Don’t write Tax Day off completely – it’s a big day for deals and freebies.
Regardless of whether you owe money or are getting a refund, some businesses are marking the tax return deadline with specials.
This year’s tax relief includes free treats, discounted meals and free paper shredding along with a way to eliminate the stress of filing at the last minute – free massages.
HydroMassage and Planet Fitness are partnering for the 11th annual Free Massage During Tax Week through April 20 with free massages for members and non-members at more than 1,700 Planet Fitness locations.
The bulk of the deductions are only offered on the official day, April 15, but a few deals start early and some extend past Monday. Applebee’s has $1 strawberry margaritas through April 30 at participating locations.
All deals are available at participating locations unless otherwise noted. To be on the safe side, always check with your closest location before heading out.
