We hope we don't have to remind you that your taxes are due today. But if this is brand new information, please get off the Internet and go file your taxes.
For everyone else, did you know that today (April 15) is a day that's not just reserved for stressing about getting your taxes done and turned in? Tax day is also full of amazing deals that companies hand out to help ease the stress of the IRS breathing down your neck. And it's the best kind of deals that exist: free food.
But that's not all! You can also get discounts on massages, free paper shredding (to hide the evidence!) and did we mention free food! Here's a quick guide to all the deals you can't miss today, plus a list of freebies that maybe you can just pass up:
Arby's: Cash in on their annual Tax Day tradition and get your free curly fries. Just bring in this coupon.
Great American Cookies: Just go to your local Great America Cookies spot and get your free cookie! We repeat: free cookies! Limit one per customer, so that's a bummer. We suggest bringing some disguises so you can just go back a couple of times.
HydroMassage: We've all seen them in our malls, and now you can get a free mini-massage between now and April 18. We suggest signing up ahead of time.
Office Depot: You can shred up to five pounds of paper for free between now and April 29. You know, for those "special documents" you might not want people to find. Just get the coupon before going in.
AMC Theaters: Not quite as good as a free movie, but if you do go into an AMC today, you get free popcorn with this coupon.
Schlotzsky's: If you buy a 32 oz. drink and a bag of chips, you get an original sandwich for free!
Cinnabon: They are so terrible for you, and that's what makes them extra special and delicious. At participating locations, you can get two free Cinnabon Bites today.
Boston Market: Tell your boo you already have dinner planned for tonight, because Boston Market offers a "Tax Day Deal Chicken Meal" today. You can receive two half chicken individual meals for just $10.40.
ESquared Hospitality: Mostly known for their steakhouses (BLT Steak), the company is offering 50 percent off alcoholic beverages today. You can check out a list of their restaurants and locations at their website.
Orange Leaf: Frozen yogurt for all! Well, for a discounted price: $4.15 for a cup of froyo.
California Tortilla: For today only, just say "Taxes, Schmaxes" to your cashier and you'll get free chips and queso with your purchase.
Sonic Drive-In: Today it's happy hour all day, which means half-priced drinks and slushies.
Papa John's: They are giving a slight discount on large five-topping pizzas if you order online and plug in the promo code, but if you're not a fan of his pizza (or his business practices), you can skip.
Hard Rock Café: If you sing a song between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. at any of their locations, you get a free entrée today. Pro: free food. Con: The free food is from Hard Rock Café. And you have to sing.
MVPee.com: If you want apple scented urinal screens, this site is giving out free ones to the first 1,000 people who request them. Related question: Why are you requesting apple scented urinal screens?
DoubleTree: This is in the hard pass section because this offer is only good for residents in Philadelphia and Los Angeles (two of America's highest-taxed cities). But if you're willing to drive far for free cookies, then have at it! Hotel employees will be handing out free chocolate chip cookies at local post offices and tax offices today in those cities.
Southern California's South Coast Air Quality Management District: Kind of obscure, but it's a cool deal if you're into energy-saving lawnmowers. On the day after tax day (April 16), you can register for an annual exchange program and become eligible to get 75 percent off the cost of a new electric lawnmower if you trade in your gas-powered one.
Now you can adequately celebrate tax day with free food. God bless America.
