UH's lifestyle and entertainment magazine - by students, for students

Let’s say your birthday is coming up and you’re not sure what to do. One option is to take an unconventional route and drive around to get freebies to celebrate your special day. After all, we all love stuff we don’t have to pay for.

I missed out on these for my birthday, so I am letting you know now just to start planning where you’ll go when your day arrives. Lots of stores and food places have deals to give to you on your birthday. Let’s get into it!

Nothing Bundt Cakes

These are some of the best cakes I have ever tasted, the cakes are moist and tender, with a crumb so delicate it practically melts in your mouth!

You can get a bundtlet, which is a mini cake, on your birthday. The catch is you will have to sign up for eClub membership on their website. The membership is free, and you receive a free bundtlet coupon a week prior to your birthday. I recommend strawberries and cream or white chocolate raspberry for the flavor.

Krispy Kreme

You can get a free dozen donuts anytime from the first day of your birthday month to the last day of the month! Their famous original glazed donuts are delicately sweet and fluffy. In addition, you get a free donut for signing up for Krispy Kreme rewards. Just make sure you sign up before you go to the store.


This breakfast diner is a fave because of the BYO options at their locations. I personally have never tried it, but if I were you I would. Their food looks so good on their website in pictures. When you sign up for their rewards program, you not only get a free slam on your birthday; but you also get 20 percent off on your next visit and a chance to participate in yummy challenges to win rewards every month.


This is where fun meets flavor and entertainment. It has a cheerful atmosphere and great wings; their freebie is 10 wings plus a happy birthday song if you dine in, so be sure to check it out.

Jamba Juice

Their smoothies are tasty as well as refreshing and offer a healthier option on this list. You can get a smoothie when you sign up for their rewards program. Mango-a-go-go and strawberries wild are my top favorites, so be sure to pick one of the two.

Olive Garden

This Italian restaurant is a hot spot for many here in Texas. It offers a freebie dessert on your birthday when you join the e-club. Some of their desserts include decadent tiramisu, zeppoli, mousse cake and lemon cream cake.


Enough about food, for now, let’s talk about beauty! Sephora has a range of birthday options to choose from where you can put 250 points towards your account on the app or just go with the glow recipe skin care on the app. If you order from the app, bear in mind you will have to order something with your present.

If you have lots of gas in your car, or you have a free day, you can check more places to go from TikTok or delish websites. I hope you have a great birthday and enjoy your freebies!
