As caregivers, we can sometimes forget to practice self-care especially when our caregiving duties get demanding or when our loved ones are going through tough times themselves. However, it’s still important to look after yourself and prioritise your own needs, and what better way to do so than on your birthday? They’re not only significant milestones but also opportunities to celebrate together with our loved ones. In true Singaporean fashion, we’ve gathered together some of the best local birthday month promotions in Singapore in this guide so you can celebrate f with the birthday month freebies you deserve!
Free food and snacks
Whether you need a thirst quencher or an easy munch, there’s probably a free birthday drink or snack out there for you.
Here are some of the best:
1. Boost’s Birthday Boost
Quench your thirst with a complimentary Boost drink by signing up for their loyalty program and redeeming it during your birthday month.
All you have to do is sign up for their VIBE card and present it together with either your NRIC or passport to any Boost store to redeem your free drink. Do note that this Birthday Boost is available only on the day of your birthday and two days before or after your birthday. The caveat, however, is that you will have to first buy a drink before being eligible to claim your Birthday Boost.
2. Mr Coconut’s Free Birthday Item
Enjoy a refreshing birthday coconut beverage or dessert on the house by joining Mr Coconut’s membership program and presenting your identification card during your birthday month. You can select any item from their menu and there’s no other condition beyond signing up!
