Tax Day is one of the most stressful "holidays" of the year. To help take the sting out of paying Uncle Sam and relieve the anxiety of rushing to file on time, a number of stores and restaurants offer deals to mark the tax deadline -- Tuesday, April 17, this year. Celebrate sending in those pesky tax forms with these discounts and freebies. Most offers are valid only at participating locations so be sure to contact your local store or restaurant.
Great American Cookies has been sweetening Tax Day for a few years now. On April 17, all customers who stop by participating stores get a free Cookies & Cream cookie (so long as the shop has them on hand) -- no purchase necessary. The Cookies & Cream cookie is a limited edition treat so be sure to get one while they're hot!
Gourmesso, a coffee capsule brand marketed as a cheaper Nespresso, is encouraging taxpayers to stock up on coffee and power through to the tax-filing deadline. The Tax Day Bundle goes for just over $57 (about 14 percent off) and features 140 capsules of some of the brand's strongest flavors, plus free shipping. The promotion is valid through April 18.
Diners can celebrate the end of the tax season by munching on free chips and queso (with any purchase) at California Tortilla on April 17. Be sure to use the password "Chipping in" while ordering. The chain has locations in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
While perhaps not specifically Tax Day related, Applebee's has brought back its "DOLLARITA" for the entire month of April. Served on the rocks, made with tequila and margarita mix, and only $1, this refreshing drink is the perfect way to toast your hard work. Valid at participating locations.
