The One with the Free Ice Cream

This particular tip is about to work for me today!
Kevin and I are going to cash in my birthday Blizzard coupon from the one and only Dairy Queen.
Yes, that's right.
Because my birthday's tomorrow, the DQ has sent me a coupon.
Buy one 16oz Blizzard, get one free!
Rock on!
And not only that, but if you're a Blizzard Club member, you get multiple coupons a year.
The last couple months I got the same BOGO coupon for the Blizzard of the month.
Which, for November, happens to be the Girl Scout Tagalong Peanut Butter Patty Blizzard.
If you love ice cream (who doesn't?) then you'd better sign up. Now.
Except can I just say, it's quite a struggle to find a DQ in Michigan.
Especially in the winter.
Boo, Michigan.
My hometown has more DQs than all of southern Michigan.

And here's another "must sign up for."
Coldstone Creamery Birthday Club.
They send you a coupon for a free "Like It" sized ice cream cup with one "mix-in."
It's tiny but it's free, and you can't beat the uniqueness of Coldstone's ice cream.
So sign up for the Birthday club.
You won't regret it.
It's the only time I'll ever eat Coldstone, because I simply can't pay $2.59 for a scoop of ice cream when I could buy a whole half gallon for $1.99 at my Aldi.

When it's your birthday you deserve all the free stuff you can find.
So go sign up!
And if you find another great birthday club, let me know!

ps. I have learned of other great birthday clubs.
This is me hoping that signing up today will get me my birthday goods by tomorrow.
Wishful thinking?


  1. Oh, I'm so glad I found this post on WFMW! I LOVE Dairy Queen (in moderation, of course :) and their blizzards and my husband is a huge fan of Cold Stone. We will definitely sign up for the birthday clubs. Thanks!

  2. Those are both GREAT tips! I am going to sign up for those deals online *pronto*. By the way, I love the "adorkable" title. I've been a dork my whole life, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!
