WFMW: Free is a Good Color

When I was planning my wedding, I spoke to the florist about getting some rose petals for the flower girls to drop. She told me I'd have to buy them if I wanted a specific color (as she'd have to order the flowers especially for me), or I could have them for free if I was willing to just take whatever color petals were culled that week. When I told my sister about the conversation, she told me, "Free's a good color." Since then, the phrase has become something of a tagline for Adam and me for anything that's unexpectedly free.

The following restaurants and retail outlets offer freebies if you sign up. Many are birthday specials, some are just for being a part of the e-mail club.
These are just some of the places I have personal experience with freebies. It definitely pays to check out your favorite places online or in person to see what deals they might offer. In addition to the freebies above, most of these places will send you coupons throughout the year. If you'll be shopping or eating there anyway, you may as well save some money!

  4. I'm lovin this list! I miss Houlihans so much, we don't have one out here in AZ anymore. We just started eating at Qdoba, so I can't wait to get the free birthday taco or whatever it is. We go to Sweet Tomatoes, but I had no idea that most of your list does anything for birthdays. Thanks! Love your tagline too, free IS a good color. It always looks good on me!

  5. YUM! I used to die of embarrassment when my dad would tell our food server that it was my birthday - anyone remember the giant sombrero you had to wear at Chevy's (or was it Acapulco's) while they sang to you? Now I shamelessly let the server know about all special occasions in hopes that some sort of freebie (with 6 spoons) will come our way!
