Taxes are due in the U.S. today and American businesses are attempting to make it a little easier with free products and discounts.
For those who are hungry after spending all their energy itemizing, Arby's is giving away snack-sized curly fries with the proper coupon. Bruegger's Bagels is selling 13 bagels and 2 tubs of cream cheese for $10.40. Boston Market is selling two half-chicken individual meals for $10.40.
From now until April 20, Pinkberry customers can bring in a proof of purchase from the day before and get a 50 percent discount on an equivalent frozen yogurt. Hard Rock Cafe has the most amusing discount as they are giving away a free burger, sandwich or salad between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to anyone who stands up and sings in front of the other diners.
For those who need to feel the cathartic release of shredding all those useless documents used for filing, Office Depot will shred up to 5 lbs. of paper for free until the end of April with the proper coupon. After shredding all those important forms, taxpayers can get a free massage bed session from Hydro massage until April 18 with the right coupon.
For the procrastinators, McDonald's is offering a free small coffee so people can caffeinate their filing to beat the deadline.
