Have a Birthday Coming Up? Check Out Our Huge List of Birthday Freebies

birthday_cake

Have you checked out our HUGE list of Arizona birthday freebies?  All places have at least one location in Arizona, but many are national deals.  The list is amazing with over 100 places and restaurants.  There is a tab on the top of this web page that lists all these deals, so you can reference it later if you need to.

There is everything from free mascara to free zoo admission!  I know, I know, I had you at mascara.  :)

Most deals require you to sign up for an email club and a coupon will be emailed, around the time of your birthday.  Many are good for a week or two around your birthday.  Sign up before your birthday so they start to roll in when your birthday comes and you can enjoy a couple weeks of great deals!  You might want to use an alternate email so that you don’t begin getting too many extra emails.  (You can create free ones with gmail or hotmail.)

Did you know that regular admission to the Phoenix Zoo is now $20 for adults!?!?!  You get in twice (free!) with a Pogo Pass!  Then, there’s the $29.99 unlimited rides and goofy golf package at Castles & Coasters.  Let’s not forget the $30ish admission for Sunsplash you can use later.  And . . . well, MORE!

Pogo Passes are $39.98 — with discount code or by using links provided.

Here’s what your annual pass will include:
(All venues are subject to change.  They usually give you a warning, so you can visit quickly, before it’s gone.)

** Each person needs one, unless they’re 2 or younger.  Most places won’t charge admission and it’s not worth buying them one.  If you have a three year old, check the venues you will use and see what their policy is for three year olds.

Note:  They have the gift option back.  You can buy them now and redeem the code when you or your recipient wants the 365 days of fun!

(I’m an affiliate for Pogo Pass, but the excitement would be the same, whether I was or not — really!  I bought them before I was.  We love these!!  Thanks for using our links and supporting this site!)

Free Redbox Rental Today (Wednesday, 12/17)

redbox

There are so many movies out on DVD that I want to see right now…
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Why pay for them when you can get it free????

Use code:  JOYFUL to get a free DVD rental today, Wednesday 12/17.
I just tried it and it worked online, not sure if it will work directly at a kiosk.
(Thanks, Ruthie!)

Also, if you  missed this post from yesterday:

Text TMORRIS to 727272 for a FREE one-night DVD rental from Redbox.
You will get the code right away and it’s good through 12/22/14.

You can also text DBYRNE to 727272 for a FREE one-night DVD rental from Redbox.
Also, good through 12/22.
You may need to only do one text offer per day.

Update:  Tina tried to do both in one day and got a return message on the second one, so definitely do one today and one another day.
Thanks, Tina!

Update 2:  Colleen said she did it on two different days and got a message saying she could only use one per campaign, so you may only be able to use one code or the other.
Thanks, Colleen!

I tested my code online at Redbox and it worked there.
I’m not sure about at the kiosk.
It should since it doesn’t say otherwise.

(Thanks, Hip2Save!)

Phoenix Children’s Museum ~ Free Admission First Friday of the Month

You can get FREE admission to the Phoenix Children’s Museum the first Friday of each month. That’s this Friday — December, 5th, from 5 pm -9 pm. Target sponsors the event. No coupon is needed.

We’ve never been there, but I hear it can be crowded on Fridays. Please leave a comment if you have any additional feedback or advice for anyone.

The Museum is easily accessible from I-10 via the Washington Street and 7th Street exits. We offer free on-site parking. Take the Free Dash Shuttle or take the Metro Light Rail! If riding the Rail, exit at the 3rd Street/Washington station (westbound) or 3rd Street/Jefferson station (eastbound). It is a short walk north on 7th Street to the Museum. Enter through the historic entrance on the west side of the building, adjacent to 7th St.

A comment from BMB: Super busy on first Friday. Parking is hard unless you are there right on time.  (Thanks, BMB!)
