do have to subscribe to Sephora’s newsletter so if your birthday is soon, be sure to sign up!
Hope you enjoyed my random birthday freebie post and happy eating as always!
