Reminder: Tax Day Freebies 2013!

Posted April 15, 2013


There are a number of restaurants that are offering freebies or free items with purchase today to help ease the pain of tax day! Have you submitted your tax return yet or are you still feeling the pain?

As always, only some stores in the chains will be participating so you may want to call ahead to verify if your local store is offering these deals.

Arby’s: Get a free value sized curly fries or potato cakes on April 15 with coupon from their Facebook page. You can also enter to win one of ten $500 tax relief prizes!

Bruegger’s Bagels: Get a Big Bagel Bundle for $10.40 From April 12 – April 15 with the coupon on their Facebook page. The bundle includes 13 bagels and 2 tubs of cream cheese.

Great American Cookies: Get a free Birthday Cake Cookie all day on April 15th at participating locations (this freebie is for our Asheville, Concord and Wilmington readers since the website indicates there are no Raleigh area stores participating). You can see more information on their website.

McDonald’s stores in the Triangle are still giving away a free small cup of Premium Roast Coffee every day through April 15th. No coupon or purchase required for this freebie. Keep in mind that it is good at participating locations and at least one blog reader posted earlier in the week that her location was not participating (can’t remember which one – sorry).

    I had my Schlotzsky's sandwich for lunch. It was really good, and only $3.21 with the purchase of chips and drink. They are in Apex by Perkins on Hwy 64. Thank you Faye for helping us survive tax day!
