Birthday freebies you can get from businesses

Celebrate your birthday by saving money!

You typically get gifts from your friends and family on your birthday. That’s to be expected. But you know what isn’t as common? Rounding up all those birthday freebies people get from restaurants and other businesses for their big day! So with three hours and a budget of $0, the #QueenCityWknd team decided to see how many they could round up! Within that time frame, they drove all across Charlotte and hit a total of eight restaurants. And the grand total of how much they saved? About $56. Not bad, if we say so.
