Today, April 17th, is Tax Day. The due date to file, and pay if you owe, your federal and state taxes.
If you got a refund, you probably filed earlier - why wouldn't you get your own money back sooner rather than later, right? If you owe, you probably waited until right around today (hey, I did.)
In salute of Tax Day, though, quite a few restaurant chains are offering some deals to help you deal... Office Depot & OfficeMax are getting in on the action, too. Here are the details!
Applebee's: Not necessarily exclusive to Tax Day but welcome anyway, Applebee's has the "dollarita" -- a margarita that costs one dollar -- all month.
Bruegger's Bagels: Bruegger's Bagels brings back its annual Tax Day deal to lighten taxpayers’ load and help carb us all up. Participating bakeries will offer Bruegger’s famous Big Bagel Bundle for just $10.40 with a downloadable coupon from the company's website – a significant $3.50 "deduction" from the standard price.
Chuck E Cheese: Families can enjoy a guaranteed return at Chuck E. Cheese, where today (4/17) through Thursday (419) they can buy any large pizza and get one large cheese pizza free.
Cici's Pizza: Adult buffets for $4.17 (get it? It's April 17th!) with a coupon posted on its Facebook page.
Firehouse Subs: Stop by to receive a free medium sub when they purchase a full price medium or large sub, chips and a drink, today (4/17) through Thursday (4/19). Click here for a link to the offer.
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria: For one day only, on April 17, take a Tax Day Break and get your hands on a Traditional Cheese pizza for only $10.40, which as their release states is a "tasty combination of their secret recipe tomato sauce and hand-sliced mozzarella topped with Grimaldi’s signature cheese and spice blend, all baked to perfection in Grimaldi’s signature coal brick-oven." While supplies last at locations nationwide.
Hardee's: To ease the pain of Tax Day in the U.S., Hardee’s is offering customers a free Sausage Biscuit on April 17, 7-10 a.m., local time, courtesy of its new “Tastes Like America” campaign. But you gotta say the password: "Made from scratch," to redeem.
Noodles & Co.: $4 Off orders of $10 or more through Wednesday. The deal is for online orders only, and customers should use the tax code TAXDAY18/
Potbelly Sandwich Shop: Customers who sign up for Potbelly Perks by downloading the Potbelly app (iPhone/Android) or online will receive a free sandwich (the free sandwich offer ends when 75,000 sandwiches have been given away). Those already enrolled in Potbelly Perks can enjoy a BOGO Sandwich that will automatically load into the app for redemption on Tax Day (April 17).
Schlotzsky’s: Schlotzsky’s is offering a free small original sandwich with the purchase of chips and a medium drink. This offer is only available on Tuesday, April 17. A Medium Original is one of my favorite sandwiches of all time!
And for the non-food, but quite handy offer: Office Depot & OfficeMax are offering free shredding of up to five pounds of paper to help you dispose of your private information. OfficeDepot.com/shredding leads you to the coupon.
