April 4th is a huge day for the world. It was the day that a legend was born to a SWLA couple, they just didn't know it at the time. It just so happens to be my birthday. That being said, I like free things and don't like paying for them. I figured I would google around and see what a birthday boy could get for free.

Dairy Queen - Buy one get one free Blizzard on your birthday after signing up for the Blizzard Fan Club
