Just checking my news on Twitter during my lunch hour and I saw that #payyourageday was trending. What does this mean? Can I go somewhere and, say, buy a fancy dinner for 61 cents? Can I get a luxury car wash for the same price? Why, I’d be happy to indulge.
Alas, it’s for a promotion that Build-A-Bear is running on July 12. For the first time ever, they are letting their “customers pay their age for a furry friend.” That’s a helluva deal if you’re in the market for a stuffed bear. Note to parents and guardians: You need to enroll in the @buildabear Bonus Club rewards program to be eligible for this offer.
Build-A-Bear Workshop is holding their first-ever ‘Pay Your Age’ day this Thursday, saying “for one day only, you can pay your age for ANY, we repeat, ANY furry friend at the Workshop!
Someone thinking like me wrote this on Twitter: “Pay your age day? Can we do that for groceries, electric, rent, and/or student loans? I’ll pay $25 for one of those.” What if stores and vendors offered specials like that to seniors and/or older individuals? I’d pay $61 for car insurance, but can I pay 61 cents for a steak dinner?
This reminds me of those freebies you can get on your birthday and I promise I’m going to sign up for different mailing lists to ensure free birthday goodies. If you have favorite chain restaurant, be sure to sign up for their rewards or frequent buyer program and you’ll receive emails offering you free items on your birthday. The best deal by far is Benihana. Sign up online and get a $30 gift certificate during the month of your birthday. Well worth it! Also, check out Pizza Hut, Jamba Juice, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Krispy Kreme, P.F. Chang, Olive Garden, Panera, and IHOP.
Here are some other locations where you can just show up on your birthday and demand free stuff!
- Seasons 52: Tell the server it’s your birthday and you get a free dessert
- Dennys: Show your ID and get a free grand slam
- Wingstop: Get free fries
You should be stuffed by the end of your birthday month!
