Make the most of your birthday with these freebies in Notts

A list of birthday freebies in Notts that everyone needs to know about, but have somehow slipped under the radar!

We all know that saving money and bargain hunting is part of being a student, so who doesn’t want to be treated with free food and drinks on their birthday?

Lots of companies, mostly restaurant based, offer free goodies as a promotion ploy, but we reckon you can work your way round town and go home being full up and stocked with treats.

Although a lot of these offers are in condition with other purchases like a 'when you buy…' or 'if you order this…' catch, there are a few that are simply free giveaways.
