Nothing says "happy birthday to me" like store rewards. They are your gift for putting up with their countless emails throughout the year about their sales and reward programs. And especially if I ever reach a point in my life when birthdays become reminders of years gone by instead of years to look forward to, at least I will have discounts and free treats to lighten the load.
Excuse me while I base my food decisions on what I can eat for free. Is a stack of pancakes from IHOP and a Grand Slam from Denny's too much for one day? Well, challenge accepted. Add on a latte and a sub for Firehouse to round out the day and I think I'm set. And to walk off all of those calories, I think I'll hit the mall to make use of all my discounts. You know where to find me today.
