Birthday Freebies & Discounts To Help You Feel The Love

Birthday Freebies & Discounts| To Help You Feel The Love

It’s my birthday today, I’m not making a fuss while around me everyone is fussing and wondering why I’m doing nothing, I now feel like an alien!
After today I will be on the count down to the BIG 30! 
I received a few emails regarding my birthday, and so I thought I would talk about the freebies and discounts you can get for your birthday from a few companies.

These are some of the ones I have received, but I know there a loads out there!
*FYI, I don’t benefit from talking about these freebies & discounts, or if you click on the links I have provided!

Birthday Freebies & Discounts | To Help You Feel The Love | Strandbags

So I received this email because I am a Strandbags Loyalty member. I am not entirely sure why I am, purely because the last time I probably bought a bag from there was in 2008!

We noticed you have a birthday this month and wanted to wish you a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY with this little gift.

I have until the end of the month to redeem this voucher.

Birthday Freebies & Discounts | To Help You Feel The Love | Queensland

This email is from Tourism and Events Queensland.

It might seem strange that a Victorian is getting a Queensland newsletter, but the story goes… I once entered a competition and am now subscribed….but who doesn’t love Queensland!

Treat yourself with these special offers from our friends at AccorHotels Queensland and make this the best birthday yet!

    • Book your accommodation 30 days ahead get rewarded with up to 30% off your stay!

There doesn’t seem to be an expiry, but one would assume that the links for these would stop working after a while.

Will I take up this offer?

No, no plans to travel to Queensland in the near future.


Hard To Find

Birthday Freebies & Discounts | To Help You Feel The Love | Hard To Find





Hard To Find offers unique products from independent craftspeople and manufacturers, from Australia and around the world.

It is a sort of marketplace where you can grab items from different companies and pay for it in the one checkout, and then the seller (not hard to find) will send it to you.

All I did was sign up to their newsletter, I believe when you do sign up, you receive $15 off your first purchase.

Know what day it is? We do!

  • 10% off anything you like today – your most special of days.

Enter a code included in the email.

Will I take up this offer?

No. I just don’t need anything.


The Iconic

Birthday Freebies & Discounts | To Help You Feel The Love | The Iconic







If you haven’t heard of The Iconic, it is a fashion store. I have found it to vary in price from $15 – $500, but I am sure there are items more than $500 – I just don’t want to look!

I have signed up to their newsletter/offers, and shop with them occasionally.

Here’s a little gift from us so you can celebrate your big day in style.

This statement is a little redundant, because it was sent on my birthday, it is a Sunday, and I don’t live in Sydney (3 hour delivery I believe)!

Anyway.. They are offering me;

  • 20% off your next purchase

A code is included in the email , it is not to be used in conjunction with any other offer (so no sale items) and is valid for 21 days.

The Iconic also proceeded to send me another email with dresses in it, while it is probably their normal newsletter, it seems a little coincidental!

Will I take up this offer?

Unsure. I have 21 days so I will have a browse and see what I can find. I find this offer more appealing than the one offered by Qantas because I hate having a minimum spend put on me!



Birthday Freebies & Discounts | To Help You Feel The Love | Kikki K






Kikki.K is an absolutely amazing stationery store, with things ranging from planners to pencils, and loads of cute things in between.

They have stores both Online and Bricks and Mortar.

I signed up as a member a few years ago, and have already taken advantage of their birthday gifts.
I found this little thing about member benefits and that I thought was too cool not to share.

Happy Birthday It’s Time To Celebrate

  • Treat yourself with a $10 voucher

A code is included in the email and can be redeemed in store or online, within a month of receiving.

Will I take up this offer?

Unsure, I have a month to browse, so will have a look, but doubt I will.
I have found with these vouchers, they tend to just alleviate the cost of shipping, which is still really good.


Hip Hip Horray!

These are just a couple of the Australian ones sent to me over about a week leading up to my birthday and on my birthday, as I said there are likely to be loads more out there.
If you know of some not mentioned here, comment below, if we share the love we will all have the best birthdays ever!!
