This Michigan Birthday Freebies list is updated every year in April as I verify what offers have actually arrived as they are supposed to.
I highly recommend setting up a separate email for these offers if you don’t want to see monthly offers in your regular email box through the year. Also, many of these companies offer you a goodie or coupon when you initially sign up, so get on their list today!
