Tax day probably isn't on the top of anyone's list of favorite days. But here's a reason you can actually look forward to April 18 (the deadline for filing your tax return this year): FREEBIES.
Several companies will be offering relief to taxpayers in the form of free treats, food, workouts and massages, and drink and dining specials. Here's a rundown of who is offering what:
- Bally Total Fitness is letting anyone work out for free April 18. Members can sign up from April 15 through April 21 for a free 30-minute personal training session. And during that same period, non-members can take advantage of a tax day membership special with a two-year Premier National Access membership for $418, a savings of $61 from the standard price.
- California Tortilla is giving customers free chips and cheese (queso) with a purchase on April 18 because "you have to pay the big cheese."
- Cinnabon will offer two free Classic Cinnabon Bites on April 18 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. as part of its Tax Day Bites promotion.
- HydroMassage locations nationwide will provide free massages between April 14 and April 18 to help eliminate the stress of tax filing. Get a coupon for a free message at www.hydromassage.com/taxday.htm and call ahead to schedule a session.
To see if Starbucks is offering tax freebies, read on.
Unfortunately, several companies that offered tax-day freebies in the past won't be doing so this year. For example, you won't get a free cup of coffee at Starbucks this year. Subway, Jamba Juice, Dunkin' Donuts, Kimpton Hotels and T.G.I. Friday's won't offer any special deals on tax day, either. The McDonald's corporate office does not have a list yet of its locations that will be offering tax-day specials.
