Welcome back to my series of posts about freebies and discounts you can get in Victoria on your birthday.*
Today’s advice, if you work the system, will net you THREE free servings of ice cream on your next birthday. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner! All you have to do is join the online Dairy Queen Blizzard Fan Club, the Baskin Robbins Birthday Club, and My Cold Stone Club.
You won’t have to wait until your birthday to sample the product, either. In addition to the free ice-cream coupon you’ll receive just before your birthday, each of the following businesses promise to send you a coupon to use now, just for signing up.
- DQ Blizzard Fan Club (http://www.blizzardfanclub.com/join/), five Victoria locations; use the Store Locator tool to find the Dairy Queen nearest you. You’ll receive a coupon for a free Dairy Queen Blizzard treat on your birthday, and for joining the club, a buy-one get-one-free coupon to use immediately.
- Baskin Robbins Birthday Club (https://www.baskinrobbins.com/bdayclub/RegisterInfo1.aspx), 3147 Douglas St, Victoria, BC. Before your special day, you’ll receive an e-mail coupon for a free 2.5-ounce birthday scoop, and another for a discount on a birthday cake. For joining the club, you’ll get an instant coupon now for a free ice cream.
- Cold Stone Creamery (http://www.coldstonecreamery.com/), 3501 Ravine Way, Victoria, BC. The current website says the company will be launching its new My Cold Stone Club shortly. When the system is live, Cold Stone promises “you’ll receive a special treat for signing up and another one on your birthday.”
Sign up for all three clubs, and when you birthday rolls around, you won’t have to decide among chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. You can have it all, baby.
