  1. On your computer, open Gmail.
  2. At the top right, click Settings Settings and then See all settings.
  3. Click the Inbox tab.
  4. In the “Inbox type” section, select Default. Note: To hide all tabs, select another inbox type.

ON YOUR BIRTHDAY MONTH/DAY

Once your birthday month rolls around, search your promotional emails for “birthday” to bring up those freebies.

Option 2: Use Unroll.me

Unroll.me for Subscription emails plus Easily unsubscribe permanently - Best Birthday Freebies

Unroll.me puts all your subscription emails in one place and allows you to unsubscribe easily from Spam email you don’t want to receive anymore.

I use Unroll.me to put all my promotional emails into one daily email. Then when my birthday comes around and I want to cash in on my free rewards, I search for “birthday” and I can find all my rewards in one place.

WARNING: Unroll.me will put all the emails from chosen senders into your once-a-day “Today’s Rollup.” If you’re worried about missing order update emails from a certain sender, make sure they send those emails from a separate sender, otherwise, I would not recommend Unrolling that sender.

ON YOUR BIRTHDAY MONTH/DAY

Once your birthday month rolls around, search your promotional emails for “birthday” to bring up those freebies.
