Welcome, KVOA viewers to Savvy Savings Tucson!
This summer I celebrated yet another birthday! I remember when I was in college we'd go out to restaurants that would give a free dessert to the person having the birthday. Life is more high tech now. And there are so many birthday gifts being given for birthdays!
The thing I love the most is that most companies give you a 2 week window to pick up your gift! Earlier this week I picked up my 24 oz birthday smoothie from Keva Juice using the coupon they emailed me.
Yesterday my daughter and I went to Red Robin at the Tucson Mall for lunch. They email you a coupon for a free gourmet burger of your choice. Plus it came with fries. Mine was a $8.99 gift. Just remember to tip your waiter for what the full amount of the check would have been.
Sephora, also located in the Tucson Mall, also has a rewards program and they email you a coupon for a free birthday gift. Right now they are gifting 3 lip glosses! You can sign up here!
After picking up my lip gloss and running some other errands, Liz and split my birthday gift from Cold Stone Creamery! We got their cheesecake ice cream with strawberries mixed in. Yummy!
I have about 7 more freebie coupons available to use before 8/3 from Texas Roadhouse appetizer to Boston's dessert. We'll have to decide where we really want to go!
Here's the huge list of possibilities for Tucson. Did I miss any? Email me if you know of others!!!
