It's Leo season, which means I my birthday coming up. And that means I take the saying "treat yo self" a bit overboard.

Every July (my birthday month), I have been stopping at all of my favorite coffee places, fast food restaurants, and retail stores to use my birthday reward coupons to get free stuff.

Yes, it's true: you have to sign up for annoying emails in order to receive these birthday coupons, but what did you expect, nothing is totally free these days! It's totally worth it to have 300 more unread emails in your inbox if it means you get a treat from your favorite spots. Here are my favorite deals and a link to sign up to receive them for your B-day.
