The Best Tax Day Freebies and Meal Deals

  • Office Depot: While digging through receipts and pay stubs, you probably realized you're holding onto a lot of stuff that needs to be discarded?  Office Depot (ODP) will shred up to 5 lbs. of items for free.  It typically charges 99 cents per pound.  The offer is valid through April 29, 2014, with this coupon.

  • Boston Market: Dubbed the "Tax Day, Tax Break," patrons can dine on two half-chicken individual meals, which include a choice of two home-style sides and cornbread for $10.40.  It's priced in honor of the 1040 IRS form. You don't even need a coupon, and according to a company statement, all locations nationwide are participating in the deal. 

  • Great American Cookie: If you have a sweet tooth, you can get a free chocolate chip cookie. No strings attached.

  • Arby's: Curly fries taste even better when they're free, right?  Arby's is offering them on Tax Day for a fourth straight year when you sign up for this coupon.

  • Sonic: Come in Tuesday to the drive-in restaurant and the roller-skating waiters will serve up half-priced drinks and slushies all day long.

  • Bruegger's Bagels: Okay, not a freebie at all, but you can buy a Big Bagel Bundle (otherwise known as a "Baker's Dozen" and two tubs of cream cheese) for $10.40. The coupon is on their Facebook page. The catch is, you need to "Like" them and become a fan.

  • Famous Dave's: Here's another $10.40 deal. The BBQ chain will deduct $10.40 off your check of $30 or more, excluding alcohol, until Thursday, April 17. The deal is only valid at participating locations, so call ahead. One way to get it: enter coupon code "TaxDeal" when ordering online.
