Tax Day Freebies

They say there are two things we can be sure of in life: death and taxes.  While the first one is hardly a subject for a penny-pinching-upcycling-hardly-taking-itself-seriously kind of blog, we can talk about the latter…  well, just for a minute.  Because by “taxes” I mean, tax day freebies!

OK, so since those ugly ol’ obligatory tax things are due today, a few national retailers and restaurants have mercifully offered some discounts and freebies, but only today — so before this day is over, go check ’em out!  For some, you’ll need to print off a coupon, others you just show up with your newly “I paid my taxes” self.

Here they are:

Arby’s — Print off a coupon from their Facebook site and get free curly fries on April 17.

Boston Market — With the coupon, buy one indivudal meal and a fountain drink and get another individual meal free.  Only valid April 17.

Chili’s — Free appetizer or dessert with entree purchase.  Valid April 16-18.

Cinnabon — Select stores will be giving away two free “bites” (their mini cinnamon rolls).  Only valid April 17, while supplies last.

Marble Slab Creamery and Maggie Moo’s — Select stores are offering free sample scoops of their new fro yo flavors.

P.F. Chang’s — All dine-in and take-out orders — excluding beverages and happy hour specials — are 15% off.

Panda Express — Like them on Facebook and you’ll get a free serving of their new Shanghai Angus Steak.  Only valid April 17.

Sonic — Half price drinks all day (that includes slushes).

Happy Tax Day!
