April 15, also known as Tax Day, is upon us again. While some people like to file their taxes with the IRS early on--especially if they're getting a refund--others wait until the last minute. Whether you were the early bird as far as tax filing goes or are one of the procrastinators waiting until the last minute to do your taxes, April 15 just got a little brighter. Quite a few chains are offering some tasty discounts and freebies on Tax Day, so check out the list below to see some of the deals you can score.


Arby's is offering a free snack-sized order of their curly fries again this year. Unlike some restaurants where all you have to do is show up to get the deal, you will need to print out the coupon from the Arby's website in advance. There are no strings attached to this coupon, so you aren't obligated to purchase anything else. That said, it will be awfully hard to pass up downing the free fries with a small Jamocha milkshake from the Arby's value menu--especially if you made April 15 your tax filing day.

Great American Cookies

Got a sweet tooth? Then head to a Great American Cookies store near you. This chain is giving away free chocolate chip cookies on Tax Day. The offer is good for one cookie per customer.

Hard Rock Cafe

This freebie won't be up everyone's alley, but if you aren't bashful in front of crowds, you can earn a free meal on Tax Day at Hard Rock Cafe if you're willing to sing for your supper. Entree selections will come from Hard Rock Cafe's revamped menu. Call your local Hard Rock Cafe to find out what time the deal is being offered.


Schlotzsky's is offering free sandwiches on Tax Day. As you can see from the Schlotzsky's post below, there is a catch--you have to purchase a 32 ounce drink and a bag of chips to score a free "The Original" small sandwich. At least you don't have to sing for this deal, right?

Sonic Drive-In

As you can see from the tweet below, Sonic Drive-In is offering half-price drinks and slushes on Tax Day. While Sonic offers a similar deal on their happy hour menu from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., this deal lasts all day.
