Happy Tax Day

LibertyIf you’re like me, you’re slow about getting around to preparing your income taxes and you breathe a sigh of relief when they’re done.

Today, April 18, is Tax Day, delayed from April 15 due to Emancipation Day, a holiday that the District of Columbia celebrates the anniversary of the abolition of slavery.

To celebrate Tax Day, offers this list of free items and deals:

Great American Cookies

Great American Cookies is offering a Birthday Cake cookie for free on April 18.

Kona Ice

The outlet is giving away its tropical shaved ice cones for free.


If you buy any 32-oz. drink and a bag of chips, you'll get the bakery's Original Sandwich for free.

California Tortilla

California Tortilla is offering a free queso and chips with any order on April 18 when you mention the password "TAX CRUNCH!" to your server.

Planet Fitness

From April 15 to 22, you can get a free HydroMassage at any Planet Fitness location. A coupon is available on Planet Fitness' website.

McDonald's: This varies a lot by location, but locations throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Florida, and Ohio are offering some kind of deal, from a $1 Big Mac to a quarter pounder for 18 cents. Check with your nearest locations to see if they are offering a deal.
