To get these specials, I simply joined the companies’ email lists. In doing so, I gave them permission to email me with promotions, news and whatever else, but best of all, coupons! Including the special birthday promotions.Companies want to give you the warm and fuzzies, so when they take a moment to appreciate you, they are building loyalty and in turn hoping you’ll spend more with them.
And guess what? It works! If I’m going into Boston Pizza for a free dessert, guess who else is coming? That’s right, the rest of my family! I get something for free and they make money from the extras we buy and if they impress, they know we’re likely to come back. It’s a win-win!
If there is an offer you’d like to receive for your birthday, simply click the company name and the sign up page will open in a new window. Easy peasy!
